San Francisco residents tend to have high standards when it comes to skin treatments. In recent years, there has been a move away from cosmetic surgery towards less invasive anti-aging treatments and procedures. If you are dealing with wrinkles like those found between the eyebrows, on the forehead, or around the eyes (crow’s feet), you may benefit from a treatment with BOTOX®.
BOTOX® helps combat wrinkles by attaching itself to nerve endings. When this occurs, acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that stimulates muscle contractions, cannot be released. In other words, BOTOX® injections help to temporarily slow the activity of facial muscles that cause some forms of wrinkles.
The amazing popularity of BOTOX® is largely due to its ability to effectively and instantly minimize dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form when you make certain facial expressions, like when you frown. Other treatments have no effect on dynamic wrinkles because they cannot affect the muscles that cause these wrinkles to develop. And unlike many skin treatments, there is no set downtime associated with this type of treatment.
Eligibility for Treatment
BOTOX® treatment has been found to be safe and effective for most patients, particularly anyone looking to eliminate dynamic wrinkles. Younger patients tend to obtain the best results from the treatment. However, results vary from patient to patient.
Although the vast majority of people make good candidates for BOTOX® injections, the treatment is not for everyone. That’s one of the reasons why a consultation is so important.
BOTOX® injections are quick and simple. Right after your injections, you can resume virtually all of your normal activities. This makes the treatment a great option for those in San Francisco with busy schedules.
You should get the injections as needed for the best results. This ensures that you can maintain the results for as long as you are getting the injections. Follow-up treatments tend to take just minutes and can be easily incorporated into your daily schedule.
