Helpful Information when it comes to understanding Botox
The goal of using Botox Cosmetic is to create a natural younger you. Wrinkles, unfortunately, are in everyone’s future.
Wrinkles are created by the continuous movement of facial muscles under the skin, causing a creasing and folding to meet the muscles demands.
Unfortunately when they are left untreated over the years these little fine lines create scars so even when you are not using your facial expressions (muscles) the lines still remain.
One way to counteract this problem is with the use of Botox Cosmetic.
Botox stops the muscles from being able to contract hence slowing down the aging process and keeping wrinkles (scars) at bay.
The only way to truly prevent a wrinkle from forming is to treat the cause; relaxing the muscle and restricting movement.
By relaxing the specific facial muscle with Botox Injections you are able to provide the skin above with a much-needed vacation.
This “vacation” allows for the skin to smooth back out into its natural more youthful position. Depending on how deep your wrinkles are will dictate how many sessions/units you will need to see an entirely lifted wrinkle.
Sometimes other treatment options are necessary such as fillers (Juvederm, Juvederm Plus, and Radiesse), peels and/ or plastic surgery.
The goal behind using Botox Cosmetic is to create a natural younger you “not a frozen expressionless face”.
This is accomplished by relaxing muscles under the skin to allow your wrinkled areas to settle into a natural/ younger looking wrinkle-free position.
Botox can be utilized in many different areas.
Some applications are listed below, but you have a special concern we always recommend coming in for a consultation to discuss your needs.
