You don’t have to go under the knife to get rid of facial wrinkles. In fact, some of the earliest and most common signs of aging are hardly responsive to these measures. These are called dynamic wrinkles, and they’re not the result of diminished collagen production, facial volume loss or superficial damages at the topmost layers of the skin. Dynamic wrinkles are instead caused by tension that gradually accumulates in the expressive muscles. Frown lines and crow’s feet are common examples of dynamic wrinkles. They can also develop around the mouth as vertical perioral lines. BOTOX® is a powerful solution that’s been approved by the FDA for the non-surgical reduction of dynamic wrinkles across the visage.
The Benefits of Non-Surgical Treatments Like BOTOX®
There are countless benefits that patients can gain by choosing non-surgical treatments for reaching their cosmetic goals. Foremost among these is the ability to have their aesthetic concerns addressed within a very nominal amount of time and with absolutely no downtime.
During a BOTOX® treatment, you’ll receive a brief series of injections across the targeted areas. The process causes very little, if any, discomfort and can be completed in a matter of minutes.
Using BOTOX® for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles can be especially beneficial for those who are hesitant to commit to procedures with permanent results. Invasive surgeries such as mini facelift and facelift procedures involve incisions, the removal and alteration of facial tissues and changes that last for many years. With BOTOX®, if you don’t like your new look, you’ll only need to wait about four months for your treatment results to fade. If you do like it, you can safely come back for touch-up treatments as needed.
How BOTOX® Relaxes Dynamic Wrinkles Without the Need for Tissue Removal or Cutting
Much like their name implies, dynamic wrinkles are associated with movement. They’re easiest to see whenever a person is frowning, smiling or making other facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles are the direct result of ongoing use of the expressive muscles and the resulting built-up tension.
When BOTOX® is injected into areas with dynamic wrinkles, the powerful solution blocks nerve signals and causes the muscles to relax. This releases both underlying tension and visible wrinkles at the surface of the skin. As time passes, the effects will invariably wear off. With repeat treatments, however, you will likely need less and less of the solution to get the same results.
Is BOTOX® the Right Cosmetic Solution for You?
BOTOX® injections are fast, easy and convenient. They’re ideal for people who want to look significantly younger without having to undergo high-risk and invasive surgeries. The injections typically take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete, and they come with the added benefit of absolutely no downtime.
