It is very likely that you have heard about BOTOX®. It is so popular nowadays that it has even become a household word. However, not everyone understands how it works. We invite you to learn how you can erase unwanted lines and wrinkles with BOTOX®.
While the term BOTOX® is often talked about, not everyone has an accurate idea of what it really is. The treatment is often confused with dermal fillers and other anti-aging treatments. But BOTOX® is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of muscle contractions that start to crease the skin and telegraph through skin that is getting older and thinner. If you are getting older and you look in the mirror, it is very likely that you will see dynamic wrinkles at the outer corners of your eyes, on your forehead, and in between your eyebrows.
When BOTOX® is gently injected into certain facial muscles, it will help those muscles to relax. When the muscles are able to relax, the skin on top of them is able to relax as well. This is why you are able to get a more refreshed and youthful appearance after the injections.
Some people worry that they will not be able to make normal facial expressions after using this treatment. You do not have to worry about that. You are still going to be able to smile, frown, and make all other facial expressions in a natural way. You will not have a frozen expression on your face. Your muscles will just be relaxed, which will make you look more rested and happy.
In order to qualify for BOTOX® injections, a person must be at least 18 years old. Most individuals who are at this age do not need these injections for dynamic wrinkles. However, younger individuals in their twenties can benefit from the treatment to help prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.
