Some facial wrinkles are entirely unresponsive to non-invasive, topical anti-aging treatments, whether these come in the form of special lotions, night creams or facial masks. In fact, even more aggressive efforts, such as micro-needling, chemical peels and dermabrasion, do not have any significant minimizing effects. These wrinkles are often dynamic wrinkles, and they have far less to do with the texture and health of the skin than they do with the condition of the underlying muscles. The good news is that BOTOX® can provide a fast, safe and hassle-free solution with absolutely no need for tissue removal or cutting, and no recovery time.
Why Choose BOTOX® for Wrinkle Reduction?
Currently one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments on the market, BOTOX® is the ideal solution for men and women who want to refresh their appearances without having to undergo surgery. The injections take just a few minutes to complete and there are no special requirements for aftercare.
How It Works
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved purified protein that can instantly release dynamic wrinkles right at their source. Dynamic wrinkles are the result of built-up tension in the expressive muscles. These are the muscles that are used for creating facial expressions. BOTOX® can effectively block the nerve signals that control these muscles, thereby causing them to relax. Once the expressive muscles have been temporarily relaxed, the surface skin will smooth out and take on a far more youthful appearance overall.
The results of BOTOX® treatments for dynamic wrinkles can last for three to six months. As nerve signals are gradually restored to the expressive muscles, repeat treatments may be needed. The good news is that patients can safely undergo several treatments each year.
While the results of these injections do not always manifest right away, patients can look forward to a considerable decrease in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes and at the brow within the first two to seven days after their procedures.
How to Know If BOTOX® Is Right for You
Ideal candidates are at least 18 years old and looking for a safe and non-invasive way to eliminate dynamic wrinkles and fine lines across the visage. Volume loss that causes significant facial creasing and noticeable sagging may not be correctable with this treatment.
