When you look at an older individual, what is it about their appearance that causes them to look old? The vast majority of people would say that it is wrinkles. Wrinkles definitely cause a person to look old. If you would like to reduce the wrinkles on your face, we invite you to learn how you can do this with Botox® here in Winnipeg.
The first thing that you likely want to understand is how Botox® can reduce some of the common signs of aging. In order to understand this, you need to understand why certain wrinkles are forming, particularly on your face, as you have gotten older. Botox® is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. So you need to understand why dynamic wrinkles are on your face. Dynamic wrinkles are different than static wrinkles. For some individuals, wrinkles are just wrinkles. However, there are two different types, and each one needs its own particular treatment.
Dynamic wrinkles form because your skin gets thinner as you get older, so the muscles that are under your skin become more noticeable and leave etches on the skin when they contract. When you are younger, you make expressions all of the time that may crease your skin. However, because your skin is full of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial substances, it springs back to being smooth and soft when you are no longer making facial expressions. However, now that your skin has changed and now that you have made the same facial expressions thousands and thousands of times, there are lines etched into your face.
Botox® helps this problem because it allows those muscles to relax a bit. They do not contract as tightly as they did before the treatment. Our highly-trained medical staff knows just where to inject the Botox® and how much of the product to inject. You will be able to smile and make other expressions, yet certain muscles are going to be relaxed so that your dynamic wrinkles aren’t as noticeable.
This is a safe treatment. It has been used in the United States, Canada, Europe, and many other places for years. Additionally, it has helped individuals in Winnipeg and elsewhere who are experiencing a wide range of problems as a result of their dynamic wrinkles.
