Facial lines and wrinkles are inevitable parts of aging. As you get older, the overuse of certain facial muscles to communicate emotions may lead to the onset of permanent facial creases that make you look older, tired, or upset. While aging is inevitable, modern aesthetic medicine gives us the opportunity to reverse the signs of aging and reclaim youthful skin. MAEVA Aesthetics provides highly personalized anti-aging treatments that can suppress and relax lines and wrinkles, making your facial skin look smooth and youthful.
Prevent Lines & Wrinkles
What Causes Facial Wrinkles?
To understand how we relax facial wrinkles, you must understand the root cause of wrinkles. There are two types of wrinkles on the face — static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles and fine lines always stay on your face, regardless of whether you communicate expressions and emotions. But dynamic wrinkles only appear on your face when you’re actively communicating emotions, such as laughter and confusion.
When you contort your facial muscles to produce expressions, you develop facial wrinkles, such as the horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. When you’re young, these dynamic wrinkles only appear when you actively communicate emotions. But as you grow older, the muscles grow larger because of consistent use, and the associated facial creases remain on your face even at rest, essentially turning into static wrinkles.
Botox & Dysport for Wrinkles
Botox and Dysport are unique cosmetic injections that correct unwanted dynamic wrinkles, i.e., facial wrinkles caused by the overuse of facial muscles, such as the forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Botox and Dysport belong to a category of cosmetic injections known as neuromodulators or wrinkle relaxers. They’re made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin protein that can block communications between nerve endings and targeted muscles.
When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox and Dysport temporarily paralyze the facial muscles responsible for your wrinkles. The unwanted facial wrinkles will eventually reduce visibility and smoothen away, making your face look younger. The results appear gradually over 2 weeks, though you might start noticing improvements after 2 to 3 days. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you need additional treatments.
