As you grow older, using your expressive facial muscles can cause your face to crinkle. This is actually how crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines, and perioral wrinkles form. Although you might take excellent care of your skin, dynamic wrinkles like these can still develop over time. Fortunately, residents of Granite Bay have a safe, easy and minimally invasive way to both prevent dynamic wrinkles and release them. BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment that can instantly minimize the appearance of these motion-related creases.
How BOTOX Can Help You Fight The Signs Of Aging
During these treatments, small amounts of the BOTOX solution are injected into select facial areas. Once in place,the treatment will effectively block the nerve signals that control the expressive muscles. As these muscles relax, underlying tension will abate, and the surface skin will quickly smooth out. It’s important to note, however, that the effects of BOTOX are not permanent. Within just three to six months, full nerve functioning will be restored and BOTOX injections will have to be repeated for those who wish to maintain their new and more youthful appearances.
Using BOTOX As A Preventative, Anti-Aging Measure
A number of Granite Bay residents are currently using regular BOTOX injections as part of their proactive, anti-aging plans. Given that BOTOX causes the expressive muscles to relax, repeat treatments can help these muscles remain immobile for increasingly longer periods of time. During these procedures, only very nominal amounts of BOTOX are used and thus, patients can continue making a variety of natural-looking expressions, even as they enjoy being wrinkle-free. T
BOTOX Can Be Safely Paired With Many Other Anti-Aging Solutions
BOTOX is a very effective anti-aging procedure when used all on its own. Best of all, there are a number of complementary, cosmetic treatments that BOTOX can be safely paired with as needed. For instance, although this treatment works amazingly when used to treat dynamic facial wrinkling, it is not a suitable solution for deep creases at the nasolabial folds, loose, sagging skin, or other signs of significant, facial volume loss. When people suffer from both dynamic wrinkling and volume loss, they’re often advised to receive dermal filler injections and BOTOX injections in a single setting. This combination is sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift. It can produce remarkable changes for those with moderate to advance facial creasing.
How To Know If You’re A Good Candidate For BOTOX Treatment In Granite Bay
As a general rule, patients must be at least 18 years of age. To qualify as an acceptable candidate for this procedure, you should not be pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of your appointment. People who have bleeding or clotting disorders, nerve disorders, or known allergies to the botulinum toxin should not receive BOTOX injections. Beyond these things, however, our specialist will also want to know more about any recent use of injectable neurotoxins or dermal fillers.
