You don’t have to undergo surgery to diminish the appearance of fine wrinkles and crow’s feet on your face. So long as these small, dynamic wrinkles appear only when you create facial expressions, they can be smoothed out with BOTOX®. The recommended alternative to more abrasive treatment techniques, BOTOX® involves neither surgery nor skin resurfacing. The procedure takes only minutes, and the resulting smoother skin lasts for months. If tiny creases, wrinkles and smile lines are getting you down, consider this quick and convenient treatment. You’ll enjoy smiling without the worry of age-related wrinkles.
The Ideal Candidate
Mature adults often experience small wrinkles in areas around the corners of the mouth and eyes. Dynamic wrinkles, which form when the skin is relaxed during muscle contraction, also appear on the forehead and around the edges of the nose. These are the type of wrinkles that can be treated with BOTOX®.
The ideal candidate will be showing signs of age-related crow’s feet and smile lines. These lines develop as a result of thinning skin and a decrease in the amount of collagen produced by the body.
Consultation and Treatment
We want to consult with the client so that we can give more in-depth information about how BOTOX® works and what the likely visual result will be. When we examine the facial features, we pay particular attention to the areas where dynamic wrinkles form when the client smiles or frowns. This allows us to select the most suitable injection sites.
BOTOX® is administered as an injectable treatment. When it is skillfully injected into certain facial muscles, they become relaxed. Impulses no longer travel to the muscles, and the muscles can therefore no longer contract.
The injections take only minutes to be completed. Once the treatment is finished, the upper-level muscles will eventually no longer fully contract. This means that the skin remains smooth because the muscles no longer cause relaxation of the skin layers. Dynamic wrinkles no longer appear.
A Repeatable Treatment
Not only is BOTOX® a simple cosmetic treatment, but the effects also last for months, even after the solution has been flushed from the body. Eventually, the muscles can become trained to stay relaxed, so subsequent treatments use less and less of the fluid.
There’s virtually no downtime for the client after treatment. After your session is completed, you can go right back to most all of your everyday activities.
Don’t Let Your Age Get You Down
Fortunately, you don’t have to put up with smile lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles. Those unwanted lines and wrinkles can be diminished simply by relaxing the facial muscles.
