Life is emotional. We laugh, cry, frown, squint, etc. Over time, these facial expressions start to leave fine lines and wrinkles behind on the face. Dynamic wrinkles, the ones caused by facial movements, are some of the most frustrating ones out there. Luckily, there is BOTOX®, a non-surgical and well-loved method of fading these wrinkles and rejuvenating your entire look.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment that aims to temporarily reduce or stop muscle movement in targeted areas. The solution is safe when injected in the small doses required for this treatment. It has proven itself useful for a variety of medical purposes, with new ones being discovered all of the time.
The way BOTOX® stops muscle movement is by blocking synapses. Basically, your brain sends a signal to the muscle to move in a certain way, but the signal is unable to be delivered. This gives your skin time to relax and bounce back. It also helps to prevent the formation of new wrinkles.
Is BOTOX® Safe?
This treatment is considered to be very safe. It has been used successfully for years with few reported side effects. After the injections are made, the ingredients stay put. You do not have to worry about BOTOX® spreading throughout your body and causing issues. Even if the active ingredients were to spread, the dose is far lower than what is associated with causing problems. Also, the treatment does not make your face go numb. That is because your body actually has two types of nerves – one for feeling and one for moving. The nerves responsible for feeling are not impacted.
Why Choose BOTOX®?
If you are bothered by dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines or crow’s feet, consider this treatment option because:
- There is no set downtime after the treatment.
- You do not need to do anything special to prepare.
- It is safe and FDA-approved.
- Results show up within roughly one week.
- Results last for months.
- Injections are given in a precise manner for natural-looking results.
