You may be noticing the appearance of smile lines and crow’s feet around your eyes and mouth whenever you make certain facial expressions. You widen your eyes, purse your lips, or frown, and suddenly you look much older than you really are. This visual sign of aging skin is caused by a decrease in the amount of moisture your skin retains and also from a lack of skin suppleness. Most of the treatments for dynamic wrinkling involve skin ablation or resurfacing. If you feel you aren’t ready for any sort of aggressive treatment, BOTOX may be the appropriate alternative.
This cosmetic treatment is popular because it doesn’t involve the use of chemicals, lasers, or pharmaceutical creams. In fact, BOTOX doesn’t treat the skin directly. Instead, it relaxes the facial muscles so that when you smile or frown, the skin remains smooth and wrinkle-free. Now is the time to consider BOTOX for the improvement of your overall facial features.
What BOTOX Does
This treatment is administered via the injection of a fluid containing botulinum toxin. Don’t worry, the toxin is diluted. The toxin is cultured in the laboratory and derived from a natural source. The toxin blocks nerve signals. The upper-level facial muscles don’t contract fully because they no longer receive instructions from the brain.
This results in less pinching or pulling of the skin when you make frowning, pouting, or smiling expressions. The dynamic wrinkles that otherwise form near the corners of the mouth, above the nose bridge, and around the eyes are far less noticeable.
Consultation Before Treatment
BOTOX isn’t a try-it-at-home remedy. We are specialists in skin health care, and we’ll know just how much BOTOX fluid to use and exactly where to inject it once we have completed an examination of the facial features. We’ll ask you to purse your lips, narrow your eyes and smile a wide smile. This lets us see the severity of the wrinkling. We then accurately measure the dosage based on the depth of the muscles into which we’ll inject the fluid.
Simple In-House Treatment Procedure
It takes only a few minutes to complete the injection procedure. You won’t notice much of anything different for about three days. After this time, however, you’ll see fewer wrinkles because the upper-level muscles into which the fluid was injected are less able to contract. Your facial skin looks smoother because it isn’t being pulled or constricted as it was prior to treatment.
Your face won’t feel numb after treatment. Sensory nerves aren’t affected by the toxin. You’ll enjoy positive results for about five months. Repeat treatments are simple to perform, and you’ll notice results lasting longer and longer after each treatment. This is because your muscles are slowly but surely becoming used to being in a semi-relaxed state.
