BOTOX® COSMETIC/DYSPORT, WRINKLE REDUCTION TREATMENT AT DERMCARE, MISSISSAUGA
Age affects skin in many ways, but wrinkles are probably the most noticeable. Often, the first visible sign of aging is crow’s feet or other fine lines in the eye area. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these lines result from rigid muscles beneath the skin. At DermCare in Mississauga, we offer an injectable treatment that softens overstimulated muscles. It can be used alone, or in conjunction with procedures such as dermal filler treatment for comprehensive wrinkle reduction.
UNDERSTANDING DYNAMIC WRINKLES
Aging is a multi-faceted process, and wrinkles appear for many different reasons. Fat loss, stretching of skin, and decreased elasticity cause drooping, sagging wrinkles. The skin begins to look like clothing that is a size too large. However, some wrinkles, especially around the eyes, are different. The skin develops creases and fine lines, which tend to lessen or disappear when the face is relaxed. These are called dynamic wrinkles, and they are caused by rigid muscles beneath the skin.
The key to smoothing dynamic wrinkles is softening the underlying muscle. After years of repetitive movement, the muscles have become over stimulated. It is as if the nerves are “telling” muscles to contract, even when they aren’t needed. We use an injectable medication that slows the overactive nerve signals, allowing the muscle to relax naturally.
- With proper dosage, this procedure does not make your face look frozen. You can smile and frown naturally, and you can relax naturally.
- You will probably begin seeing improvement within days. Full results develop within a couple of weeks.
- Results last for several months, and can be extended with a simple touch-up.
- There is little to no downtime.
