There are different lift procedures that are designed to get rid of excess skin on the face and other parts of the body. But if you are interested in reducing the wrinkles on your face, you may not feel quite ready to use a surgical procedure. BOTOX® at our office in the New Orleans area is a great option for non-surgical wrinkle reduction.
BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure that is designed to physically remove loose skin. It is not a laser treatment that is designed to tighten loose skin. It is a treatment that is injected into certain facial muscles. It relaxes those muscles so that they do not contract in the same way. Since the muscles are not contracting as much as they did before the treatment, it means that the skin on top of them can also relax. As a result, the skin is smooth and there are no wrinkles.
There are a wide variety of benefits that come from using BOTOX® to reduce wrinkles. For one thing, there are not the same risks involved as with surgical procedures. When you use surgery, there are risks that you must consider. You do not have to consider any of these things when it comes to getting injections of BOTOX®. With BOTOX®, you can go right back to work after the treatment. This is because little to no downtime is involved.
A lot of people in New Orleans decide to use BOTOX® as a treatment to reduce their wrinkles while they put off a surgical procedure. For example, there are individuals who are relatively young who have wrinkles. However, these individuals may not necessarily be good candidates for facelifts. They may want to wait a couple of years before they have one done. BOTOX® is a great solution to be used in the meantime.
Did you know that BOTOX® can even be used in order to help prevent wrinkles? Just think again about how dynamic wrinkles form on the face. The skin creases because of muscle contractions. When the muscles cannot contract in the same way, the skin will not crease. So, you are preventing dynamic wrinkles from forming in the first place.
