If smile lines and crow’s feet are getting you down, consider BOTOX® treatments in Knoxville for smoothing the facial skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. Our clients include mature adults who choose this cosmetic procedure to help delay the time when a more aggressive skin treatment becomes necessary. Even before we hit age 40, our facial features begin to suffer because of a lack of collagen in the skin and an inability for the skin to retain moisture. The dynamic wrinkles that result cannot be dealt with using creams and moisturizers, but BOTOX® can make these annoying lines all but disappear.
Candidates for BOTOX® Treatments
The ideal candidate will be experiencing thin wrinkles near the corners of the mouth, near the eyes, and along the nose bridge, as well as on the forehead. Quite often, these wrinkles are dynamic in nature, meaning they appear only when the upper-level facial muscles are contracted.
BOTOX® is a viable consideration for the treatment of these problems. Many of our clients in Knoxville simply don’t feel they are ready for skin ablation procedures or more invasive surgical procedures. Their skin is generally healthy except for those worry lines and crow’s feet. This is the time to consider BOTOX®, a simple treatment that yields long-lasting results without the need for surgery or abrasive resurfacing.
How It Works
BOTOX® is injected directly into certain facial muscles that stretch or relax the skin. The solution settles into the muscle tissue and blocks nerve signal transmission. We know exactly how much of the solution to inject and where to inject it. We don’t want the muscles to become totally inactive, but we do want them to stay partially relaxed so that the dynamic wrinkles don’t appear when our client smiles, frowns, or pouts.
During the consultation in Knoxville, we’ll observe the client making pouting and frowning expressions. This allows us to judge the muscle size and strength, and this determines how much BOTOX® fluid to use.
After a few days, the muscles no longer fully contract, and the skin remains smooth and taut. The effect lasts for multiple months, after which we will repeat the injection procedure. BOTOX® doesn’t treat the skin directly, so there’s no worry about certain skin textures and skin tones.
If you’re wary of surgical procedures and don’t want to undergo harsh treatments, consider BOTOX® treatments at Knox Wellness Experience instead. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in Knoxville!
