Like most people, Worcester and surrounding residents want to look their best. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. When we look our best, we tend to feel our best. But one thing that can make us look and feel less than our best is the presence of facial wrinkles. Thankfully, there have been cosmetic procedures invented in the past few decades that have allowed people to address common signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. One of the most popular and most powerful advances in cosmetic medicine is BOTOX® Cosmetic.
The vast majority of people out there have at least heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic. But what many people don’t know is that it is a purified protein solution that can serve as a neural inhibitor. What this means is that it prevents some of the signals that are transmitted from your nerves from reaching your muscles. As a result, your muscles become temporarily relaxed.
Now, contrary to some of the myths you might’ve heard, BOTOX® Cosmetic does not make your face numb. You will still have the same sensation and feeling in your face that you did before. This product does not affect your sensory nerves. And, contrary to popular belief, BOTOX® Cosmetic is not going to leave you with a frozen face. You are going to be able to express all of the same emotions that you did before the treatment.
The only thing that is going to change is that your facial muscles are not going to contract as hard. So, although you’ll be able to smile or express sadness and other emotions, expressing these emotions will not lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles in the treated areas. As your skin is allowed to rest, any of the creases that you may have developed in your skin from years of dynamic wrinkles start to go away.
One of the beautiful things about BOTOX® Cosmetic is just how natural the results look. When the treatment is administered by a skilled professional like the ones at Worcester Dermatology Associates and Chelmsford Dermatology Associates, your friends and family members will notice that you have a lot less wrinkles, but they won’t know that you have had a treatment done.
