Being Botox Bold with Delray Beach Plastic Surgery
It happens to all of us naturally as we age: over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. The secret to how millions of people manage to “turn that frown upside down” is out! Botox cosmetic has been the most popular cosmetic rejuvenation procedure for years now, and the word “Botox” has become a part of our everyday lexicon. People rave all the time about the miracles of Botox, but why? What’s so great about it? Well for starters, with one simple injection, the botulin toxin can quickly undo the wrinkles and lines that took years of smiling and frowning to form — and it has minimal side effects and little to no recovery time. Very few people absolutely love their wrinkles, and many find that Botox helps improve their professional and personal lives. The idea of injecting your face with the same substance that causes botulism may sound creepy, however, it’s impossible to actually contract botulism from the purified toxin. There are millions of people out there who don’t mind — because Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available.
Botox is a nonsurgical, medically administered treatment done at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, horizontal forehead lines, and around the eyes. When small amounts of Botox are injected into a facial muscle, the “toxin” blocks signals from the nerve to the muscle, weakening and relaxing the muscle so that it can no longer contract. This has the desirable effect of relaxing a tiny part of your face so that unwanted lines, creases, and wrinkles smooth out and disappear.
Each Botox injection takes only seconds, and results can be seen within a week after the treatment. With a quick Botox treatment appointment at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery and a few days of waiting and watching, you will see a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe lines that can last three to four months.
Where is Botox Most Effective?
It is important to note that while Botox is very effective in certain areas, it won’t work as well on all facial muscles. For example, Botox shouldn’t be used to target laugh lines or wrinkles around the mouth because those muscles need to be active for eating and talking (see more on dermal fillers for this). Also, Botox can’t improve wrinkles caused by sun damage, either. However, Botox can improve:
- The outer corners of the eyes, to target crow’s feet
- Between the eyebrows and on the upper bridge of the nose, to remove frown and furrow creases
- The middle of the forehead, to soften lines that come from furrowing your brow
- The muscle bands on the neck, to help relieve “turkey neck”
All over the country the cosmetic market is saturated with medical spas performing Botox® injections, but Botox users should be aware: experience is key when it comes to injectables and the best advice is to defer to an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. A trained physician or a physician assistant injects Botox®. Administering Botox is a specialized medical procedure that requires medical education in the anatomy and physiology of the facial muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and other areas. So make sure you choose Delray Beach Plastic Surgery to help you be Botox Bold this Fall season!
