As a person gets older, their face begins to produce visible signs of aging. Other factors can make a person look older than they really are. Some of these things would include environmental factors, like too much sun exposure, stress and worries. All of these things produce fine lines and wrinkles, adding years to a person’s appearance. Fortunately, there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that are available to help a person turn back the clock and restore their youthful appearance.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available is BOTOX® . This is an effective remedy that helps to reduce lines and wrinkles that come as a result of aging, stress and environmental factors. BOTOX® has been used since 2002 and is approved by the FDA.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is derived from a purified protein solution. The treatment is injected into muscles on the face. When certain muscles on the face contract, they can cause the skin on top of them to wrinkle. These are dynamic wrinkles. They produce the lines that are at the corner of the eyes, around the mouth and between the brows.
When BOTOX® is injected into these muscles, the muscles relax, leaving the skin on top completely smooth. BOTOX® has proven to be an outstanding treatment for not only cosmetic purposes, but also for medical purposes. It has been shown to relieve eye muscle disorders, migraines and is used in dentistry.
Qualifying for BOTOX® Treatment
BOTOX® has been used on many individuals in a safe way. For the most part, it is only used on individuals who are between 18 and 65 years old. A medical professional may determine that it is right in certain circumstances for individuals who are younger or older than that.
Anyone who is suffering from crow’s feet or wrinkles around the eyes and mouth is a potential candidate for BOTOX®. Speaking with our medical professional is the best way to find out if you have wrinkles that can be treated with BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is a non-invasive treatment and requires no recovery time. Most sessions are less than 30 minutes and a person can return to normal activities. Most people are able to enjoy immediate results. For some, full results are seen after just a few days of treatment.
BOTOX® has proven time and again that it is effective at helping individuals to turn back the clock and see a young face in the mirror looking back at them. It helps them to regain their self-confidence and allows them to accept new challenges in life.
