Age-related wrinkles, especially those that become prominent when we smile or frown, negatively affect our appearance. We smile and look older. We frown and appear stern and in poor health. Smoothing away these dynamic wrinkles in Orlando can be accomplished without the need for surgery or abrasive resurfacing. BOTOX® is a proven formula for getting rid of those annoying crow’s feet and smile lines. The sunshine here in Orlando, combined with wind, rain, and pollutants, increases the prominence of smile lines, but BOTOX® can be the secret weapon needed to turn back the aging clock. It’s a simple injectable product, and the results are long-lasting.
Where Fine Lines and Wrinkles Exist
As we age and mature, our skin contains less and less collagen. Moisture retention decreases as well. The skin becomes slightly brittle and is subject to creasing. This is especially noticeable around the corners of the eyes, along the nose bridge, and on the forehead. The corners of the mouth, when pulled or relaxed through muscle contraction, become point zero for smile line formation.
These dynamic wrinkles are caused by the relaxation or stretching of the skin when facial expressions are made. BOTOX® works to keep the muscles relaxed. As a result, the lines and wrinkles no longer form when we laugh, pout, or narrow our eyes.
A Closer Look at BOTOX®
BOTOX® is basically a purified protein solution. It is the most popular non-surgical means to smooth away fine lines and other dynamic wrinkles on the face and forehead.
We first need to examine the facial features closely so that we can determine how much of the BOTOX® solution to use and where to inject it. The actual procedure typically takes only minutes to complete, but we want to look at the facial skin and note its thickness.
When our client makes certain facial expressions, the muscles responsible for the skin movements are easily seen. We want to know exactly how much the muscles pull on the skin, and we also want to be able to determine the strength of these muscles.
During this treatment in Orlando, the BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. It’s really that simple. Little to no downtime is involved, making it an extremely convenient treatment.
In the days following the treatment, the muscles are no longer able to fully contract. The client can still smile and pout, but the skin no longer gets pulled or relaxed. The dynamic wrinkles no longer appear.
