Blackheads & Enlarged Pores
The formation of wrinkles occurs due to insufficient amounts of elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. The elasticity and firmness of the skin depend on these substances. The natural process of elastin and collagen production in the skin slows down significantly by the age of 25. During this period, the first wrinkles begin to form. Beauty products from Cutis Medical will help maintain skin tone and youthful appearance.

One of the most popular treatments to reduce wrinkles is the subcutaneous injection of botulinum toxin. Most products contain complexing protein that acts as a stabilizer.
The main reason for the formation of wrinkles is the hyperactivity of facial muscles, which have two points of attachment: to the skin or bones of the facial skull. Due to their overstrain, the skin begins to stretch and forms folds and creases.
Cosmetologists say that indications for subcutaneous injections are age-related changes in the skin (nasolabial folds, facial wrinkles, crow’s feet wrinkles, wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows).
The following types of wrinkles are distinguished:
Based on the cause of the formation of wrinkles, they can be divided into mimic and static. Static wrinkles are associated with age-related changes. The skin gets older and does not produce enough hyaluronic acid and collagen to retain moisture in the tissues, which play an important role in maintaining a youthful appearance.
When the skin loses its elasticity and firmness, it loses its ability to keep its appearance unchanged. This type of wrinkles is also called gravitational since their occurrence is due to the fact that under the influence of gravity, some areas of the face may slightly change. Wrinkles can form where the skin has lost its elasticity.
Mimic wrinkles begin to form on the face as a result of the movement and work of the muscles. Every day, our mimic muscles are used so often that wrinkles can appear in the places of their contraction. You squint in the sun, smile, blink, and you may not notice how wrinkles form over time due to these emotions. By the age of 20, these wrinkles can be seen on the forehead, near the outer corners of the eyes, near the lips. Over time, they become deeper and can gradually occur in other areas of the face, such as on the upper eyelids, near the nose, around the eyes. After the age of forty, mimic and static wrinkles become very noticeable.
How Botulinum Toxins work
The mechanism of action of botulinum toxins is that they can block the nerve endings in facial muscles. Because of this, the synaptic transmission of nerve impulses is interrupted, and the muscle relaxes, which causes muscle paralysis. As a result of such transformations, the depth of the wrinkle becomes smaller, it may even disappear completely.
The action of botulinum toxins has a cumulative effect, increasing within 5 days. The maximum effect can be achieved after a week. This feature is associated with a slow process of penetration into the nerve endings of the muscles.
Botulinum toxin injections lead to a significant weakening of the connection between facial muscles and nerve endings. This process of relaxation of mimic wrinkles allows you to smooth out the skin and fully restore the supply of collagen and elastin in the skin, which means that the formation of new wrinkles and folds will completely stop. It is worth noting that the paralysis of mimic wrinkles does not affect the nerve pathways and does not impair blood circulation.
