As you get older, you are going to see more and more wrinkles on your face. Thankfully, there is something you can do about them. However, before you treat wrinkles on your face, you need to know that there are different kinds of wrinkles, and there are different kinds of wrinkle treatments that are available.
Types of Wrinkles
One kind of wrinkle that you are going to experience on your face is a static wrinkle. In fact, you are likely to experience this kind of wrinkle all over your body as you get older. The reason why static wrinkles occur is because you lose fat in your body as you get older. We are not talking about belly fat or fat on your thighs, even though this is what most of us would like. We are talking about fat in areas that affect the way our skin looks. When you lose fat in your face, it causes your skin to sag. So, when a person is dealing with static wrinkles, they can treat them using dermal fillers. Fillers take the place of lost fat in the face or other parts of the body. It leaves the skin on top smooth and wrinkle-free.
The other type of wrinkle that you are going to experience is dynamic wrinkles. Actually, you have been experiencing dynamic wrinkles your entire life. Even when you were a baby or a small child, you had dynamic wrinkles. These happen because you make facial expressions. Whenever you cried, smiled or made other expressions, dynamic wrinkles appeared on your face. Unfortunately, as we get older, dynamic wrinkles cause our skin to become creased. This means that we begin to see things like frown lines and crow’s feet. Even when we are not smiling or crying, we still see the lines from the facial expression we have made. This kind of wrinkle can be treated using BOTOX®.
Wrinkle Reduction with Botox
It is very likely that you have heard of BOTOX®. Almost everyone has heard of it now because it is so popular. One of the main reasons why BOTOX® is so popular, not only in the United States but around the world, is because it works. It has helped people to treat their dynamic wrinkles and to have a much more refreshed and youthful look.
The reason why BOTOX® can treat dynamic wrinkles is because it changes the way the muscles in the face work. The solution can be injected into the muscles in order to relax them. It does this without the need for surgery or downtime.
