There are a lot of very positive things about getting older. When most people get older, they become more comfortable in their skin. They are happier with who they are, and they have a sense of self-identity and self-confidence that they did not have in youth. There are also some challenging things about getting older. A lot of these challenges have to do with deteriorating health and a deteriorating appearance. Evidence of this deteriorating appearance is the formation of dynamic wrinkles. Thankfully, you can reduce the appearance of wrinkles with BOTOX® in Dallas.
BOTOX® is a minimally invasive treatment designed to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause these wrinkles.
To understand how BOTOX® works, it is important to first understand why dynamic wrinkles appear on your face. As you get older, your skin gets thinner. Every day as you make facial expressions the muscles underneath your skin move. Some of these movements are voluntary, and other movements are completely involuntary. When your facial muscles move, their movement is telegraphed through your skin.
When you’re young and your skin is thick and full of collagen and elastin, it can bounce back after these repetitive movements as if nothing had happened. However, as you get older and as your skin becomes thinner, it loses its ability to bounce back after it forms creases by muscle movements. With time, the folds in your skin caused by facial expressions and muscle movements start to etch lines in your skin. With time, these lines become permanent and become dynamic wrinkles.
What BOTOX® does is temporarily inhibit the muscle movement in your face. This allows your facial skin some time to rest and relax without being folded. During this time, many of the creases that were formed by muscle movement begin to fall out. In short order, your skin starts to look smoother, younger, more vibrant, and, in many cases, more attractive.
In addition to being effective, safe, and fast acting, BOTOX® injections are temporary. Our team in Dallas can help you develop a treatment plan.
