The Youthful Powers of BOTOX
There comes a time in most people’s lives when they look at themselves in the mirror and start to see the formation of lines and wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles are an unfortunate side effect of getting older. Understandably, when this change first starts to occur, people feel frustrated, nervous, and a little bit disappointed. In these circumstances, many ask if they should get Botox to make themselves look younger.
Understanding Why You Want the Treatment
Getting Botox, like any other cosmetic treatment, is a personal decision. If you are considering having this treatment done, you need to evaluate why you want to get it. You need to look at your face and identify the type of wrinkles you have.
This idea might catch you off guard. A lot of people think that wrinkles are wrinkles. That’s just not true. You might have static wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that are on your face regardless of the expression you make. These wrinkles are caused by a decrease in skin laxity as well as the loss of facial volume. Botox is not the right treatment for these types of wrinkles. You would be better off using a dermal filler to restore facial volume in this instance.
However, if you look at your face and you see that you have wrinkles that appear when you make facial gestures, you may be battling with dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles can be a game changer when it comes to your appearance. This is because dynamic wrinkles appear in the parts of your face where you make the most expressions, such as your eyes and around your mouth.
Ironically, since these are the parts of your face associated with expression, these are also the parts of your face that people look at right away when they see. If you have dynamic wrinkles, they become noticeable right away. Botox is an excellent solution for addressing dynamic wrinkles.
Why This Treatment Could Work for You
The reason why Botox does such of a good job at addressing dynamic wrinkles is because it gets to the heart of your wrinkles. The reason why you’re developing these wrinkles is because as you make voluntary or involuntary facial gestures, your facial muscles are contracted. This contraction causes your skin to fold.
When you are young, your skin is able to fold with these contractions and then bounce back. As you get older, your skin loses the ability to bounce back and the movements of your facial muscles began to etch lines in your skin.
What Botox does is cause your facial muscles to relax in such a way that dynamic wrinkles are not created. This treatment will not rob you of your ability to make facial expressions. When administered properly, it will leave you with a natural look and fewer wrinkles. Find out for yourself how this treatment can turn you into a younger version of yourself. Contact us today.
