Did your mom ever tell you to “stop making faces” or your “face would freeze up”? Well, mom was kinda right! Crows feet at the corners of your eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines between your eyebrows are all caused by facial expressions. Over time, as your skin naturally begins to become more lax due to loss of collagen and elastin, these “dynamic” wrinkles can turn into permanent creases in your skin.
Bakersfield injectables aesthetic expert Joseph H. Chang, M.D. has over 20 years of experience using FDA-approved treatments like Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau™, to relax specific facial muscles that contribute to lines every time they contract. These quick and relatively pain free treatments allow your wrinkles to fade within just a few days, leaving smoother and more youthful-looking skin without affecting your ability to make natural facial expressions, which is an important part of what keeps you looking like you.
Most commonly, wrinkle relaxers like Botox® Cosmetic are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (“crows feet” or “laugh lines”), on the forehead, and between the eyebrows (“frown lines” or “elevens”). They can also be used to reduce wrinkles/lines around the lips, to relax pronounced neck muscles, and even to lift jowls. Those suffering from migraines and excessive sweating under the arms can also benefit from treatment with Botox®. Each wrinkle relaxer product has its own advantages and Dr. Chang will help determine which treatment is right for you.
When properly performed by an experienced aesthetic injector, most patients can expect to enjoy a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines for up 4 months. Regular repeat treatments are recommended to help the wrinkle-causing muscles stay relaxed longer to prolong your Botox® cosmetic results. Dr. Chang at Modern Aesthetic Institute has extensive experience achieving subtle yet stunning, long-lasting results for his Bakersfield patients.
At Modern Aesthetic Institute in Bakersfield, Dr. Joseph Chang achieves superior facial rejuvenation results by utilizing wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, or both. While wrinkle relaxers primarily target “dynamic” lines caused by facial expressions and their associated muscle movements, dermal fillers are used to reduce “passive” lines, which are creases in the skin not related to expressions. Dermal fillers can also restore volume lost due to the natural, age-related decrease in collagen and elastin, helping you regain a more youthful, supple appearance. Many patients benefit greatly from using a combination of both treatments to obtain optimal results.
When considering an aesthetic treatment with Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, or Jeuveau™, it’s important to find an experienced physician with a keen eye for superior results.
