The unfortunate truth about aging is that we all eventually experience wrinkles and fine lines. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and tends to sag rather than bounce back like it used to. With age, the skin on our faces loses its collagen along with fat cells, causing it to droop. Defy the effects of time and keep your skin looking younger with Botox, as it is one of the best ways to reduce fine lines with minimal pain and recovery time.
How Botox Works
Botox is the brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. While Botulinum is actually the same toxin that causes the life-threatening form of food poisoning called botulism, the dosage of botulinum in Botox injections is small and diluted. Because of this, it is not possible to become sick from Botox injections.
Botox works to temporarily paralyze muscles, which means the injected muscles can no longer contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. The injections block signals between nerves and muscles, which causes the muscles around the wrinkles to move much less, resulting in a smoother face.
Benefits of Botox
The cosmetic benefits of Botox have become widely popular. From reducing crow’s feet to treating a saggy brow, Botox injections can help patients look years younger. Treatments only take a few minutes and do not require anesthesia, making it a quick and convenient way to look younger. Injections are done with very fine needles for only minor discomfort. The full effect of Botox usually takes anywhere between three to seven days to settle in.
With minimal side effects and proven results, Botox is a great treatment option for any of the following:
- Minimize the look of crow’s feet
- Minimize the appearance of superficial wrinkles
- Minimize smile lines
Additional Benefits of Botox
While most people are familiar with the cosmetic uses of Botox, it can be used medically as well. Along with minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox can help treat migraine headaches and reduce sweat production for those with hyperhidrosis. For men with overactive bladders, Botox can even help to reduce the size of the prostate gland.
