Is your skin giving away your age? Some of the deepest facial lines and wrinkles tend to appear between the brows and in the forehead area. This unwelcome skin development can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Wrinkles and creases of this type tend to develop as a result of making repeated facial expressions over the years. Fortunately, BOTOX® treatment works for both men and women to help eliminate these types of wrinkles in a very safe and effective way.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment used for minimizing frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead wrinkles. It works by relaxing the underlying muscles that form these types of lines and wrinkles.
Is BOTOX® the Same as Facial Fillers?
No. The two products are completely different and work in very different ways. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce wrinkles using a purified protein solution, while fillers contain various substances to fill in wrinkles by enhancing facial volume.
Are the Injections Safe?
BOTOX® treatment is extremely safe and has been used successfully in the treatment of many patients both cosmetically and medically for over two decades. The product is created under the strictest of controlled conditions. Its manufacturer has a great record of product safety.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
Most patients make suitable candidates for BOTOX® treatment; however, it is not for everyone. That’s one of the reasons why a consultation is so important. During this meeting, we’ll want to make sure you have the type of wrinkles that BOTOX® is designed to treat. These are known as dynamic wrinkles. Good candidates are also in good overall health and have realistic expectations.
