TREAT WRINKLES & FINE LINES WITH BOTOX
If you are just beginning to think about facial rejuvenation Botox (or Dysport) is the perfect place to start. You will begin to see results after the first few days. Botox is safe and quick without any real downtime. You can even have it on your lunch break and be back to work without anyone knowing. Botox is a prescription neurotoxin medicine that is injected into muscles to keep these muscles from contracting.
Now Botox and Dysport are being used by younger patients who do not yet have wrinkling or fine lines in order to keep them from forming in the first place. This preventative treatment is proving very effective to put off the formation of the fine lines that lead to wrinkles and furrows.
Botox is used to improve the look of moderate to severe facial wrinkles or small creases like:
- Crows Feet Lines: The outside corners of the eyes
- Frown Lines or 11’s: Vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines
- Brow Furrows: Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
- Neck Bands: Vertical pronounced bands in the neck
How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?
Botox is used to lift and shape the brow and to soften or reduce lines in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, above the lip, or in the jawline. A Botox procedure :
- Relaxes muscles in the face and neck by blocking nerve transmission at the site of injection.
- By relaxing these muscles they are not able to contract and wrinkle.
- This has a visible smoothing effect on the skin which provides a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Botox is used for a Chemical Brow Lift which is an inexpensive temporary pre-brow lift option that costs from $63 to $147. This depends on the patient and the severity of their lines and wrinkles. This is appropriate if you are not ready for a surgical brow lift but are beginning to see signs of aging in your upper brow area.
