If you are interested in a long-lasting wrinkle treatment, BOTOX® can likely help you. This is a treatment that can be used if you are already dealing with dynamic wrinkles or if you would like to prevent them. It has been approved for use by the FDA for cosmetic purposes.
Not everyone knows that you can have two types of wrinkles. One of the most popular types of wrinkles that you can have is called static wrinkles. Most of the time, older individuals have static wrinkles. They come as a result of losing volume in the face. You can think of how a balloon that was once inflated now has a saggy appearance when it no longer has as much air in it. In order to get rid of static wrinkles, you can use a non-surgical treatment like dermal fillers.
Dynamic wrinkles happen when your face is in motion. Just think of a person who is smiling. What happens to their face? Their muscles move, which causes their skin to crease. One area where you see movement of the muscles when a person smiles is around the outer corners of the eyes. This also happens when a person squints. These wrinkles are referred to as crow’s feet. One of the best ways to get rid of dynamic wrinkles is with BOTOX®.
Why is BOTOX® so effective at treating dynamic wrinkles? Because of the way it affects the muscles. It causes the muscles to relax. So, they do not contract with the same intensity as before treatment. This means that your skin in the area where the muscles are located is left smooth. It is one of the most effective ways to help you get a younger appearance and to say goodbye to your dynamic wrinkles.
It is good for all of our clients to understand that BOTOX® will not give them permanent results. BOTOX® lasts for about four to six months for most of our clients. The good news is these treatments can be repeated at our office multiple times per year for ongoing benefits.
