Fine lines and wrinkles have a tendency to show up and make us look older than we feel. In the past, there was not much that could be done. Now, medical advances have opened up a long list of new options. Of all of these choices, BOTOX® treatment is hands down the most well-known and trusted. This non-surgical option for eliminating wrinkles and fine lines takes only minutes and delivers dramatic results in a simple, non-surgical way.
What is BOTOX®?
You have probably heard a lot about BOTOX® treatment and may be wondering exactly what it is and how it works. This injection is basically a purified protein solution that helps restrict muscle movement. As a result, your face is more relaxed and lines disappear.
The treatment process typically takes just minutes to carry out. Visible improvements usually show up in the days after your appointment. You can expect your results to last for months before a repeat treatment is necessary.
Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
So, why does restricting muscle movement help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Dynamic wrinkles are the ones that come from repeated muscle movements in your face. Different facial movements cause wrinkling in different areas. Smiling, for example, causes lines to form around the eyes. Over time, these lines do not completely disappear after the movement has stopped. BOTOX® treatment gives your face enough time to relax to the point that these lines can fade. Here are some common types of dynamic wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines (between your eyebrows)
- Forehead wrinkles
