More and more people are turning to BOTOX® Cosmetic to turn back the hands of time. Non-surgical and efficient, this treatment is ideal for those seeking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Here at Worcester Dermatology, we are proud to offer this time-honored aesthetic treatment and encourage you to learn more about it.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein serum. When strategically injected, this substance temporarily paralyzes muscle movements. This allows the fine lines and wrinkles in the area to relax. BOTOX® Cosmetic is highly effective for treating moderate to severe:
- Forehead Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
This treatment works so well on these types of wrinkles because they are caused by repetitive muscle movements. When these muscles stop moving, the face has a chance to relax. The injections are made in a very targeted way to ensure you can still make a full range of facial movements.
It takes a few days for the active ingredient to stop muscle movements. Typically, people notice their wrinkles smoothing out one week after treatment. The improvements can last for a matter of months. At this time, muscle movements will resume and the dynamic wrinkles reappear if you choose not to have a follow-up treatment.
Who is BOTOX® Cosmetic For?
At one time, BOTOX® Cosmetic had a reputation for being something only for elderly women. Now, more and more women and men in their 30s and 40s are taking advantage of this revolutionary treatment. Dynamic wrinkles show up at different times for different people. There is no reason to put off treatment if you are noticing wrinkles and would like to do something about it!
