The Truth About Botox Therapies
There are many misconceptions concerning Botox®
(Botolunim Toxin-A) that people have concerning these
therapy treatments. Botox® is a medicine that relax muscles
by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine needed for
muscle contraction. It has been used for the past (25)
years to treat such medical conditions as cervical dystonia,
TMJ, and other neuromuscular disorders.
As you grow older your skin becomes less elastic due to
the loss of colagen and reduced vascularization of tissues.
Wrinkles (rhytids) occur when certain muscles become
more dominant and the skin does not have the ability to be
as elastic in response to these muscle contractions. In
addition, muscles become constrictive and naturally form
creases and rhytids . Dynamic rhytids (not a crease of the
skin) can be eliminated or lessened by relaxing the
dominant muscle as it competes against either an inferior
muscle or in constricting skin elasticity. This is why certain
patients of differing ages start to form wrinkles at different
times as compared to other individuals.
Because muscles of the face are relatively small, it is
necessary to introduce the medicine by injection so that
the exact placement and the effect is achieved. By introducing
the medicine into the exact muscle group responsible
for the wrinkling, various aesthetic enhancements can
be obtained in addition to elimination of the rhytids.
Wrinkles of the forehead, crows feet, frown lines, and eyebrow
shaping is easily achieved. Other specialty injections
for gummy smiles, dimpled chin, bunny lines, vertical lip
lines, and sad smile can be performed with Botox®.
Whatever your aesthetic needs, Botox® is a very safe
procedure. Depending upon your own metabolism and
receiving regular treatments it can last for (3) months or
longer. Our individualized treatments are painless and take
particular attention not to cause bruising and look natural.
See for yourself why we are the “experts” concerning
Botox® and Dermal Fillers and why we give results and not just treatments.
“Personally, I enjoy administering Botox® and Dermal Fillers for patients as the results are dramatic and patient satisfaction from the procedures is very high. Botox® and Dermal Fillers are the most popular of all of the non-surgical cosmetic procedures done in the United States. These maintenance procedures have grown in number by over 400% in the last (5) years despite increasing economic factors.
Patients want to look as good as they feel and many are doing
whatever possible to delay the effects of aging. Men and women
alike are taking advantage of the benefits they can achieve with
Botox® and Dermal Fillers. Young or old, it is never too early to
look your very best.”
