There are two types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. Dynamic wrinkles are those you see when the face is moving. They are often referred to as laugh lines, frown lines and the infamous crow’s feet. Over time, dynamic wrinkles can transform into static wrinkles if there is no intervention. BOTOX® is an excellent options to treat dynamic wrinkles because they literally stop the line.
In the right hands BOTOX® is amazing with what it can achieve. Mere drops skillfully placed can restore a youthful and relaxed appearance to a tired and tense face. To achieve a natural look, we always individualize our approach for each patient. We also call every patient after the procedure to follow up on results, and do follow-up visits in two weeks to make sure we have everything just right. Because we are trying to achieve result that still look natural occasionally we have to add a touch up here or there. We prefer to err on the conservative side rather than use too much BOTOX® and end up with a less-than-perfect result that cannot be reversed except by waiting for the product to wear off.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® should be thought of as a preventative measure to keep dynamic wrinkles from becoming static. Static wrinkles can still improve with BOTOX® but may require more time and more commitment as well as other types of treatment.
