The holidays are upon us and what better way to celebrate this magical time of year than freshening up your look with some Botox. Botox has become one of the most common and latest growing cosmetic treatments.
In this blog, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery explains what Botox is and how it can help patients achieve brighter fresher-looking skin.
What is Botox?
Botox is a great way to spruce up your look without surgery. If you feel that signs of aging are making you feel self-conscious about your appearance, it may be time for Botox.
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that is injected into the facial muscles that targets wrinkles. It is a popular treatment for targeting those deep wrinkles along the forehead and around the eyes and between the brows.
Botox is the most effective on wrinkles that appear when you’re moving your face. Since the muscle won’t be moving as much after these injections, your skin won’t form the wrinkle giving you a fresher, younger look.
What can you expect?
Aside from reducing the appearance of frown lines, softening crow’s feet and improving the lines between the eyebrows you can expect the following from Botox:
- A numbing cream may be used
- Specific injection points will be selected
- Injections take up to 20 minutes to complete
- No downtime is required
When it comes to Botox there is no age limit. It is a great preventative approach to fight those aging wrinkles.
