BOTOX® is a great way for you to enjoy a younger and more refreshed appearance. However, before you decide if this product is right for you, you should take some time to learn about what it is and if you make a good candidate for this treatment. This will help you understand exactly what it will do for you and how long you can expect the results to last. If you are interested in getting this popular treatment in Birmingham, the following information will prove especially helpful for you.
The first thing you need to understand about BOTOX® is that it is a treatment designed to help you with your dynamic wrinkles. Did you know that you can have different types of wrinkles on your face? In fact, there are two main types of wrinkles: static and dynamic.
In order to be a candidate for this popular injectable, you have to have dynamic wrinkles. How do you know what kind of wrinkles you have? Take a second look in the mirror. When you are not smiling or making any type of facial expression, do you have wrinkles? If so, you have static wrinkles. If you have these types of wrinkles, you would make a better candidate for dermal filler injections and skin tightening treatments.
If the wrinkles you have on your face are the result of movements that your muscles make, BOTOX® can help. These wrinkles are typically noticed at the outer corners of your eyes, between your eyebrows and on your forehead. Lines and wrinkles such as these are typically referred to as frown lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® is great at treating all these wrinkles because it helps relax the muscles on your face, allowing the lines and wrinkles on your skin to smooth out. You can say goodbye to your dynamic wrinkles thanks to this treatment.
It is possible to choose this treatment in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles from becoming deep creases in their face later on in life. This is why many people consider undergoing injections in their mid to late 20s. Taking pre-emptive action can help you avoid forming deep and defined dynamic wrinkles in the first place.
After you receive your first series of injections, you will see the full results of your treatment after a few days. Most patients can expect their results to last for three or four months. Of course, everyone is different and will get different results. We will help you learn more about what to expect during your initial consultation at our office in Birmingham.
