There’s a safe and perfect way to diminish the appearance of the fine facial lines and wrinkles associated with the passage of time. Summer is the perfect time to experience the most popular aesthetic, cosmetic treatment in the world, Botox® Cosmetic. Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin A, which means there’s absolutely no botulism risk when used properly.
Botox® blocks the nerves that contract your facial muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It’s at its most effective when used on wrinkles that haven’t quite set, your “dynamic” wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear while you’re moving the muscles of your face, such as when you laugh, frown and smile.
Botox® is non-surgical. It’s fast, easy and quickly treats the lines and wrinkles in your forehead area and around your nose and mouth. It lifts your brow making you look younger, less stressed and tired. And did you know that Botox® can decrease excessive sweating? This is a benefit you may not have heard of. Excess under-arm sweating is an embarrassing problem for many people that they must deal with every day. A simple Botox® treatment can lessen the amount of sweat produced.
A few additional Botox® factoids:
- If you take aspirin or ibuprofen, be sure to tell us before you schedule a treatment. These medications thin the blood and 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.
- If you’re breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant, the FDA recommends that you wait before starting Botox® treatments.
- A “Botox® Party” 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.
- Remember that “less is more” – opt for a natural look.
