You’ve probably heard of BOTOX® and its treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. You may also be concerned that an injectable treatment carries the risk of side effects. Rest assured, this simple skin-smoothing treatment is safe, and it’s the most popular treatment in the world for the reduction of facial wrinkles and lines.
Oftentimes, our facial skin begins to show the effects of aging sooner than we might expect. Dynamic wrinkles are those annoying lines and crow’s feet that become prominent around our eyes and forehead. These wrinkles don’t look like much when our facial skin is relaxed, but they can become apparent when we widen our eyes or just smile a wide smile. The simplest way to deal with these facial lines is to receive BOTOX® injections.
Talk to an Expert
You’ll want to know exactly how this type of treatment works and how it differs from other procedures. You could be thinking that you’re too young to require skin repositioning, and you might be wary of ablative procedures, those that remove skin layers. Many problems can occur with treatments involving resurfacing. When we consult with you, we’ll put your mind at ease by describing how BOTOX® treatments help smooth away dynamic wrinkles without the risk of bleaching, hyperpigmentation, or other side effects.
Everyone’s case is different, and that’s why a consultation is necessary before administering BOTOX® injections. The size and strength of the facial muscles must be examined so that we will know just where to perform this treatment.
Dynamic wrinkles form because your facial skin is constantly being pulled and pinched. After many years of smiling and frowning, these lines become more and more prominent. We want to target the muscles that cause these facial expressions because those are the ones that will be affected by the injectable fluid.
Performing the Treatment
After examining your facial features and watching as you make a series of expressions, we’ll know just where to inject the BOTOX® fluid. This fluid prevents nerve signals from the brain from reaching the muscles that lie just below the skin surface. We can inject the fluid into specific areas of muscle tissue so that only a small portion of skin surface is free from pinching or stretching.
You can still make the usual facial expressions, but you’ll do so without worrying about the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. This does wonders for your appearance and self-confidence.
