MUSCLE RELAXING EFFECTS OF HYALURONIC ACID
Whereas the muscles of the body atrophy without exercise, those of the face can tighten. Facial muscles originate on the facial bones and insert into the skin, bringing about movement and expression. Movement of the facial muscles such as grimacing, talking, frowning and maintaining a stiff upper lip causes the muscles to gradually shorten and tighten over the years. Short tight, constantly active muscles literally wear away the tissues of the face, causing volume loss, facial sagging, expression lines but also facial pain in some people.
Fillers, when injected above a muscle act as a tiny massage ball, softening the muscles of the face, slowing aging and enhancing blood supply. Amazing.
