While the vast majority of Americans have heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic, not everyone understands exactly what it does or how it can benefit them. Most know that it is used for cosmetic reasons. However, they sometimes have ideas about the treatment that are simply not true.
When it comes to BOTOX® Cosmetic, the treatment is one of the best ways to reduce the visible signs of aging. It fights dynamic wrinkles. It helps to smooth out your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance. In addition to being used for cosmetic reasons, the solution can also be used to treat individuals who are dealing with excessive sweating.
Some people have the idea that BOTOX® Cosmetic can make you have a completely frozen face. They feel nervous about the idea of undergoing the treatment because they want to be able to make normal facial expressions and not look like their face is plastic. When people have this in their mind, they are confused. Individuals who have a frozen face usually have had a forehead lift or some other type of surgical procedure done that went wrong. When the treatment is performed by our skilled provider, BOTOX® Cosmetic offers very subtle benefits that can help you fight the aging process.
When you use BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can still make normal expressions. The muscles in your face are just going to be relaxed. The relaxing of the muscles results in the lessening of lines and wrinkles on the facial skin. Since the facial muscles are relaxed, the skin that you have on your face is not creased because of constant muscle contraction. This means that your face looks smoother and younger overall.
One of the greatest things about BOTOX® Cosmetic is the fact that the treatment is non-surgical. As such, no downtime is required after the treatment session. Patients can return to virtually all of their everyday activities or even go back to work if they’d like.
