One of the simplest and most effective treatments for fine wrinkles on the face is BOTOX® injections. This is a non-surgical procedure that improves the appearance of smile lines and crow’s feet. Unlike peel treatments and dermabrasion, BOTOX® treatments don’t treat the skin directly. This makes the treatment suitable for all skin tones.
We usually suggest BOTOX® treatments for our clients who bring us their concerns about marionette lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet. These are dynamic wrinkles that appear when the facial skin is tightened or relaxed through muscle contractions. This condition can be greatly improved without the need for skin ablation or aggressive resurfacing. You can enjoy a refreshed appearance with a single treatment.
The BOTOX® solution acts as a natural muscle-relaxing agent. When the fluid is injected directly into the upper-level facial muscles, nerve signals don’t get through. The muscles don’t contract as fully as before, and the facial skin isn’t pulled or pinched as a result. The dynamic wrinkles that form when certain facial expressions are made no long appear.
It is important to consult with us to get the accurate information on how BOTOX® helps smooth the facial skin. Remember that this is an injection procedure that must be performed by an experienced cosmetic professional.
When we consult with the client, we examine the facial skin closely. We watch as the client makes various facial expressions. This tells us the size and strength of the facial muscles. It’s very important that we observe this so that we can determine the proper dosage and injection sites.
BOTOX® is eventually flushed from the body with other waste. When the lines become visible once more, repeat injections are necessary. However, less of the fluid may be used with each successive treatment. That’s because the muscles have slowly become used to being in a more relaxed state.
This is the most popular skin treatment in the world for the elimination of smile lines and other types of dynamic wrinkling. Get all the facts by scheduling a consultation at Advanced Skin Care & Laser Center in Wyomissing. Contact us today to book your appointment!
