BOTOX® Cosmetic - Safe and Effective Treatment
BOTOXÂ® cosmetic is an FDA approved purified protein that helps treat prominent wrinkles and scowl lines between the brows. It is also used commonly and safely, off label, for those stubborn wrinkles on the forehead and the outer eye â¬Åcrow's feet that make us look tired and more aged. A few tiny injections of BOTOX Cosmetic at your board certified plastic surgeon's office is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the face and bring back a glowing look.
The injection works wonders by relaxing the contracting muscles that cause the skin to lose its elasticity and become lax, creating those undesirable wrinkles. After Botox, the wrinkles over the treated muscles are more relaxed so you look more rested and refreshed. Because you still will have plenty of expression in the surrounding areas of the face, you can still look very natural and animated without looking harsh and tired.
Plastic surgeons commonly utilize this non-surgical procedure to treat patients who complain of having a tired, angry, unapproachable, or prematurely aged look. The treatment temporarily blocks chemicals that cause the facial muscles to contract. This helps to relax these targeted muscles and bring about a well rested, natural appearance. A few injections to the specific muscles in the face are all that is required. Patients needn't worry about pain as it is tolerable and no anesthesia is required which makes the procedure a whole lot simpler and least complicated.
Patients may show minimal signs of swelling with redness. This is not a matter of concern as it is quite common and disappears in less than an hour's time, so you're ready to go back to work or play immediately. In some cases, patients show slight bruising; this again is temporary and can be well concealed with makeup. Though the results are not permanent, those who undergo BOTOXÂ® treatment enjoy superior looks for a considerable duration ranging from anywhere between three to six months.
BOTOXÂ® cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment for both men and women. Those interested in obtaining treatment should consult a reputable plastic surgeon. Your surgeon would answer all queries or doubts and determine whether the procedure would help you achieve the facial rejuvenation you desire.
