BOTOX has become one of the most commonly performed anti-aging treatments in the United States in recent years. It has a proven track record of safety spanning decades. If you are dealing with deep forehead lines, nasal squint lines, or crow’s feet, you should consider undergoing BOTOX treatment for dynamic wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles, as opposed to static wrinkles, are formed by the underlying facial muscles. This fact means that they are a target for treatment with BOTOX. By preventing the contraction of these facial muscles, we are also preventing formation of the dynamic wrinkles that they cause.
BOTOX consists of a purified protein serum. In addition to its cosmetic uses, it can be used in medical settings to treat migraine headaches or hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that leads to excessive sweating. The product is most commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles found on the forehead, between the eyebrows, nasal squint lines, and crow’s feet. It has been used in cosmetic applications for decades.
How It Works
Some patients mistakenly believe that BOTOX is the same as injectable fillers. While injectable fillers work by increasing facial skin volume to smooth away wrinkles, this product temporarily paralyzes facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. After injection into the treatment area, BOTOX will gradually paralyze facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles. It blocks the affected wrinkle from receiving nerve transmissions to contract, which prevents the formation of dynamic wrinkles.
Once you have been approved for the treatment, the process should be swift. You will be asked to lie on a table, and the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed. We will mark various areas on your face for injection. We will then deliver BOTOX via injection into your facial muscles.
You’ll likely begin noticing initial results in a few days after your injections. Expect to notice a significant minimization in both the size and depth of your dynamic wrinkles within weeks after your injections. BOTOX treatment offers long-lasting results, but the effect is not permanent. Patients typically enjoy results lasting for months before the return of gradual facial muscle movement. Patients typically have treatments every few months. The more that you undergo the treatment, the longer your results will tend to endure.
