Are you sick and tired of seeing wrinkles on your face? Do the wrinkles get worse when you make certain facial expressions? If so, you could be a good candidate for BOTOX®. This is a purified protein solution that can minimize or completely reduce the appearance of certain types of facial wrinkles.
Everybody has heard about BOTOX®, but a lot of people aren’t quite sure what it is. This is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes an injectable liquid to temporarily relax muscles in the treated area. BOTOX® is specifically designed to address dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that appear on your face as a result of the facial movements you make. These types of wrinkles are different from static wrinkles.
With just a simple injection treatment, BOTOX® prevents the muscles in your face from contracting with the same severity that they did prior to treatment. As a result, your facial muscles do not telegraph their movement into your skin. The dynamic wrinkles that you see on your forehead, around your eyes and around your mouth all start to disappear.
Some people shy away from getting BOTOX® treatments because they feel that in addition to saying goodbye to their wrinkles, they are also going to be saying goodbye to their ability to make facial expressions. Some people mistakenly believe that BOTOX® injections mean that they’re going to have a permanently frozen face or they are going to have that permanently surprised expression that some movie stars and television stars have after having cosmetic procedures done.
The truth is that when BOTOX® is administered in the appropriate way, these side effects don’t happen. In fact, most of the time when you see a person with that startled look or that frozen face, it’s not because of this treatment, but instead because they had a surgical procedure like a forehead lift that went bad.
BOTOX® is a powerful tool that has allowed millions of people to say goodbye to their facial wrinkles. While BOTOX® is not a permanent fix, it has proven to be an effective way to temporarily minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. And the treatments can be safely repeated at our office multiple times per year for ongoing benefits.
