BOTOX use is on the rise in the United States. Still, there is a lot of confusion and some fear about the popular cosmetic treatment. The primary question that people ask is, can BOTOX minimizes wrinkles and fine lines?
BOTOX and Wrinkles
BOTOX is very effective at removing and preventing wrinkles and fine lines as well as crow’s feet.
The injections relax muscles in the face that are constantly contracting. It is the contraction motion of these muscles that etch lines into the skin.
BOTOX can also be used to lift up the corners of the mouth. This counteracts the sagging that naturally happens as a person ages. It can be used in the chin to get rid of smoker lines, around the mouth and on vertical neck cords
Will BOTOX Give You a Frozen Face?
No. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves that allow you to feel things. When it is applied in the proper way, it will give a person an attractive, soft, sincere appearance.
For this reason, it is essential to only be treated by an experienced professional who is able to engage the size of your facial muscles and use that measurement to determine the amount of BOTOX you will need.
What Are the Side Effects?
Most injections have some kind of side effect. BOTOX is not an exception to this rule. In most cases, the side effects of Botox are minor such as bruising at the site and only last for a short period of time.
At What Age Do Most People Start to Use BOTOX?
There is no set age. The purpose of BOTOX is to remove fine lines and wrinkles. So if a person does not have fine lines and wrinkles, they have no reason to use it.
However, once these natural symptoms of aging occur, a person can start using BOTOX. There is no maximum amount of applications that can be given. There are many patients who have used BOTOX repeatedly for decades without negative effects.
Are the Effects Permanent?
The results will vary from person to person. In most cases, BOTOX last for between 3 to 4 months.
Can Everyone Tell When a Person Is Has BOTOX?
Yes and no. If it is applied correctly, BOTOX will make you look younger and fresher. If it is not applied correctly, a person will have a smooth, skin that does not appear natural.
BOTOX is an effective way to remove the lines and wrinkles that come with age. It is safe and has produced positive results for millions of people. Contact Rao Dermatology today to schedule your consultation.
