Fine lines and wrinkles are an inescapable part of the aging process. The good news is that residents of Charlotte can actively fight these developments with injections of BOTOX. This is an FDA-approved treatment that has the ability to instantly release the tension that’s responsible for these creases. Best of all, BOTOX injections are minimally invasive. These treatments take only minutes to complete and are capable of producing impressive results that last for up to six months.
How BOTOX Erases Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles are the superficial creases that appear around the mouth, the eyes, and at the brow whenever these areas of the face are in motion. They are the direct result of tension that gradually builds within the muscles that control and create facial movement. When BOTOX is injected into these areas, this powerful neurotoxin blocks nerve signals and temporarily relaxes the expressive muscles. As the underlying tension abates, the surface of the skin regains its formerly smooth and youthful appearance. Once the effects of BOTOX wear off, these treatments can be safely repeated by the doctor for extended benefits.
Using BOTOX To Prevent The Early Signs Of Aging
Many Charlotte residents are opting to use BOTOX as a wholly preventative measure. By relaxing select facial muscles, it is possible to delay the development of crow’s feet, frown lines, and the vertical, perioral wrinkles that are often referred to as “smoker’s wrinkles”. Because our doctor only inserts a very small amount of this neurotoxin at each injection site, all patients are capable of retaining the ability to continue making natural-looking facial expressions even as they maintain their youthful good looks.
What You Can Expect When Receiving A BOTOX Anti-Aging Treatment
These injections take just minutes to administer, making this treatment easy to fit into your busy schedule. During these treatments, the BOTOX solution is administered to the areas with evidence of dynamic wrinkling. Moreover, there is little to no downtime with these procedures and most people are able to resume their regular activities right away.
Why Choose BOTOX Over Other Anti-Aging Remedies?
There are many ways in which the natural aging process affects the look and overall integrity of the skin. Finding the right anti-wrinkle treatments for addressing specific types of facial aging is a vital part of getting impressive results. While procedures involving controlled, skin damage such as micro-needling, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, foster increased collagen production and the rapid formation of new and healthy skin cells, these procedures do not address dynamic creases that are caused by underlying muscle tension. Whenever dynamic wrinkles exist at the brow, around the mouth, or at the eyes, injectable neurotoxins are often the most appropriate and least invasive solution.
