If you have facial wrinkling due to age, you might want to consider BOTOX® injections. Much of the facial skin wrinkling that you experience as an adult is caused by constant pinching and relaxing of the skin surface due to muscle contractions. Over the years, we smile, frown, pout, and narrow our eyes thousands and thousands of times. Eventually, these dynamic wrinkles become more and more visible when we make various facial expressions. This makes us look older than we really are. We encourage you to learn more about BOTOX® and what it can do to help you.
BOTOX® is a simple remedy for the problem of prominent dynamic wrinkles. The treatment involves the injection of a purified protein solution. In diluted amounts, it’s completely safe, and it works by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscle contraction.
You’ll want to consult with us first so that you can get more information about how this treatment works. It isn’t designed to eliminate deep-set wrinkles. Instead, it keeps the skin surface smooth when the upper-level facial muscles contract. When you smile or frown, thin lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles form in various areas. These are the wrinkles that can be made less visible via BOTOX® injections.
In other words, the treatment isn’t really a skin treatment at all. It doesn’t involve skin ablation or repositioning, nor does it involve abrasive resurfacing or exposure to light or laser energy. It’s not a permanent fix, but it certainly is an effective one. Consult with us to learn all the details of this wrinkle reduction treatment.
A Simple, One-Step Procedure
After we examine your facial features and note where dynamic wrinkles are forming, we can choose the injection sites. During the actual treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into the treatment area(s). You won’t notice immediate results. In the days following the treatment, however, you’ll enjoy smoother skin when you make facial expressions. The muscles aren’t fully contracting, and this keeps the skin from becoming stretched or loosened.
Here at Herrera Medical Group, we know just what to do to provide natural-looking results. Many of our clients schedule regularly BOTOX® injections as needed as part of their normal skin care regimen. Eventually, many of them require less and less of the fluid to maintain their smooth skin. This is because the muscles are becoming used to being in a partially relaxed state.
