The effects of premature aging are never so noticeable as they are on our face. Over time, exposure to the wind and sun, the effects of gravity and our lifestyle choices can all begin to make us look older than we truly are or feel. One of the most common complaints of Lakecrest Cosmetic Surgery Center’s patients is the onset of wrinkles. Even the youngest of cosmetic patients visit our office seeking preemptive treatment of their finest lines and wrinkles.
Botox and other botulinum toxin products are some of the most widely used cosmetic treatments in the dermatology market today. This is because they are effective at preventing wrinkles before they ever form. Botox is relatively affordable and could last between 3 – 6 months, or possibly a little longer. Although the length of results varies with each person.
Botox is an FDA-approved, injectable liquid that is injected directly into the tiny facial muscles that can cause wrinkles to form. Botox temporarily paralyzes these muscles, preventing wrinkles from forming. It is common to receive Botox injections in the forehead, in between your eyebrows and at the corners of your eyes and mouth.
However, while many patients fall in love with the immediate and effective results of Botox for cosmetic purposes – many may not realize the additional advantages to Botox. When injected into other areas of the body, Botox can reduce excessive sweating, relieve migraine pain, improve vocal chord performance and even improve bladder function.
