About Wrinkle Treatments
When you look in the mirror and see wrinkles, they may all look alike, but there are distinct differences that drive wrinkle treatment options. Dynamic wrinkles are unique in that they form as a result of muscle contractions in your face, such as when you lift your eyebrows to express surprise or contract the muscles between your eyes when you frown. In younger women, these facial expressions do not cause wrinkles because the skin has resilience. As we age, though, we have less collagen and elastin, so the skin tends to crease.
How Does Botox® Help with Dynamic Wrinkles?
Botox® was the first injectable treatment that was introduced specifically for dynamic wrinkles. Today, it is the top injectable cosmetic treatment in the world. Botox® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that you use in the forehead and eye area. This allows the skin to relax, and the result is a reduction in dynamic wrinkles.
What Are the Benefits of Wrinkle Treatment with Botox®?
- 10 to 30-minute treatment
- No downtime
- Long-lasting results
- No scars or surgery
- Helps with wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes
What Should I Expect During My Wrinkle Treatment with Botox®?
Dr. Friedman and his providers determine the injection points that will best affect the muscles that are causing your wrinkles. Botox® is administered with a very fine needle, and you may feel a slight prick on your skin as the needle is inserted. Several injections are needed to produce an even and natural reduction in the wrinkles.
What Should I Expect After My Wrinkle Treatment with Botox®?
After your wrinkle treatment with Botox®, you will see some improvement, but full results can take up to seven days. Results from wrinkle treatment with Botox® may last four to six months. We recommend follow-up treatments about every four months.
Is Botox® Wrinkle Treatment Right for Me?
Millions of people around the world rely on Botox®, and this includes younger and older patients. It is considered safe for most people, yet there are some contraindications. We recommend that you meet with Dr. Friedman and our team for a consultation to find out if wrinkle treatment with Botox® is your best option.
How Much Does Wrinkle Treatment with Botox® Cost?
The cost of wrinkle treatment with Botox® is based on several factors that vary by patient, and we can discuss pricing at the time of your consultation.
