Came in to find a solution for the deep wrinkles I’ve had on my forehead for almost a decade. Annie at Skin Perfect Brothers recommended a combination of fillers and botox, and after two sessions the wrinkles are gone! S.L. | Los Angeles, CA
As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As your skin becomes less elastic, those moderate to severe frown lines remain—even when your muscles are not contracting. Wrinkles are created from different circumstances. If you want to be able to reduce, eliminate, or prevent Wrinkles from forming, You must equip yourself with the knowledge of what makes Wrinkles appear on your pretty faces in the first place. Wrinkles around the mouth (also called perioral wrinkles) can be caused by age, genetics, smoking, and sun exposure. These wrinkles, which are mostly due to a loss of collagen and elasticity, can be treated in several different ways.
The picture below describes the injectable areas for Botox. It typically takes only 5 minutes to perform a few injections that can result in a 90% improvement of wrinkles that lasts roughly 4-6 months! You may see a few mosquito-bite sized bumps for a few hours after treatment, but you are free to return to normal activity immediately.
1. Sun Damage
Being out in the Sun Too Long, without Sun Block will cause your skin to begin creasing up over a period of time. Tanning is also not very good for the skin.
Facial Movement will also cause wrinkles. Whenever you laugh, smile, squint, frown, etc, your face begins to create creases in the skin that over time, will turn into wrinkles. One good way to prevent that from happening is to use Botox in order to Relax the muscles in your forehead and near the eyes. This will eliminate the occurrence of crows feet, forehead wrinkles, and the 11’s in between your eyebrows.
3. Dead Skin
Another Huge Contributor to the formation of wrinkles is pile up and accumulation of dead skin. Make sure to wash your face regularly and chemical peels or microdermabrasion facial done ever so often, to reduce the amount of dead skin that stays on your face.
4. Free Radical Damage
This is when Molecules steal electrons from your body. You must be sure to eat healthy, take your vitamins and antioxidants in order to prevent those Molecules from causing wrinkles on your pretty face.
You know what this is. I don’t think that I need to explain what negative impact that this has for your overall health, especially with the creation of wrinkles. Make sure that you take some time for yourself, to just relax and pamper yourself. Go out and enjoy life. Treat yourself good every now and then; whatever that might be for you. Reduction of Stress = Prevention of Wrinkles.
Your 1′s, 11′s, or 111′s are those moderate to severe vertical frown lines between your brows. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the muscle activity that causes those persistent 1′s, 11′s, or 111′s to form. This reduced muscle activity helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
At Skin Perfect Brothers, we only use FDA-approved Botox or Xeomin (upon request) and our injectors have more than 12 years of experience. At your consultation, you will learn that each area requires approximately 15-20 units (range depending on your muscle tension/sizes) with results lasting 4-6 months. BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet lines in adults. The procedure is very quick, usually lasting no more than 10 minutes! No anesthetic or numbing cream is required as the injection points are small with minimal discomfort. Results generally take a few days to a few weeks to become apparent; but when they are in full effect, your skin will look visibly smoother, younger, and natural.
