Getting older can take an emotional toll on you. It can be challenging for you to look at yourself as your appearance changes against your liking. It’s a slow process most of us fail to realize at first. However, as the process progresses, it becomes difficult to ignore. You start to notice one wrinkle, then you notice another wrinkle, and within short order it seems like wrinkles have dominated your face. BOTOX® in West Palm Beach can help turn things around.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure performed today. It is a non-invasive treatment designed to prevent skin wrinkles from forming. BOTOX® is designed to work against dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that appear on our face when we smile, frown, or make other facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles are commonly seen on the forehead, around the eyes, and around your lips.
There are no topical creams you can use to treat dynamic wrinkles. This is because dynamic wrinkles are caused by something underneath the skin. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the contraction of your facial muscles. When your facial muscles contract and relax, they cause your skin to contract and relax.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® provides a solution by temporarily paralyzing the nerves that cause your facial muscles to contract. It’s important to understand that BOTOX® is not a permanent treatment. It is designed to be a temporary fix. BOTOX® will affect the treated muscles for between three to six months, depending on your metabolism and the muscles that are being treated. It is also important to understand that BOTOX® does not prevent you from making facial expressions.
When BOTOX® is used properly, it is able to provide you with a naturally relaxed appearance. You will still be able to smile, frown, and express yourself the same way you did prior to BOTOX® treatments. The only difference is that when you do, you’ll be able to make these facial expressions without dynamic wrinkles robbing your face of its natural beauty and youthful appearance.
BOTOX® can be administered in around 30 minutes. Since it is a nonsurgical procedure, no anesthesia is required. You’re able to have the procedure done, walk out of the procedure, and go back to your everyday activities. It is a quick and effective way to improve the way that you look.
