A lot of people hear the words “plastic surgery” and they immediately think of BOTOX®. This treatment, however, is not a surgery. In fact it is minimally-invasive to the point where you don’t have to clear your schedule just to receive injections; you could hypothetically schedule it on your lunch break. Enjoy a younger-looking you today!
BOTOX® is a purified protein solution that is used to relax the facial muscle to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. We all constantly make facial expressions, and these expressions cause dynamic wrinkles to form. Laugh lines and crow’s feet are good examples of this. When the wrinkles become deep enough they are visible even when our face is naturally relaxed, which is when these treatments come into play.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescriptive medicine that is injected into the facial muscles to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. It can be used to reduce the appearance of age, or it can be used preventatively on younger men and women who want to preserve their appearance. Virtually anyone between the ages of 18 and 65 can benefit from BOTOX® injections.
What to Expect
At your consultation with us we will help you determine the best treatment for your needs. We offer other treatments and procedures that can help reduce the appearance of age as well. The injections themselves don’t take very much time, depending on how many areas are being treated. BOTOX® offers real, noticeable results with no surgery and no recovery time.
The stereotype is that women receive BOTOX®, but this is not necessarily the case. 6% of total BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are performed on males, and it is actually the most popular minimally-invasive procedure for males to reduce the appearance of age. This is just another one of the many reasons why BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment, and why it has been chosen by millions of patients and their doctors.
