Botox, one of the most popular and well-know offerings in the field of aesthetics
Botox, an injectable treatment, is used to address some of the most commonly seen signs of aging in the face such as frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet, neck wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose.
Botox is an injectable drug that’s actually harnessed from a type of bacterial toxin (called botulin). The way it works is by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. That’s why in addition to aesthetic uses, Botox also can be used to address issues including lazy-eye, severe sweating, muscle pain, chronic migraines, TMJ and spastic muscle issues such as blepharospasm (blinking uncontrollably).
Back to Botox’s aesthetic uses, when Zinnia’s skilled providers administer injections of Botox, it is primarily to address what are known as “dynamic wrinkles”. As the name suggests, such wrinkles appear in the action of certain facial muscles, such as when we smile. Our muscles contract when we smile, and the wrinkles appear as a result, and when those same muscle relax, these so-called “dynamic wrinkles” disappear. As mentioned, Botox temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, creating a more youthful appearance as the dynamic wrinkles are not as pronounced as a result of Botox’s powerful effect. Additionally, as you probably guessed, if their are “dynamic” wrinkles, there most likely are wrinkles that exist without the animation of our facial muscles, and you’d be correct! These are know as “static” wrinkles. While Botox can help address these by softening their appearance, we at Zinnia leverage dermal fillers such as Juvederm to correct the appearance of these “static” wrinkles.
Although the notion of the Botox being harnessed from a bacterial toxin to paralyze facial muscles may sound a bit extreme on its surface, the treatment is quite safe, and is actually the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed today. Indeed, the reason Botox is so prevalent is because of the low risk associated with it, and its extremely impressive aesthetic results. Zinnia’s providers are highly trained and experienced in the administration of Botox, and will walk you through the process step by step.
