botox injections

According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the most common cosmetic complaint that patients have is wrinkles. Or rather, “static wrinkles”. This refers to those deep lines that remain when your face is at rest. It is natural and beautiful for wrinkles to appear when you are showing emotion such as smiling, laughing, frowning, even concentrating. However when those deep lines do not relax you’re not squinting, laughing, or frowning, this may be a good time to take action. For some people this happens in their 20’s. Others may not notice this until their 30’s.
Botox is a liquid neurotoxin injected into the muscle that is used to treat frown lines, squint and smile lines, nasal crunch lines and horizontal forehead wrinkles. By relaxing the underlying muscles, these lines become less deep and show less, creating a more youthful appearance. It is injected into the small facial muscles; it stays in that area and does not travel to other areas of the body. The effects wear off naturally over a 4-6 month period.
Still not sure? Here are five benefits of Botox that makes it so popular:
1. Botox lifts the brow without surgery
In addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, your provider can give you an instant “brow lift” by injection a small amount right below your eyebrow.
2. Botox is preventative
Botox not only effectively reduces the appearance of forehead wrinkles, but also stops them from occurring in the first place. It makes sense that by starting before lines begin to appear, they won’t appear at all! This gives you a you a huge advantage towards the aging process.
3. Botox is completely safe
Unlike other cosmetic injections, Botox has virtually no serious side effects. Rare side effects include temporary discomfort, headache, and bruising. Very rarely you may see a slightly drooping eyelid that resolves in a few weeks.
4. Botox is cost effective.
When compared to the cost of cosmetic surgery, Botox is a great deal. Prices vary from provider to provider, but it is generally very affordable for most people.
5. Botox is reversible – and not a long term commitment
Botox lasts on average 4-5 months. So if you don’t like the look you can easily bow out. However, most people are so happy with the results they would not dream of stopping!
