As we age, our skin becomes a bit more brittle. Over the years, constant pinching of the skin as facial expressions are performed results in thin lines and creases. These dynamic wrinkles most commonly appear near the mouth and eyes. They’re not terribly deep, and they generally aren’t visible until we narrow our eyes, smile, or frown. BOTOX® injections in Fort Worth are a simple yet effective treatment for this type of age-related wrinkling.
We’re located in the Fort Worth area, so you’re not far from us. We invite you to give us a call and schedule a consultation to learn more about BOTOX® injections and how they help smooth away those annoying smile lines and crow’s feet. It’s a much simpler solution than surgery, dermabrasion, or chemical peels.
How These Wrinkles Come About
When you were much younger, your skin contained adequate moisture and proteins. These levels decreased over time, so it became easier for your skin to remain pinched when your facial muscles contracted. After thousands of smiles, frowns, and pouts, tiny crease lines became more and more prominent. These are called dynamic wrinkles because they were created via motion energy. Much like stretch marks, they eventually become quite visible every time your upper-level facial muscles contract fully.
BOTOX® Injections Can Help
This purified protein serum acts as a nerve signal blocker. The muscles get their instructions from the brain, but because of the blocking of signals, the nerve endings cannot transmit the signals to the muscle tissue. The muscles remain in a more or less relaxed state. The lower-level muscles aren’t affected because the serum isn’t injected that deeply. You can still smile and frown, but the near-surface muscles don’t pull or pinch the skin once they’re in a controlled relaxed state. The effect becomes noticeable after about two or three days following injection treatment. The age-related crow’s feet and marionette lines no longer appear.
BOTOX® injections should only be performed by professional dermatologists. We want to consult with you so that we can examine your facial features to see where these annoying smile lines and crow’s feet are appearing. We’ll fashion a customized BOTOX® injections treatment based on our observations. We’ll know just how much of the fluid to inject and which muscles need to be relaxed. The results last for a few months, after which you’ll need to have the procedure repeated. The muscles get used to being in a relaxed state, so each subsequent treatment uses less of the BOTOX® fluid.
