BOTOX® is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps to smooth out non-set wrinkles on the face and forehead. Specifically, it works to eliminate the appearance of smile lines and frown lines around the perimeter of the mouth and eyes. These tiny crow’s feet become apparent in strong light because of the shadows they produce.
Unlike surgical procedures and skin resurfacing techniques, BOTOX® is an injectable that affects nerve endings. This is not a filler treatment, but rather a muscle-relaxing procedure. When the muscles are relaxed, wrinkles are much less noticeable.
If you are wondering whether or not you are an ideal candidate for this treatment, let us help you. We offer complete consultation services for those individuals who are concerned about the age-related appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face and forehead.
The Ideal Candidate for BOTOX®
Adults who have small, thin wrinkles around the mouth that become more and more noticeable when certain facial expressions are made are good candidates for BOTOX®. When we frown, wrinkles and horizontal skin folds often form on the forehead as well. The muscles contract, pulling the skin in a certain direction and relaxing the skin in other areas. Most often, these smile and frown lines occur near the eyes, to the left and right of the lips and in the center of the forehead.
Remember that BOTOX® is not a chemical treatment, nor does it draw in moisture to plump up an area of the face. It is an effective treatment for smoothing the skin where muscle contractions cause the surface to relax and fold.
What Patients Can Expect
At the InjectAbility® Clinic, we consult with the client prior to treatment and examine the face closely. We notice which expressions cause smile lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, and we map out their precise location.
During the actual procedure, the fluid containing BOTOX® is skillfully injected just beneath the skin. A typical procedure usually takes about 30 minutes. After a few weeks, the muscles become trained to stay relaxed, so subsequent injection procedures use less and less of the BOTOX® fluid.
