Even though BOTOX® has been on the market for years now, not everyone is completely familiar with how the product works or what it can do for them. BOTOX® is so popular that it has become a common household word, but not everyone realizes how much they can benefit from using this product.
Every one of us is going to get wrinkles as we get older. The amount of wrinkles we have and where they are placed on our face and body is going to vary. It is based on a lot of different factors, including our health, the environment we grew up in, the amount of time we have spent in the sun, and our genetics. However, there are two things that are true. We all have dynamic wrinkles now, and they will get deeper and deeper as we get older. And we all will get static wrinkles as we get older as a result of the loss of facial volume and other factors.
BOTOX® has been designed to treat dynamic wrinkles by causing facial muscles to relax. This is something that is important as we get older. Even though we all have dynamic wrinkles no matter how old we are, the creases they make in our skin are going to get deeper and deeper the more times we make the facial expression.
Just think of how a young person looks when they smile. They have creases around their eyes and mouth. However, since their skin is young and their muscles stop contracting as soon as they are done smiling, their skin becomes smooth again. However, as we get older, our muscles may stay contracted, and the creases that are the result of the contraction of the muscles stay in place and get deeper. BOTOX® is used to help people say goodbye to those facial wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles and allows the skin on top of them to stay smooth.
One of the things that people love about using BOTOX® is that their appearance is refreshed and rejuvenated, but it is not an invasive procedure that requires a lot of downtime and recovery. You can go back to all of your normal activities as soon as the treatment is over. You can return to our office multiple times a year to keep your facial wrinkles at bay.
