Does Botox Eventually Make Your Wrinkles Worse?

Does Botox Make Wrinkles WorseBotox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. In 2012 alone, 6.1 million Botox treatments were performed on patients, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. So why is Botox so popular? There’s one simple answer: because it has proven to be effective and safe.

Thousands of patients have taken years off of their facial appearance every year with Botox.  Just one treatment can dramatically reduce dynamic wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes, in between your eyes or around your lips for up to six months, and sometimes even longer.  But what happens after those six months are over?

Does Botox Eventually Make Your Wrinkles Worse?

When some people see their wrinkles form again after the rejuvenating effects of Botox wear off, they assume that the treatment made their wrinkles worse. This isn’t true at all. In fact, regular Botox use can actually retrain certain muscles to move less, leading to smoother skin with less Botox over time.

After Botox wears off, your face returns to its natural state. The dynamic wrinkles that your Botox kept hidden show up again. You will not have any new lines caused by Botox. To better understand why Botox cannot cause wrinkle development, let’s take a look at what causes dynamic wrinkles and what exactly Botox does.

What Causes Dynamic Wrinkles?

Botox can improve the appearance of dynamic lines, or wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement. Every time your muscle contracts, your skin bunches together and lines are formed between the bulk of muscle, according to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.

After repeating an action for years and years, permanent wrinkles begin to form. The most common locations where dynamic wrinkles develop are around your eyes (crow’s feet), between your eyebrows and on your forehead.

How Does Botox Work?

When you come in for your treatment, your face will receive a very small injection of Botox with a tiny micro-needle. The injected Botox blocks impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles that are related to expression lines. In other words, Botox relaxes your muscles so that they don’t contract, leaving you with smooth skin.

After your treatment is over, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract normally, allowing you to make facial expressions that look no different than before you received Botox. Your face should look naturally smoother and more youthful.

Since Botox actually prevents your muscles from contracting, it is impossible for them to worsen your dynamic wrinkles, or those caused by aging or sun damage. Instead, they stop regular movement from occurring, helping to prevent dynamic wrinkles from worsening and getting deeper.

If you’re looking to get rid of dynamic wrinkles that make you look older than you are, Botox is one of the most effective ways to do it. Feel free to contact us at any time to dramatically improve the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. We here at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery are here to help you look your best.


Beauty Tips & Trends for Winter 2015

Beauty Tips & Trends for Winter 2015We love the start of a new year because it gives us a chance to transform our appearance with new makeup and styles. With the new year coming and winter season here, it’s time to start thinking about your new winter look.

At Dr. Chernoff’s office, we are here to help you look your best this season with beauty tips and trends for winter. It’s time to get creative.

Show Off Your Natural Hair

When you let your hair down this season, keep it casual. Naturally wavy and tousled hair is the way to go. Proudly show everyone the natural beauty of your locks. If your hair is a little too out of control to wear naturally, you can still rock beautiful disheveled hair. Total beauty has a great guide to giving your hair a tousled, wavy look.

Lots of Liner & Lash

This season is all about the eyes. Make them stand out for a bold new look. Try experimenting with smoky cat eyes for a night on the town. Or, smudge your khol-rimmed eyes for an edgier and grungier look. This smoldering makeup will be sure to catch people’s eyes. If you want a subtler appearance this winter, draw a thick layer of liner under your eye and apply mascara. You will still accentuate your eyes without looking too edgy. Extra long false lashes can give you a doll-like prettiness for a special night out.

Neutral Makeup for a Bare-Faced Look

Since eyes should be the focus this winter, use neutral makeup on the rest of your face. Wear nude lipstick and pigment-rich concealer for a natural and flawless look. To make your skin look as smooth as possible, make sure to cover up any pimples and blemishes and use warm peach cream blushes for a natural flush.

Make Those Eyes Rich With Eye Shadow

Your eyes can reflect the richness of winter with eye shadow. Customize your look with blues, teals, purples, sea greens and ruby reds. These colors will help to highlight your eyes. You can even experiment with metallic eye shadow, another fun trend this season. Don’t be afraid to change up your look with these colors. Winter is the perfect time to try something new.

Work That Updo

Updos were all the rage on the runway this season, and the trend should hold strong through the winter season. Play around with various updos, putting your hair in ballerina buns, casual twists, intricate braids and disheveled ponytails. For an everyday look, a tousled twist is perfect. For those fancy nights,  some time to carefully braid your hair. Take a look at this braided hairstyle Pinterest board for inspiration!

We hope these winter beauty trends and ideas help you to rock a great new look this year. Do you have any beauty tips that didn’t make our list? Feel free to share them with us. We would love to hear!
