As adults, we notice difference signs of aging each decade. Often, they appear as fine lines on the forehead which appear when the skin is stretched or relaxed. For this reason, these lines are called dynamic wrinkles. When an individual smiles, frowns, pouts, or narrows the eyes it can give way to showing the wrinkle that these muscles create. Fortunately, BOTOX® injections are a simple remedy for this visual sign of aging.
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that wears off gradually. As our bodies metabolize the active ingredient it begins to lessen in strength. Some patients ask if your face will look the same after it wears off. The answer is yes! Your muscles will resume their regular strength as the BOTOX® wears off so you can rest assured you will look just like you did prior to BOTOX® and a better you while it’s active! FDA approved to last up to three months.
What BOTOX® Injections Can Correct
This treatment can correct various cosmetic and medical concerns. Cosmetically BOTOX® is FDA approved for forehead, glabella, and crows feet injections. Its other uses are a range of areas like an “orange peel” chin, which are the dimples that occur on the chin when you smile hard or purse your lips together. Medically it can treat hyperhydrosis – excessive sweating. We can also treat TMJ with this injectable, which is a common problem for many patients. By relaxing those muscles in the jaw you are able to chew, swallow, and function as normal. It also softens a very square jaw that many TMJ sufferers dislike.
