Would you guess that Botox can make you seem friendlier? It’s true. Do people say you look angry or unapproachable when you have your normal resting face? Frown lines, those wrinkles that occur on the forehead as you age, can make you look angry or unhappy even when you feel fine. The result can be that people think of you in a way that does not match your personality at all. Botox, which is one of the best-known and well-proven facial injections, can erase those lines, taking years off your facial appearance and taking away those severe frown lines between your eyebrows that can make you seem unhappy or angry.
You have probably wondered how Botox works and may have some concerns because Botox is classified as a neurotoxin. However, in therapeutic levels, Botox is safe to use. It works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. Because the muscle is not getting a message to contract, the wrinkles overlying the muscles relax and soften. While this does not completely eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, it can diminish wrinkles, making them seem much less severe. The results are dramatic on specific types of wrinkles, but Botox does not help wrinkles that are caused by gravity or sun damage. Almost all users see visible results within a month of treatment, and the results can last three to four months.
Botox is given through a series of injections. Though the process can sound intimidating, most patients report very minimal discomfort. If you’re worried about pain, you can ask for the nurse to use a local anesthetic or ice to minimize the feeling of the injection. In most patients, any discomfort ends after the injection is complete. To find out how Botox can help you look happier and younger, schedule a consultation at website in Carlsbad, today.
