Whenever you laugh, smile, frown or make any other facial expression, your expressive muscles are engaged. Years of contracting these muscles can take their toll. Over time, tension starts to build, and this leads to the development of dynamic wrinkles across the visage. This is why people often notice their very first fine lines around the eyes and mouth or at the brow.
Fortunately, BOTOX® injections are making it easy to turn back the proverbial hands of time. This purified protein can affect expressive muscles. Once this happens, dynamic wrinkles are temporarily relaxed and the face regains a smooth, even and youthful appearance.
Why Use BOTOX®?
This is an FDA-approved solution that is trusted by countless consumers throughout the world. In fact, BOTOX® injections for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles are currently among the most popular cosmetic procedures available.
BOTOX® injections typically take just 10 minutes to complete. Discomfort is minimal and there is absolutely no aftercare or downtime. Any side effects, such as redness, usually dissipate on their own within several hours of treatment.
Due to the fact that BOTOX® is only a temporary solution to fine line and wrinkles, there is no risk of getting stuck with results you don’t like. The results of BOTOX® injections last three to six months, and our provider can safely repeat your treatment one to two times per year, as needed.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® works by temporarily blocking nerve messages to the expressive facial muscles. Once these messages are blocked, the expressive muscles relax and the surface skin moves out.
Are You a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Injections?
Dynamic wrinkles are often categorized as superficial wrinkles given that they do not involve any significant volume loss or a loss of skin elasticity. BOTOX® is considered an ideal treatment for superficial, dynamic wrinkles because these procedures are safe, entirely non-invasive and short enough to have performed on a lunch break.
BOTOX® is not, however, suitable for the treatment of severe facial wrinkling. People with deep facial creases and excessive, sagging skin may need to pursue alternative cosmetic solutions. Our provider will review your cosmetic concerns and help you determine the best treatment for you during your consultation.
What to Expect During Your BOTOX® Treatment
During these procedures, the BOTOX® solution is simply injected into the desired areas. Once your injections are complete, you will be free to leave and can immediately resume your regular activities.
