Cosmetic treatments for facial wrinkles deliver varying results depending on the type of procedure administered. Botox® is one of the most popular treatments for dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and near the corners of the mouth. This treatment is suitable for all skin types. The appearance of lines and wrinkles can be significantly minimized by a special fluid that relaxes the facial muscles. We encourage all who experience troublesome dynamic wrinkles to consider this simple, effective treatment.
Candidates for Botox® Injections
The ideal candidate is someone who is experiencing visual signs of aging in the facial area. The skin becomes less supple as we age, primarily due to the decrease in the amount of collagen produced by the body.
Dynamic wrinkles are those that form when the facial skin is stretched or relaxed due to muscle contraction. Adults who notice that these small wrinkles are forming when they smile or frown are the best candidates for Botox®.
How Botox® Works
The solution injected beneath the skin contains a purified protein solution. Health concerns are a non-issue because the solution does not harm the nerves or any tissue surrounding it.
Before we administer Botox®, we consult with the client and examine the facial features closely. The client makes several facial expressions so that we can clearly see where the dynamic wrinkles become apparent.
The procedure can be done during your lunch break in the comfort of our office in Manasquan. There may be a small amount of reddening at the injection sites, but this clears up in an hour or two.
After treatment the full results won’t be apparent. The results take around three to seven days to be seen. The individual can still smile and frown, but the muscles no longer fully contract. The dynamic wrinkles don’t appear, and without the appearance of annoying wrinkles and smile lines, the facial features are more youthful-looking.
Botox® injections are effective for about six months. After the solution is flushed from the body, repeat injections will be necessary. However, these treatments use less and less of the solution because the facial muscles are slowly becoming trained to stay relaxed.
