How Dynamic Wrinkles Appear

Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, develop due to repetitive muscle contractions during facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and squinting. Over time, these muscle movements cause the skin to crease, creating fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Schalit offers neuromodulators like Botox to relax the muscles responsible for these expressions and smooth out dynamic wrinkles, helping you achieve a youthful appearance.

About Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators are a class of cosmetic injectables capable of temporarily paralyzing targeted muscles. Botox and Dysport are well-known examples of neurotoxins. These substances are derived from botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When used in cosmetic applications, they are administered in small, controlled doses to target specific facial muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles.

Neuromodulators in Daytona Beach block the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that signals muscles to contract. By temporarily paralyzing or relaxing the muscles, these substances effectively reduce muscle activity and prevent the formation of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin in the treated areas. The effects typically last for several months, after which the treatment can be repeated.
