Receiving an injectable such as Botox for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles has become increasingly popular. Botox is a non-surgical alternative to addressing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and forehead.
Fortunately, visiting a cosmetic surgery practice is not necessary for receiving Botox. Today, medical day spas and some dental practices offer injectable treatments for temporarily producing a younger appearance.
How Botox Works
Botox is temporary. It is injected into areas of the face where muscles move. The repetitive movement of certain facial muscles contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox helps prevent muscles from contracting for a few months at a time.
Common areas treated with Botox include laugh lines around the mouth, crow’s feet around the eyes, and furrows in the forehead. Beyond smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, Botox might actually prevent the development of future wrinkles since facial muscles are relaxed.
Determining the amount of Botox injected and the site(s) being treated should be carefully determined by a patient and his or her doctor. When developing a person’s specific anti-aging treatment plan, it is important to focus on producing noticeable results without going overboard. Fortunately, the fact that Botox is temporary is helpful to people who want to take a conservative approach to non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
Who Benefits from Botox
A candidate for Botox is a person concerned about the appearance of wrinkles. People who receive non-surgical cosmetic injectables come from diverse backgrounds. Adult men and women from various age groups have benefitted from Botox.
