Just about everyone in the developed world has heard about BOTOX®. BOTOX® is among one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today, and for good reason.
This nonsurgical treatment is designed to help people battling with dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that you get in your face when you smile, frown, or make other facial expressions. Many people also develop crow’s feet along the sides of their eyes, which become more apparent when they smile. Some people will develop wrinkles that will go from their nose down to the side of their mouth. Others will develop dynamic wrinkles on their nose.
Dynamic wrinkles are frustrating because they make a person look older. But what’s even more insidious about dynamic wrinkles is that if they’re not treated, over time the dynamic wrinkles will actually etch into your skin, and you will be left with static wrinkles that will be there whether you make a facial expression or not. All of these things serve to prematurely age a person and damage their skin.
BOTOX® is designed to temporarily relax some of the facial muscles that lead to dynamic wrinkles. It still allows you to make all of the facial expressions you normally would. The only difference is that you will make these expressions without generating dynamic wrinkles. So your skin looks smoother, you look younger, and you give off a more rejuvenated look.
With all of the benefits that come from BOTOX®, it’s understandable that people are lining up in droves to have the procedure performed. In order to qualify for BOTOX®, you should be in generally good health. Although this treatment is nonsurgical, it is still a medical procedure. So the healthier you are, the better your body is going to respond to the treatment.
During your consultation, we will help you decide if BOTOX® is the best course of action for you. If it is, we will walk you through exactly what to expect. In general, each BOTOX® treatment session takes no more than ten minutes to complete and requires no downtime. A few days after treatment, you will get to see your dynamic wrinkles disappear and enjoy your results for up to four months.
