Some beauty experts are of the opinion that our skin, especially on the face, begins to show signs of aging as early as in our twenties. For most people, this is way too young to have skin that’s showing stress and strain of time. If you live in West Palm Beach, exposure to the hot sun and other elements can cause your skin to lose its elasticity, become brittle and begin to wrinkle. Moisturizers can help for some time, but with advancing age and other problems such as hormonal imbalance and poor diet, the situation with aging skin can get worse. Thankfully, BOTOX® exists.
Crow’s feet, frown and smile lines and wrinkles on the forehead may make you quite uncomfortable in your own skin. The good news is that there is a simple and easy to use solution that can quickly and efficiently restore the youthful look to your facial features. BOTOX® is a well-known and effective remedy for lines and wrinkles on your face. Results that most of our clients see are satisfactory and last for a while.
What Happens During BOTOX® Treatments?
BOTOX® in West Palm Beach is performed in just minutes. The strength, depth, and size of the muscles around the treatment area are examined so that the treating specialist can determine the correct dosage to use. A purified protein solution is then injected into the preselected muscles. It is the BOTOX® injection that blocks the transmission of nerve signals to the treatment area.
The muscles in the treatment area become relaxed and stay that way, which prevents wrinkling. The full effect of the injected fluid takes a few days to be seen and the treated muscles get used to being relaxed. The patient still has a sense of touch in the treatment areas and can still make facial expressions but without the fine lines forming.
Am I a Good Candidate?
This treatment is ideal for adults in West Palm Beach who have fine lines around the eyes, and severe or moderate frown and smile lines around the mouth corners or on the forehead. All such dynamic wrinkles can be treated with BOTOX®. The treatments can be repeated as the effect wears off after some time, but future treatments typically use lower dosages of BOTOX® as the muscles get used to staying in a relaxed state.
