BOTOX® has gained popularity throughout the world because of its powerful ability to temporarily address dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that appear on the face when you express emotion. For example, when you smile, you may see crow’s feet form along the sides of your eyes. Or when you get upset and you frown, you may see wrinkles that develop on your forehead. These dynamic wrinkles happen because as we age, our skin begins to lose some of its volume. As a result, our facial muscles are working closer to our skin. When they contract, they have a marked effect on our skin.
Dr. Rauscher offers BOTOX® for both men and women to address dynamic wrinkles without surgical intervention.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® works by interrupting the signals sent by facial nerves to facial muscles. Contrary to common myths, this treatment will not “freeze” or face or inhibit your facial expressions when administered by a trained medical professional like Dr. Rauscher. When BOTOX® is applied by a skilled professional, it will leave your face looking refreshed. The only difference is the dynamic wrinkles will not be visible on your face. As a result, you will look a lot younger.
After reading about all of the positives that come from using BOTOX® and after looking at some of the dynamic wrinkles you have on your face in the mirror, you may be wondering if you are a good candidate. There are many factors to consider, such as whether your dynamic wrinkles would respond to this treatment.
A second important requirement is that you are in good health. BOTOX® is a minimally-invasive cosmetic medical procedure. Medical procedures of any sort have the best outcome when the patient is healthy. Being healthy includes not having any skin disorders or skin infections in the area you are looking to have treated.
Also, since BOTOX® is designed to affect the nerves and the muscles in your face, you may not be a good candidate if you have a disease like muscular sclerosis or any other infirmity that causes muscle weakness or affects the nerve’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body. If this is true in your case, talk to our medical team and they will be happy to explain other options that may work well for you.
Patients who are the happiest with their BOTOX® treatments are those who walk into the treatment procedure with an open mind and with a realistic view of what BOTOX® can do for them. BOTOX® is not going to make you look 20 again. However, it can address dynamic wrinkles and help you look younger.
