Botox Injections Can Fade the Appearance of Dynamic Wrinkles

With each squint, frown, and everything in between, your face is pulling, scrunching, and crinkling the skin every which way. These repeated muscle contractions eventually etch lines and wrinkles into the skin’s surface. These are known as dynamic wrinkles and include crow’s feet and frown lines between the brows. Injectable botulinum toxin treatments (or neuromodulators) continue to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the country, and can help men and women reverse signs of aging to restore a younger, revitalized appearance.

Dr. Zuliani believes “the best injectable is the least detectable.” As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Zuliani has the expertise and artistry patients look for when it comes to their injectable treatments. He listens carefully to each patient’s unique goals and carefully analyzes his or her skin to design a customized treatment plan for achieving a naturally youthful result–never overdone and no frozen look.

What Can BOTOX® Treat?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved for use on three areas of the face: the forehead, the area around the eyes, and the area near the mouth. This means that BOTOX® can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines and wrinkles, smile lines, and the other facial wrinkles that increase in severity as you get older. Although BOTOX® does have a numbing effect, most natural movement is retained; in the hands of a professional, the results will look subtle, natural, and smooth. In the past, many patients were wary of a “frozen” look from over-injecting BOTOX®. Today, experienced and knowledgeable injectors have a greater understanding of how much product to inject and where, so the results are natural-looking.

Each BOTOX® injection is used on an entire facial region. Your specialist will help you determine which areas will benefit the most from a BOTOX® treatment and how many injections you might need.

Dr. Zuliani offers Botox® to help patients reduce the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines)
  • Neck bands
  • Forehead lines

Dr. Zuliani will recommend the right injectable treatment for you based on your unique situation.

What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medicine that is injected into facial muscles to stop the repetitive movements that cause wrinkles. BOTOX® is most often used on muscles in the forehead, near the eyes, and around the mouth. Once injected, BOTOX® numbs the muscles for several months, reducing contractions and letting the overlaying skin repair and relax.

 

BOTOX® treatments take effect quickly. You'll see early results within two days after you receive your injection, and you'll see the full results about a month later. The effects of BOTOX® last for around four months on severe lines. Once the BOTOX® wears off, most lines and wrinkles will reappear unless further treatment is applied.

How Do Botox Injections Work?

Over the course of time, repeated muscle contractions and facial movements can cause the formation of wrinkles and fine lines between the eyebrows. This can cause individuals to look constantly tired or worn out, and can even make you look older than you really are.

Dysport® and Botox® are non-surgical treatments that will soften and smooth moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead as well as crows feet around the eyes.  We can also tighten the loose and crepey skin on the eyelids, cheeks and neck utilizing our innovative Instatox™ method and can create an amazing jawline with our Skin Boutique favorite – the Nefertiti Neck Lift.  Downturned or gummy smiles, bunny lines, brow lifts, pebbly chins, vertical lip lines and bruxism /teeth grinding can also be addressed with Dysport® and BOTOX®. We also utilize these treatments in other areas of the body, such as underarms and palms of hands can also be treated to reduce sweating.

Botox was FDA approved for anti-aging purposes in 2002. Toxic if given in its pure form or in larger amounts, Botox used in cosmetic applications are much safer.
