Charlotte, NC is a place where people go to see things and to be seen. There are certain times of the year when it is one of the most happening spots in the entire United States. It is understandable that when people in this vibrant city start to notice lines and wrinkles on their face, they want to do something about it. Fortunately, BOTOX® is a tool that has helped residents of Charlotte, NC and elsewhere successfully fight back against dynamic wrinkles. We are talking about the wrinkles that appear on your face when you make some sort of facial expression. They are dynamic in that they appear as a result of facial movement.
Since dynamic wrinkles are caused by the contraction of the muscles underneath your skin, they can best be treated by affecting the way the muscles underneath your skin work. BOTOX® does this by relaxing certain facial muscles. But what does this mean? First of all, what it does not mean is that it is going to leave you with a frozen or expressionless face. What BOTOX® does do is minimize the intensity of your facial contractions. So, when you smile, your smile is still going to look natural. However, since your muscles are relaxed, dynamic wrinkles are not going to be telegraphed through your skin. This results in a younger, more refreshed appearance.
One of the reasons why men and women in the area enjoy BOTOX® treatments is because they are effective yet natural-looking. You will not see the results immediately after your treatment session. However, in the days following your treatment, you’re going to start to notice your dynamic wrinkles disappear. This helps the results to look natural.
When BOTOX® injections are administered properly, they’re not going to make you look like you’ve had work done. To the contrary, they’re going to make you look like you’re well-rested, they’re going to make you look like you’re more refreshed and they’re going to make you look like the best version of yourself possible. The results typically last for four months or so, and the treatments can be safely repeated at our office multiple times per year for ongoing benefits.
