BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment used in the United States. The reason why this is the case is because it is effective and accomplishes what it promises to do. Despite it being a catchall phrase for addressing signs of aging, BOTOX® injections are actually designed to treat one specific problem.
Erase Dynamic Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that appear because of facial expressions that you make. One example is crow’s feet. Whenever you squint your eyes or smile, you have lines that appear at the outer corners of your eyes. When BOTOX® injections are given in the muscles that control facial movements, the muscles are able to relax. This means that the wrinkles either become less noticeable or not visible at all.
The results that you will get with these injections will depend on a couple of factors. For example, the depth of your wrinkles right now will affect how smooth your skin will become after the treatment. If you start using BOTOX® injections when you are in your younger years, perhaps your late 20s or early 30s, you may even be able to prevent dynamic wrinkles. You could be able to significantly push back the time when you start to deal with the telltale signs of aging.
Individuals who already have deeper dynamic wrinkles can definitely benefit from BOTOX® injections. They may not be completely erased, but the skin can still smooth out. A person in these circumstances can be left with a rejuvenated appearance.
Enjoy a Boost in Self-Confidence
Effectively dealing with unwanted wrinkles is going to make you feel better about yourself. When you look in the mirror and see an individual who looks happy, youthful, and full of life, you are going to feel much better overall. Individuals who have had BOTOX® injections often comment on the fact that their lives change for the better because of the boost of self-confidence they have received.
