Dynamic wrinkles are small creases and fine lines that form when the skin is stretched or relaxed. When certain facial muscles aren’t contracted, these lines are barely visible, but when certain facial expressions are made, the muscle contractions pull the skin in one direction or another. Because such factors as thinning skin, less skin support from the subcutaneous tissues, and less moisture in the skin can lead to the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, mature adults are the ones who usually experience this problem. It can negatively affect appearance, but the problem can usually be corrected without surgery or skin resurfacing. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a preferred treatment for those who have dynamic wrinkles on the face or forehead.
Smoother Skin Without Surgery
Many people simply aren’t ready to undergo skin ablation such as skin repositioning or a full facelift. Others are wary of other types of treatments because they can actually discolor the facial skin. Skin abrasion techniques generally work well, but tend to treat discolorations rather than wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic can do the job without the need for surgery or other invasive methods.
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a purified protein solution. When skillfully injected into certain facial muscles, the nerves no longer send signals to the muscles, and the muscles can no long fully contract. Basically, the muscles relax.
A Simple, Outpatient Procedure
After consulting with the client, we can perform BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. During the treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into preselected areas. There is virtually no recovery after the treatment session. As such, it is extremely convenient.
When the full results become visible in the following days, the client can still make normal facial expressions, but the muscles don’t contract much, so the dynamic wrinkles become hardly noticeable. The procedure is most effective for smoothing the skin on the sides of the eyes, in between the eyes, and on the forehead.
Advantages of BOTOX® Cosmetic
Unlike skin abrasion, BOTOX® Cosmetic doesn’t treat the skin directly. This means the client need not worry about unnecessary side effects. Of course, since no surgery is involved, there is no recovery time. Normal activities can be resumed immediately.
