Reduce wrinkles with BOTOX®

What is Botulinum Cosmetic?

Botulinum (BTX) acts as a by temporarily reducing the activity of muscles that cause overlying skin to contract and over time, form wrinkles. As the muscle relaxes, the wrinkles are smoothed away. Your face will still be capable of expression and you will still look like you – just smoother!

How does BTX work?

The more frequently our facial muscles are used, the more likely that a furrow or frown line will form. BTX Cosmetic works by reducing the activity in these muscles to give a more relaxed and carefree appearance. Quite often these lines can be completely erased with regular use of BTX. Best of all, treatment with BTX is simple and can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. There is no recovery time, and you can get back to your day with little interruption.

What facial areas can be treated with BTX?

Between the brows (deeper furrows and frown lines)
Forehead (horizontal expression lines)
Eye area (crows feet and squint lines)
Brow area to give a natural, lifted look

BTX® is also used to control Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and is FDA approved for the treatment of the underarm area.

“Treatment with BTX is simple and can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. and you are able to resume your day with little interruption.”

Preventive BTX®

Botulinum is being used more and more frequently by people as a preventative treatment. Waiting until lines become etched into the skin means it’s much more difficult to smooth their appearance again. Facial wrinkles can be static (always present) or dynamic (only present during certain expressions). Most wrinkles start out as dynamic and over time become static. This process can be accelerated by habitual frowning, sun exposure, smoking, or genetics. Once wrinkles become static, it is impossible to make them invisible with Botox.

If you treat the wrinkles in the dynamic phase and prevent the creases from forming repeatedly, you can theoretically prevent or delay those permanent creases from forming.
Often by starting BTX treatment preventatively, people, and their muscles, can actually learn to not make certain faces and expressions and contribute to worsening their lines. By not making certain expressions in the future, or making them less often, you may actually need less BTX or need it less often.

Early BTX has several advantages:

1. The muscles that you treat grow weak over time and don’t create strong creases in the skin. This happens over years.
2. Muscle memory from the body results in you not using those muscles out of habit to create wrinkles so much over time
3. The wrinkles never develop in the first place.

“By repeatedly treating the wrinkles in the dynamic phase and prevent the creases from forming , you can theoretically prevent or delay permanent creases.”
