The natural aging process brings with it a lot of hazards, but one of the most distressing for many people is the havoc it wreaks on the appearance of their face. As we age, the skin of our face naturally lose their volume and elasticity, causing sagging, fine lines, and deep creases. Areas that see a lot of motion such as the mouth and corners of the eyes are especially likely to develop wrinkles. Among the most common are crow’s feet, frown lines, and creases between the eyebrows. Whether alone or together, these signs of aging can make you look worried, sad, or just plain old.
While wrinkles can’t be defeated by at-home treatments, there is a surprisingly simple solution to them. Botox is a popular, noninvasive treatment that works specifically to reduce or even eliminate these dynamic wrinkles that come from repetitive movements. By relaxing the muscles that make these creases appear, Botox can smooth out your frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, leaving you with skin that looks smooth, even, and years younger.
The Botox Candidate
Botox is a suitable treatment for any patient who wants to reduce or eliminate their dynamic facial lines, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. It’s an especially good option for people with creasing on the forehead, wrinkles between the eyes or at the top of the nose, crow’s feet, or frown lines. It can benefit any patient who suffers from early aging and is quite safe. Ideally, patients will be in good health and will understand how the treatment process works and what they can realistically expect from their results.
Before receiving Botox injections, it’s important to go through a consultation to be sure that we understand your specific concerns and that Botox is an appropriate treatment for your situation. During your consultation, we’ll conduct a brief examination to determine the cause of your problem, and we’ll listen to your medical history and your concerns about your face. After the examination, we’ll be able to recommend a specific treatment plan for you. Depending on your needs, you may wish to use Botox alone or pair it with dermal fillers to reduce static wrinkles or facial treatments to improve skin texture as well.
