It is interesting how a person has a different perception of getting older as they age. When a person is on the younger side, they look forward to getting older. They look forward to having more responsibility and more freedom. However, there usually comes a point when a person is satisfied with their age and they actually dread getting older. While a person may like the idea of gaining wisdom and experience as they get older, they do not like the idea of aging.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments that is currently available to help individuals look younger is BOTOX®. It uses a purified protein solution to take years off your appearance. The serum works to restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Other individuals are going to notice that your skin looks more smooth and taut. The results are subtle, but you will look more rejuvenated and relaxed.
BOTOX® injections can be done in the comfort of our office. The procedure takes about 15 or 20 minutes. The treatment will target your dynamic wrinkles and reduce them. Most people have dynamic wrinkles on their forehead, around the outer part of their eyes, and in the lower part of their face. The reason why these wrinkles form is because the muscles underneath contract every time an expression is made. As a person gets older, those wrinkles are etched onto their face.
You are not likely to see results immediately after the treatment. You will likely have a little bit of redness in the areas where the serum was injected. This irritation is going to go away after just a couple of hours. BOTOX® requires no downtime, so you can go back to all of your normal activities after injections.
Most individuals see results eight to twelve days after BOTOX® injections. You are going to notice that the skin on your face looks a lot smoother. To schedule a consultation, you can contact our office at About Face Medical Aesthetics. Your ability to contract facial muscles when making expressions will be reduced to prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. You will still be able to smile, frown, and make other normal expressions. However, your muscles will not tighten to the same intensity. Your skin is going to be smooth, and you will look much younger! Contact us today to make an appointment in Stratham!
