Most faces develop deep lines and wrinkles over time. Many of these wrinkles are caused by the underlying musculature of the face – especially those muscles we use most often. Crow’s feet, laugh lines, and other creases deepen over the years for this reason, and furrows in the forehead may appear as well. One of the simplest solutions available is also one of the easiest – cosmetic Botox injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that gently decreases muscular activity. This nonsurgical treatment can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines between your eyebrows, on your forehead, and around your eyes, lips, nose, and neck. Although the effect eventually eases, it is easy to reproduce on a regular basis, and the benefits associated with it can last as long as you would like the treatments to continue.
Understanding BOTOX® Treatment
Because the muscles are the culprit in many facial wrinkles, BOTOX® is carefully injected directly into the muscles. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create lines can vary greatly among individuals, so varying amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic may need to be injected.
I always take the time to carefully map your facial muscles to preserve full movement in select muscles while lessening movement in others, thereby creating a natural appearance. This approach also lets you preserve your facial expressions and mobility: the many sophisticated and tiny injectors I use for cosmetic BOTOX® wrinkle effacement do not limit your ability to communicate in any meaningful way.
After Your BOTOX® Therapy
Often the effect is astonishing. Forehead lines and crow’s feet are diminished or erased, and other facial wrinkles smooth out naturally. BOTOX® therapy is very safe, as the amounts injected for cosmetic use are too small for any ill effects. The entire treatment takes about ten minutes, and the slight redness or swelling that follows typically resolves in a matter of hours. Although I recommend against vigorous athletic activity immediately following your BOTOX® therapy, you can resume your regular life by the very next day.
If you are distressed about persistent wrinkles that have overtaken your life and preoccupied your thoughts, it is safe and easy to try BOTOX® treatment. Simply contact me today for an initial consultation, and we can begin the process of restoring your natural beauty right away.
