Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned every one of your smile lines, you don’t have to show them anymore.
Now, thanks to a new use for an approved drug, dynamic lines can be dramatically softened. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation uses Botox ® injections to improve the appearance of forehead worry lines and frown lines, eye laugh lines and crow’s feet or other dynamic wrinkles.
Botox ® blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Botox ® relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. The contraction of the muscle is the culprit causing the wrinkles. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Botox ® injections have been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many ophthalmological and neurological disorders. Each year, thousands of patients receive Botox ® treatments for a variety of conditions including excessive sweating, and it is quickly becoming a popular treatment to reverse the visible signs of aging.
The common areas of treatment include the forehead lines, the brow lines and the outer aspects of the eyes for the crow’s feet. Botox ® injections are an effective, yet temporary solution for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. The effects of the injections last from three to four months and sometimes longer. You will need to have injections about two to three times a year. The early studies indicate that the duration of treatment benefits is increased over time so that you should require injections less frequently in the future. Ultimately patients notice rapid and excellent results with smooth and unwrinkled skin leading to a more youthful appearance.
In addition to Botox ®, we provide additional wrinkle removal procedures such as collagen injections, Photorejuvenation, and laser resurfacing. ThermaCool also aids in the reduction of wrinkles and the growth of collagen.
