Consult with an expert when considering this procedure. Botulinum toxin can be performed in an off-label use manner, and can be discussed more during your consultation.
Wrinkles and Lines
Let’s just call them facial lines for now.
Wrinkles are a result of a combination of loss of elastin (protein that allows skin to stretch), collagen (a structural protein of the skin), elasticity, moisture, and oils.
Botox can be used to address the facial lines.
The skin overlies deeper tissues that include the facial muscles. Every time you animate, or activate your facial muscles, the muscle contraction causes the skin to also move and fold. And every time the skin moves and folds, you see wrinkles and lines. But this also puts “mileage” on the skin and is also thought to lead to collagen loss.
You can appreciate the outlines of some of your facial muscles when you really try to activate these muscles, such as squinting and smiling.
Botox is therefore injected into the facial muscles that cause these lines. This temporarily paralyzes the muscles in order to give a more smooth appearance.
Consult with an expert when considering this procedure. Dr. Isaacs believes that a custom-tailored approach is appropriate to fit each individual’s needs. Every patient is different. You may want to animate and express yourself more to the world than another individual. He will listen to your needs and provide a treatment pattern that suits you.
