Today, we have more choices than ever when it comes to smoothing out our wrinkles and making ourselves look younger. Despite all the new treatments available, however, BOTOX® has remained one of the most popular cosmetic treatments since it was introduced. It’s hard to beat the ease, convenience and results that come with this treatment.
There’s no denying the great results you can get from a surgical procedure like a facelift. However, it’s still surgery. Not everyone wants or is even able to undergo surgery. If this describes your situation, BOTOX® can help you take years off your appearance with nothing more than a simple injection.
While it is very likely that you have already heard about BOTOX®, not everyone understands exactly how it works to get rid of wrinkles. This treatment is specially designed to smooth out dynamic wrinkles, which slowly develop over time as a result of repeatedly making facial expressions.
When you see your face in the mirror, you may see lines around the outer corners of your eyes, also known as crow’s feet. These have become etched in your skin after years of smiling and squinting. You may also have deep lines in between your eyebrows or on your forehead. These are the result of making inquisitive or grumpy expressions. These are just two examples of the dynamic wrinkles that can easily be treated with BOTOX®.
BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles responsible for forming dynamic wrinkles. After receiving your injections, you will still be able to make the same facial expressions you always did, but they just won’t result in wrinkles. As an added benefit, your results will be subtle and look natural. You won’t look like you had any work done; you’ll just look like a younger version of yourself.
Results typically last for up to four months, after which you can safely come back for touch-up treatments. Almost anyone in generally good health who would like to treat dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, eyebrow furrows and smile and frown lines is a good candidate for this treatment. During your consultation, we can help you find out for sure if BOTOX® is right for you.
