Treat Dynamic Wrinkles with BOTOX in San Diego
Dynamic wrinkles are small lines that form near the corners of the mouth and eyes, on the nose bridge, and on the forehead when the skin is pulled or relaxed. This visual sign of aging is caused by poor moisture retention and a decrease in the amount of collagen produced in and below the dermal layers. BOTOX® is a simple fix for this problem. Most of our San Diego clients are thrilled with the results they experience after a single treatment. BOTOX® isn’t a skin rejuvenation miracle, but rather a muscle-relaxing agent that allows the facial skin to remain smooth. Results aren’t permanent, meaning that repeat treatments are eventually necessary. However, there isn’t any other treatment available that produces such positive results from such a simple procedure.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that is injected into the upper-level facial muscles. These are the muscles that control facial movements and allow us to express ourselves. When we smile or frown, dynamic wrinkles appear and make us look old and tired. BOTOX® injections prevent or stop the smile lines and crow’s feet from appearing because the affected muscles no longer contract fully. The fluid acts as a nerve signal inhibitor.
A Simple Treatment
We will first consult with our client at our office in San Diego and watch as certain facial expressions are made. This is necessary because we want to inject the fluid into specific muscles. Once we locate the exact injection sites based on these observations, we can plan for your treatment session.
During the actual treatment, the solution is simply injected into the preselected areas. The fluid settles into the upper-level muscles, and the nerve signal inhibition begins almost immediately. It takes a few days for the full effects to show. The face won’t feel numb, and the client will notice that smiling and frowning are just as simple as before. However, the fine lines and wrinkles no longer become visible.
The muscles become trained to stay relaxed during the period in which the fluid actively inhibits nerve signal transmission. Eventually, repeat injections are necessary, but a smaller amount of the fluid may be used because the muscles are getting used to being in a relaxed state.
Advantages of BOTOX® Injections
The biggest advantage of BOTOX® is that it is a simple injection procedure that requires no surgery. As such, little to no downtime is involved.
