Consumers currently have access to a broad range of non-surgical cosmetic solutions for fighting the common signs of aging. This is especially true for those who struggle with dynamic wrinkles. These are superficial lines resulting from the buildup of tension in the expressive facial muscles. They’re often found around the mouth, at the eyes and across the brow. BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that’s been FDA-approved for the temporary treatment of dynamic wrinkles. These simple injections can be amazingly effective. This trusted solution instantly blocks nerve signals to the expressive muscles so that tension is released, and fine lines and wrinkles at the surface of the skin are smoothed away.
Why Choose BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for addressing fine lines and wrinkles across the visage. This treatment is entirely non-surgical and does not require any special aftercare or recovery time. Best of all, it provides subtle, natural-looking results. This makes it perfect for people who are unwilling to commit to the high-risk and dramatic changes that invasive procedures often entail.
A Temporary Anti-Aging Solution
BOTOX® is capable of minimizing or eliminating dynamic wrinkles on a temporary basis. This solution works by blocking the nerve signals that control the expressive muscles. Over time, the effects will gradually wear off and full nerve and muscle functioning will be restored. As such, you can expect the results of a BOTOX® treatment to last approximately four to six months. You can simply have your injections repeated at our office multiple times per year once the results start to fade.
Given that only a very nominal amount of BOTOX® will be injected into the targeted areas during your treatment, you’ll retain sufficient muscle functionality for making a broad range of facial expressions. This means that you’ll still be able to communicate a variety of emotions with your face, even as you enjoy a much more youthful appearance overall.
Pairs Well with Other Cosmetic Procedures
You may find that the full range of your cosmetic concerns cannot be addressed by a single, standalone solution. For instance, some people struggle with both dynamic and static wrinkles. While dynamic wrinkles are most obvious when the face is in a state of motion, static wrinkles remain in place even when the expressive muscles are completely relaxed. Static wrinkles are caused by the gradual loss in facial volume that occurs as people grow older. These wrinkles can be effectively filled in using a high-quality dermal filler. If you have both dynamic and static wrinkles, our provider may recommend using BOTOX® and dermal filler technologies together to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Get Natural-Looking Results
With facelift procedures, people often have to wait weeks or even months before they’re able to assess the results of their treatments. And often times, the results just don’t look natural. Your BOTOX® injections will give you natural-looking results. After your treatment, you can look forward to additional improvements as the purified protein solution takes full effect and more tension in the underlying facial muscles is released.
