How Botox® Can Help You Look Younger

It’s the most common cosmetic procedure done in America today, with over 7 million treatments administered every year. Botox® Cosmetic injections are perhaps so popular because of the results, the lack of downtime, and the almost complete absence of side effects when delivered by trained medical aesthetics practitioners. 

Dr. Carrie Morris and the team at Radiance Wellness MediSpa are ready to help you recapture the smooth, relaxed look of a younger self. As Botox specialists, they work with you to plan a treatment regimen that’s realistic and effective, and with four locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, there’s a location convenient for you.  

Lines created by muscles

Many of the lines, creases, and wrinkles associated with aging are caused by passive effects. Skin loses elasticity and moisture as you get older, and your surface skin shows more of the flaws present in its middle layers. This increased tendency to reveal subdermal contours is a big reason those typical signs of aging develop. 

Not all lines and wrinkles are passive, though. Frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet are three locations where your skin starts to show active contours caused by contractions of facial expression muscles. As you get older, muscle and skin conditions combine to create active wrinkles. 

The Botox solution

The botulinum type A neurotoxin is found in nature. It’s a chemical blocker that stops a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which your body uses to drive muscle contraction.

Botox makes use of botulinum type A in minute dilutions so this blocking action affects only the area immediately surrounding the injection site temporarily. The effect lasts for months after each injection.

Botox was first used clinically as a way to control spasming eye muscles that caused vision issues. Medical applications continue to emerge today, with Botox treatments for issues ranging from overactive bladder to migraines. It’s been approved for cosmetic use since 2002. 

Botox treatment areas

A few key areas on your face respond well to Botox injections. Frown lines above and between your eyes and forehead lines higher up form when the expression muscles start to stay partly contracted, giving you a tense, worried appearance around the clock, despite whatever your true mood might be.

Crow’s feet beside your eyes might be contracting due to happier reasons, as these muscles might remain contracted after more positive expressions. Nonetheless, when these lines are still there after you smile, you may be bothered by the aging effect that remains. 

Localized Botox injections directly into the responsible muscles allow these muscles to relax. The overlying skin smooths, and you see effects within a day or two of treatment, with the effects lasting up to four months. 

You can enlist Botox to help you look younger. Every patient has their own response to Botox injections, so you could see shorter or longer effective results. The best way to develop your action plan is to discuss your aesthetic goals with a specialist.
