If you have concerns about your appearance being negatively affected by small, dynamic wrinkles on the face and forehead, you might be interested in learning about how BOTOX® treatments can help smooth out these annoying smile lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® minimizes the appearance of wrinkles that form when you make certain facial expressions. This is a proven method for eliminating these dynamic wrinkles, and it is a suitable treatment for those who are not ready for surgery or abrasive resurfacing.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
BOTOX® was originally developed as a treatment for muscle spasms. It works by affecting the nerves that connect to specific muscles. Our brains tell our muscles to contract by sending nerve impulses. These impulses don’t reach the muscle tissue when the nerve action is relaxed via BOTOX® injections.
Since BOTOX® affects the muscles, only certain areas can be treated using this method. Our facial and forehead muscles that lie near the surface contract in such a manner as to pull on or relax the skin surface. This is when small dynamic wrinkles such as smile lines form.
The ideal candidate, therefore, will be a mature adult who is experiencing small lines or wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, near the edges of the eyes and on the forehead. A consultation with our experienced practitioner will reveal whether or not this is the appropriate treatment for you.
During the Treatment
BOTOX® is an injectable fluid that contains a purified protein solution. During this treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into preselected areas. No downtime is involved after your appointment, so you can resume your normal activities right away.
With this treatment, the client can still smile, frown and make other facial expressions, but the fine wrinkles and smile lines aren’t anywhere near as apparent. In most cases, the treatment yields results that last for up to four months. Afterwards, the treatment can be repeated, but less BOTOX® fluid is used because the muscles are slowly becoming trained to stay relaxed.
Advantages Over Other Treatments
BOTOX® is suitable for nearly everyone because it doesn’t actually treat the skin. It is an extremely convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles. Treatments can be safely repeated at our office multiple times per year for ongoing benefits.
