What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX®, short for botulinum toxin, is an organic treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic usage. It tackles the myriad earmarks of age, from frown lines to crow’s feet to forehead wrinkles. It is also used for migraines, on the cords of the neck to prevent visible banding, and can also be used to prevent excess sweating on the hands and feet. Since its debut in 2002, it has become the most popular treatment of its kind; upwards of 10 million procedures have since been conducted. For those who wish to look and feel younger, this medication provides an affordable, expedient alternative to surgery.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
The treatment is swift, simple, and minimally invasive: a trained specialist injects the medication into an indicated region of the face. It targets the corresponding muscles, stemming nerve signals that cause contraction. This decreased muscular activity effects a marked diminishment of local wrinkles. The process takes no more than 20 minutes, requiring neither anesthesia nor downtime. Results appear in seven days or fewer and last from four to six months; for optimum upkeep, we recommend two to three sessions per year.
Is BOTOX® Right for Me?
BOTOX® is best used to treat minor furrows by the eyes, on the forehead, and of the glabella (between the brows). It is not prescribed for wrinkles caused by solar damage and does not combat the overall loss of skin elasticity, which progresses naturally over the aging process. This medication is recommended for people ages 18 to 65, and pregnant or nursing individuals should avoid altogether. Sometimes, the procedure yields only subtle results and alternative treatment may be necessary. Potential side effects comprise headaches, bruising, bleeding, and swelling; these are all typical of any injection and should wane within hours to days.
BOTOX® has improved the lives of millions, and it can improve yours as well. We at YouthFill MD are committed to your aesthetic rejuvenation, and we’re eager to get you where you want to be. The Fountain of Youth may not be real, but you can still see the years melt away. To learn all about us, schedule an appointment today!
