BOTOX® is an injectable solution that can treat dynamic wrinkles. In some cases, it can completely eliminate them. In other cases, it can reduce wrinkles. One of the factors that will play a role in how much your dynamic wrinkles are reduced with BOTOX® in McAllen is your age and the severity of your dynamic wrinkles. For example, if you are in your early 30’s or so and you are just starting to see dynamic wrinkles appear, it is very likely that this treatment will completely eliminate them. If you are in your 50’s and you have deeper dynamic wrinkles, this treatment can definitely work for you, but you may not end up with completely smooth skin after the treatment.
Why does BOTOX® completely eliminate wrinkles for some individuals and then only reduce them for others? You need to understand why dynamic wrinkles appear in order to understand the answer to that question. Everyone has dynamic wrinkles, no matter how old they are. Think about young children and even teenagers when they are smiling. Many of them have dynamic wrinkles on their face, like at the corners of their eyes. However, when they are no longer smiling or making facial expressions, the skin goes back to being smooth.
As a person gets older and the collagen and elastin in their face break down and as they lose facial volume, their skin begins to crease deeper and deeper with each facial expression that is being made. So, basically, dynamic wrinkles get worse as a person ages. When they are caught early, they are a lot easier to eliminate.
This does not mean that a person in McAllen will never have dynamic wrinkles on their face. But it will definitely postpone the time that a person may need a more invasive procedure in order to help them look their best.
BOTOX® can definitely help to reduce wrinkles on your face. Since your muscles are going to be much more relaxed after the treatment, the skin that lays on top of them will be more relaxed as well. This is going to leave you with much smoother skin. You don’t have to worry about not being able to make facial expressions, though. You will still be able to smile, grimace, and make all other normal facial expressions.
