The smile lines and crow’s feet that negatively affect our appearance can be smoothed away without the need for abrasive or harsh measures. The simplest way to treat unwanted dynamic wrinkles is with BOTOX®. This treatment doesn’t actually affect the skin surface via resurfacing. Instead, it allows the upper-level facial muscles to remain in a relaxed state. Smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions are still performed with ease following the treatment, but the lines and wrinkles that would otherwise form become far less noticeable, or non-existent. We highly recommend this simple cosmetic treatment to our clients who bring us concerns about age-related dynamic wrinkling.
An Effective Non-Surgical Treatment
BOTOX® is injected directly into the muscles that control our facial movements. This doesn’t result in a numbed face, nor does it affect the larger muscles that allow us to move our jaws, narrow our eyes, and raise our cheeks. However, the nerve effect is quite pronounced, and the results can be dramatic yet natural-looking. The individual who receives BOTOX® injections enjoys a smoother skin surface in areas where forehead lines and crow’s feet would otherwise form.
The All-Important Consultation
We need to examine the client’s face closely to notice where these dynamic wrinkles form and how severe they are. This helps us determine the dosage as well as the precise injection sites. Not all wrinkles can be treated with BOTOX®. Set wrinkles and deeper folds tend to require a different treatment. When we consult with the client, we will give realistic outcome expectations.
BOTOX® can be safely injected into the muscles, but the effect is realized only if the proper muscle tissue is affected. The nerve endings that control the contractions of these muscles must be properly affected without causing the muscles to relax too far and droop. This is why the consultation is so important. And that’s why only a trained expert should be trusted to administer this treatment.
