Photo editing software has quickly grown in popularity. This is because with the click of a mouse, wrinkles and other blemishes can be immediately removed from a person’s photograph. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had something like this in real life? Unfortunately, there is no magic tool to help us out. We all have to deal with the aging process. Thankfully, BOTOX® comes as close to a magic tool as possible. BOTOX® is an amazing tool when it comes to fighting against the effects that dynamic wrinkles can have on a person’s appearance. With a few simple injections, we can make wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines disappear.
What Are Dynamic Wrinkles?
As the name implies, dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that appear on your face when your face is in motion. For example, if you look at yourself in the mirror and see wrinkles forming on your forehead and around your eyes when you smile, these are dynamic wrinkles. When you let your face relax, those wrinkles all but disappear. When we are younger, they usually disappear completely.
How Does BOTOX® Help Get Rid of Dynamic Wrinkles?
BOTOX® is able to accomplish this goal by getting to the heart of what’s causing you to develop these types of wrinkles in the first place. They form because the muscles that lie just beneath your skin are transmitting or transposing their movement on your skin. As you get older, your skin becomes thinner. As a result, the movement of your facial muscles starts to show through your skin.
With time, as your muscle movements are telegraphed in your skin, they can actually start to etch in permanent wrinkles. If you don’t want this to happen, BOTOX® can step in. This popular injectable works by relaxing the muscles that you use to make facial expressions. Since the muscles do not contract as harshly, they do not transmit their movements through your skin. This means that while your muscles are treated, your skin has time to relax. Wrinkles start to disappear, and you quickly begin to look a lot younger than you did when your dynamic wrinkles were prominent.
The results of your BOTOX® treatment typically last for up to four months. With time, the effects will begin to wear off. However, if you like the way you look with your injections, you can quickly and easily come back for touchup treatments with our experts at Elite Vein & Hair Restoration.
