Many individuals would like to do something about the wrinkles they see on their face, but they do not want to use a surgical procedure. They may not have the time or energy for a surgical procedure. Surgical procedures can require a person to take a lot of time to recover after the procedure is finished.
If you would like to treat the wrinkles on your face but you are not yet ready for a surgical procedure, BOTOX® may be right for you. This is a fantastic treatment that has been used for many years. It is approved by the FDA for use on dynamic wrinkles.
One thing that a person needs in order to qualify for BOTOX® treatment is to actually have the type of wrinkles that BOTOX® treats. This may be a new idea for some people. Many people have the idea that all wrinkles are exactly the same. However, that is not true. There are two main different types of wrinkles that a person can experience as they get older. These are dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. BOTOX® treats dynamic wrinkles.
You may be wondering how you can tell what kind of wrinkles you have on your face. There’s a very easy test you can do. Look in the mirror. When you are making absolutely no expression, do you see wrinkles? If so, these are most likely static wrinkles. Now smile, frown or make some other kind of expression. If you see wrinkles appear on your face or you see lines etched in your face that are there because of making facial expressions, these are dynamic wrinkles. These are the kind of wrinkles that you can treat using BOTOX®.
To put it simply, BOTOX® is designed to relax your facial muscles. This means that the skin on top of the muscles on your face will stay smooth. This is going to help you look younger and more rested.
The treatment for administering BOTOX® is very simple. After your initial consultation when we determine if this product is right for you, we can prepare for your actual treatment session. The treatment is straightforward. The BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into preselected areas. You do not have to worry that you will not be able to make normal facial expressions. You will still be able to frown, smile, look surprised and express other emotions. However, your skin is just going to be smoother.
