The human face is a very complicated marvel of design. It allows us to express emotion, and it goes a long way in defining who and what we are to others and to ourselves. For this reason, when we start to age, we notice the change. We notice that we no longer appear to be the person we were a few years ago. Our friends and family also notice the change. And even though aging is considered natural, it is still something that people will comment on.
Most people do not like the effects that aging has on their face. They are eager to take whatever steps they can to reduce the speed at which they age. If possible, they are eager to reverse the negative effects that aging has had on their appearance.
This desire to maintain a youthful appearance underscores why so many media outlets like NewBeauty.com and Cosmopolitan.com are constantly writing articles about products like BOTOX®. BOTOX® is a product that is designed to address dynamic wrinkles. Most people are not familiar with the term dynamic wrinkles. However, many have heard of the term crow’s feet.
Crow’s feet are the wrinkles that develop on the side of a person’s eyes when they smile, squint or make other facial movements. As we age, these wrinkles become more pronounced. Since crow’s feet typically only show themselves when you are making some form of a facial gesture, they are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. They are not always present on your face; they only show up as a result of muscle movement underneath the skin.
BOTOX® is helpful when it comes to dealing with this form of dynamic wrinkle. When BOTOX® is injected into the area around your eyes, it disrupts the signal between your nervous system and the muscles in your face. So when you smile, for example, the muscles around your eyes that would cause you to otherwise have crow’s feet stay relaxed.
Some worry that BOTOX® will leave them unable to express emotion. That just won’t happen. That is not how BOTOX® is designed. What it will do is allow you to have a free range of movement on your face, only minus the dynamic wrinkles that make you look older than you really are.
Just think about popular celebrities like Jenny McCarthy and Courteney Cox, who have both openly admitted to using BOTOX®. These actresses are required to make facial expressions as a part of their jobs, so you can be sure that these injections will not leave you with a frozen appearance. McCarthy has even been quoted saying, “I am team BOTOX®.”
