Is BOTOX the Right Treatment for Your Wrinkles?

Wrinkles show up on everyone’s face when the squint, smile, and laugh. As we get older, these wrinkles tend to stick around even when we have stopped making the facial expression. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles and they show up as we age and stop producing as much collagen. BOTOX® is the ideal treatment for these wrinkles. The injections can help the face relax to the point that wrinkles fade, leaving behind a younger-looking you!


How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® treatments target the muscles that are responsible for the movements causing the dynamic wrinkles. It is injected very precisely in the desired area to relax those muscles without affecting the surrounding area. It takes days for the active ingredient in the injection to kick in and stop muscle movement. After this, it takes approximately 7 days to achieve your peak results.

Injections are done in just minutes in the comfort of our office. The improvements will last for multiple months. After those months, you will need to decide if you would like to receive follow-up treatments. If not, the muscle movement will return to normal and the dynamic wrinkles will gradually reappear. Many people who have had the treatment done multiple times report that the wrinkles come back less dramatically. This is due to their faces having been trained to relax.


What Are the Benefits of BOTOX®?

This treatment is so popular that it has become a household name. There are many reasons that people continue to turn to it to treat dynamic wrinkles. Some of the biggest ones include:


Who Is a Good Candidate?

This is a treatment that many people can benefit from. Due to the way BOTOX® works, you will not want to use it if you are looking to treat wrinkles caused by gravity or damage caused by the sun. It is ideal for expression lines and dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements.

Younger people are having this treatment done in growing numbers. Dynamic wrinkles can begin to be an issue in your 40s or even 30s. Both men and women can benefit from tackling this problem head-on. Anyone aged 18 and up can benefit from this treatment.
