There are a lot of treatments that are available to help individuals deal with wrinkles. Some of these treatments are surgical. But most people do not like the idea of going under the knife in order to treat their wrinkles. If you want to get rid of your wrinkles in a non-surgical way, BOTOX® may be right for you.
Before deciding that BOTOX® is right for you, it is important for you to understand which kind of wrinkles you have. There are at least two different types of wrinkles that you can experience on your face. First, you can have static wrinkles. These are wrinkles that you see at all times, no matter what kind of facial expression you are making. They are there because of sagging skin. If you have static wrinkles, dermal fillers can help you.
The second type of wrinkle that you may experience is dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that you have on your face that come as a result of the contraction of the muscles under your skin. Think of the wrinkles that people have around their eyes when they smile or squint. These are dynamic wrinkles. Or think of a person who crinkles their forehead when they are wondering about something or angry about something. These are also dynamic wrinkles that can be treated with BOTOX®.
The reason why BOTOX® works on dynamic wrinkles is because when it is injected into the facial muscles, it causes the facial muscles to relax. The amount of the product that you need and which muscles it will be injected into will be determined by the severity of your dynamic wrinkles and your particular goals. However, you do not have to be scared that you will not be able to make any facial expressions at all. You will still be able to smile, squint, frown and make other expressions. However, your muscles will be more relaxed, which means you will not have the same deep dynamic wrinkles.
