It’s interesting to see how a person’s view of their skin care changes as they get older. Just think back to when you were a little child and it was time to go to bed. It was such a struggle for your parents to get you to wash your face. However, as you get older and realize the link that exists between good skincare and a youthful appearance, you start to do more things to take care of your skin. It’s just normal for a person to be more concerned about caring for their skin as they age. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin changes. While we currently can’t do much to reverse the aging process, we can do a lot to reverse many of the signs that come with it. Among the most effective of these methods is BOTOX® with our specialist in Plano, TX.
What are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Unfortunately, the changes that come with aging are rarely positive. We start to notice wrinkles developing on our skin. Some of the more common forms of wrinkles are crow’s feet. These are the wrinkles that develop along the sides of the eyes. Crow’s feet, as well as wrinkles that develop in our forehead and around the mouth, are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. They are called dynamic wrinkles because they appear when a person makes a facial expression or makes some other form of dynamic movement with their facial muscles.
Thankfully, there are many treatments available that can help you get rid of dynamic wrinkles. The most popular among these treatments is BOTOX®. This injectable treatment contains a protein that has been purified. When the protein is injected into the treated areas, it affects the signals between the nerves and the facial muscles. As a result, facial muscles do not contract as forcefully as they did before treatment. This, in turn, leads to a reduction in the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® is a very safe procedure. It has been approved by the FDA and has been used millions of times on people with positive results.
Why is BOTOX® So Popular?
One of the reasons why people love this injectable so much is because treatment sessions are very convenient. You simply walk into the office, receive your injections and go back to your usual routine. This makes it a very convenient treatment option for patients who have a busy schedule.
What Can I Expect?
You should not worry if you do not see the results of your BOTOX® treatments immediately after the injections are given. This is because the injections take a few days to kick in. You should start to see and feel the difference around four days after you have the treatment performed. Little by little, you’re going to see an improvement in your appearance, and this improvement will last for multiple months. Once the treatment begins to wear off, all you need to do is return for touch-up treatments.
BOTOX® is one of the most powerful tools on the market for treating dynamic wrinkles. It is effective, safe and convenient. If you are interested in smoothing away your dynamic wrinkles, we can help you learn more at Advanced Surgical Arts in Plano, TX. Contact us today to book your consultation!
