Getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles doesn’t always require invasive surgeries. This is especially true if dynamic wrinkles represent the gist of your cosmetic concerns. These earliest signs of aging typically manifest at the corners of the eyes and mouth and across the forehead or brow. These are wrinkles that appear whenever you grimace, laugh, smile or make any other facial expressions. BOTOX® is a powerful and FDA-approved solution that can treat dynamic wrinkles without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
How and Why BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that has the power to block nerve signals to select muscle groups. With dynamic wrinkles, tension and movement in the expressive muscles are the primary cause for creases at the surface of the skin. During BOTOX® treatments, the solution is used to block nerve signals to the expressive muscles for decreased movement and the elimination of surface lines. The solution basically relaxes the muscles so that the skin on top of them does not display lines and wrinkles.
Are You a Good Candidate?
BOTOX® is not designed to treat more advanced signs of aging such as loose, sagging skin, deep creases along the nasolabial folds or significant volume loss. These injections are designed for minimizing or eliminating dynamic wrinkles at the mouth, eyes and brow. Good candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding what the treatment can and cannot accomplish.
What You Can Expect During Your BOTOX® Treatment
We will first consult with you to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment. From there, we can plan out a customized treatment. During the actual treatment session, the BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the treatment area. There is minimal to no recovery time, making the treatment extremely convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
You may see a noticeable decrease in dynamic wrinkles right away, but rest assured that continued improvements will appear in the days following the treatment. The results last for quite a long time, and the treatments can be repeated at our office as needed for ongoing benefits.
