You have likely seen before-and-after pictures of people who have used BOTOX® injections in order to erase their dynamic wrinkles. The results that this treatment produces are pretty impressive. Did you know you can actually use this product to prevent wrinkles? We would like to tell you why this may be a good option for you.
How BOTOX® Can Prevent Wrinkles
Most of our patients who are interested in getting BOTOX® injections are in their mid-30’s and older. This is usually the time when people start seeing dynamic wrinkles on their face – frown lines and crow’s feet. When a person uses this muscle relaxing treatment when they are in their mid-30’s, they can eliminate their dynamic wrinkles and push back the time until they start seeing them. When a person already has deep wrinkles, they may never actually have completely smooth skin again, unless they use a surgical procedure. It is usually only possible to soften deep wrinkles if a person starts using these injections later in life.
We have seen the benefits of younger individuals using this treatment in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming. Think of a fresh and clean piece of paper. Then think about that piece of paper being folded multiple times. When the same fold is made over and over again, what happens to the paper? Even when the paper is not folded, there are still creases. The same thing happens with the facial skin. When you make facial expressions, your skin creases and folds. If you can prevent the muscles from contracting so forcefully, you can prevent dynamic wrinkles.
Are You a Good Candidate?
We have seen the benefit of this treatment for individuals in their late 20’s using this treatment. This is about the time when they may start to see dynamic wrinkles forming on their faces. Of course, each individual is different. If you are concerned about dynamic wrinkles, you are more than welcome to schedule a consultation to meet with our doctor.
The skin in the injection area needs to be healthy. If you have an infection, you need to allow the skin to heal. If you have especially thick skin in areas where injections may be given, you may not qualify for treatment. If you have any issues with symmetry in your face, this may not be the best option for helping you to improve your appearance and prevent wrinkles.
