The visual signs of aging can cause anxiety as well as a loss of self-confidence. Facial features undergo changes as the skin becomes less moisturized and succumbs to the effects of gravity. A decrease in the amount of collagen production speeds up the wrinkling process. Frown lines and crow’s feet become much more noticeable. If this sounds like you, consider a BOTOX® treatment. BOTOX® is a safe, medically-approved procedure that can smooth out those smile and frown lines and restore your facial features to a more youthful state. We highly recommend consulting with us to learn about all of your treatment options, including non-surgical alternatives like BOTOX®.
Getting Rid of Frown Lines
Several treatment options are available, but most involve the use of harsh abrasives, chemicals or plumping techniques. However, eliminating bothersome frown lines and fine-line wrinkles can be accomplished merely by training the muscles in the face to stay relaxed. This is how BOTOX® works.
This product was originally developed as a means for relaxing muscles and reducing muscle spasms. It is equally effective at reducing the appearance of frown lines and forehead folds.
How It Smooths the Skin
When BOTOX® is injected just beneath the skin, the facial muscles remain in a relaxed, non-contracted state. Since the skin is no longer stretched or relaxed, dynamic wrinkles and frown lines remain unnoticeable. This creates smoother skin and gives the individual a more youthful appearance.
What Patients Need to Know
BOTOX® is safe for use on most adults, but it’s important to consult with us to find out if any medications being taken could interfere with its effectiveness. If we decide that this injectable is a suitable treatment option, we will ask the client to perform some facial expressions so that we can determine the extent of the wrinkling problem as well as locate the areas where the injections will work best.
The effects can last for up to six months, and subsequent treatments use less of the BOTOX® fluid because the muscles are being trained to stay relaxed. This is yet another advantage of using this treatment.
