Many of the fine wrinkles and lines on your face can be treated with simple injections. We’re not talking about dermal fillers, however. The power of BOTOX® injections cannot be overstated. This cosmetic fix reduces the appearance of crow’s feet and thin wrinkling that occurs near the brows. It even helps smooth away horizontal banding on the forehead.
You’ve probably heard of BOTOX® treatments, but if you’re reading this, it’s likely that you haven’t tried this cosmetic fix before. Let us put your mind at ease about this skin-smoothing treatment. It’s not dangerous, and it doesn’t affect the chemistry of your skin. In fact, BOTOX® does its thing without treating the skin directly. Below, we give an overview of the treatment and how it works to erase dynamic wrinkles.
How These Wrinkles Form
Hundreds of thousands of muscle contractions over the years can begin to cause the skin surface to wrinkle. The muscles that lie just beneath your facial skin, the ones that control skin pinches, eventually cause mature adults’ skin to crease. This happens because your skin isn’t quite as supple as it was when you were a teen. There’s less moisture being retained, and there’s also less collagen and elastin in the skin layers.
Think of a dollar bill that gets crunched and bent. As it gets passed around from person to merchant to bank to another person, it gets pretty wrinkly. This is what happens to your facial skin over the years. BOTOX® treatments can help diminish the appearance of these fine wrinkles and lines.
Consultation and Treatment
You don’t just go to the drug store and buy this formula. We administer it in our office after examining your facial features. It takes a trained skin care professional to perform this treatment properly.
We ask you to make a series of expressions ranging from joy and wide-eyed astonishment to severe pouting and frowning. We will see where the wrinkles form and which muscles are causing them to do so.
We inject the BOTOX® fluid into selected regions of muscle tissue. The fluid slowly but surely begins to block nerve signal transmission. In effect, it’s like a muscle-relaxing treatment.
You’ll be amazed at how much smoother the skin surface appears. You’ll smile with confidence knowing that you don’t present yourself as a bored, old, tired individual. You’ll also smile because you realize that a more complex, aggressive treatment can wait for many more years.
