Are You Considering A Botox® Treatment?

Eventually, everyone must deal with the fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Fortunately, there is a perfect way to diminish their appearance – Botox® Cosmetic Treatments.

Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin A, which means there’s no botulism risk when used properly. It works by blocking the nerves that contract facial muscles, softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox® is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set, called “dynamic” wrinkles that appear while you’re moving the muscles of your face, such as when you smile and frown.

  • Botox® lifts the brow making your face look less tired, giving you a more youthful appearance.
  • Botox® is a fast, easy, non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for wrinkles in the forehead and around the mouth.
  • Botox® decreases excessive This is a benefit many people may not be aware of. For some people, excess sweating under the arms is an embarrassing problem that must be dealt with on a day to day basis. A simple Botox® treatment can lessen the amount of sweat produced.

If you decide to give Botox® a try, consider the following:

  • If you take aspirin or ibuprofen, be sure to tell your doctor before you schedule a treatment. These medications thin the blood and increase bleeding. Some natural suppléments, such as fish oil, gingko, or vitamin E, also thin the blood. Your doctor may ask you not to use those supplements for two weeks before your treatment.
  • Remember that “less is more.” Ask your doctor for a natural, expressive look.
  • Although parties are fun, they are not a time to try Botox®. These treatments should only be done by a doctor who is board-certified in dermatology or plastic surgery.

If you’re breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant, the FDA recommends that you talk to your doctor before starting Botox®. Rare side-effects can be headache, bruising, pain at the site of injection, and, in less than 1% of cases, drooping eyelids or eyebrows that will return to their natural position within a few weeks.
