For centuries, makeup was the only solution to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But as soon as you washed your face, boom! The lines came back!
Nowadays, looking younger has never been easier. Why? Because we’re living in the age of BOTOX!
Unlike makeup, BOTOX does not attempt to obscure fine lines and wrinkles with products or chemicals, but rather gets to the source of all lines and wrinkles: the muscles of your face.
All wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial expressions: raising your eyebrows, smiling, frowning, and others. Performing the same expressions the exact same way for years and years—coupled with the higher stress levels that often accompany getting older—results in fine lines around the eyes, fine or deep lines on the forehead, or even a chronic frown or worried expression that makes it impossible to take a decent selfie!
But now, BOTOX makes it easier than ever to get your selfie back! BOTOX has never been more popular for the cosmetic treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, crows feet, “11” lines between the eyebrows, chronic frown-lines, and other common facial imperfections with virtually no pain and minimal side effects.
BOTOX is also an excellent procedure to use in tandem with other beautifying procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers, and laser light treatments.
But what exactly is BOTOX? What makes it so effective?
BOTOX is the FDA-approved injectable form of Botulinum Toxin A. Botulinum is a family of neurotoxins produced by the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum Toxin A is the only Botulinum toxin approved for cosmetic use. When properly administered by a qualified medical professional in the form of BOTOX, it produces very few side effects or adverse reactions.
Botulinum Toxin A stops the function of whatever muscle it is injected into, putting an end to the facial movement causing the unwanted wrinkles. It does this without removing your ability to smile, raise your eyebrows, or otherwise show organic emotional reactions to everyday events.
Similarly, after multiple injections, the overactive muscles that once caused the wrinkles will begin to grow smaller (atrophy), resulting in an even smoother, more even, more youthful look.
A single injection takes 5 to 10 minutes to administer. Results appear in less than 24 hours and last for up to four months. Your doctor will recommend for or against further injections and set up a schedule to obtain the best results without “overdoing it.”
The most common side effect is bruising or soreness at the injection site. Other common side effects include a headache, cold-like symptoms, dizziness, or a temporary drooping of the nearby eyelid or eyebrow. All side effects typically subside within 24 hours.
It’s that simple! Try the treatment for lines and wrinkles that stays on overnight! Talk to your doctor to see if BOTOX is for you!
