Maintaining a youthful appearance is becoming increasingly important in the modern age. Not only does having smooth and line-free complexions make people more confident, but it can also make them more marketable across all areas of life. The good news is that BOTOX® Cosmetic is making it possible for consumers to stave off the early signs of aging without having to commit to invasive surgeries. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are currently one of the fastest and easiest ways to temporarily release dynamic wrinkles around the mouth and eyes and across the forehead.
What are Dynamic Wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that are directly associated with the movement of your facial muscles. They are also creases that are caused by these movements. When you smile, laugh, frown, furrow your brow, or use your face to communicate any type of emotion, your expressive muscles are engaged. Over time, the movement of these muscles creates stored tension that begins to manifest at the surface of the skin. If you smile a lot, you may have crow’s feet around your eyes. If you smoke or regularly purse your lips, you likely have tiny, perioral wrinkles around your mouth. Although these creases aren’t visible whenever your facial muscles are relaxed, they can definitely make you look much older than you truly are.
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Relaxes Dynamic Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved solution that can be injected into the face to temporarily relax select facial muscles. This solution works by blocking the nerve signals that control facial movement. As the expressive muscles relax, crow’s feet, frown lines, perioral wrinkles, and other dynamic creases will fade away. There is absolutely no cutting or downtime with these treatments.
