While wrinkles can be the result of gravity and the sun, many of the ones that bother us the most are caused by repetitive facial movements. These are known as dynamic wrinkles and the group includes things such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Rather than just accepting their appearance as an inevitable part of aging, more and more people are turning to BOTOX®. This revolutionary treatment can help relax your face, allowing the dynamic wrinkles to fade.
Why Do We Get Dynamic Wrinkles?
Lines show up on our faces when we make expressions throughout our lives. The difference is that in our youth, we have enough collagen for these lines to disappear quickly. As collagen production slows, these lines and wrinkles tend to stick around a bit longer. Eventually, dynamic wrinkles can become static, meaning they never fade.
How BOTOX® Can Help
BOTOX® is designed to paralyze the muscles responsible for the dynamic wrinkles temporarily. Injections are made in a precise and strategic manner. This ensures that the surrounding area is not impacted and you do not end up looking frozen.
Once you have your botox injections, it will take a few days for muscle movements to stop. On average, people see their improvements in as little as one week after the BOTOX® appointment. There is no downtime after injections, meaning you can immediately go back to your normal routine.
How long your results with BOTOX® will last depends on how your body responds to it. Once BOTOX® begins to wear off, you will need to decide if you would like to receive follow-up treatments. If not, muscle movement will return to normal and the dynamic wrinkles will once again appear.
Who is BOTOX® Used to Treat?
Almost anyone can benefit from this revolutionary and non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. When exactly dynamic wrinkles will appear for you can depend on many factors such as your lifestyle and your genetics. If you are in your 30s or 40s and bothered by their appearance, there is no reason to put off BOTOX® treatments. Men can benefit from this treatment just as much as women.
