While most people have great affection for their grandparents, there are very few people who would say that they would like to look like their grandparents. No one wants to deal with problems such as wrinkles and sagging skin. We will go out of our way to avoid these issues. Thankfully, we have a lot of options when it comes to staving off wrinkles. In fact, there are more options today than ever available to help people look their best for as long as possible. One of the quickest and easiest treatments available is BOTOX®.
Before you decide on the right treatment for you, you have to know exactly what it is that you would like to treat. You may know that you want to treat your wrinkles, but do you know if they are static wrinkles or dynamic wrinkles? This idea may be completely new to you. You may have always thought that all wrinkles were exactly the same. However, this is not true.
Static wrinkles form over time due to the loss of collagen and skin elasticity. They are there no matter what type of facial expression you may be making. Dynamic wrinkles, however, form with repeated facial expressions such as smiling, laughing and frowning. Those who still have high levels of collagen and elastin in their skin see their dynamic wrinkles disappear after their face goes back to a neutral expression. As the levels of these substances drop, however, lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines become etched into the skin.
If you are dealing with dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® is one of the simplest ways to get rid of them. It is a trusted treatment that has been approved by the FDA to relax the muscles responsible for forming these wrinkles and instantly take years off your appearance.
BOTOX® is so attractive to so many people because it’s quick and non-surgical. This purified protein works to relax the muscles in the treated areas, dissolving your dynamic wrinkles and preventing the formation of new ones.
While you love your grandparents for all their good qualities, you likely don’t want their wrinkles. BOTOX® can help. We are pleased to provide this popular injectable at the office of J. Anthony Stephens, MD. Contact our office in Baton Rouge to schedule your first appointment and find out if this treatment is right for you!
