Our Milwaukee clients who come to us with concerns about dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and smile lines are thrilled to learn that they have a non-surgical alternative treatment. We’re talking about BOTOX®, and it could be perfect for you!
BOTOX® treatments don’t involve skin ablation, abrasive resurfacing, or chemical alteration of the skin tissues. Instead, the treatment is designed to relax certain facial muscles. As a result, the skin remains smooth, and dynamic wrinkles become far less noticeable.
Crow’s Feet Visibility
Mature adults in Milwaukee begin to notice these fine lines and wrinkles near the corners of the mouth, near the eyes, and on the forehead. They generally aren’t all that visible until certain facial expressions are produced. When we smile or frown, the muscles near the skin contract. The skin gets pulled or pinched, and this is how we are able to produce squints, lip pursing, and cheek movements.
However, there’s a downside. This pinching and pulling allows dynamic wrinkles to become visible. These are non-set wrinkles that form because the skin is getting thinner and contains less moisture. A decrease in collagen production as we age means even more prominent wrinkling when we make facial expressions.
How BOTOX® Can Help
This treatment involves the skillful injection of a liquid solution into the upper-level facial muscles. The mixture is basically a purified protein solution that relaxes the facial muscles that are responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles. After it’s injected into the muscle tissue, the muscles remain in a somewhat relaxed state. You can still make smiling and frowning expressions, but the upper-level muscles, the ones that control skin movements, can no longer fully contract. The crow’s feet that otherwise would become visible simply don’t appear. This is good news for those who are tired of looking old whenever they smile or frown.
A Closer Look at the Treatment
After we consult with the client, we can suggest BOTOX® treatments if we determine that muscle contractions are the cause of visible smile lines and crow’s feet. The actual injection procedure is performed in the comfort of our office without the need for surgery.
