It is likely that someone you know, perhaps a friend, family member or coworker, has received BOTOX® injections. This is because BOTOX® is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States today. On an annual basis, millions of injections of this famous product are performed around the world. These treatments allow people to improve the way they look by getting rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles connected to the aging process. Maybe you have seen how this popular treatment has helped your friends or family members slow down the signs of aging. Maybe you’re thinking about receiving injections, but you’re not quite sure. If you are in the Reading area, there are some good reasons why you might want to consider BOTOX® with our specialist in Wyomissing.
First and foremost, BOTOX® gives you a more youthful appearance. It works by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for forming dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines. The result is that these facial muscles do not respond to nerve impulses when you make facial expressions. Therefore, dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by muscle contractions, disappear and leave you with a smoother complexion. BOTOX® treatments can do for you what topical treatments could never do. There is no lotion or cream that can get rid of dynamic wrinkles. This is because these particular wrinkles are caused underneath the skin, so the only way to target them effectively is to treat them at their source.
As you smile and frown, you work the skin on your face. Eventually, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds and frown lines become etched into your skin. BOTOX® is designed to relax your facial muscles, thereby giving your skin a break from the harsh muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles. If your skin is given enough time to rest, those lines disappear.
The injectable is also a preventative treatment in that it prevents future wrinkles from developing. This is done by encouraging your body to produce more collagen and elastin. The result is healthier and more vibrant-looking skin.
As an added benefit, BOTOX® treatments are simple, quick and easy. You can usually receive your injections and leave our office in just minutes. When your treatment session is finished, you can go right back to your everyday activities as usual. You don’t have any downtime, and you don’t need to recover.
