It isn’t always necessary to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to eliminate or minimize the appearance of wrinkles across the visage. Certain types of wrinkles can be effectively addressed via strategic injections of the BOTOX® solution. BOTOX® is an FDA-approved purified protein solution that’s capable of smoothing fine lines around the mouth, across the brow and around the eyes. These treatments are short, safe and hassle-free. There’s no incisions or recovery time.
Why Choose BOTOX®?
With an invasive facelift procedure, patients have to mentally prepare themselves for a long-term recovery. This means dealing with downtime and limiting or even missing out on certain activities. With BOTOX®, you can deal with certain types of wrinkles without resulting to surgery and without dealing with days, weeks or months of downtime.
A Simple Procedure
There are multiple reasons why BOTOX® is so popular. The injections usually take just minutes to perform. There’s no special preparation for these procedures, and there’s no special aftercare. In fact, as soon as the injections are complete, most people immediately return to work or their regular activities. This is an extremely convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
The first wrinkles to appear on the visage are often dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that are easiest to see whenever facial movements are being made. Whether frowning, smiling, laughing or making any other facial expressions, the underlying expressive muscles must engage. These muscles can begin retaining tension over time that will ultimately manifest at the surface of the skin as noticeable fine lines and wrinkles.
When BOTOX® is skillfully injected into the affected areas, nerve signals to the expressive muscles are affected, tension is released and the surface skin is effectively smoothed out. The client can still make normal facial expressions. The only difference is that the skin in the treated area remains smooth.
