How Does it Work?
Injectable smoothers are highly purified proteins with the ability to (temporarily) block the nerve cells that cause muscle contraction, essentially paralysing the muscles. As a result, the injected muscles can no longer contract, causing facial wrinkles and lines to relax and soften.
This treatment also blocks the release of the neurotransmitter that stimulates the sweat glands, making it an effective hyperhidrosis treatment. By inhibiting the activity of the sweat glands, it can then be used as a treatment for sweaty palms, as well as a treatment for hyperhidrosis of the underarms.
The procedure is quick and relatively painless. It is also highly customisable and can be tailored to a patient’s needs, whether it’s for anti-ageing purposes or medical reasons like hyperhidrosis. Additionally, visible results are observed within a few days of the injections.
This treatment is a non-surgical one, which means that there is little to no downtime. Patients can resume their day-to-day activities after the procedure.
Safety & Side Effects
Injectable smoothers are administered just below the skin’s surface using very fine needles. Although it is a relatively short and painless procedure, a numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area to ensure a comfortable treatment process. There may be some bruising at the injection site, but this subsides after a few hours.
Patients will usually notice improvement within 2-3 days after the treatment. The effects are temporary, and will typically last around 4 to 6 months.
This treatment is conducted by a certified doctor.
