Every time you use your facial muscles to communicate via expression, small amounts of tension are created and stored away. As time passes, this tension gradually manifests as fine lines and creases that travel across the brow, and radiate outwards from the mouth and eyes. These are known as dynamic wrinkles given that they are both caused by facial motion, and most apparent when the expressive muscles are engaged. If you have perioral wrinkles, crow’s feet or frown lines, BOTOX could be the perfect solution for you.
What BOTOX Is And How It Works
BOTOX when injected into facial areas that have dynamic wrinkles, releases stored tension. As a result, the expressive muscles relax, and the creases at the surface of the skin are smoothed away. BOTOX accomplishes this by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that control facial movement. Best of all, when done well the effects of BOTOX are short-term, and people who use this solution as part of their anti-aging routines can still make a range of totally natural-looking facial expressions.
Why Choose BOTOX?
Unlike static wrinkles, sagging skin, and deep, facial hollows, dynamic wrinkles often do not require an invasive treatment. These creases are directly related to the tension within the expressive muscles, rather than being caused by an age-related breakdown of the actual skin and its integrity. At this stage of the aging process, face lift procedures and other invasive, surgical treatments are premature. BOTOX is far better for creating a youthful and line-free visage given that there is traditionally limited to no downtime with these injections, no incisions, and no need for tissue removal. This fast, simple, and incredibly popular treatment can usually be completed within just minutes.
During Your BOTOX Appointment
During your BOTOX treatment, your provider will use a thin, short needle to deliver small amounts of BOTOX into any facial areas with dynamic creasing. Only a very small amount of BOTOX will be inserted at each injection site. This way, your face will still look and move naturally, even as tension is released and dynamic wrinkles fade away. Once your provider is done, you can immediately return to your regular activities. Apart from a limited amount of redness and swelling, BOTOX patients rarely have any significant aftereffects to contend with.
Using BOTOX As Part Of A Multi-Tiered Anti-Aging Plan
BOTOX is incredibly effective as a standalone, anti-aging procedure. For those with a broader range of age-related concerns to address, however, BOTOX can also be an integral part of many individualized and integrated, cosmetic treatments. For instance, you may have both dynamic wrinkles and signs of facial volume loss. You may even have superficial, aesthetic concerns at the surface of the skin such as dark spots, sun spots, enlarged pores, or mild to moderate acne scarring. In these instances, BOTOX can be safely paired with micro-dermabrasion, dermal fillers, skin resurfacing procedures, and may other non-invasive treatments.
