A Botox® Treatment Should be Part of any Makeover
A Botox® treatment should be part of any modern makeover. Patients who want to look younger and improve their appearance can use this simple and immediate solution to help achieve those goals. Since Botox® is minimally invasive, the procedure only requires injecting a portion of Botox® into the areas of the face where a person wants to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It only takes minutes to complete and in short order, those wrinkles and fine lines will fade away.
Why does Botox® work so well?
People ask this question a lot. The answer to this question comes down to understanding what can create wrinkles in the first place. When the muscles beneath the skin become tense, wrinkles begin to form on the surface. It is like squeezing something tightly to change the shape of that object and the appearance of it. The same thing can happen with the face. Botox® relaxes the muscles and eliminates wrinkle by helping the face to remain in a relaxed state.
How often Botox® necessary?
Botox® should begin working right away. How long the effects last are different for each patient. Some people may only require treatment once a year while others want one every couple of months. We can make recommendations when first meeting with the patient.
Is Botox® going to be enough?
A Botox® treatment may be enough to change how young a person looks or how fresh they feel. In some cases, people no longer need a facelift or other facial plastic surgery because the transformation is so significant. We always encourage patients to try Botox® before proceeding with any further procedures just to see the results. In many cases, they are dramatic enough to restore our patient’s youthful appearance and their confidence.
Botox® is often used with a smile makeover as well
People often choose to have a smile makeover to whiten their teeth, replace missing ones and to improve the overall appearance of their smile. Many of these patients will also use Botox® to complete the transformation. After all, if wrinkles still surround the mouth when smiling, the smile makeover will be less prominent.
Instead of the focus being on the restored teeth or more attractive smile, the focus could be on the wrinkles surrounding the mouth - something no one wants to risk after spending time and money improving their smile.
Surgery may not be necessary
We always suggest trying this minimally invasive option before considering plastic surgery. If it works to create specific results, as is often the cases, patients can save time and money by not having further surgery.
This is an affordable way to improve a person's appearance
Ultimately, the Botox® treatment is affordable, convenient, easy and effective. This makes it incredibly popular with our patients and an excellent solution for anyone who wishes to appear more youthful. We encourage anyone who is considering this treatment to schedule an appointment with our office. We can answer questions, explain the process in detail and make recommendations for how often to schedule the treatment.
