|Smile lines, character lines, worry lines,
and crow's feet; the more you show your emotions
the deeper these wrinkles will be. In the medical
community these are called "Dynamic wrinkles"
and are caused by contractions of the small facial
muscles just under the skin. Now a procedure called
cosmetic denervation, which uses an already approved
and proven drug, these dynamic lines and wrinkles
can be remarkably smoothed and softened. This
procedure uses BOTOX® Cosmetic and has shown remarkable
results in the areas of the forehead and around
Tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic into the small facial
muscles related to dynamic wrinkles work to
block impulses from the nerves which cause
these muscles to contract. These muscles now
remain more relaxed and the skin overlying
these muscles remains unwrinkled and smooth.
Untreated muscles continue to contract as
before which leaves normal facial expressions
BOTOX® Cosmetic is quickly gaining popularity for reversing
visible signs of aging. However BOTOX® injections have
been FDA approved and have been used in treating
ophthalmological and neurological conditions
for over ten years.
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is very simple and safe.
A series of small injections are made using
a tiny micro-needle and very small amounts
of liquid. These injections are very precisely
located into the nerves that cause character
lines. No anesthetic or other pain medication
is necessary since the procedure causes very
little pain. Some compare the injections to
a small bug bite. You may feel free to schedule
your BOTOX® treatment for lunch hour or after
work since driving after the procedure is
not a problem.
