Are wrinkles all you see, the creases of repeated muscle contractions from concentrating and squinting over the years? Not only that, cellular changes can occur over time, such as the reduction of collagen. Aging skin naturally starts to show wrinkles and fine lines, especially in the delicate skin around the eyes. Crow’s feet and frown lines begin to appear, typically in the late 20s and early 30s.
Bothered by those concentration wrinkles? That deep vertical crease between your eyebrows? The horizontal wrinkles along your forehead? The arch of wrinkles on either side of your eyes? If these facial changes with age are beginning or have taken aesthetic residence then maybe a Botox® Cosmetic injection is the skin care treatment for you.
Bringing out a finer quality of your skin, not just a science but a fine art, customized medical skin care treatments help you look and feel your best. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, and almost painless, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been the most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure.
WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?
Botox®, derived from the Botulinum toxin, is a powerful neurotoxin, but is effective and safe in very small doses to your nervous system. The administration of a relaxing solution into the wrinkle’s muscle with a painless injection relaxes the pull of the muscle on the skin, blocking the signals sent by nerves that tell it to contract thus smoothing the area with the wrinkles. Botox® is a natural purified protein and is FDA-approved.
Botox® Cosmetic injections smooth and balance asymmetrical facial features including:
- Lifting of the brow line
- Squint, nasal scrunch or bunny lines
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet and lines around the eyes
- Frown lines or 11’s lines
- Horizontal lines on the neck
Patients typically seeking injectables and non-surgical treatment for wrinkles understand that the results are temporary. Virtually anyone over the age of 18 who is frustrated with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines benefit from the cosmetic convenience of BOTOX® treatments.
Beneficial for both men and women, the versatile formula proves safe on all skin types and textures. The smoothing effect, when correctly administered, provides a younger and more vital result, rather than having an unpleasant, worked-on look.
DOES A BOTOX® INJECTION HURT?
Ouch-Scale Rating? An intramuscular injection is a technique used to deliver a medication deep into the muscles. Injected into the facial muscle with a very tiny needle (just like the needles used for acupuncture), the pain it causes during injection is very little.
Results typically last for a few months before the BOTOX® breaks down and maintenance injections are needed to maintain the natural, vibrant-looking skin.
