Even though you’re still relatively young, you’ve begun to notice tiny frown lines and crow’s feet on your face, especially in the areas around the eyes and mouth. These thin wrinkles aren’t easily noticeable until you stretch or relax your facial skin via muscle contractions. Smiling, widening of the eyes, and pursing of the lips causes these dynamic wrinkles to form. Botox is a simple, non-surgical way to combat this visual sign of aging.
Botox injections can be completed in just minutes, and the results are quite dramatic. This is the perfect alternative to more aggressive forms of skin smoothing. In fact, this treatment is preferred by millions because it relaxes the skin and keeps it smooth without the need to treat the skin itself. Read on to learn more about this popular anti-aging procedure and how it can take years off your appearance.
Candidates For Botox Treatment
Most of us begin to notice those annoying smile lines and crow’s feet once we’ve passed our 40th birthday. The skin contains less collagen than it did when we were younger, It also retains less moisture. As we smile, frown, or make other expressions over and over, perhaps thousands of times in the course of a year or two, the skin eventually becomes pinched in the same places. This causes the tiny dynamic wrinkles to appear, and they can really detract from our appearance.
If this sounds like you, there’s a simple solution. You may feel that you aren’t ready to undergo abrasive skin resurfacing or the effects of a chemical peel. Botox injections will relax the facial muscles so that the marionette lines and crow’s feet become virtually unnoticeable.
How We Perform The Treatment
We need to examine your face so that we can determine the correct dosage as well as choose the appropriate treatment sites. We’ll watch as you make a variety of facial expressions. We’ll note the size and strength of the muscles that control facial skin movement.
After about three days, the full effect of the treatment is realized. The muscles don’t contract as forcefully as they did prior to treatment. The skin remains smoother, and this really changes the way others see you when you smile at them. You’ll present a much younger appearance to your friends and family.
The Botox fluid is effective for about four months. After this time, you’ll need repeat injections. After a year or two of treatments, your facial muscles will remain in a more relaxed state because they haven’t fully contracted for quite some time. This means less toxin is used for subsequent treatments, and a longer-lasting effect is enjoyed.
