An important part self-confidence is being happy with the way you look. The appearance of lines and wrinkles can have a negative effect on your self-image. At Rendon Center, we can help you turn back the clock and restore your smooth, wrinkle-free skin. A popular anti-wrinkle treatment we offer is Botox. It is used to soften or eliminate dynamic wrinkles.
What are dynamic wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles form when your face is animated. Frowning, squinting into the sun, and other facial expressions can result in the formation of wrinkles. When you are younger and your face is relaxed, these wrinkles disappear. Over time, as your skin loses elasticity, the wrinkles become more pronounced, even when your face is at rest. The most common dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, horizontal lines across the forehead, and frown lines between your brows.
During the treatment, your care provider at Rendon Center will carefully inject small amounts of Botox into precise locations along the muscles. The Botox helps to relax the muscle, erasing the wrinkle. Most patients see the full benefit of the treatment in three to seven days.
Although Botox can provide our patients with long-lasting results, they are not permanent. Each treatment is effective for about three to four months. Periodic touch-up appointments will be necessary to maintain the results.
The benefits of Botox
Botox is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. Patients can resume their regular routine after the procedure. The side effects are minimal and include minor bruising and swelling at the injection site. This can often be minimized with the use of a cold compress.
Botox is only effective in the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, but it can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers for overall aesthetic enhancement. Your care provider can create a custom treatment plan to help smooth away your lines and wrinkles.
