The most prominent sign of early skin aging is dynamic wrinkling. These wrinkles are the result of countless skin pinches and pulls due to muscle contraction. Sharp creases eventually form, and these appear as smile lines and crow’s feet. Adults experiencing these wrinkles are quite aware that it negatively influences the overall facial appearance. The tired and worn-out look can really make one appear much older, but dynamic wrinkles can be effectively treated with Botox® injections.
This treatment doesn’t address skin health directly. Instead, the result is a relaxing of the skin. Facial expressions such as smiling and pouting are still performed as usual, but targeted muscle tissue that lies just beneath the skin no longer contracts fully.
Suitable Candidates for Botox® Treatment
The ideal candidate will be a mature adult who isn’t experiencing any severe health problems and who hasn’t been diagnosed with a serious skin condition. Individuals with fine wrinkles that are not permanently set and which occur near the corners of the mouth, to the right and left of the eyes, on top of the nose bridge, and on the forehead are generally good candidates for Botox® injections.
How Botox® Works
When this purified protein solution is injected into the upper-level muscles that control skin movement on the face, the nerve signals sent by the brain get blocked. The nerve endings cannot transmit signals that cause the muscle to contract fully. This means that the muscle remains in a pretty much relaxed state.
We consult with the client before performing the treatment. We need to see which muscles are causing the problem by the observing of the client making smiling, frowning, and eye-widening expressions. We then choose the appropriate dosage and load the fluid into an ampule fitted with a thin needle.
The injection procedure takes only about 10 minutes to complete. After about three days, the client will begin to notice less and less apparent marionette lines and crow’s feet. The nerve-signals are blocked effectively for about four months. After that period, the procedure can be repeated.
The sensory nerves, the ones that allow a person to sense feeling in the facial skin, aren’t affected by the solution. There’s no worrying about the face suddenly going numb. Many individuals experience less wrinkling even when the toxin has been completely flushed from the body. This is because the muscles are getting used to being in a relaxed state.
