If facial lines and wrinkles are getting you down, you have a number of treatment options available. Many adults are not yet ready for an aggressive rejuvenation procedure, however. BOTOX® is the preferred treatment for those who are ready to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and smile lines but seek an alternative to surgery. BOTOX® effectively smooths the skin on the face without treating the skin directly. This is accomplished by affecting the nerve action that controls the facial muscles. It won’t make the face numb, and facial expressions are still easy to perform, but the dynamic wrinkling is diminished.
Consulting with Our Specialist
We always encourage our clients to come in for a consultation before deciding on any sort of procedure. We want to examine the face and see how wrinkling develops when certain facial expressions are made. If the problem is small, we will likely suggest BOTOX® as the treatment method.
The nerve signals are what control the contractions of the muscles. The upper-level facial muscles are what pull the skin in one direction or another, allowing us to perform expressions. Unfortunately, this is also what causes dynamic wrinkles to appear. When we consult with the client, we look to see if the lines and wrinkles are being caused by compression of the facial skin.
A Simple Injection Procedure
The procedure itself is simple. During the treatment session, our provider skillfully injects the BOTOX® solution into the preselected area. After treatment, the client can resume most all normal activities without delay. Once the nerves that control the upper-level facial muscles are affected, the client will notice a change in how the facial skin looks when smiling or frowning occurs. The skin now remains smoother regardless of how wide the smile is or how deep the frown. The smile lines and small wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth are no longer visible.
BOTOX® injections can be repeated at regular intervals. There are no known side effects when the treatment is properly administered by a qualified professional. One bonus of BOTOX® injections is that the facial muscles become trained to stay relaxed. This means less of the fluid is required during subsequent treatments.
