The cumulative effects of repeated facial expressions, skin changes due to age, and lifestyle habits like smoking can result in a face that you barely recognize as yours. The good news is that you do not have to turn to surgery to restore youthfulness. Millions of people each year look to BOTOX® Cosmetic to rejuvenate their facial features and look as young as they feel.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lisa Hunsicker is passionate about matching each patient she sees with the safest and most effective treatment options available. For stubborn lines and wrinkles, she often recommends BOTOX® Cosmetic as it has minimal risks and a long track record of success.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, a substance that temporarily blocks nerve signals, allowing targeted muscles to relax. There are many non-surgical approaches that can take years off your face, yet BOTOX® Cosmetic is significantly more popular than other injectable options.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, botulinum toxin procedures topped the charts for most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in 2018. Here are several reasons that practitioners and patients continually turn to BOTOX® Cosmetic:
Often, the most noticeable wrinkles and creases appear in the upper portion of the face as a result of facial muscle contractions. BOTOX® Cosmetic is highly popular because it can smooth these moderate to severe lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is particularly effective for the following:
- Frown lines – vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles – horizontal lines across the forehead
- Crow’s feet – lines that extend from the corners of the eye in a crow’s foot-like pattern that are sometimes called laugh lines
Plastic surgery is often used to address signs of aging in the face. Facelifts, browlifts, necklifts, and eyelid surgery can correct many signs of aging. However, not everyone is ready to commit to surgery.
With BOTOX® Cosmetic, there are no incisions or anesthesia, and you will be able to drive yourself to and from the appointment. Dr. Hunsicker may recommend that you avoid select movements or strenuous exercise for several hours after the procedure to ensure that you achieve optimal results. Typically, you can return to most normal activities within hours of getting your injections.
It is easy to find time in your day to get a younger looking face with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Administering the injection generally takes less than 30 minutes. Since there is no anesthetic involved, you are able to continue on with your day immediately after the treatment.
Fast and Predictable Results
With 15 years of clinical studies in the books, practitioners around the world trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver great outcomes in a short time. You do not have to wait several weeks for recovery and healing before you see the effects. Your results may be visible in as quick as a day or two after your injections and can last 3-4 months.
