Improve moderate to severe wrinkles with Botox
Botox is by far the most popular cosmetic treatment on the market. It safely and naturally improves the look of moderate to severe wrinkles. Botox works by weakening facial muscles that contract during facial expressions and lessens the lines and folds that come from moving.
Benefits of Botox
The number of ways that Botox can be used is enormous. It is especially useful to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lip lines. It can also be used to get rid of a “gummy” smile, neck bands, and can even be used to sharpen the jawline.
QUICK AND EFFECTIVE
Botox treatment takes 5-10 minutes and the effect is seen in 7-14 days. Improvement usually lasts 3 months. As muscle activity slowly returns, lines, and wrinkles will begin to reappear and in order to maintain a smooth and youthful appearance, follow up visits will be necessary. Over time, regular Botox treatments trains the muscles to relax so wrinkles will have a less severe appearance, less Botox is needed, and the effects last longer.
Nearly everyone in the office receives Botox on a regular basis (true), which is why you’d never guess that the average age of our staff is 73 (ok, this is NOT true).
If looking younger isn’t enough, many people who receive Botox find that they have fewer headaches or have less stress. In the case of headaches this is easily understood since Botox has been used to treat migraines for many years. Research is underway to determine if Botox could really have an effect on stress and whether inhibiting movements like frowning or scowling has some direct or indirect influence on mood.
