It’s nice to see a positive shift in the way that people perceive cosmetic treatments designed to improve your appearance. It is becoming more and more common for people to openly admit that they use BOTOX® to make unwanted wrinkles disappear. In many parts of the country, getting these injection treatments are considered to be as common as applying makeup or hair gel. Maybe you’ve heard your friends and family members talk about BOTOX® in Worcester, but you’re still uncertain as to whether or not the injection treatments are right for you.
If you have dynamic wrinkles which are caused by facial expressions and you’re tired of the way they make you look, then BOTOX® treatments might be the right thing for you. A lot of individuals who look for BOTOX® have deep wrinkles on their face. These wrinkles are located in the parts of their face that vividly show expression. These include the areas around the eyes and around the corners of the mouth. The frustrating thing about dynamic wrinkles is that with time they can become engraved in your face. This means you have smile lines or crow’s feet around your eyes, even when you’re not smiling.
What makes dynamic wrinkles so frustrating is that they not only make you look older, but they can also make you look upset. It’s not uncommon for someone who has serious dynamic wrinkles to be perceived as being sad, angry, or upset. They are perceived this way even though in reality they’re very happy.
BOTOX addresses dynamic wrinkles by getting to the heart of why you have wrinkles. Since those wrinkles are caused by muscle contraction, BOTOX® targets the muscles in your face. The injections temporarily relax your facial muscles, giving your skin a much-needed break from moving in harmony with your facial muscles.
Since your BOTOX® injections are performed by a trained physician, you are going to be able to make the same facial expressions after your injections that you were able to make prior to treatments. The process of getting BOTOX® treatments is very simple and it is a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in less than one hour.
The results from BOTOX® treatments are not immediately noticeable. It will take around four or five days before you start to notice the change. Also, the results you get from BOTOX® treatments are not permanent. They will last somewhere between three and four months. Somewhere around this time, you’re going to start to notice your muscles contracting with the same severity they contracted prior to the treatment, and you’ll start to notice your dynamic wrinkles returning. If you don’t like the way you look with dynamic wrinkles, simply have a follow-up treatment to keep you looking your best.
Dynamic wrinkles are a frustrating part of life. They rob your face of its natural luster. You deserve to look your best and feel your best. Learn more about how BOTOX® can help you say goodbye to dynamic wrinkles at Worcester Dermatology. Contact us today to schedule your first consultation.
