There are a lot of positive things that come from growing older. With age comes wisdom, perception and discernment. At the same time, there are a lot of negative things that come from getting older. The majority of these negatives are associated with our appearance. Over the years, gravity takes a toll on our face, and our facial features may begin to sag. Wrinkles develop in our skin, and we lose facial volume.
Undoubtedly, you understand that there is no cosmetic procedure that is going to be able to completely reverse the aging process. However, you probably just want to look the best you can for your age. This may be one of the reasons why you are considering BOTOX®.
BOTOX® has proven itself for more than a decade to be an effective tool in the war against dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles that form on your face when you make facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles become more prominent as we age because our face loses volume. This means that our skin is closer to our muscles, and for this reason, every movement our muscles make has an impact on our skin.
BOTOX® helps to fight dynamic wrinkles by interrupting the signals that your nervous system sends to some of the muscles in your face. This does not mean that you will not be able to make facial expressions. BOTOX® does not leave people with a frozen appearance. However, what it does do is lessen the contractions that your facial muscles make. As a result, dynamic wrinkles are less prominent.
You may be asking yourself if you are a good candidate for BOTOX®. Well, if you are concerned about the effect wrinkles are having on your forehead, along the sides of your eyes, around your nose or around your mouth, then BOTOX® may be the right choice for you.
BOTOX® will not make you look like you did when you were 20. Its goal is to revitalize and refresh your appearance. By addressing dynamic wrinkles, it can make you look like a happier, better version of yourself. The best BOTOX® patients are those who have a realistic view of what the treatment can do for them.
The aging process has a lot of benefits. There are also a few downsides. BOTOX® is a powerful tool in minimizing the effect that those downsides have on your appearance.
