After wrinkle removal injection, the eyes appear swollen!The situation is very common, everyone's constitution is different, and their sensitivity to botulinum toxin is also different. Botulinum toxin is produced by an obligate anaerobic Clostridium spore (bacillus), Clostridium botulinum, which exists in the cytoplasm of bacteria and is released after bacterial death. It is a neurotoxin. Because of its temporary paralyzing effect on muscles, it can relax over-contracted muscles, so it was first discovered to treat spasmodic strabismus of the eye, and later applied to cosmetic treatment of wrinkles.

The toxicity of botulinum toxin can generally be metabolized by the human body in 3-6 months, and some on the market can be managed for about 1 year, so your problem mainly depends on your sensitivity to botulinum toxin.Beauty seekers don't have to worry. To observe the time when the swelling occurs, the methods are as follows:

1. Local cold compress: If it appears quickly after 24-48 hours after injection, it is usually caused by allergic reaction to the drug. Beauty seekers mainly apply cold compress to the local area to reduce the dilation of blood vessels. This situation will recover after the allergy subsides.

2. Moderate massage: If the beauty seeker gradually develops swelling after a week, it is due to the swelling caused by muscle relaxation and slow blood circulation after the wrinkle-removing needle injection. At the same time, due to the relaxation of the frontalis muscle, the eyebrows cannot be raised, which leads to the edema of the eyelid, and the relaxation of the orbicularis muscle of the eye causes the lower eye bag to bulge outward. In view of this situation, beauty seekers need to consider that they can do a moderate massage on the local area, and do more movements of opening and closing the eyes, which will have a certain recovery effect on the local swelling. It will take about three weeks, and the strength of the muscles will slowly recover. Once balanced, the situation is greatly improved.

How Does Botulinum Toxin injection work?

Botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that can block the release of acetylcholine after injection locally, thereby blocking the conduction of nerves to muscles. In the first step of botulinum toxin injection, the toxin binds to the neuron, and then enters the cytoplasm of the nerve cell. Finally, the toxin inhibits the action of acetylcholine on the neuromuscular connection to cause muscle paralysis, which is called neuromuscular function denervation. Clinically, botulinum toxin injections for wrinkle removal usually show a decrease in muscle movement within 2-3 days of injection.All Botulinum Toxin

Post-operative care of Botulinum Toxin 

After finishing the Botulinum Toxin injection course, the small points of postoperative maintenance also need to be paid attention to, so as to avoid losing the effect of the completed beauty plan.

Keep away from heat and strenuous exercise:

Try to stay away from heat sources (cooking, bathing, blowing hair) and strenuous exercise within four hours of injection to avoid improper relaxation of other muscles and unnatural expressions.

Avoid rubbing, tilting your head, lying down:

Avoiding these behaviors within four hours of injection, especially rubbing the injection site with your hands, can cause the drug to spread and cause facial asymmetry.

Facial expression activity:

If the injection is on the face, make more expressions (frowning, raising eyebrows) within a day, so that the muscles can fully absorb the drug.

Stimulating maintenance and high temperature differential activities:

Within a week after injection, avoid using more irritating maintenance (A acid, fruit acid, exfoliation), and activities with high temperature difference (sauna, oven, hot spring) as much as possible.

Return evaluation:

One week after the injection, it is necessary to return to the doctor to check the effect and evaluate whether it needs to be fine-tuned to achieve the most natural and ideal effect.

Injection maintenance is more and more popular among people. No matter what, it is necessary to find a professionally certified physician for personal diagnosis, to clearly inform their own conditions, and to maximize the effectiveness of the curative effect, which is not only beautiful, but also more natural.
