BOTOX® was originally developed to treat certain types of muscle spasms, but nowadays it’s the most popular form of wrinkle-reduction. It’s a unique procedure because although the wrinkles form in the skin, the skin itself isn’t treated. The secret of BOTOX® is in its ability to relax the muscles and prevent them from fully contracting. These are the muscles that control facial expressions.
Mature adults notice that fine lines and crow’s feet become more prominent in areas around the sides of the eyes and mouth, and horizontal lines on the forehead are more noticeable when frowning or narrowing of the eyes is performed. A single BOTOX® injection treatment can smooth away these wrinkles, and the results last for many months. In fact, the treatment actually reduces the chance of these lines reforming because the muscles that lie below the skin surface become trained to stay relaxed.
After the purified protein solution is injected, the nerve endings in the upper-level facial muscles don’t send the signal to the muscle tissue, and the muscle cannot fully contract. This means that the facial skin in the targeted areas will remain smooth, and the dynamic wrinkles that make us look older than we really are no longer become visible. The skin simply cannot become pinched or relaxed even though the individual can still smile, frown, pout, or make other expressions.
Simple Injection Procedure
Our team of trained professionals will need to consult with the client so that we can see where these smile lines and other dynamic wrinkles form. We prepare the dosage according to the depth of the muscles and the thickness of the skin. The solution is injected into strategic locations so that only the upper-level muscles are affected. Sensory nerves, the ones that allow us to feel our face, aren’t affected at all.
After a couple days, the client notices that the skin near the mouth, eyes, and other areas where dynamic wrinkling would otherwise occur remains smooth. The BOTOX® fluid isn’t active forever, and after about four months, repeat injections may be necessary. However, during this time, the muscles are getting used to being in a relaxed state, so less and less of the fluid is necessary for treatment in subsequent injections. In the end, the treatment has become a preventive one as well as an active one.
