Do you squint or burrow your brow? Many of us do it without even being aware, many times throughout the day. If you are an animated conversationalist, story-teller or public speaker, you most likely have raised your eyebrows more times throughout a day than others.
Speaking to large or small groups of people can be intimidating for a lot of people. It takes confidence and poise.
If you’re worried about your wrinkles and lines taking the spotlight from what you have to say to how you look while you are saying it, then
BOTOX® COSMETIC may be the confidence boost you need.
BOTOX® COSMETIC, a wrinkle smoother, has been raising eyebrows since it was introduced, by accident, to the cosmetic world around 1962, when a physician used BOTOX® on a patient to help stop a twitching eye. Following the treatment, the physician noticed that the patient’s lines around his eyes (the “crow’s feet”) had vanished.
Since that time, the BOTOX® phenomenon has amassed accolades for its many successful cosmetic applications, as well as successfully treating a number of ailments, from overactive sweat glands to migraine headaches to depression!
BOTOX® COSMETIC NOW
BOTOX® Cosmetic smooth’s wrinkles caused by facial expressions such as raising your eyebrows or squinting, laughing, smiling and frowning. BOTOX® COSMETIC also works on relaxing the bands of wrinkles in the neck area.
BOTOX® COSMETIC CANDIDATES
If you are ages 25 to 65, then you are a good candidate for Botox® Cosmetic. Every person has his or her own set of wrinkles– distinctly their own. For that reason, each patient should have a private consultation to determine the best target areas of treatment and the number of treatments that may be required to obtain optimal results.
To sustain smooth, youthful skin, it is usually recommended that you receive three to four injections.
While the recommended age for BOTOX® COSMETIC is between 25 to 65 years young, because it rejuvenates skin to a more youthful look, would you imagine that teenagers are actually starting to use it as a preventative measure? Since each application of BOTOX® COSMETIC essentially pushes wrinkles away by freezing muscles, hitting them before they get started is a great idea which is gaining interest and being termed “Prejuvenation.”
BOTOX® COSMETIC – HOW IT WORKS
A small amount of BOTOX® COSMETIC is injected with a fine needle into targeted areas, which feels like a slight pinch. Patients experience minimal discomfort.
Anesthesia is unnecessary and there is no down time with this procedure. It is recommended that you avoid heavy lifting for one day following each treatment, but you may immediately return to normal activity.
Gently massaging the injected area for one day is also recommended.
You should see the full effects of Botox® Cosmetic treatments three to eight days after the procedure.
Results usually last for three to six months. Repeat treatments result in a longer lasting effect.
OTHER BENEFITS OF BOTOX® COSMETIC
Many people think of BOTOX® COSMETIC as just an anecdote for wrinkles, but it has many other amazing benefits, from helping to prevent migraine headache episodes, to fighting depression and helping those who have uncontrollable muscle spasms caused by Dystonia or Arthritis. Botox has even been found to help children who have Cerebral Palsy.
In addition to these benefits, Botox® injections can also be used to freeze sweat glands in people who overly perspire, which often leads to embarrassing situations.
While Botox® first came to prominence because of its use as a plastic surgery tool; the benefits surrounding this injection are significant. Smoothing away wrinkles and retaining one’s youthful appearance are important goals and are a great benefit. However, the long-term health benefits of Botox® truly make it a wonder drug. Headaches are gone; painful joints hurt less; and some people are even able to walk again. The wonders and discoveries of Botox® never cease to amaze.
