If you’ve never received BOTOX® injections but have heard that it’s a treatment for wrinkles, you may be wondering if you’re a candidate for this type of procedure. The first thing you’ll be glad to know is that the product doesn’t treat the skin directly. This makes it suitable as a treatment regardless of skin tone and texture. The injections can minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face, those wrinkles that appear when muscles contract during the performing of facial expressions. Our Englewood, CO clients who come to us for BOTOX® injections are thrilled with the results. This simple cosmetic treatment for smile lines and crow’s feet is extremely effective, and it doesn’t involve skin resurfacing, skin ablation, or the use of harsh acids.
The Ideal Candidate
If your concern is the appearance of tiny wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and on the forehead when you smile, frown, or pout, you may indeed be a suitable candidate for BOTOX® treatments. So long as the wrinkles aren’t too large and you aren’t suffering from any sort of severe skin condition, this treatment will likely yield the results you expect.
How It Works
BOTOX® basically prevents the muscles from effectively receiving nerve signals from the brain. Because the nerves themselves aren’t affected, the sense of touch isn’t compromised. When we consult with the client in Englewood, CO, we pay particular attention to the facial muscles. Their location and size determine the amount of fluid we will use.
Advantages of BOTOX® Treatments
The biggest advantage of BOTOX® is that nearly everyone is a suitable candidate. It doesn’t matter the thickness of the skin or its overall texture or tone. Unlike bleaching treatments and abrasive resurfacing procedures, it cannot negatively alter the overall skin texture.
The affected muscles become trained to stay relaxed, so subsequent treatments at our office in Englewood, CO don’t require as large of a dose as the original. The effect lasts for multiple months before repeat injections are necessary.
