You smile or frown, and suddenly your face is full of tiny lines. These dynamic wrinkles can certainly make you look older than you really are, but what can you do about them? Facial skin repositioning is something you’re not considering yet, and most of the peel treatments and resurfacing techniques can discolor your skin in a negative way. Try BOTOX® instead. We recommend BOTOX® as a simple means to get rid of unwanted dynamic wrinkles on the face and forehead. It’s a simple cosmetic procedure, and you don’t have to worry about pre-treatment preparation. You also aren’t burdened with follow-up care at home. You’ll discover what many of our San Diego clients already know. BOTOX® is the easiest way to minimize the appearance of smile lines, crow’s feet, and other fine wrinkles.
Are You a Good Candidate?
If you’re an adult who is beginning to experience marionette lines and frown lines on the face or thin, horizontal wrinkles on your forehead, you are suffering from the effects of aging skin. It doesn’t mean you’re becoming unhealthy, it just means that your skin isn’t as supple as it once was. Collagen production has decreased, and the skin layers are no longer holding as much moisture as they did when you were younger. So long as you haven’t been diagnosed with a serious skin condition, you are a likely candidate for BOTOX® injections.
We need to consult with you so that we can examine your facial features. Once we’ve observed you making squinting, smiling, and pouting expressions, we’ll know the strength of your facial muscles and to what degree they are pinching or relaxing your facial or forehead skin when they contract. This tells us the correct dosage and the precise location where BOTOX® should be injected.
How It Works
BOTOX® is a nerve signal inhibitor. It prevents nerve signals from causing muscles to contract fully. The only muscles involved in the making of facial expressions lie just beneath the dermal layers. If these muscles are partially relaxed and remain in a relaxed state, you can still smile and frown, but the dynamic wrinkles and smile lines won’t appear when you do.
This is much simpler than a facelift or any other method for reducing the visibility of dynamic wrinkles in San Diego. Side effects are practically non-existent. Because the skin itself isn’t being treated, your skin tone and texture is of no concern. BOTOX® works just as effectively on dark skin as on light skin, and the thickness of the skin doesn’t matter either.
