San Diego, CA is a dynamic city. It is known for setting trends in fashion, art, and music. Most of the people who live in San Diego care about their appearance. They dress nice, they take care of themselves, and they want to present the best version of themselves possible. This is one of the reasons why it can be challenging for people in the area to come face-to-face with some of the unfortunate side effects of the aging process. One of the more pronounced negative side effects of the aging process is dynamic wrinkles. Thankfully, dynamic wrinkles can be treated with BOTOX®.
Why Do Dynamic Wrinkles Form?
Everyone is getting older. No matter how much we hate to admit it, it’s just a fact of life. Aging leads to the development of dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles often develop in the parts of your face that move when you express emotions.
Dynamic wrinkles are different from static wrinkles. Static wrinkles develop because you’ve lost volume as a result of the breakdown of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other structures within your face. Static wrinkles are there whether you make a facial movement or not, whereas dynamic wrinkles only appear as a result of the tension of your facial muscles.
Some common examples of dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet, the lines that develop around your mouth, and the lines that develop on your forehead and brow. BOTOX® has the power to relax facial muscles, thereby minimizing or completely removing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. This treatment is popular because it is a quick and non-surgical way for you to restore your youthful looks.
What Makes BOTOX® So Powerful?
BOTOX® has long been approved by the FDA. It is a powerful tool that can be used in strategic locations around the face to temporarily block the signals from nerves to the muscles that move when you express emotion. The solution basically causes your muscles to relax, and the fine lines and wrinkles on your face also relax as a result.
Some people worry that BOTOX® is going to prevent them from making facial movements. Nothing could be farther from the truth. BOTOX® does not leave you with a frozen face. To the contrary, it temporarily relaxes certain muscles in the face and prevents these muscles from contracting as forcefully as they normally would. You can still make all of the facial movements that you did before. The only difference is the skin in the treated area remains smooth.
