BOTOX® Treatments at Garza Plastic Surgery
If you are looking to smooth the look of wrinkles with BOTOX® in Nashville, TN, you are not alone. The truth is that throughout history, people have striven to improve their appearance, maintain a vibrant look, and keep their face looking as young as possible. For the most part, people have been forced to rely on topical treatments. Topical treatments are great at masking the appearance of wrinkles. However, they cannot do anything to truly treat the source of wrinkles. This is because the source of wrinkles is deep down underneath the skin.
For example, if a person has dynamic wrinkles, their wrinkling is due to the movement of the facial muscles underneath their skin. As the muscles move, the skin also moves at the same time. As a person gets older and their skin gets thinner, it starts to lose its ability to bounce back after repeated movements. This is the main culprit behind dynamic wrinkles.
Good examples of dynamic wrinkles are crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other wrinkles you might see around your face when you make facial expressions. Dermal fillers cannot reverse dynamic wrinkles. The product that has been proven time and time again to be effective at addressing dynamic wrinkles is BOTOX®.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® works because it gets to the root of your dynamic wrinkles. The injectable can temporarily inhibit the signals that come from your facial nerves to your facial muscles. As a result, facial muscles connected to facial expressions do not contract as harshly as they did before treatment. This, in turn, minimizes the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
What to Expect
BOTOX® is a pretty straightforward treatment. Since it is non-surgical, it does not require a lot of the pre-operative care you might need if you had a surgical procedure to address your wrinkles. You should also be at least 18 years old before you start receiving BOTOX® injections.
BOTOX® injections cause minimal, if any, discomfort. However, we can discuss topical numbing options with you during your consultation if desired.
Once the treatment is done, you’re able to go back to your everyday activities. It’s recommended that you not lie down for a couple of hours after the treatment. Our specialist may also recommend some minor facial exercises. It will take around four or five days for your results to show. Afterward, you can expect your results to last for up to six months.
