One of the first things a person does when they wake up in the morning, is look in the mirror. The appearance of wrinkles on your face can change your appearance. Just a few dynamic wrinkles is all it takes to take you from looking like a young and vibrant individual to being someone who looks worn down and tired.
Dynamic wrinkles are very insidious in that they develop slowly. Often times a person needs to see a photograph of themselves years earlier to thoroughly understand the effects that dynamic wrinkles are having on their appearance. However, when a person has the opportunity to see the difference between how they currently look with the way they looked a few years ago, the negative impact dynamic wrinkles has had on their appearance becomes clear.
Thankfully, BOTOX® is able to provide cosmetic benefits to individuals who are battling with pesky dynamic wrinkles. The procedure is not a facial filler. It is a neural relaxer. It blocks some of the signals that are sent to particular muscles in your face.
As a result of this blockage, the treated muscles will not contract or form dynamic wrinkles. Examples of dynamic wrinkles are the lines you see along the side of your eyes, which are often called crow’s feet. Another example of dynamic wrinkles would be the lines that form from your nose down to the side of your mouth when you smile. The most noticeable dynamic wrinkles on your face are likely those that form in your forehead when you frown or even when you smile.
When BOTOX® blocks the neural signals sent to these muscles, they stay relaxed. Contrary to popular myths, it does not give you a frozen face. The only difference is that when you express emotions now, your face will look the same way it did when you expressed emotions years ago.
BOTOX® is an extremely safe procedure. It has been used by millions of people for more than a decade. The chances of a negative reaction from it, when it is administered properly, are very unlikely. Many doctors like to tell their patients that the drive they took from their home to the doctor’s office is a lot more risky than the treatments.
Products like BOTOX® are designed to be your first line of defense against dynamic wrinkles, helping you to keep a smooth, youthful looking appearance for a long time to come.
