When we look at ourselves in the mirror, we either like what we see or notice things about our appearance that we want to change. It is usually not until a person approaches middle-age that they really appreciate what they had when they were young. As a person gets close to middle-age, they start to develop some of the telltale signs of aging. One major sign of aging is the development of dynamic wrinkles. Thankfully, treatments like BOTOX® can minimize the appearance of these wrinkles.
For many people, the idea of dynamic wrinkles is a new one. Most people think that wrinkles are just wrinkles. But the truth is wrinkles can be broken down into two categories. The first category is static wrinkles. These are the wrinkles you have on your face regardless of the facial expression you are making.
Dynamic wrinkles are a little bit more complicated. These wrinkles are produced when the movement of your facial muscles telegraph onto your skin. To get a good idea of what a dynamic wrinkle is, look in the mirror and smile. Now look on the sides of your eyes. Do you see lines? If so, these are dynamic wrinkles called crow’s feet. These are the wrinkles that are only visible when your facial muscles are in action.
Dynamic wrinkles happen because as you age, your skin becomes thinner. Your skin has closer contact with your facial muscles. So, the movement of your facial muscles is transmitted through your skin. These wrinkles are best treated by using a product designed to minimize the level of contraction that your facial muscles produce when you make a facial expression.
The most popular wrinkle treatment on the market today is BOTOX®. For more than a decade, millions of individuals have used BOTOX® as a way to minimize the severity of the contractions of their facial muscles.
BOTOX® is extremely safe. It has been tested and approved by the FDA and has been used on countless individuals. BOTOX® is also non-surgical. It simply requires injections in the areas that you want treated.
The effects of BOTOX® are not immediate. The results start to become apparent after a few days or so. When you do see the maximum benefit, you will agree that BOTOX® is one of the most powerful tools available to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
