WHAT ARE DYNAMIC WRINKLES?
Wrinkles have many causes including sun damage, smoking, and aging. Dynamic wrinkles, in particular, result from contracting facial muscles when smiling, squinting, frowning, etc. The most noticeable dynamic wrinkles are crow's feet, worry lines, frown lines, forehead lines, lipstick lines, and puckering of the chin.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Botox is injected into the muscles that are responsible for the specific facial expressions that produce dynamic wrinkles. Botox causes muscular relaxation by blocking nerve impulses. When the muscles relax, the overlying skin no longer folds and wrinkles fade away. After treatment, the targeted areas remain smooth and the untreated facial muscles are left unaffected. Results can be seen in three to ten days and will last three to six months. When lines reappear, a repeat treatment is needed to maintain results.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER BOTOX?
Botox does not affect sensation; the area will not feel numb. Most patients do not notice the loss of movement in the treated muscles. Instead, most claim they feel more relaxed and that the treatment relieves muscle-tension headaches. In rare instances (< 5% of all cases), patients have experienced a “heaviness” of the forehead, eyebrows, or eyelids.
ACHIEVING THE BEST RESULTS
With Botox treatments, patients can reduce dynamic wrinkles in a few painless seconds. The procedure requires no downtime and has no temporary side effects such as wounds or blisters.
It is a safe method for reducing the signs of an aging face.
Wrinkles are just one of many indicators of sun damage and aging. Brown spots and discoloration, redness and spider veins, uneven skin texture, and skin growths are other cosmetically undesirable qualities of the skin. Through a combination of Botox, injectable fillers, and laser technology, these can be addressed and youthful skin restored.
