It is common for individuals who are in their late 20’s to start feeling concerned about protecting their skin in order to look as youthful as possible for as long as possible. It is usually at this time that people, especially women, start adamantly protecting their skin from the sun and using anti-aging skin treatments. This is definitely good and can go a long way in helping a person to have youthful looking skin. However, there will come a point when more is needed if a person it would like to keep their skin looking wrinkle-free. It is usually when at-home treatments are no longer getting the job done that people consider BOTOX® injections.
How BOTOX® Works
While there is no specific age that is recommended for a person to begin using this treatment, it is usually used by individuals who are in their mid-30’s. It is usually at this point when a person realizes that their at-home treatments are not preventing or treating their dynamic wrinkles. The reason why this happens is because at-home treatments cannot really get to the root cause of why dynamic wrinkles appear.
Dynamic wrinkles exist because of the way facial muscles contract when expressions are made and the effect this has on the facial skin. For example, when you smile, the sides of your eyes crease. When this happens millions of times throughout your life, it is eventually going to leave deeper lines in your skin. This is why it is common for people to develop crow’s feet.
When BOTOX® is injected into the facial muscles that cause deep creases, the skin is able to rest. The muscles will not contract with the same intensity. So the skin around them will not crease and fold in the same way. This allows a person to enjoy a more youthful and rested look.
One of the reasons why these injections are so popular is because of the fact that they work. They do not promise to give results and then end up disappointing users. When you visit our office for treatment, you can be sure that you will see results. The extent of the results that you see will depend on the condition of your skin and how deep your dynamic wrinkles are.
Good Candidates for BOTOX® Injections
It is becoming more and more common for individuals who are in their late 20s and early 30s to turn to this treatment in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles. If you are interested in maintaining a youthful face that has no dynamic wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for this treatment.
This treatment is also appropriate for individuals who already have dynamic wrinkles. No matter if you are just starting to see dynamic wrinkles appear or if you have moderate dynamic wrinkles, you can still benefit from BOTOX® injections.
