No matter what you do to protect your skin, there may come a point in your life when preventing age-related blemishes feels like an impossible task. As we grow older, many of us will develop fine lines near our eyes known as crow’s feet. Even though these imperfections are completely natural, they might prematurely age your face. With BOTOX® injections, our team in Nashville can quickly and safely soften these wrinkles near your eyes.
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
Wrinkles take place for many different reasons, including damage from UV rays, chemical beauty products, and cigarette smoke. They can also develop when the facial muscles near your eyes and forehead become permanently contracted. These dynamic wrinkles are very difficult to get rid of without professional assistance, and they aren’t always responsive to traditional dermal fillers. BOTOX® injections treat the root of the problem by relaxing the muscles that control your facial expressions.
The Origins of BOTOX®
This injectable has been used by doctors for decades to treat dozens of different health issues. For many years, doctors injected it into certain areas to treat involuntary twitching of the eyes and lips. Over time, those same doctors noticed that the wrinkles closest to the injections would fade away as well. BOTOX® works by blocking the nerve impulses that keep muscles contracted. Within just days of the injections, the wrinkles will fade away as the muscles become relaxed.
Your BOTOX® Appointment
Most appointments at our office in Nashville can be completed in just minutes. During the treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into the preselected facial muscles. In the days following your appointment, you’ll see as the crow’s feet fade from view.
