Skin wrinkling comes in different types, but the most noticeable is the appearance of tiny, thin lines that form around the corners of the eyes and on the forehead. These wrinkles and crow’s feet become apparent whenever you smile or frown. They are called dynamic wrinkles because it’s the motion of the skin that causes them to appear. The most popular treatment for this age-related wrinkling is BOTOX®.
The effectiveness of BOTOX® has to do with the active ingredient in this injectable fluid. Instead of treating the skin directly, the injections act as a nerve signal blocker. The muscles that control the skin movements and allow you to make facial expressions are partially relaxed because the signals from the brain don’t get through. You can still smile and make other facial expressions, but you’ll do so with confidence knowing that the lines and thin wrinkles are no longer prominent.
What is BOTOX®?
This is a purified protein solution that basically prevents the nerve signals from getting to the muscle cells. This keeps the muscles in a relaxed state. This treatment should only be performed by a qualified professional. When we consult with our clients, we pay attention to the severity of the wrinkles that form as we watch the individual make a series of expressions. Frowning, smiling, widening of the eyes, and raising of the forehead skin lets us know the size and strength of the involved muscles. After watching the individual for a short time, we’ll know exactly where to inject the BOTOX® fluid and how much of it to use.
A Simple Procedure
The actual BOTOX® treatment is quick and simple. Visual improvement in skin texture becomes apparent in the days that follow. Even when smiling, the client notices that the lines and crow’s feet simply don’t become very prominent.
An Alternative to Other Treatments
BOTOX® is so popular because it doesn’t involve skin surgery and skin ablation. Many of our clients are wary of aggressive procedures because of the risk of side effects. BOTOX® doesn’t treat the skin directly, making it an appealing choice for those who don’t feel ready for anything too aggressive.
