botox in your 40s orlando

By the time you hit the big 4-0, you may be noticing more than a few lines around your forehead and eyes. In addition to the repetitive motions that have etched those creases into your face, thinning skin often begins around this age to make those line even more prominent. The good news is you don’t have to accept those aging signs by your 40th birthday. Botox treatment is effective for both men and women in their 40s that want to stop and even turn back time.

The Dynamic Wrinkle Factor

Lines and creases that appear around your forehead, brows and eyes are usually the result of making certain facial expressions over and over again. These types of wrinkles only appear when you make those expressions and are known as dynamic wrinkles. Unfortunately, by the time you hit 40, the lines may be present on your face all the time, transforming into what is known as static wrinkles.

Here what Perth Plastic Surgery doctors explains about these line and what they include:

  • Horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows (known as frown lines or the 11s)
  • Fine lines extending from the outer corners of the eyes (known as crow’s feet)

You might also notice that your brow line begins to droop a bit, making you look perpetually tired or grumpy. This problem can also sometimes be addressed with Botox, in addition to the medication’s ability to smooth away the wrinkles listed above.

How Botox Works

Botox is particularly good for dynamic wrinkles because it affects the muscles that go into making the expressions that create the problem. The Botox medication contains trace amounts of the botulinum toxin. When it is injected directly into the facial muscles, it relaxes them so they can no longer cause the wrinkles to form. At the same time, your ability to make facial expressions is unhindered.

Botox is injected using very small needles, so the procedure is nearly painless. Most treatments just take a few minutes to complete. While Botox is considered a safe procedure for most patients, it is important to choose a provider that is experienced with Botox to ensure the best possible results.

Mixing it Up

While 40-somethings can see excellent results with Botox injections, changes to the skin by this age may be too great for Botox alone to meet your aesthetic goals. In addition to the appearance of wrinkles in the upper part of the face, you may notice significant creases forming around the nose, mouth and chin. In addition, sun damage may have left visible vessels and brown spots behind, while collagen loss could be creating hollowing in the mid-face.

The good news is Botox can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to further enhance your results and address these additional concerns. At Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center, we offer the following treatment options with or without Botox injections:
