An alternative to aggressive skin resurfacing procedures, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are simple to perform and can produce dramatic results. Fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, near the eyes, around the corners of the mouth, and even on or near the jaw can be smoothed away without actually treating the skin directly. This cosmetic treatment is suitable for all skin textures and tones. It works by relaxing the muscles that lie directly beneath the skin and which control our facial expressions.
Age-Related Dynamic Wrinkles
After years and years of pouting, widening the eyes, and pursing the lips, creases form and become more noticeable once the individual has reached the middle-age years. These are called dynamic wrinkles because they formed due to the pinching or crinkling of the skin. The fine lines and crow’s feet become even more apparent after a certain age is reached because of the decreased amount of moisture and collagen in the skin layers.
Consultation and Treatment
You’ll want to contact us to schedule a consultation so that we can examine your facial and forehead skin. The severity of the wrinkling as well as the location of the fine lines determines the injection sites. We also need to look at the strength and size of the facial muscles in order to determine the proper dosage.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein solution that prevents nerve signals from commanding the muscles to contract. In the days after the fluid is injected, you’ll notice a diminishing of the crow’s feet and other lines. The sensory nerves aren’t affected, so you’ll still be able to feel your face and forehead after treatment.
The effects tend to last for multiple months. The solution goes neutral after this period and is flushed from the body along with other waste. Repeat injections are just as simple to perform as the original.
