BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have become famous for helping countless people reduce fine lines and wrinkles, effectively turning back the clock on the facial skin. It remains the most effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles and is approved in many countries for this use. We at The Plastic Surgery Center are proud to offer this time-honored treatment, and we urge you to learn more in order to see if it might be right for you!
How the Treatment Works
Besides damage from the sun, there are several ways that the skin can form fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen production slows down with age. Free radicals from the environment can start to wear on your skin. Most importantly, perhaps, is how repeated muscle movements eventually lead to creases in the face. Muscle contractions to squint, frown, laugh, etc. lead to facial lines that, over time, do not go away once the movement stops. BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces the underlying muscle activity, relaxing the facial skin and eliminating these lines.
Getting the actual treatment usually takes just minutes. After your session, you’ll see visible improvements in the following days. These results often last for a number of months but are not considered permanent. If you do not receive follow-up treatments, muscle movements resume at their normal level and fine lines and wrinkles can return.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Practically anyone looking to eliminate the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, laugh/frown lines, or any other dynamic wrinkles (those caused by repetitive muscle movement) should consider BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. People of various ages and backgrounds have been turning to this treatment to regain their younger looks and self-confidence. Wrinkles appear at different times for everyone, and this depends on many different factors.
