Everyone wants to look their best. And while there are many things that we can do on our own to keep ourselves looking our best, there are other issues that we cannot simply solve by washing our face or applying a topical cream. One of the major problems that affects many people is dynamic wrinkles. The good news is BOTOX® can be used to minimize the appearance of these wrinkles without the need for surgery.
Dynamic wrinkles drastically alter the way that you look. They take your forehead, the areas around your mouth, and the areas around your eyes and make them look wrinkled and old. No matter what anyone tells you, there aren’t really any topical treatments that you can use to address dynamic wrinkles. This is because the source of dynamic wrinkles does not lie on your skin, but instead with the muscles underneath your skin. To be more accurate, dynamic wrinkles are created by the way your aging skin interacts with some muscles underneath your skin that cause facial movements.
As you get older, your skin gets thinner. Your body starts to produce less of the proteins and enzymes that your skin needs to be healthy. You produce less collagen, less hyaluronic acid, and less elastin. As a result, your skin gets thinner and thinner, and the movements of your facial muscles underneath your skin are telegraphed through your skin. Over time, the constant wrinkling and crinkling of your skin as a result of your facial muscles produces long-term damage to your skin. And this is why you get dynamic wrinkles.
So, the question becomes, how do you minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles or make them disappear altogether? Well, to accomplish this, you need to get at the heart of the problem, which is the muscle contractions underneath your skin. This is where BOTOX® comes into the picture.
BOTOX® is designed to temporarily relax the muscles underneath your skin that are used for facial expression. It’s important to emphasize that BOTOX® is not designed to affect the muscles that cause sensation. So, the treatment will not leave your face numb or frozen. You will still be able to make all of the normal facial expressions that you used to make. The only difference is that as a result of your BOTOX® treatment, that emotion will not result in dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX® is an exceptionally powerful tool that can drastically reverse the effects that dynamic wrinkles have on your appearance.
