Lines and wrinkles tend to be the result of numerous but unavoidable conditions. Genetics, muscle movements and age can contribute towards their appearance, which means that acquiring these features is an unavoidable fact of life.
The one thing few people realize is that you don’t have to live with lines or creases on your face. You can minimize their appearance by relying upon certain procedures available from a skin care professional.
BOTOX® is one such procedure that can minimize lines, wrinkles and other imperfections in your face.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® works by interfering with the way parts of the body receive electrical impulses. This allows a signal to be significantly weakened or stopped altogether, which allows for certain areas of the body to remain relaxed.
This makes it ideal for treating conditions related to unconscious muscle flexing, such as the kind that occurs within your face.
Due to its potency, it will take a minute or more to be effective. This makes it an ideal way to treat lines, wrinkles and other problems without requiring the patient to undergo cosmetic surgery.
How Does It Work?
The skin sits atop a layer of muscles. Collagen sits atop those muscles to provide support for the skin, adding fullness and strength to it. As muscles flex underneath, collagen can become displaced, making certain wrinkles and lines appear far more pronounced.
The problem with treating these lines pertains to the way they exist. Treatments that affect the collagen layer will eventually be broken down and pushed out of the way, allowing sharp lines to re-emerge.
BOTOX® works by targeting the underlying muscles. It interferes with the electrical signals nerves receive, which relaxes the muscles. This can correct some of the problems that muscles can have while giving the body the pause it needs to repair the collagen layer underneath the skin.
This makes BOTOX® effective for the immediate and long-term relief of certain wrinkles and other imperfections in the face.
What Types of Wrinkles Can BOTOX® Treat?
Smile lines and wrinkles that can occur on the brow are examples of wrinkles that can have their appearance minimized by using BOTOX®. It relaxes the underlying muscles to allow for the face to appear with significantly fewer wrinkles.
Other types of wrinkles may require a combination of treatments to correct. This means that BOTOX® will require the expertise of an experienced skin care professional for the most successful treatment.
