Although aging is a fact of life there are a number of methods to combat the noticeable effects of aging on the face. These methods include a number of plastic surgery procedures that target either the entire face or neck, as well as other procedures that address the mouth, eye area, lips and the brow. While these procedures are very effective in alleviating the signs of aging, they are surgical procedures that require recovery as the surgical site heals. An alternative therapy is available in the form of Botox injections, which is often used in conjunction with various other skin rejuvenation procedures, to reduce the visible signs of aging.
The treatment is a quick and painless procedure with no recovery period and provides results within a couple of days of the treatment! During Botox treatment, the highly trained plastic surgeon will inject Botox into critical areas, which diminishes the patient’s wrinkles. One of the more popular treatment areas include the brow and lips, which tend to sag as a person ages. When properly administered, the Botox relaxes the muscles and actually lifts the outer brow and the corners of the lip. In general, patient’s who receive the treatment early at the onset of the visible aging process see better results than those patients that have more advanced signs of aging.
Women as well as men will appreciate the results provided by Botox treatment, as it is fast, effective and provides great results. In addition, patients appreciate the fact that there is no downtime associated with the procedure and their daily lives are not disrupted by Botox treatments!
