Botox Cosmetic is the number one
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is one of the well-known cosmetic treatments used to reduce fine lines and facial wrinkles and relax muscles located in the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. Since its FDA approval, Botox Cosmetic has truly made its mark for cosmetic purposes, with thousands of satisfied patients and numerous additional FDA approvals.
There are two types of wrinkles – dynamic & static. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle contractions and static wrinkles are caused by loss of collagen, volume, and aging. When patients look in the mirror with their face at rest, they can see their static wrinkles. We see these as “paratheses” around the nose and mouth, loss of volume in cheeks and temples and loss of definition in the jawline. These are treated by fillers, such as Juvederm.
Dynamic wrinkles are seen when we make expressions, like smiling and frowning. These wrinkles are treated with Botox Cosmetic. As we get older, these repeated contractions of our muscles, in addition to other changes in our skin, can result in dynamic wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is the Gold Standard to safely and effectively treat these wrinkles.
Patients use Botox as a preventative measure in keeping wrinkles from eventually forming. It is never too late to start your Botox Cosmetic treatments, but remember it took years to create those wrinkles and may take multiple treatments to correct them.
