It can be fun looking back at photographs you took when you were young. It can also be disheartening to look at old photographs, especially when you compare the way that you look in these older photographs with the way that you look now. Time can take its toll on your appearance. A once smooth and attractive face can morph into one that is full of wrinkles. It is unsettling, at times, to watch as nature robs you of your youthful appearance. It is sad to see the person you once were slowly changing. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way for you to slow down or even reverse the aging process in Glenview, IL? Well, there is, and it is BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that is taking the cosmetic community by storm. Even if you have never had a cosmetic procedure performed, it is very likely that you have heard of it. BOTOX® is a treatment designed to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. This is great because dynamic wrinkles are usually the first signs of aging.
BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA for treating a wide range of issues, including dynamic wrinkles. This neuromodulator has the ability to block nerve signals that cause your face to make expressions. So when you intentionally or inadvertently send signals to your facial muscles, BOTOX® will block these, thereby minimizing the force with which you express facial gestures. This allows your facial muscles to relax. This allows any lines and wrinkles caused by facial contractions to disappear. The nice thing about BOTOX® is that it produces results that last for multiple months.
There are a lot of reasons why people in our area opt for BOTOX® when it comes to treating dynamic wrinkles. One of the reasons it is so popular is that it does not require any downtime, nor does it require any incisions. With a few simple injections, you are able to banish unwanted dynamic wrinkles. Many people can have BOTOX® treatments performed in just minutes.
The cosmetic professional working with you will help to identify the parts of your face that need treatment. After the injections, you may notice an immediate decrease in facial lines. However, it’s likely that you will need to wait a few days to a week to see the full effects of the treatment.
