One of the biggest cosmetic concerns that people experience is wrinkles, which are naturally created over the aging process. Botox is a phenomenal treatment approved by the FDA that helps patients reclaim youthful skin. It is designed to address fine lines and dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and brow, those that develop when you make a facial expression.
How Does Botox Work?
Before explaining how Botox can benefit you, it’s good for you to have an overall understanding of how this treatment works. It is basically a shield that sits between your brain and the muscles that are being treated. If your brain is telling your facial muscles to move or twitch in a certain way, whether it is on purpose or because of an infirmity that leads to misfiring neurons, the muscles will stand still. Relaxing your muscles in such a way can lead to cosmetic improvements.
Concerns That Botox Can Address
A drooping brow can often give off a tired or unhappy appeal. Botox can relax the brow muscles when it is delivered correctly. Over time, as facial muscle activity is reduced, you can notice a smoother complexion and faded age lines. Ultimately, results will vary from person to person.
Ideal Candidates for Botox
People of all genders and skin types may consider this amazing anti-aging injectable. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised to seek an alternative treatment option, as Botox may not be suitable for you. Additionally, ideal candidates are those who:
- Have become self-conscious of how age lines are affecting their image
- Are not allergic to any components in the Botox formula
- Do not smoke
- Are in good general health
- Have realistic expectations in mind for this treatment
- Are not candidates for surgical procedures and are seeking a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative
