BOTOX® is one of the most effective cosmetic treatments for wrinkled facial skin. Most adults begin to experience dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that form when the facial muscles are contracted. The relaxing or pulling of the skin surface causes the formation smile lines and crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes and mouth. Thinning skin that is no longer retaining moisture and has less collagen is more easily wrinkled, and the appearance of these smile lines can have a negative effect on one’s appearance. No surgery, no chemical peels and no abrasive resurfacing are involved.
Benefits of BOTOX®
Botox doesn’t treat the skin directly. Rather, it inhibits transmission of signals from the nerve endings to the upper-level facial muscles. This means that smoothing of the skin surface is realized without the need for surgery or any sort of skin repositioning.
Another benefit of this treatment is that it actually trains the muscles to stay relaxed. The effect of BOTOX® lasts for anywhere up to six months. During this time, the facial muscles that control our appearance when we smile or frown never contract fully. Subsequent treatments typically use less of the fluid because the muscles stay in a relaxed state.
BOTOX® doesn’t paralyze the muscles or deaden the nerve endings in the skin. This means that the individual won’t be overcome by a feeling of numbness, and it’s just as easy to frown, smile and laugh as it was before the treatment was administered. The only difference is that these expressions won’t result in wrinkles.
How It Works
We always consult with our client before administering this treatment. We look at the face closely and note the appearance of dynamic wrinkles when certain facial expressions are made. This helps us determine the best injection sites and the best amount of solution to use for the treatment.
BOTOX® is injected just beneath the skin and directly into the upper-level muscle tissues. The treatment begins to work almost immediately, so you may see some results just after receiving your injections. However, the real results show themselves in the following days. After a few days, clients notice that the skin around the mouth or eyes no longer wrinkles when smiling or frowning occurs. This effect alone can make the individual look much younger.
Injections can be repeated at regular intervals. If you are in generally good health, you will likely make a good candidate for this treatment.
