Getting rid of facial wrinkles can be a challenge. The annoying smile lines and crow’s feet are dynamic in nature, meaning they only appear when you make certain facial expressions. These are caused by straining of the skin when the facial muscles contract. BOTOX® is an effective way of dealing with this problem. You can still smile and frown, but when you do, dynamic wrinkles are virtually erased.
How BOTOX® was Developed
The treatment uses a purified protein solution to help relax the muscles in your face. After injections, the muscles beneath the facial skin become more relaxed and don’t contract to the same intensity. Your skin will remain smooth and taut, without the appearance of those pesky dynamic wrinkles.
Consultation and Treatment
It only takes us about 10 minutes to examine your face and determine suitable injection sites. Typically, there is no need for a topical numbing agent. The serum settles in beneath the skin and immediately begins to relax your facial muscles.
After about two days, you’ll notice that your facial skin remains taut no matter how much you smile or frown. The treatment is particularly effective in reducing the appearance of smile lines around the corners of the mouth and crow’s feet near the edges of the eyes. BOTOX® can even be used to eliminate small horizontal lines on the forehead.
BOTOX® treatments are effective for up to six months, after which time repeat injections will be necessary. The amount of serum used for each treatment continues to decrease because your facial muscles are slowly but surely becoming trained to stay relaxed.
Advantages of BOTOX® Treatments
The entire treatment session including consultation takes only about 30 minutes and can be done in the comfort of our office. There is no downtime afterward, meaning you can easily schedule your appointment around your other activities.
BOTOX® is preferred by many individuals because it is performed to correct dynamic wrinkles without the need for other chemicals, skin ablation, or skin resurfacing. This treatment is suitable for all skin types because the skin itself is not treated directly.
