Botox® Treatment Defined
Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular temporary wrinkle removal techniques available for anyone from 18-65 years of age. A Botox® Cosmetic procedure is actually the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Though it doesn't sound very pleasant, the procedure is a great way to soften or erase the wrinkles, expression lines (smile, frown), and fine lines that can accelerate the appearance of aging.
It works by relaxing the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles such as frown lines between the eyebrows and crows feet (fine wrinkles around the eyes). Over time these wrinkles will become permanent even when you are not frowning. You will be delighted to see how these wrinkles will smooth out over a few days and restore your face to a more youthful and relaxed look. Botox® will dramatically improve (and often remove) horizontal forehead creases, scowl lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and vertical wrinkles of your upper lip.
Take a look at men and women who've had Botox® Cosmetic treatments, and see for yourself! One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 6 months. Results may vary.
Botox and Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, are due to repetitive facial expressions. Weakening the muscles responsible for these facial expressions can dramatically improve these wrinkles. With Botox®, these muscles can be weakened without detracting from your facial expressiveness.
Botox and Safety
Although it is technically a toxin, Botox® has been used safely by ophthalmologists for over 10 years and has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990's, with no serious side effects documented in the hands of competent physicians. We've never had a single complication with Botox. Rest assured that the professionalism you expect and safety you need.
Prospective patients that are looking to relieve sagging skin are strongly encouraged to consider Suture Suspension minimally-invasive lifting, as it will provide results better than botox that will last significantly longer.
