Are you interested in finding out how you can restore your youthful appearance? You likely know that there are a variety of non-invasive and minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments on the market that can minimize or completely erase wrinkles. We would like to tell you about the benefits that you can receive from using BOTOX®.
If this is your first time learning about BOTOX®, you may wonder what it is. This is a treatment that is designed to relax facial muscles. It is perfect for reducing or eliminating crow’s feet, frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles.
Why Do We Develop Dynamic Wrinkles?
Some individuals are unaware of the fact that not all wrinkles are the same. It is possible to develop both dynamic and static wrinkles as you get older. Static wrinkles are wrinkles that come as a result of the changes that take place in the skin as a person ages and a loss of facial volume. Injectables are a great option for addressing static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles develop because of the facial expressions that we make every single day. Every time we smile, frown, grimace, or make other facial expressions, our muscles contract, which causes our skin to fold. When we are young, it is easy for our skin to bounce back after making facial expressions. However, as the years go by and as our skin changes, those temporary creases become permanent.
How BOTOX® Addresses Dynamic Wrinkles
When an individual has BOTOX® treatments performed, a thin needle is used to inject the product. It is a well-tolerated treatment that only takes a couple of minutes. Just the right amount of the product is injected into specific muscles in order to relax the muscles and soften facial contractions. This means that the skin on top of the muscles is able to relax. So the wrinkles and folds disappear.
The results that you will see after your BOTOX® treatment are not immediate. It usually takes at least two or three days from the time the injections are given to start to see the results. By the seventh day, you should see the full results. Most of our clients can enjoy the benefits of their treatment for about three months.
Are You a Good Candidate?
BOTOX® injections are perfect for both men and women who are looking to restore their youthful appearance. These treatments are perfect for individuals who would like to refresh their appearance but do not want others to necessarily tell that they had work done. The results are subtle and look natural.
