Getting Rid Of Wrinkles - Natural Looking Botox Injections In Melville Long Island
Botulism Toxin Type A (commonly referred to as “botox”) are wrinkle relaxers that are injectable substances that work to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. When these muscles are relaxed, facial lines can soften or disappear, creating a refreshed or more youthful appearance.
Wrinkles Come in Two Different Types – Static and Dynamic
Static wrinkles occur from collagen breakdown due to aging and sun exposure and are present when your face is immobile. These wrinkles are typically treated with dermal fillers or other non-invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing.
Dynamic wrinkles are those that occur from muscle movement such as frowning, scowling, lip pursing, laughing and squinting. These are the wrinkles that are treated with wrinkle relaxers. To date, the wrinkle relaxers FDA approved to treat these symptoms are Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau.
All of these wrinkle relaxing injectable products work very similarly and are structured chemically almost identically. All have excellent safety profiles and have been used on millions of patients for years. Click here to see actual Huntington Long Island patients of Lynnette Allen, NP-C.
