Let’s face it – there are some things about the aging process that are just not fun. It causes many unwanted changes to your body, and many of them may be unavoidable. Although you practice a regular skin care routine, drink plenty of water, and do everything possible for you skin, it is impossible to maintain perfect skin forever. While it may feel like a surgical treatment is your only choice, that is simply not true! Consider Botox® treatments! These injectable treatments relax the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles and lines created by your natural facial expressions. As you emote, the muscles in your face contract, creating or worsening lines. While these may not necessarily be a direct sign of aging, they do take time to form.
What Are Botox® Treatments?
Botox® treatments are FDA-approved treatments to reduce and smooth the appearance of dynamic wrinkles or lines. It is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive solution to minimize the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
By choosing this treatment, this allows you a good alternative to surgical treatments.
How Do the Treatments Work?
Botox® is made of botulinum protein A and it is a neuromodulator. As a neuromodulator, when it is injected, it alters how nerve signals interact with facial muscles. Botox® blocks nerve signals from reaching muscles in treatment areas. By blocking the signals, this prevents the deepening of facial lines. It may also be used preventatively as a way to prevent lines from occurring.
What Could I Expect from Botox® Treatments?
Botox® treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. There is little to no discomfort associated with treatment, but you may experience some slight pinching at the injection site. However, there is no set downtime associated with a treatment session. You should be able to return to your normal daily activities!
Most people enjoy the results of Botox® treatments shortly after treatment. However, it is important to remember results are semi-permanent. A regular series of treatments may be recommended to promote and preserve the best results.
This treatment may be a suitable treatment option for those seeking non-surgical alternatives to traditional aesthetic treatments. Most generally healthy adults may qualify for treatment, but it is important to approach treatment with realistic goals and expectations.
