BOTOX® treatment is by far the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States today. There is a lot of confusion about this treatment, and this confusion has led some to have unreal expectations, whereas others have unnecessary worries about the treatment.
Is BOTOX® a Wrinkle Prevention Treatment?
Yes, BOTOX® can prevent wrinkles. It is a purified neural modulator and is effective at completely erasing wrinkles for some and reducing horizontal frontal lines for others. It can reduce the appearance of vertical frown lines and has helped many remove crow’s feet.
BOTOX® treatments work by slowing down facial contractions. Your face makes hundreds, if not thousands, of muscle contractions each day. These contractions fold your skin. This, in turn, leads to lines being etched in your skin. Common areas that this occurs includes around your eyes, your lips, and your cheeks.
BOTOX® treatments have been shown to lift the corners of the mouth. Sagging corners of the mouth are a telltale sign of aging. In addition to reducing the appearance of the wrinkles that you currently have, BOTOX® treatments are effective when it comes to preventing future wrinkles.
What to Expect from Treatment
BOTOX® is popular because it is effective and safe. A major misconception that people have about it is that it will make them feel numb or give them a frozen look. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It’s important to remember that BOTOX® is not designed to affect the nerves in your face associated with sensation. Modern treatments use techniques that are designed to give you an appealing, sincere, and natural look.
This is one of the reasons why it is important that you only have treatments performed by professionals who are qualified to do the work. A qualified doctor not only understands the mechanical functioning of BOTOX®, but they also have a good eye for aesthetics. They work with you to help you achieve your anti-aging goals. An experienced doctor is going to be able to work with you in determining how much of the product you will need to achieve your goal based on your muscle structure and size.
