When you smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, and over time this can cause wrinkles and creases to appear. Years and years of blinking, squinting, and other unavoidable reflexes may lead to crow’s feet and also “jelly rolls” underneath the eyes.
Officially, these lines are known as orbicularis and can be noticeably minimized with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport. These products temporarily paralyze the muscles, forcing them to stay relaxed. The result? Fine lines disappear or appear smaller and less deep.
Great care is used to achieve a natural balance between smoothing the jelly roll lines, while retaining the ability to make natural facial expressions. People seldom want a face that appears “frozen” and expressionless (but if you do, you do you boo!). The goal is to minimize the lines, while allowing you to remain expressive. As long as you choose a qualified provider in Philadelphia, PA, the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be done quickly with natural-looking results. Maximum effect can usually be accomplished with one treatment.
For deeper / harder to treat wrinkles, some patients may achieve theie best results when BOTOX® Cosmetic is applied in conjunction with a filler, such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®. Of course, this depends on many factors, such as bone structure, muscle tone, skin texture and elasticity. This will be determined and reviewed with you at your consultation.
The location of the lines can also play a part in the final result. Lines located toward the outer (lateral) side of the lower eyelid tend to respond to treatment better than lines located toward the middle of the eyelid.
Because the skin around the eye area is very delicate, it is vital that you receive the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections from a provider who is very familiar with the anatomy and function of the muscles surrounding the eyes. The injectors at About Face Skin Care have performed thousands of successful treatments, and your face will be in excellent hands.
One of the wonderful things about BOTOX®Cosmetic is its temporary nature; you can always elect to start with a small dose and add more injections later to gain the desired effect. Conversely, if you don’t want to keep up with the treatments, the BOTOX® Cosmetic will gradually wear off.
