Common wrinkle treatments in Dallas include topical medications such as antioxidants, alpha hydroxy acids and vitamin A acid, as well as filler injections, surgical procedures and the ever popular BOTOX®. Although wrinkles are said to be a sign of maturity, numerous individuals are unhappy with the wrinkles caused by the aging process. Aging has a negative connotation in modern society, but everyone’s skin ages. The process is enhanced by excessive exposure to the sun, often resulting in rough, dry skin, liver spots, skin growths, sagging skin, fine lines, poor pigmentation and wrinkles. The majority of wrinkles formed by aging appear in areas where exposure to the sun was the most frequent. This includes the neck, face, top of the forearms and the back of the hands.
There are two basic categories of wrinkles: the deep furrows caused by muscle contractions and fine surface lines. Some of the deeper furrows are not related to the aging process, but have an anatomical nature. Anatomical wrinkles are just as unwanted as wrinkles caused by aging. The two basic ways to help eliminate these wrinkles are through prevention and treatment. Topical wrinkle treatments are generally more effective when used for fine lines. More invasive techniques are usually necessary for wrinkles and deep creases. This includes plastic surgery, local muscle relaxation and filler injections.
Wrinkle Treatments in Dallas
BOTOX® injections are one of the best treatments available for wrinkles. They are most commonly used for frown lines, crow’s feet (the lines around the eyes), squint lines, nasal scrunch lines and horizontal forehead lines. This substance is often used to treat other areas of the face. The areas treated are dependent on the way your facial expressions and muscles work. If your outer eyebrow is sagging, this treatment could provide the ideal lift. The procedure is also effective for smoothing out other areas. It is very important that these injections are given by an experienced professional to help ensure optimal results. This treatment has become increasingly popular as time has passed.
BOTOX® is a liquid injected into the face for the treatment of horizontal wrinkles in your forehead, smile, squint and frown lines and other wrinkles that have been caused by the making of repetitive facial expressions. Your underlying muscles are relaxed by this procedure. This effectively decreases the deepness of the lines. This procedure has been used for wrinkle treatments as well as cosmetic and medical purposes for more than two decades. Thousands of individuals have been satisfied with the results of this procedure. The substance is produced in a laboratory using a specific ingredient. Extremely strict conditions have been established for the purification of this substance. The liquid has an impressive product safety record going back twenty years.
The injection is given in the small facial muscles. The substance does not go anywhere else and will not travel throughout your body. During a period of multiple months, the substance will naturally and gradually start to wear off. There are several companies currently producing different forms of this substance. The most effective and safest is still the original form with the trademark name. However, we are happy to offer Dysport® and XEOMIN® at our office as well. The majority of individuals find that the results of their BOTOX® injections last for multiple months. Most of these people are so happy with the results, they receive multiple treatments during the first year. After this period, maintenance injections are generally give two to three times each year; however, it all depends on the unique case.
Once enough time has passed and the muscles have remained relaxed, less maintenance is necessary to maintain this relaxation. There is no specific way to predict the response because every person is a unique individual. Some people start to notice the effects in 72 hours. Other people do not see a difference for as long as seven days. In some cases, the individual is asked to return after completing their first treatment to determine their response. Sometimes, only a partial response is achieved during the first set of injections. This is normal, and it may take more than one treatment before complete muscle relaxation is achieved. The injection is given in the comfort of our office, and our team will make sure to do all that we can to provide a comfortable treatment experience.
