Why Do Wrinkles Form?
While wrinkles inevitably form as a result of aging, they do not just form because you have gotten older. There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are the ones you see form on your face when you smile, frown, scowl, laugh, or make any kind of expression. These kinds of wrinkles are temporary and disappear once you let your facial muscles relax again. However, over time, the facial muscles can become over-contracted and may freeze. This causes dynamic wrinkles to become permanent static wrinkles.
Static wrinkles are permanent fixtures of the face. They are the wrinkles that remain no matter what facial expression you make, and you can see them etched into your skin. Static wrinkles start to form as the skin loses its elasticity and strength as a result of aging.
How Does Botox Treat Wrinkles?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that contains a substance known as botulinum toxin. This substance is found naturally in the body and is capable of causing the temporary paralysis of muscles. Botox Cosmetic utilizes this unique power as a way to target and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
During the treatment process, Botox is injected into the strained facial muscles that are wrinkling the surface of the skin. The Botox will temporarily relax the facial muscles and allow for smoother skin
Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Chin wrinkles
- Vertical brow lines
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Vertical neck bands
*Individual results may vary.
What Should I Expect During and After My Botox Treatment?
On average, Botox treatments only take around 15 minutes or less to complete. The areas where the Botox will be injected will be marked and the skin will be cleaned. The amount of Botox injected into each area will be determined by the severity of the wrinkles. The injections themselves produce no to minimal discomfort.
There is no recovery period after Botox, and patients can drive themselves home after their treatment. Redness and a feeling of tenderness around the injection sites may occur but should go away quickly. It will take around one week to see the full results of your treatment, and the results should last for a minimum of three months.
