Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contraction of the underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have your worry lines, you don’t have to show them anymore.
Now you can prevent their formation with a form of Botulinum Toxin called “Botox”. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation uses Botox Cosmetic to improve the appearance of worry lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic blocks impulse from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Botox Cosmetic relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After the treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
ARE BOTOX TREATMENTS SAFE?
Botox Cosmetic has been used safely and effectively for over ten years to treat many ophthalmological and neurological disorders. Each year thousands of patients receive Botox Cosmetic treatments for a variety of conditions and it is quickly becoming a popular treatment for reversing the visible signs of aging. Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some cases, Botox Cosmetic can migrate and cause a temporary weakness of nearby muscles.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
Cosmetic denervation with Botox Cosmetic is a simple and safe procedure. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of Botox Cosmetic is injected, very precisely, into several locations on the face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used the pain associated with the treatment is minimal. Most clients compare the sensation to a bug bite.No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office. Some clients experience slight, temporary bruising at the treatment site. This can be covered with the make-up.
