Everyone wants to look and feel their best, and this includes a pleasing facial appearance. We adults battle fine lines and wrinkles that make us look older than we really are. Smoothing away those smile lines and crow’s feet is simpler than you might think. To give your confidence a real boost, consider Botox® treatments.
This cosmetic fix isn’t a permanent solution to the problem of age-related skin wrinkling, but it’s the perfect choice for those who are unsure about any sort of intensive skin repositioning treatment. The aesthetic improvement can be quite positively dramatic, and the results last for months. You can indeed take years off your appearance with simple Botox® injections, and you need not worry about your current skin tone or texture.
Smooth Your Skin without Surgery
Most of the age-related skin wrinkles on the face become much more apparent when the skin is pulled or pinched. In other words, smiling or pouting, narrowing the eyes or pursing the lips causes these wrinkles to become alarmingly visible. These dynamic wrinkles are the result of years of making facial expressions, and as the skin ages, it contains less collagen and moisture, so the wrinkling becomes far more severe.
However, if the upper-level facial muscles remain in a more or less relaxed state, the facial expressions are made just as easily. The difference is that the wrinkles no longer appear or are at least far less visible. This is how Botox® works.
The Consultation Is Important
We will sit down with you and examine your facial features, watch to see where dynamic wrinkles appear when you smile or pout, and create a customized treatment that will smooth away those smile lines and crow’s feet.
The treatment itself takes only minutes to perform. The fluid is a purified protein solution, and this is the magic ingredient. When we inject the fluid into the muscle tissues, the solution begins to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. A couple of days after treatment, you’ll begin to notice a smoother skin surface where dynamic wrinkles were previously visible.
The aesthetic improvements in facial appearance last for about four months. After that, you’ll need repeat injections performed. Each treatment involves the use of less Botox® fluid because the muscles are being trained to stay in a non-contracted state.
A Simple Treatment
Many of the skin-smoothing and skin rejuvenating treatments involve the use of chemicals that permeate the skin layers. Other treatments employ special instruments that scour the skin surface. Some treatments involve surgery to reposition or ablate the skin. Botox® is much simpler, and it does not treat the skin directly.
