Our weather in Tampa can really wreak havoc on your facial skin. You may not be experiencing deep folds and brittle appearance of the epidermis, but it’s likely you’re now putting up with expression lines such as crow’s feet and thin wrinkles near the mouth and eyes. These dynamic wrinkles are the result of years of skin pinching via muscle contraction. Aging skin wrinkles more easily and can show line etching that appears whenever you frown, widen your eyes, or chew your food. The simple remedy for these annoying wrinkles is BOTOX®.
We are your Tampa metro area specialists in the area of wrinkle reduction, and we will be happy to discuss all of your treatment options during a consultation. We often recommend BOTOX® as the preferred treatment for crow’s feet and marionette lines. If you’re not sure about how this treatment works, you’ll find the following information quite helpful.
Skin becomes more wrinkled as we age. It loses some of its ability to hold moisture, and it also contains fewer proteins than it did when we were younger. Environmental factors such as sun exposure speed up the aging process.
Just because you’re battling the appearance of dynamic wrinkles doesn’t mean you’ve decided to undergo something aggressive such as a facelift or deep chemical peel. In fact, you’re looking for something simpler to get you through the next decade or so. Relaxing the upper-level facial muscles and reducing the degree of skin pinching may be all the treatment you need.
Performing BOTOX® Treatments
We choose injection sites based on our observations of your facial skin as you perform a series of expressions such as smiling, frowning, chewing, narrowing your eyes, and furrowing your brows. We’ll inject the fluid directly into the muscles that are causing the skin to pull or pinch.
After about three days, you’ll find that the thin expression lines are no longer prominent no matter what expression you make. You look as young as you feel whenever you smile or pout. This gives your confidence and self-esteem a tremendous boost.
Best of all, the entire BOTOX® treatment takes just minutes. Subsequent treatments may require the use of less and less of the injectable fluid because your facial muscles are actually being trained to stay in a more or less relaxed state.
