Botox Wrinkle Reduction
Individuals turn to BOTOX® when they would like to address fine lines and wrinkles, but they do not want to do something drastic, like get a facelift. They realize that the treatment can help them to enjoy a younger, more vibrant appearance, but it is not an invasive procedure. Many individuals have questions about BOTOX® treatments. The more questions they ask, the more they will see that this injectable has been able to help many people address fine lines and wrinkles and feel more confident in their appearance.
It is good to understand how BOTOX® actually works. This product contains a highly purified protein solution. When this solution is injected into a muscle, the muscle becomes relaxed. When BOTOX® is injected into facial muscles, they relax and are no longer able to form the dynamic wrinkles that make a person look older.
Every single day, the muscles in a person’s face contract. They contract when a person smiles, frowns and makes other normal expressions. Over time, these lines become deeply etched in the face. Since the BOTOX® will relax the facial muscles, these dynamic wrinkles will not form. The skin that is on top of the muscles will stay smooth.
One thing that people worry about is that they will not be able to make normal facial expressions or that their face will look frozen after BOTOX® injections. Our skilled professionals will only treat certain muscles in a patient’s face. This means that dynamic wrinkles will not be able to form, but a person will still be able to make normal expressions. Also, individuals do not need to be concerned that they will lose sensation in their face, as BOTOX® does not affect the nerves.
There is no appropriate age for patients to begin using BOTOX®. Many individuals have used it in order to prevent wrinkles from forming, while others have used it to treat deep dynamic wrinkles. The best time for a person to use it is when their wrinkles bother them. At that point, they are ready to begin treatments that can help them to address their wrinkles.
