The most effective and popular treatment of its kind, BOTOX has become a recognized name synonymous with wrinkle reduction and a younger appearance. It is the only such treatment to be so extensively clinically studied, and no other formulation has been empirically demonstrated to perform at the same high level as BOTOX itself.
From Crow Feet To Frown Lines
We all know that facial wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing we can do. Collagen is one of the main tissues that gives skin its structure and shape, making our skin smooth and supple when we are young. The loss of collagen as we age is one reason our skin begins to sag and droop over time. Another reason is that the levels of fat decrease, so the underlying tissues which filled out our features begin to fade away.
In addition to these general causes of facial aging, however, the way we move our faces is largely responsible for some of the wrinkles and lines we develop as we get older.
Crow’s feet, the lines at the corners of the eyes, can be caused by smiling or squinting. Frown lines along the forehead are produced when you furrow your brow or frown.
How Does Botox Work?
With countless anti-aging products that focus on rebuilding collagen or moisturizing skin to combat the effects of time, BOTOX is the one that goes straight to the causes of crow’s feet and frown lines by treating the muscle contractions that, over time and with countless repetitions, cause those wrinkles and creases in the skin. BOTOX is injected directly into the muscles responsible for these movements, effectively and temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. Results are practically immediate – by the time you leave your doctor’s office, you will be able to look into a mirror and see a visible smoothing of the areas around the eyes and between the eyebrows. Treatment for crow’s feet consists of three injections into the muscles around the eye, and when addressing frown lines, five injections will be administered into the muscles of the forehead. BOTOX should only be used on adult patients, and you should openly discuss any existing medical conditions or medications you take with your physician before undergoing a treatment such as BOTOX.
Finding The Right Botox Doctor
Countless physicians offer BOTOX injections as part of their practice, but only a cosmetic surgeon has the necessary expertise to truly understand your cosmetic goals and concerns, provide you with all the information necessary on treatment options so that you can make a truly informed decision, and administer the treatments safely and effectively.
