When you look at your appearance and the routine that you go through to keep your skin healthy and youthful looking, do you feel like you are in a battle? This is a common feeling. Many feel that as soon as they treat one thing, they need to treat something else. Unfortunately, nothing can be done to stop the aging process. However, there are powerful tools that can be used to fight it. Botox is one of these tools.
In order for you to choose effective tools to fight the aging process, you need to understand why certain changes are taking place or why you are seeing some of the common signs of aging. For example, it is common for individuals to see dynamic wrinkles appear on their face, especially when they hit their mid-30’s. Botox is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. How does it work?
Dynamic wrinkles occur because of the way your muscles contract and your skin folds when you make facial expressions. When you are young and your skin is full of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, your muscles contract, your skin slightly creases, and then it bounces back to normal when your face is at rest. When you get older, your skin does not produce the same amount of these beneficial substances and gets thinner. Additionally, because you have made the same expressions millions of times, your skin starts to stay creased instead of bouncing back. Botox is designed to relax those facial muscles and allow your skin to smooth out.
The idea of relaxing your facial muscles may make you feel a little bit nervous. You may wonder if you will still be able to smile and make other expressions. We are here to assure you that you will be able to make normal expressions after Botox injections. Your results are going to look and feel natural. Our expert injectors know exactly which muscles to treat and just how much of the product to use.
One of the things that our clients love about Botox treatments is that they are convenient. Botox is referred to as a “lunchtime” treatment. You can have your consultation and your injections in the amount of time that you would take for your lunch break. And you do not have to worry about experiencing negative side effects, so there is no downtime or recovery.
The results that you see with Botox are going to be gradual. As soon as you walk out of our office, you will not have fewer wrinkles. However, about three or four days after the injections are given, you are going to start to notice a change. You are going to notice that your skin looks more youthful. And others are going to notice that you look more refreshed and rejuvenated.
