Valentine's Special

Developing wrinkles is an inevitable part of life since our skin produces less collagen and elastin as we age. Additionally, everyday movements like smiling, laughing, or frowning can worsen signs of aging and create fine lines known as dynamic wrinkles.

Although many people know injectables are an excellent option for reducing wrinkles, the best choice for minimizing dynamic wrinkles is BOTOX® cosmetic in Indiana. Botox binds to facial muscles and stops repetitive facial muscle contractions that cause etched lines. If you are interested in learning more about BOTOX® cosmetic injections, schedule a consultation with our plastic surgery practice.

How Do BOTOX® Injections Prevent and Improve Wrinkles?

Since BOTOX® aims to reduce or prevent dynamic wrinkles that form from movement, the injections work by limiting facial muscle movements. Specifically, BOTOX® injections contain an ingredient that reduces the signals sent between facial muscles, resulting in the skin moving less and becoming smoother.

Typical forms of wrinkles that BOTOX® injections reduce include forehead lines frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. In addition, the treatment could minimize the appearance of bunny lines and smoker’s lines around the lips.

However, since the injections use a small amount of neurotoxin to reduce the nerve signals, the treatment is not for severe aging signs. Instead, BOTOX® cosmetic injections provide the best results in the early stages of dynamic wrinkle development. The injection’s effects are temporary, typically lasting for three to four months and requiring additional treatments for continued enhancements. Our knowledgeable Indiana team could help someone decide whether BOTOX® cosmetic treatments are ideal for their desired results.

When to Consider BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments

Unlike the dermal fillers that improve more severe wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® cosmetic treatments are better suited for preventing and treating more mild aging signs. For instance, older individuals without significant skin laxity and volume loss may want to consider BOTOX® cosmetic treatments injections if dynamic wrinkles are a primary concern.

Alternatively, BOTOX® cosmetic injections are a popular choice for younger patients who want to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from forming on the face. A board-certified plastic surgeon could help both younger and older patients in Indiana decide whether BOTOX® cosmetic would align with their treatment goals.
