Surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures are on the rise. They have been able to help individuals fix facial imperfections and feel great about their appearance. One of the most popular procedures is using BOTOX® Cosmetic injectables. BOTOX® has proven time and again that it is one of the best options for minimizing lines and wrinkles.
How BOTOX® Treats Lines and Wrinkles
As a person ages, their skin changes. One of the most common signs of aging is experiencing lines and wrinkles around the eyes, at the corners of the mouth, and between the brows. Dynamic wrinkles are formed when the muscles under the skin contract. This causes the skin on top of the muscles to bunch together and form deep lines.
These dynamic wrinkles are most commonly seen when a person changes the expression on their face. For example, when they smile, laugh, or feel angry, lines appear on their face. The most common dynamic wrinkles include crow's feet, upper lip lines, frown lines, and forehead creases. Dynamic wrinkles can also form on the neck.
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected near the areas where dynamic wrinkles form, the facial muscles will begin to loosen. The relaxing of the muscles allows the lines and wrinkles that are caused by the muscle contractions to disappear.
It should be noted that static wrinkles cannot be treated with BOTOX®. Static wrinkles occur when the hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin begins to break down.
Determining the Best Candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic
Most individuals can qualify for the BOTOX® procedure.
Another important qualification is for a person to have realistic expectations concerning what the treatment can do for them. We have been able to help many individuals treat fine lines and wrinkles.
We will evaluate your medical history to be sure that you do not have any medical conditions that would interfere with your BOTOX® treatment. If you have diseases that affect your nerves or muscles, have a neurological disorder, or are allergic to any of the ingredients found in BOTOX®, a different treatment may be recommended. Also, treatments are not recommended for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or plan to become pregnant.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been approved by the FDA. It is a safe way for you to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and enjoy a more youthful appearance. Check out our Botox Guide to learn more.
