Wrinkles, Wrinkles, Go Away!

Here’s the bad news first… no matter how well you care for your skin, you WILL eventually get wrinkles.

As we age and because of our genetics, wrinkles develop on the forehead and between the eyes (glabella region), and crow’s feet appear beside the outer portion of the eyes. This wrinkling happens because of the strong muscular actions that occur thousands and thousands of times during our lifetime. The result is wrinkles in cosmetically sensitive areas.

Now, the good news. Several great treatments are available to help those stubborn places that don’t seem to improve with expensive creams and anti-aging products, and they have minimal downtime. Neuromodulators, such as Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®, are commonly used to attack wrinkles in the comfort of an office with little downtime. 
Although Botox procedures greatly improve many problem areas, the forehead and eye areas are the best places for treatment. People often worry about looking “frozen” after having Botox. But when done correctly, these treatments will actually SOFTEN your appearance!

Neuromodulators, such as Botox, do a great job of treating “dynamic” wrinkles, which appear when you animate or move muscles in the forehead, squint or scowl. In addition, these treatments often soften “static” wrinkles that appear when not moving your facial muscles. Another great benefit — your boss won’t know if you’re mad at him or her because you won’t be able to scowl, making treatment a plus for your career!
