As we get older, one of the things that we notice is that we seem to have an expression on our face even if we are not purposely making that expression. For example, think of individuals who seem to have a constant grumpy look on their face. They have a deep crease in between their eyebrows and wrinkles on their forehead. These individuals may not be grumpy at all, but the deep lines in their face express that feeling. Or look at individuals who have crow’s feet. It looks like they are constantly squinting, even though they may be wearing sunglasses or are indoors. Thankfully, BOTOX® can eliminate crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles.
The type of wrinkles we mentioned above, such as crow’s feet, a deep wrinkle in between the brows or deep wrinkles on the forehead, are known as dynamic wrinkles. These appear on younger individuals when they make a facial expression. They also appear on older individuals when they make facial expressions, but throughout the years, these deep lines become etched into their face. Their muscles stay contracted even when they are not purposely contracting them. BOTOX® has been designed to relax facial muscles. When it is injected into certain facial muscles, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles will disappear.
Most individuals qualify as good candidates for BOTOX®. The very first qualification is that you are dealing with dynamic wrinkles. If you have static wrinkles, which are on your face no matter if you are making a facial expression are not, it is better to treat them with dermal fillers and other cosmetic procedures. Individuals have to be between the ages of 18 and 65 in order to receive BOTOX® treatment.
Getting BOTOX® treatment is very straightforward. During your first consultation, we will simply look at the area you would like to have treated, evaluate your medical history and then come up with a treatment plan. BOTOX® sessions usually only take about 20 minutes. The injections are very simple to make. They are skillfully injected into certain muscles in order to eliminate crow’s feet or other dynamic wrinkles.
One thing that you should be aware of is that your crow’s feet will not be gone immediately after the injection. It takes a little bit of time in order for the BOTOX® to begin to work. Most individuals see the full results after about 10 days of treatment. The BOTOX® will last for about three months.
