Restoring your youthful beauty doesn’t need to be a time-consuming or uncomfortable process. If you are tired of masking age-related imperfections with expensive beauty products, then you might be the perfect candidate for BOTOX® injections.
Active Ingredients Inside BOTOX®
The primary ingredient in BOTOX® is a unique substance that consists of a purified protein solution. This solution has been used to treat dozens of different health conditions over the last few decades. When it is injected into a muscle, it relaxes the soft tissue. Over the course of a few hours, that muscle will unclench and become relaxed. In addition to treating serious muscle conditions, BOTOX® is also an effective option for dynamic wrinkles.
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
Many patients are surprised to hear that there are actually a few different types of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles develop when an individual repeatedly contracts a muscle. An example of that would be crow’s feet around an individual’s eyes. As the collagen and elastin in the skin break down, those wrinkles become more pronounced. An individual may also clench the muscles near the eyes and forehead without even realizing it, and that will make the fine lines very visible. The most effective way to reduce the appearance of those dynamic wrinkles is to force the muscles to unclench.
Ideal BOTOX® Candidate
Even though this injectable can be very effective, it isn’t the best option for everyone. As a general rule, this product is a good option for healthy adults who are struggling with fine lines and wrinkles. Patients who have been diagnosed with any serious skin conditions should notify our team of those issues during the initial consultation.
An Average BOTOX® Appointment
One of the reasons why injectable treatments have become so popular in recent years is because they only take a few minutes to administer. If you are nervous about discomfort, then we can begin this procedure by applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment site. After your skin is numb, one or more doses of BOTOX® will be injected into the skin with a fine needle.
