Botox for Smile Lines
A smile is a great gift of nature, and is a beautiful expression of happiness. However, repetitive motion of smiling may cause the formation of fine lines around the eyes and mouth over a period of time. Botox treatment at a certified medical spa is an effective way to address smile lines and make the skin look smoother and more youthful.
Smile lines may be more prominent in some people because the facial shape and the size of the facial muscles involved in smiling will vary from one individual to another. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides Botox injectable aesthetic treatments. The med spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.
Botox treatment to remove smile lines is based on botulinum toxin, which is a powerful biological agent. Wrong location or wrong quantity of treatment or poor administering of the injections can result in serious side effects. Therefore, it is critical to choose a medical spa with a proven and established reputation in procedures such as Botox.
Smile lines are caused by a muscle caused orbicularis oculi. This is a circular muscle around the eye, which also performs the function of shutting the eyes tight. The treatment in precise quantity must be injected into this muscle carefully. Few small injections of Botox may be needed on each side. An expert will be able to perform the injections very quickly and without causing any significant pain or discomfort to the patient.
How does it Work?
Smiling activity can cause the skin to crease repeatedly in the same place because of the wearing down of the underlying tissue in that area. The overactive muscles causing the smile lines will be relaxed instantly when Botox is administered through injections. This will ensure that the skin will not crinkle up in the area around the eyes.
When the Botox medication goes into the muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from being transmitted to that area. This enables the underlying muscle become relaxed. The skin overlying the muscle will naturally become smoother and the wrinkles in the skin will slowly soften and disappear.
The FDA had originally approved Botox cosmetic treatment for the reduction of frown lines between the brows. In 2013, Botox additionally received approval for the reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. However, a majority of Botox providers have been using the injectable treatment for smile line reduction with excellent results.
The FDA has issued a warning on the Botox label that the treatment must only be received by a qualified provider. No adverse impact of Botox has been reported in cases where the treatment is administered by an expert.
Botox cosmetic reduction for smile lines is a safe and predictable treatment. When performed by an expert, the treatment will usually cause minimal or no discomfort. Very little or no downtime is involved. The total treatment time required will be less than 30 minutes in most cases.
