BOTOX® is popular because it smoothes away dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and smile lines without actually treating the skin. There’s no worry about bleaching, chemical reactions that cause skin damage, or regional discolorations such as those sometimes experienced after abrasive resurfacing has been performed. We have a lot of experience with this brand of product, and we will echo the words of our current patients who say they are 100% satisfied with their results.
How Does It Work?
If this treatment doesn’t involve the skin itself, then how can it get rid of frown lines and crow’s feet? Well, these dynamic wrinkles form slowly over time, the result of thousands of muscle contractions that allow us to chew our food, talk, and widen our eyes. Eventually, age-related factors cause the skin to weaken, and the muscle contractions now put etched lines on the skin surface because of the tension and compression in the skin layers.
That’s why these wrinkles don’t look like much when the muscles are relaxed but become quite prominent when you smile, narrow your eyes, or purse your lips. The marionette lines and crow’s feet suddenly appear and make you look much older than you really are.
When BOTOX® fluid is injected into the upper-level muscles that cause these fine lines to appear, the nerve signals that would otherwise cause contraction of the muscle tissue don’t get through. The muscles stay in a pretty much relaxed state, and the skin in turn stays smooth.
Ready in 15 Minutes!
That’s all the time it takes us to observe the facial muscles and their strength, watch as you perform a few silly expressions, and inject the fluid. This purified protein serum settles into the muscle tissue and slowly delays nerve signal transmission. You’ll still be able to feel your face with your fingers because the sensory nerves aren’t affected by the serum. It’s just the jerky motions such as raising the eyebrows or quickly closing one side of the mouth that changes a bit.
This skin-smoothing effect lasts for months. After the serum is flushed from the body, you simply come in for a repeat treatment. If you’ve not seriously considered something aggressive such as a facelift or a deep chemical peel because you feel you aren’t ready for this sort of invasive treatment, BOTOX® injections are likely the perfect alternative you’ve been seeking.
