BOTOX® is a cosmetic treatment used most often to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest. It is sometimes used elsewhere on the body for other treatments like arthritis and excessive sweating as well.
All cosmetic and medical uses for BOTOX® have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration. It is a very safe product to use, and many men and women find that it improves them physically and emotionally. There are several cosmetic benefits of BOTOX®.
The Key Cosmetic Benefits of BOTOX®
First, BOTOX® is used for treating the lines and wrinkles that show up with age, and it does a great job. After your initial treatment, you will notice smoother, less wrinkly skin and a brighter complexion.
Next, BOTOX® is also a brow lifter. With age comes sagging and drooping skin. It’s a side effect of gravity over time, but it’s not very attractive. In some people, even the slightest droop of the brow can make them appear angry, sad, or tired even when they probably aren’t any of those things. BOTOX® can come to the rescue and lift that brow so that it doesn’t sag.
BOTOX® can also help with excessive sweating, a cosmetic issue that many men and women face. Some people simply sweat more than others do. The Federal Drug Administration has approved BOTOX® as a medical treatment for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis.
Many people think that getting a BOTOX® treatment means going under the knife. This is not at all true. BOTOX® is a non-invasive procedure, which means that you will simply be sitting in a chair wide-awake while it’s being performed. You’ll be able to walk out and go home right after the procedure is completed.
In fact, you can be in and out of our office in a matter of minutes. The process of administering treatment is very simple. A syringe filled with BOTOX® is injected into the areas that your doctor has deemed key for treating your wrinkles. This may include multiple areas depending on the issues you are trying to correct. The syringe penetrates the muscles and relaxes them, which produces a smoothing effect on the skin.
Finally, BOTOX® does not make you look frozen or constantly surprised. To the contrary, it’s a very natural treatment. People will notice that you will look naturally younger and fresher, but won’t guess you’ve had “work done.”
