The fine lines and wrinkles that appear around our eyes, mouth, and on the forehead when we smile or frown are called dynamic wrinkles. They become more and more apparent as we age. The skin holds less moisture than it did when we were younger, and it also contains less collagen and other proteins. Thousands of skin pinches and pulls from pouting, widening our eyes, and frowning eventually leads to wrinkle lines that make us look quite old and unhealthy. BOTOX® is the secret wrinkle-reduction weapon that we suggest to our Evansville clients to help smooth the facial skin.
BOTOX® isn’t really a skin treatment per se. Instead of rejuvenating the skin tissues, it relaxes muscles in the face and on the forehead. This virtually eliminates the smile lines and fine wrinkles because the skin isn’t pulled or pinched as much as it was prior to treatment. You can enjoy a more youthful countenance without the complications associated with more aggressive treatments. BOTOX® is a suitable treatment regardless of your skin texture or tone.
Examining Your Skin
We will want to consult with you so that we can observe first-hand your facial features. We want to look closely at the size and strength of your facial muscles and also determine the severity of wrinkling that occurs when you perform certain expressions. Based on our observations, we will design a simple treatment that can be performed in a matter of minutes.
How It Works
BOTOX® is a purified protein serum approved by the Food and Drug Administration for direct injection into the muscles that lie just beneath the facial and forehead skin. These muscles receive instructions from the brain and contract so that the skin pulls or pinches.
The serum blocks these nerve signals to a significant degree. The muscles stay in a more or less relaxed state. The lower-level muscles, unaffected by the serum, contract a little, so you’ll still be able to smile at your friends or kiss your loved ones. However, the dynamic wrinkles are now far less visible. Sensory nerves in and beneath the skin, the nerves that allow you to feel your face, aren’t affected by the serum.
It takes a couple of days for you to notice the effect. BOTOX® is effective for a few months, after which time you can get a second series of injections. Many of our clients choose to get the treatment two or three times per year, and they notice that the relaxation effect and diminishing of wrinkles becomes more pronounced over time. This is because the muscles are getting used to being in a relaxed state.
