Expression lines, like crow’s feet, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles may become noticeable in your 30s and deepen over time as collagen production naturally slows. No one escapes the effects of time, and we know how frustrating it can be to look in the mirror and see a reflection of someone older, someone more tired, than you feel.
If you’re looking for a treatment to restore youthful and smooth skin, trust our neuromodulator injectable treatments. It is our most popular cosmetic treatment and the natural outcomes are loved by thousands of our patients who want to look like the best version of themselves. Call our skin specialists at 610.525.7800.
For the sake of simplicity, we are going to refer to all neuromodulators on this page as “Botox,” but know that we are referring to all members of this wrinkle-reducing family. We love Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Botox® all the same! Check out the section at the bottom of this page to find out more on this topic.
Other patients choose neuromodulators when their appearance does not match how they feel, or genetic and environmental factors have created deeper lines than they might have expected at their age. The best time to get treated is when you feel ready to enjoy the cosmetic benefits of this effective wrinkle treatment.
The active ingredient in Botox is classified as a neuromodulator; it temporarily prevents the contraction of muscles that create lines and wrinkles. The chemicals in your body that naturally control this function are blocked, so the muscle and nerve cannot communicate. The resulting effect is smooth, firm skin that looks youthful but doesn’t create the “frozen” or over-treated look that patients associate with too much injectable treatment.
While Botox® relaxes the muscle, you will still be able to display facial expressions. Some patients avoid treatment because they’re afraid they will look stiff or unnatural; however, when done RIGHT, it prevents formation of deep skin creases and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by active facial expression without eliminating your beautiful smile, the sparkle in your eye, or the effect of your scowl.
