Dynamic wrinkle lines such as crow’s feet form gradually over time. They’re most prominent around the corners of the mouth and eyes. These thin lines are etched by constant pinching of the skin via muscle contractions. They can’t be smoothed away by dermabrasion, and the thinness of the skin makes them difficult to treat via chemical peel or needling. Botox® cosmetic, however, helps reduce the appearance of these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that lie just beneath the skin.
In other words, Botox® doesn’t treat the skin directly. The marionette lines and crow’s feet aren’t all that apparent until you smile, narrow your eyes, or purse your lips. Suddenly, you look as though you’ve aged 20 years. If only those muscles didn’t contract fully, you’d worry no longer about those annoying expression lines and wrinkles.
These are not the larger muscles that lie further beneath the skin. The upper-level muscles are weaker but do pull or pinch the skin to some degree. When these muscles are kept in a relaxed state, you can still smile and make other facial expressions because the stronger muscles below aren’t affected. Neither are the sensory nerves that allow you to feel your skin with your fingers.
Quick Treatment, Dramatic Results
When we consult with you, we will explain the procedure in detail. We’ll also ask you to perform some facial expressions so that we can see which muscles need to be relaxed. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes to complete. The fluid settles into the muscle tissue, and after about three days, you begin to see the magical results.
The crow’s feet and smile lines are barely noticeable because the skin remains smooth. The muscles’ ability to contract has been severely compromised, and this means fewer dynamic wrinkling no matter how much you pout, widen your eyes, or open your mouth in a big gape.
The effect lasts for about five months. After the protein solution is flushed from the body, the wrinkle lines will start appearing again. All you need at this time is a series of repeat injections.
This is an alternative to skin resurfacing or laser treatment. Because it’s not an actual skin treatment, it’s suitable no matter your skin tone. There’s no risk of bleaching, dimpling, or plumping of the skin surface.
