When you are young and your skin is relatively wrinkle-free, looking at yourself in the mirror is an enjoyable pastime. It’s nice to see how smooth your skin looks, how full your cheeks are, and how vibrant you appear. As you get older, things start to change. That smoothness you took for granted in your skin in youth slowly becomes replaced with wrinkled skin. It is at this point when many people start looking for options to treat their wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are one of the more popular options available today. But where can this treatment be used to address wrinkles?
Treating Wrinkles on Your Face
BOTOX® injections are commonly used to treat wrinkles on the forehead. The wrinkles that BOTOX® treats are called dynamic wrinkles because they are created by the movement of your facial muscles underneath your skin. This means that there are a lot of places on your face that this treatment can address.
For example, when you smile, you form wrinkles on the sides of your eyes. When you’re young, the wrinkles form as you smile and then disappear. With age, the constant movement of your facial muscles around your eyes causes your skin to fold and form creases that are there whether you are smiling or not. Many people refer to these creases as crow’s feet. These can be easily treated with BOTOX® injections.
Another part of your face that develops dynamic wrinkles is your forehead. When you make just about any facial expression, your forehead moves. For example, when you’re angry, your forehead crunches up. When you’re happy, your eyebrows are lifted and cause your forehead to form wrinkles higher up. By getting BOTOX® injections, you are able to make those unwanted wrinkles start to disappear.
How Do the Treatments Work?
As we mentioned, dynamic wrinkles are created by the movement of the muscles underneath your skin. BOTOX® injections work by minimizing the movement of these muscles. As a result, your muscles are able to relax and the wrinkles will slowly fade. When the injections are applied appropriately, you are left with smooth and natural results.
What to Expect from the Treatment
BOTOX® is a safe treatment. It has been used millions of times annually over the course of more than a decade. The treatments are straightforward and simple. Because the treatments are minimally-invasive, you are able to leave the clinic and go right back to your everyday activities. Over the course of the following days, you will start to see an improvement in the appearance of your dynamic wrinkles.
