Lines around the lips are one of the most common signs of aging. They develop as the result of repeated muscle movements that leave the collagen layers of the skin deformed. This leads to a problem that is not only aesthetically aggravating, but one that is also difficult to treat. Treatments like dermal fillers tend to be quickly absorbed by the body as the result of the same muscle contractions. The good news is that there is a simple fix for lines around the lips: BOTOX®.
This injectable can effectively treat the underlying cause of lines and wrinkles stemming from muscle deformation. This allows these problems to be immediately minimized, which in turn can provide you with a substantial improvement in your appearance.
What is BOTOX®?
This is a unique treatment when it comes to minimizing lines and wrinkles on the face. It does not repair the damage that has already occurred, but it instead tries to limit the effects that the underlying causes of lines can have. It does so by affecting the communication between the brain and the muscles of the face. This limits how much the muscles can flex, which in turn limits the amount of active deformation that they can cause.
One of the great benefits of BOTOX® is the fact that only certain parts of the muscles are affected, which in turn means that you can still have wrinkles minimized without affecting your ability to express emotions or move your lips.
Why Would You Opt for BOTOX®?
The main reason to choose BOTOX® stems from the fact that it is unique in the way it treats fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. It is one of the few treatments able to stop the deformation of the skin for six months to two years. Once treated, you can receive other treatments to further minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the lips. Dermal fillers, such as the types that use hyaluronic acid, are ideal for providing a restoration that looks and feels natural.
Another reason to opt for BOTOX® concerns the way it can provide immediate results. Patients will generally see an immediate and lasting improvement to their lip lines when the product is used properly.
The last major reason to consider this treatment pertains to your other options. BOTOX® may be a more comfortable alternative to surgical treatment, which in turn may produce safer and more reliable results.
Is BOTOX® Right for You?
This injectable represents a versatile and effective way to treat a number of muscle-related lines, wrinkles and deformations in the skin. It can provide immediate and lasting results, which in turn can also prevent further lines around the lips from developing.
