These days, there are few reasons why you have to live with wrinkles on your skin. From topical serums and creams to surgeries, such as facelifts, there are many cosmetic treatments for these aesthetic concerns. However, one of the most popular options for many people is Botox.
Botox is incredibly popular mainly because it works so well and is easy for most patients to receive. It does not require invasive surgery, yet it provides far better results than are common with topical lotions. This is because it works beneath the surface of the skin in the tiny muscles of the face where wrinkles on the skin are formed by tiny facial movements.
These wrinkles are called expression lines, and they are some of the earliest signs of aging on the skin. These dynamic wrinkles change and deepen as you smile, frown, squint or make any other facial movement. The longer you make these expressions over time, the more these wrinkles will etch themselves into your skin. Once they are fully formed, they become static wrinkles that appear even when your skin is at rest, and they become much more difficult to remove from your skin.
This is why it is important to use Botox as soon as you notice these expression lines forming. In fact, some of our clients use Botox before they notice lines and wrinkles because they know that early use of this treatment may prevent many of the most common signs of skin aging. Of course, this is a temporary solution, and it must be readministered every three to four months, or you will run the risk of allowing your skin to return to its previous level of wrinkles. If you do stop using Botox, your skin will not look more aged than when you began, but it will not look any more youthful.
Botox is certainly one of the easiest and most effective ways to eliminate unwanted wrinkles. Your treatment should be fairly quick, and you will emerge from your appointment ready to go about the rest of your day. Although you may have some redness on your skin, you will not have to worry about any side effects that could keep you from your regular activities.
There is no need to worry about the safety of Botox. It has been FDA-approved for decades and has never been associated with any serious or life-threatening side effects. Any side effects you see will be minimal and temporary, and your practitioner will go over them with you before your treatment.
