There is a reason why so many Longmont residents are turning to BOTOX® Cosmetic to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The younger you look, the better you feel. Have you ever had someone guess your age and they guessed that you were a lot younger than what you really are? Maybe you went to the liquor store and the clerk carded you. It felt good, didn’t it? Conversely, have you ever had someone guess your age and they guessed that you were a lot older than what you really are? For most people, that feels terrible.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an amazing cosmetic treatment that is specifically designed to either completely remove or minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles. People often confuse this treatment with dermal fillers. And while BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can be used together in many situations, BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a dermal filler. Dermal fillers are designed to get rid of wrinkles caused by a loss of facial volume. BOTOX® Cosmetic, on the other hand, is designed to get rid of dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that are caused by the movements of your muscles underneath your skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by actually addressing the way that the muscles underneath your skin work. It temporarily relaxes these muscles. So when you make facial expressions, these expressive muscles do not contract as forcefully. This is key when it comes to getting rid of dynamic wrinkles.
Think about it like this. The older you get, the thinner your skin gets. So the more your facial muscles move, the more the skin over these muscles fold and unfold. Eventually, the muscle movement is going to etch lines into your face. You can think of it as folding a piece of paper over and over again. BOTOX® Cosmetic stops this folding of your facial skin. As a result, your facial skin becomes smoother and the lines and wrinkles become less visible.
What makes these treatments so awesome is that they are able to produce results in a natural way. While most people do not want dynamic wrinkles, they also do not want those around them to know that they have had work done. Most people in Longmont want to look refreshed, but they don’t want to look like they’ve had a cosmetic procedure done. This is what BOTOX® Cosmetic offers.
