How Botox works for wrinkle reduction

by Kim Chance

There is a lot of talk about Botox, but not everyone has a clear understanding of how it is used and what it can accomplish.  When you are fighting the aging process and working to have a youthful appearance, Botox can help you.

People often talk about all wrinkles as if they are all created equal and can receive the same exact treatments in order to help them go away. This is not accurate.  Neuromodulators, such as Botox, help to lessen the muscle movement that is ultimately causing the wrinkles.   A full life brings its share of surprises, smiles and frowns.  All those experiences and facial expressions mean repeated muscle contractions, causing lines and wrinkles to appear.   Botox works for wrinkle reduction because it relaxes these muscles, allowing the skin to relax as well.  Botox is perfect for reducing crow’s feet, frown lines, and other wrinkles that come as a result of facial movements.  The treatment is temporary and in most cases, is needed every 3-4 months, depending on your metabolism.

Are you a good candidate ?

Botox is popular because it works.  People like this treatment because they have little to no side effects, do not require any downtime, and is quick and easy to have done.

While this product works great on people who are a little bit older and already have some deep wrinkles etched into their faces, this product is also ideal for individuals who are just starting to see the signs of aging.  Botox can actually be used to prevent wrinkles.  So, individuals who are as young as 25-30 years old can visit us for treatments in order to prevent the formation of deep wrinkles.

Smooth your lines.  Keep the experiences that made them!
