Have you recently looked at yourself mirror and found a much older reflection than you were expecting? As the signs of aging begin to take hold, your skin will begin to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet that threaten to steal away your youthful appearance. And while these changes are a natural part of getting older, that does not mean that you have to live with them forever. Thanks to cosmetic treatments like Botox, you can safely retain your youthful appearance for much longer.
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable treatment that contains botulinum toxin, a component that is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This treatment is designed to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing the facial muscles. In as little as 15 minutes, a minimally invasive Botox treatment can completely redefine your appearance and take years off your look.
How Does Botox Help Prevent Wrinkles on Your Face?
For many years, Botox has been one of the leading cosmetic treatments for those who want to get rid of those annoying wrinkles and fine lines. The reason this treatment does wonders is due to how it interacts with your body after you receive your initial injection.
The muscles on your face contract regularly, resulting in the formation of the facial lines that we know as wrinkles. Over time, it can cause crow’s feet, vertical frown lines, and horizontal lines on your forehead.
When you receive Botox injections, it prevents your nerves from releasing acetylcholine. This is a chemical used to make your muscles contract. By blocking the release of this chemical, Botox prevents excess facial expressions. It allows your muscles to relax and decreases the visibility of lines on your face with time.
Why is Botox a Popular Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedure?
There are several reasons why people opt for Botox over other types of cosmetic procedures. For starters, the results of this treatment will start to become visible in less than a week. They should last for a maximum of six months. Another reason people love getting Botox is because of how the results look. After you receive the injections, you will look noticeably refreshed and vibrant.
Also, there aren’t any restrictions on what you can do after the treatment. You can get back to your regular activities after leaving our office; however, we do ask that you refrain from exercising for the first 24hours.
