If you’re a mature adult and are beginning to notice the appearance of fine wrinkles and crow’s feet on the surface of your facial skin, you’re probably trying to smooth them away via the use of moisturizers and protein-rich lotions. These don’t help much, do they? If the wrinkles are dynamic in nature, forming only when you smile, frown, or look surprised, it’s because your skin contains less collagen than it did when you were younger. Your skin may also be beginning to thin, and this makes it difficult to maintain a smooth surface. A popular fix for this problem is BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
This simple treatment relaxes the facial muscles, so that when you make certain expressions, the muscles don’t fully contract. This greatly diminishes the appearance of those annoying smile lines. You want to look your age, and there’s nothing better than keeping the facial skin surface smooth. Consider BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to target unwanted facial wrinkles.
Simpler Than Other Treatments
Many of the alternative treatments for dynamic wrinkles have unwanted side effects. Chemical peels can bleach the skin, and abrasive resurfacing can actually degrade the overall skin texture. Relaxing the facial muscles is a simpler form of treatment, and that’s because the skin itself isn’t being subjected to harsh abrasion or the introduction of chemicals. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections affect the muscles and their ability to contract, but the skin itself isn’t affected. This makes it a favored treatment for those who aren’t yet ready for anything invasive.
