What would you say are the most obvious signs of aging? The very first thing that most people would say is wrinkles. When a person has wrinkles on their face, they look older. Years ago, there was very little that a person could do in order to prevent or treat their wrinkles. They just had to deal with the fact that they were getting older. Nowadays, you can choose from many different treatments to combat wrinkles. BOTOX® is one of the most popular. If you are seeking this treatment in West Palm Beach, you are headed down the right path to enjoying a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Everyone knows about wrinkles, but not everyone knows that there are different types. Some wrinkles form due to the loss of facial volume and the changes that happen in the skin as a person gets older. While dermal fillers can help restore this lost volume, BOTOX® is best suited to treating dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and forehead lines.
If you are unfamiliar with dynamic wrinkles, they are actually quite easy to spot. Look at yourself in the mirror or someone you know. Notice how different wrinkles appear as you or your friend makes different facial expressions. You will see how lines form at the outer corners of the eye every time you smile or squint. When you make an inquisitive or angry expression, you will see how the skin on your forehead bunches up. While babies and young children even have these wrinkles form when they change their facial expression, their skin is so healthy and young that it goes back to being smooth and soft when they are no longer frowning, smiling or making any kind of facial expression. This is not the case as you get older.
Since older individuals have made these facial expressions thousands of times throughout their lives and the condition of their skin has changed, these wrinkles have begun to etch themselves into their faces. BOTOX® is a perfect solution for these wrinkles. It essentially works by relaxing the muscles in the face that cause the skin to crease.
