When it was first introduced more than a decade ago, the injectable Botox Cosmetic revolutionized the way plastic surgeons and clinicians are able to affect the signs of aging. Since then, Botox has earned its place as a household name, which also makes it susceptible to critics about its effectiveness or even its safety. In reality, Botox is a safe, effective, and smart choice for patients looking to temporarily reverse or suspend aging symptoms, including fine lines and wrinkles, deep creases, and more. It offers prospective patients a low-risk and nonsurgical treatment option. If you’ve been considering Botox treatments or just want to learn more, you might be impressed with its many benefits.

Totally Nonsurgical, But Completely Effective

One of the biggest draws about the Botox procedure is that it is nonsurgical. For patients who aren’t ready or willing to go under the knife, Botox is an effective option to try instead. Instead of anesthesia and incisions, Botox patients are faced with numbing agents and injections. For many, it’s a welcome alternative to hours-long procedures and lengthy recoveries.

Derived from the toxin Clostridium botulinum, Botox Cosmetic has been FDA-approved for specific anti-aging treatments when injected in a controlled manner. While the word “toxin” makes people nervous, the formula is not a toxic or dangerous substance patients need to worry about. Instead, it is specifically targeted to temporarily freeze selected muscles in the face. With the muscles unable to move, facial lines and wrinkles cannot be deepened and will likely diminish I appearance. Botox is especially effective in areas where the muscles move frequently.

Lines & Wrinkles Be Gone!

Without the muscles constantly moving and creasing the skin, facial lines and wrinkles will begin to smooth. Not only will Botox help to lessen the appearance of existing aging signs, but I can also stop new lines from forming in other places. Combining preventative measures with healing time for the skin is one of the unique benefits that Botox Cosmetic has to offer.

A Quick, Nonsurgical Brow Treatment

One of the hardest hit spots during the aging process is the forehead and brow, where deep lines can form and tired muscles can leave the skin to sag. Brow lift surgery is one treatment option to correct these problems, but Botox can provide a temporary, nonsurgical alternative. With injections placed strategically in the muscles of the brow, it can be lifted to a more natural looking position and alleviate the pressure and sagging. Some patients are happy to repeat Botox treatments at regular intervals to maintain these results, while others use it as a preview of what surgery could offer them. Either way, the results will speak for themselves.

A Low-Risk Treatment Option

Surgeries are often accompanied with the risk of complications. While some nonsurgical treatments also carry risks, Botox ranks among the safest. Some mild side effects can occur, such as headaches, light bruising, tingling, and discomfort at the injection site, but even these are not common. Each of these symptoms will gradually subside on their own, without any long-term damage or other complications to follow.

Customizable Treatments for Individual Needs

Botox Cosmetic is not administered as a one-size-fits-all procedure. Instead, one of our cosmetic specialists  will work with you to discover what areas are of the most concern to you and what results you’d like to see. The injections themselves can be used in tiny amounts to gradually provide buildable results. Areas with deeper, more dramatic wrinkles may need more injections or larger amounts of Botox. Finer lines will need much smaller amounts in turn. By customizing your treatment in this way, your coasmetic specialists can create a natural looking end result. You don’t have to worry about the overly-filled, “frozen” or plastic-y looks that you’re afraid of getting. Work together with your clinician to achieve the best results for you.
