If you are dealing with dynamic wrinkles, it is likely that you have come to a point where you realize that over-the-counter treatments are just not cutting it. You may be wondering if BOTOX® is the right option for you. We are proud to offer this treatment in our Homewood office. It actually gets to the root of the problem and has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce or completely remove dynamic wrinkles. Below is more information about BOTOX® treatment and how it can benefit you.
How BOTOX® Can Benefit You
It is likely that you purchase over-the-counter creams, serums, cleansers, and other skin care products. It is true that these products have their place and can provide some benefits to your skin. The problem with using these products in order to treat dynamic wrinkles is that they cannot reach down to the muscles. This is where dynamic wrinkles begin.
When you have a BOTOX® treatment, the product is actually going to cause your facial muscles to relax. You do not need to worry about not being able to make normal facial expressions. Just the right amount of the product is injected in order to give you results that look natural and healthy.
Something that you are likely going to appreciate about having this treatment performed is that the results are subtle. First, this is referred to as a lunchtime treatment because you are not going to deal with any uncomfortable or negative side effects. You will be able to go right back to your normal life without anyone even noticing that you had the treatment performed. In the days following your injection sessions, you are going to start to notice a change in your appearance.
You can expect the treatment to last up to four months. There are different factors that will determine how long the product lasts. When the product wears off, you will be able to return to our Homewood office in order to have a follow-up BOTOX® treatment session.
Preventing Dynamic Wrinkles with BOTOX®
According to the FDA, an individual needs to be between the ages of 18 and 65 in order to qualify for these injections for cosmetic purposes. You likely do not need to have these injections given if you are just 18 or 19 years old. This is because you probably do not have dynamic wrinkles. However, individuals who are on the younger side, perhaps in their late 20s, may wish to use these injections in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles.
