Are you dealing with some of the common signs of aging on your face? We are talking about crow’s feet, frown lines, and those pesky lines and wrinkles that form around the mouth. These dynamic wrinkles are the result of making facial expressions over time. If you have been looking for a safe, non-surgical way to address these wrinkles, it may be time to think about BOTOX®.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that acts as a muscle relaxing agent. It works for dynamic wrinkles because it relaxes the muscles that cause them. When the underlying muscles are relaxed, the skin above them stays smooth rather than displaying lines and wrinkles.
Contrary to popular belief, BOTOX® is used to treat more than just wrinkles. It has been approved by the FDA to treat eyelid spasms, axillary hyperhidrosis, as well as migraines. However, it is most commonly used for wrinkle reduction. Patients who want to avoid undergoing invasive surgery like a facelift may first utilize BOTOX® to achieve a younger, more refreshed appearance.
How is a BOTOX® Treatment Performed?
These treatments are carried out in the comfort of our office. During the procedure, the solution is skillfully injected into the preselected muscles. Only minimal discomfort is involved, and the patient need not take a bunch of time off of work to recover.
What About the Results?
It is important to understand that the results are not going to be immediately visible. However, in the days and weeks following your treatment, you will start to see those lines and wrinkles fade away. The skin in the treated area will be smoother, showing less dynamic wrinkles.
A common misconception about BOTOX® is that it negatively affects the patient’s ability to make normal facial expressions. This isn’t true at all. After your BOTOX® treatment at our office, you will still be able to smile, frown and make all of your other facial expressions. The only difference will be that since the underlying muscles are relaxed, the skin above them will remain smoother.
