A dynamic wrinkle treatment for the people of Westlake Village is Botox
Feeling good about how you look is an important part of your self-confidence. The formation of lines and wrinkles can have a negative impact on your self-esteem. Westlake Village patients do not have to worry about their frown lines or crow’s feet, Botox can smooth away those lines and wrinkles.
Every time you frown or squint at the sun the muscle contraction, forms a wrinkle. When you are younger and relax your facial muscles the skin returns to a relaxed state and the wrinkle disappears. Over time, even when you are not forming a facial expression your muscles cannot completely relax, resulting in the formation of dynamic wrinkles.
How Botox works
Botox is an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles. It works by blocking the nerve from sending signals to the muscle. Once the nerve and muscle can no longer communicate, the muscle will begin to relax. While some effects of a Botox treatment may be noticeable immediately, it can take up to two weeks for the muscles to relax completely, eliminating your wrinkles.
Botox is a temporary treatment for dynamic wrinkles. One Botox treatment can give you wrinkle relief for up to four mounts. Your care provider will recommend periodic “touch-up” appointments to help you maintain your desired results.
The treatment process
Botox is minimally invasive and requires no down time. Appointments typically take less than 20 minutes, although the size of area being treated will affect the actual length of your treatment. You will be able to resume your normal daily activities after your appointment. The most common side effects from Botox are minor, and include swelling at the injection site and possible bruising. Both of these can be minimized with ice.
