BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments that is performed in the United States and around the world. One of the reasons why it is so popular is because it works. It does just what it promises to do. Despite the fact that it is so popular, not everyone fully understands its purpose. We would like to tell you when BOTOX® is the best treatment option and when other treatment should be considered instead of it.
Erase Dynamic Wrinkles
It is common to have people refer to BOTOX® as an all-purpose treatment designed to get rid of every side effect that comes from the aging process. The truth of the matter is that it is only designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. One of the reasons why there may be this confusion is because not everyone knows that there are different forms of wrinkles and that there are a variety of factors at play that will cause a person to look old.
It is possible to experience both dynamic and static wrinkles as you get older. Static wrinkles are mostly the result of losing facial volume. In addition to making a person have wrinkles, the loss of facial volume also causes sagging skin, a hollow appearance in the cheeks and temples, and jowls. BOTOX® will not address any of these problems. These issues are usually better addressed using dermal fillers, skin tightening procedures, fat transfers, and even lift procedures.
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that come as a result of making facial expressions. Even children have dynamic wrinkles. However, because their skin is so youthful and healthy, the wrinkles disappear as soon as they stop making facial expressions. As a person gets older and their skin changes, dynamic wrinkles become etched in their skin. If you have forehead lines, crow’s feet, and deep lines at the corners of your mouth, all of these things can be treated with BOTOX®.
What BOTOX® Can Do for You
This treatment can be used to prevent dynamic wrinkles. In some cases, younger adults start getting injections in order to prevent their skin from creasing and folding and eventually forming permanent wrinkles. Many people begin to use this treatment when they are in their mid-30’s. When the injections are given into the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, the muscles are able to relax. This means that the skin has the opportunity to relax as well. It leads to a person having a more youthful and rested look.
What many people love about this treatment is that the results are subtle. You can definitely say goodbye to your dynamic wrinkles, but the results are not going to be as dramatic as what you would get with the facelift. You will likely have people tell you that you look like you are happier or have more energy.
