BOTOX® is one of the most effective cosmetic treatments for reducing the appearance of expression lines. These dynamic wrinkles form when the facial skin is relaxed as muscles in the cheeks and around the mouth contract. Various treatment options include abrasive resurfacing, chemical peels, and even skin repositioning. However, many individuals are wary of these procedures and therefore seek a simpler solution. The benefits of BOTOX® are many and include smoother skin that appears more taut, a more even texture, and less shadowing caused by creases and folds in the skin.
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® is a muscle-relaxing agent. The procedure uses a purified protein solution. The nerves that control the facial muscles are no longer able to transmit signals, and the chemical messengers that prompt the muscles to contract become inoperative. The result is smoother skin and an absence of dynamic wrinkling.
Benefits Of BOTOX®
BOTOX® is considered a quick lunchtime procedure. You will begin to see a reduction in your dynamic wrinkles within a few days, and the results are quite long-lasting.
No surgery is involved, no plumping fillers are used, and no abrasive skin resurfacing is required. This makes BOTOX® a popular choice because the treatment is suitable for all skin types. Best of all, the muscles in the face become trained to stay relaxed, so subsequent injection treatments require the use of less and less of the solution.
The Ideal Candidate
Mature adults who are experiencing the appearance of smile lines and tiny, non-set wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and near the corners of the mouth are perfect candidates for BOTOX®. The only concern is the overall health of the individual and whether certain medications are being taken. A quick consultation with our dermatologist will determine whether the client is a suitable candidate for this popular cosmetic treatment.
BOTOX® is slowly flushed from the body with other waste products. There is usually no risk of side effects when administered in proper dosages.
