Life is hard, and it can be hard on our skin. Sun, stress, and age can all cause us to look older on the outside than we feel on the inside. Dynamic wrinkles, the ones that show up when we make certain facial expressions, can be particularly aging. These wrinkles include things such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. BOTOX® is an exciting option for both men and women here in Dearborn. It is incredibly effective at treating dynamic wrinkles and helping people reclaim their youthful appearance.
What Exactly is BOTOX®?
Odds are you have heard of this incredibly popular treatment. It is a purified protein serum approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic use in 2002. Tiny amounts of this serum are strategically injected into the target area(s). This prevents neurotransmitters from reaching certain facial muscles. As a result, the muscle(s) that have been causing the dynamic wrinkles are temporarily paralyzed.
What to Expect with BOTOX® Treatments
This is a very comfortable and expedient procedure to have done in Dearborn. Having your injections can take as little as 10 minutes and it is done in the comfort of our office; many people receive this treatment on their lunch breaks and resume their routines directly after.
After your treatment, it should take a few days for the active ingredient to kick in and paralyze the targeted muscles. After this, the dynamic wrinkles will fade, revealing a more youthful-looking you. If you would like to maintain your results with BOTOX®, follow-up treatments will be required about once every months. Otherwise, muscle movement returns to normal and dynamic wrinkles eventually reappear.
