Wrinkles that develop when the facial muscles contract are called dynamic lines. They are the result of years of skin pulling and pinching, and they become more and more apparent when the skin is affected by moisture loss or a decrease in collagen concentration. BOTOX® can help smooth away these fine lines and crow’s feet. If you live in or near Fort Worth, we encourage you to talk to us about BOTOX® and how it can help you regain a more youthful appearance.
This treatment is quite simple to perform, and the results are positively dramatic. Without the need for skin ablation or abrasive resurfacing, you can enjoy smoother skin, especially around the mouth, eyes, and on the forehead. The treatment is effective regardless of your skin tone or texture, and there’s no downtime after the treatment is completed.
The Secret Weapon
When you think of skin rejuvenation, things like chemicals or laser therapy probably come to mind. Many individuals have negative side effects from these treatments. On the other hand, BOTOX® doesn’t treat the skin directly. Instead, it targets the real culprit behind dynamic wrinkling: the upper-level facial muscles that control our expressions.
When you smile or frown, your marionette lines and crow’s feet become more visible. That’s what makes you look older and more tired every time you purse your lips or widen your eyes. We’ll show you just how to get rid of this problem without the need for surgical skin repositioning or harsh skin resurfacing treatments.
Relaxing the Muscles
We will consult with you and examine your skin closely as you perform a series of facial expressions. This allows us to determine just where to inject the BOTOX® fluid. Only the muscles that lie just beneath the facial skin do all of that pulling and pinching, and depending on the size and strength of these muscles, we adjust the dosage and choose appropriate injection sites.
The fluid is a purified protein serum that works by blocking chemical messaging information in the nerves. The nerve endings don’t get the message through to the muscles, and the muscles can no longer fully contract. This doesn’t mean that your face or forehead will go numb as the sensory nerves aren’t affected by the serum. On the other hand, the upper-level muscles will remain in a relaxed state. You can still smile and pout, but those unwelcome dynamic wrinkles are now hardly visible.
It takes only minutes to perform the procedure, and you’ll notice positive results within a few days. The serum is effective for a matter of months. After that, you can get repeat injections to maintain the optimal effect.
