When you are young and your skin looks fresh and healthy, looking at yourself in the mirror is an awesome thing. You are happy with the way that you look, and you are happy with the condition of your skin. Unfortunately, as a person gets older, things start to change. Smooth and healthy skin slowly morphs into skin that is old and full of wrinkles. In times past, the only options that were available for addressing unwanted wrinkling was surgery or ineffective topical creams. Now, San Francisco residents have the option of reducing unwanted lines with BOTOX Cosmetic.
This is a neural modulator. What this term means is that it modulates or controls the way that facial muscle nerves receive or send signals. When BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into an area, the nerves in that area are basically told to stop sending the signals that lead to muscle contractions. This means that while BOTOX Cosmetic is active, your facial muscles will not be making the movements that cause dynamic wrinkles.
This does not mean that BOTOX Cosmetic is going to give you a frozen face. To the contrary, people who have these treatments are able to express a wide range of emotions. What BOTOX Cosmetic does is control the intensity or the severity of muscle contractions.
Controlling muscle contractions is the key to eliminating dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are formed when your facial muscles contract, thereby folding your skin. Over time, the contracting motion of your facial muscles will cause your skin to fold to the point where the creases become permanent. The dynamic wrinkles will be visible on your face even when you are not making a facial expression.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a minimally-invasive treatment. It is administered via an injection. Most people are able to have the treatments without needing any form of anesthesia. The product produces little to no side effects. The vast majority of people are able to leave our office and go back to their everyday activities.
