This is a powerful tool that goes hand-in-hand with our other cosmetic treatments. BOTOX® can help improve the appearance of your skin, minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, and make you happy once again with the face that you have.
Many of our clients in Sarasota have heard about BOTOX®, but not all of them are familiar with what it actually does. So, here’s a simple rundown of how it works. BOTOX® is designed to address dynamic wrinkles. While the name sounds ominous, dynamic wrinkles are simply the wrinkles that appear on your face when you make facial movements. Look at yourself in the mirror and then smile. Do you see the wrinkles that are developing along the sides of your eyes? These are referred to as crow’s feet.
When you relax your face, it’s likely that the dynamic wrinkle disappeared, or at least minimized. So, what is causing you to have dynamic wrinkles? It is the contraction of the muscles underneath your skin. When your muscles contract, they cause your skin to wrinkle or to bunch up. This problem becomes more pronounced as we get older because as we get older, our skin gets thinner. Thinner skin more easily transmits the movement of facial muscles.
Additionally, with time and over the years, dynamic wrinkles begin to etch into our skin. It’s as if you were folding a piece of paper back and forth a couple of times. Eventually, that fold becomes creased into the paper. And that’s what happens with our skin and dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® helps by stopping your muscles from contracting as much.
With BOTOX® injections, when you smile and make other facial expressions, the muscles around your eyes and in other areas will not contract as hard as they do right now. As a result, dynamic wrinkles will not appear. Since the muscles are able to relax, the skin that sits on top of them is also able to relax. The result is your dynamic wrinkles go away.
BOTOX® treatments are non-surgical. They are administered via skillful injection. In the days after the procedure, you will start to notice the results. You won’t believe what a difference this treatment has made in your appearance.
