Botox injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet – wrinkles that that occur with overuse of facial muscles.
Botox has grown to become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures; there are many reasons for this. Firstly Botox attacks wrinkles at their source. If you develop a frown line, putting a substance in to fill that line is not as effective without the use of Botox to stop the frowning. With Botox, the negative image of frowning is stopped and the lines created by frowning are improved. The same applies to forehead lines and crows’ feet: If you can stop the cause of wrinkles then you will help to prevent them from returning or worsening.
Botox is extraordinarily safe. It has been used since the late 70’s for many medical conditions. The side effects are minimal and rare. The procedure takes only minutes and the down time is negligible. Effects are noticed within days and lasts for months. The degree of patient satisfaction is overwhelmingly high. Botox has become an integral part of the practice of cosmetic surgery. It has replaced unnecessary invasive surgical procedures. Its effects are outstanding and it’s use avoids the risks and down time of previously used interventions.
