There’s a simple skin-smoothing treatment that reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, and it doesn’t involve resurfacing, chemical peeling, or microneedling. It’s BOTOX®, and it’s the most popular wrinkle-reduction fix on the planet. Our Austin clients enjoy less prominent crow’s feet and other expression lines after getting BOTOX®. The treatment takes just minutes to perform, and it’s repeatable at regular intervals.
What sets this treatment apart from the rest is the manner in which the wrinkle lines are faded from view. These lines develop over the years from the constant tugging and pinching of the skin via muscle contractions. When the muscles are forced to stay in a non-contracted state, the lines simply don’t appear. This treatment has several key benefits you’ll really enjoy.
Wrinkle Etchings Over Time
When you were younger, you had smooth skin above and around your eyes, on your forehead, above your nose bridge, and around the corners of your mouth. As you got older, the lines began to etch and branch out, the result being crow’s feet and marionette lines. If only those muscles that lie just beneath the skin wouldn’t contract so fully, this wouldn’t be a problem. That’s the secret behind BOTOX®.
Consultation and Treatment
We examine your facial skin during a consultation and ask you to perform some pouting, narrowing of your eyes, and other expressions that cause these muscles to contract and pinch the skin. After watching this, we’ll know just where to inject the BOTOX® fluid and how much of it to use.
The fluid is injected directly into the upper-level muscles that lie beneath the skin in the trouble spots where crow’s feet are forming. The purified protein solution blocks nerve signals to some degree, and the muscles cannot fully contract. You’ll still be able to smile and frown as before, but those lines and creases no long become visible.
The effect is slow in developing, and it takes about three days before you really begin to enjoy the results. After about four months, the results will fade, and you can come in for a repeat series of injections. During this time, the affected muscles become used to being in a non-contracted state, so we’ll likely use less of the fluid each subsequent treatment.
