The aging process is really punishing when it comes to your skin. Lines and wrinkles can leave you looking older than you feel. Dynamic wrinkles can be effectively treated using BOTOX® injections. The treatment also works for migraine headaches and hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are those that develop when you use facial muscles to form facial expressions. For example, when you frown your lines between your eyebrows will become more prominent. As a young person, your skin has more elasticity and will spring back to its original shape when forming these type of facial expressions. Getting older leads to dynamic wrinkles that tend to linger on your skin and give away your age.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable liquid containing a protein solution that is carefully purified in a laboratory. After injection, the product will temporarily relax facial muscles causing dynamic wrinkles.
The treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for minimizing dynamic wrinkles found on the forehead, between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and lines on the neck. It is not for treatment around the mouth area because this could lead to problems with speaking and eating normally.
BOTOX® has a proven track record of safety that it has enjoyed over several decades. It is created in a laboratory by a trusted company that manufactures it only under the most strict and controlled conditions.
What Is a BOTOX® Treatment Like?
If you have already undergone a consultation and been approved for treatment, things should go fairly fast. You will be asked to lie on a table, and the treatment area will be cleansed. We will mark injection sites with a marker. Then we inject the product into facial muscles using very fine needles.
When Will I Notice Results?
Most patients notice a reduction in dynamic wrinkles within several days of their treatment. However, some patients may need to return for additional injections if the initial set of injections did not result in a complete response. This is not uncommon, and we will monitor your progress as your results unfold.
Usually in about three months, patients begin to notice a slight return of facial muscle movement in the treatment zone. You may wish to have additional injections to maintain your results at this time. The treatment is FDA-approved to last up to four months total.
