You have options when it comes to taking care of the natural effects of aging. Lines and wrinkles are normal parts of skin aging that you can treat. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments is BOTOX® Cosmetic for fine lines and wrinkles, which are often the first signs of aging to show up on the face. Although many people are great candidates for this safe, minimally-invasive treatment, you can find out more about whether you are a good candidate by coming in for a consultation.
The main reason that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are given is to treat fine lines and wrinkles that appear on your face when you are making an expression. These expression lines differ from their deeper counterparts known as static wrinkles because they typically disappear from your face when it is at rest. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for horizontal lines on the forehead, vertical lines between your eyebrows and crow’s feet, it can actually be safely used for a variety of purposes.
A Temporary Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic is also a great solution if you are looking for a temporary treatment rather than for a more permanent and also much more invasive solution. You will need to return for follow-up treatments to maintain your results. Over time, you may begin to see your results lasting a bit longer as your expressive muscles become more used to being in a relaxed state.
Of course, you should also have realistic expectations about what you will receive from your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. This treatment will provide subtle, natural-looking results. This can help you feel more youthful, which may, in turn, give you more confidence. As long as you are generally healthy, your skin is free of infection and you have realistic expectations, this may be a great solution for your lines and wrinkles.
