BOTOX® is a great way to help you reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face. It is very easy to tell which wrinkles are dynamic wrinkles. Make an expression. Perhaps you can smile or frown. When you see your skin change because the muscles contract in your face, you will see dynamic wrinkles. For example, when you smile, you are likely going to see that the skin around the outer corner of your eyes bunches up, and you may see some lines on your cheeks. Or when you make an angry look in the mirror, you will probably see that you get lines on your forehead. These are all dynamic wrinkles. They happen because of action or movement.
The reason why BOTOX® is effective in treating dynamic wrinkles is because it affects your muscles. Basically, it causes them to relax. As a result, the skin on top of the muscles is smooth and line-free.
When we talk to you about your goals and how you would like to look after BOTOX® treatment, we can determine where the product should be injected. The actual procedure is quite simple. The BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. The client is free to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment session, making it a convenient treatment for people with busy schedules.
It is important to be in good health to qualify for BOTOX®. When you come in for your consultation, one of the main things that we are going to do is be sure that you do not have any serious health problems that would interfere with the treatment. The good news is that most people who want BOTOX® qualify for it.
If after looking in the mirror you see that dynamic wrinkles are not the thing that is causing you to look older, you may notice that you have a lot of static wrinkles. Static wrinkles are there all of the time, no matter what expression you have on your face. Static wrinkles are the result of gravity pulling down on your face and the fact that you are continuously losing facial volume as you get older. You will see static wrinkles no matter if you smile or just have a blank expression on your face. We also have tools like dermal fillers that can be used to treat these types of wrinkles.
