BOTOX® is an unbelievably powerful tool that has helped countless individuals treat dynamic wrinkles. It does not matter if the wrinkles are around their forehead, around their eyes or around their mouth. All of these dynamic wrinkles can be turned into a thing of the past by using this treatment. The injections make you look and feel more youthful and give your appearance the boost you need.
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
When people think about wrinkles, they might mistakenly believe that all wrinkles are created equal. The truth is that there are different types of wrinkles that can affect your face. Static wrinkles are the wrinkles that are caused by skin laxity as well as a loss of facial volume. These are the wrinkles that are on your face regardless of the facial expression that you are making.
Then, there are dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear when you make facial expressions, like when you smile and frown. These are the wrinkles that form on the sides of your eyes, creating crow’s feet. These are the laugh lines that appear around your mouth or the wrinkles appear on your forehead when you frown.
How Does BOTOX® Address Dynamic Wrinkles?
BOTOX® addresses dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing certain muscles on your face. So, the muscles on your face that create the dynamic wrinkles no longer move when you make facial expressions. As a result, this muscle movement is not telegraphed through your skin. Your skin is smoother, and you have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
It’s important to point out that although BOTOX® does temporarily relax the treated facial muscles, this does not mean that you are not able to make facial expressions. To the contrary, you are able to make the same facial expressions that you did before, the only difference is that the contractions of your muscles are not so forceful that they affect the appearance of your skin.
Most people who get BOTOX® treatments are able to have the treatments done without anyone really knowing that they have had the work done. When people look at someone who has had BOTOX® treatments, they usually say that the individual looks rested, not worked on. And really, this is what you want.
