Yes, there is a perfect, easy, and safe way to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles associated with the relentless march of time. You know of it, have heard about and read about it…it’s Botox® is the most popular aesthetic injectable treatment in the world.
•It’s important keep in mind that Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin A, which means there’s no botulism risk when used properly.
•Botox® blocks the nerves that contract your facial muscles, softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set. These are called dynamic wrinkles, and they appear while you move the muscles of your face when you smile and frown.
•Botox® non-surgically treats the lines and wrinkles in your forehead area and around your nose and mouth. It can lift your brow making you look younger, less tired and less stressed.
•A good rule-of-thumb for a Botox® treatment is “less is more.”
•Botox® can also decrease excessive sweating, a use you may not have heard about. Excess underarm sweating can be an embarrassing problem for some people, and a simple Botox® treatment can lessen the amount of sweat produced.
Some additional Botox® information:
•If you’re breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant, the FDA recommends that you wait before opting for Botox® treatments.
•If you take aspirin or ibuprofen, be sure to tell us before you schedule a treatment. These medications thin the blood and may increase bleeding. Some natural supplements, such as fish oil, gingko, or vitamin E, also thin the blood. We may ask you not to use those supplements for two weeks before your treatment.
•Have you been invited to attend a “Botox® Party”? If so, that is not the time to try Botox®. These injections should only be done by a doctor who is board-certified in dermatology or plastic surgery.
The take away – If your friends have tried Botox® and are encouraging you to try it as well, call to schedule a consultation appointment. Fall is the perfect time to begin thinking about upcoming holiday events and parties.
