Many factors contribute to skin that becomes wrinkled when stretched or relaxed. These dynamic wrinkles appear even more prominent when the skin is thin, damaged by overexposure to the sun’s rays, and made less supple as a result of a decrease in the amount of collagen it contains. Here in the Dallas area, mature adults seeking to find a non-surgical solution to the problem of wrinkled facial skin often enjoy great results through BOTOX® injections. This procedure allows the skin to remain smoother without the need for invasive procedures.
Damaged Skin and Fine Wrinkles
The sun gets pretty high in the sky during a Dallas summer, and the direct rays cause much damage to the skin, primarily sapping the tissues of moisture. This, combined with other environmental factors and a decrease in collagen production, leads to premature aging and crinkling of the skin.
Most of these wrinkles are dynamic in nature, meaning they don’t form until the skin is pulled or compressed through muscle action. This is why these lines and wrinkles appear around the mouth, near the corners of the eyes, and even on the forehead. BOTOX® injections allow the skin to remain smooth in appearance because the muscles that control facial expressions are kept in a relaxed state.
How BOTOX® Works
When we consult with the client, we outline the procedure and explain how BOTOX® works on the facial muscles. When injected beneath the skin and directly into the upper-level muscles of the face or forehead, the nerve endings that control the contraction of these muscles no longer get the signal across. In other words, BOTOX® is a sort of muscle relaxing agent.
If we determine that BOTOX® is a suitable treatment option, we can move forward with planning your treatment. The treatment itself it straightforward. The BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. The full results take days to manifest, but you will soon start to notice a reduction in dynamic wrinkles in the treated area. The client still smiles and frowns as usual, but the skin remains smoother, and dynamic wrinkles are hardly visible. Little to no downtime is involved after the treatment.
