Aging presents symptoms that can range from minor irritations to major problems. These features can detract from the overall beauty of your face, make you look older than you are, and damage your self-image.
The worst part is that repairing the fine lines and wrinkles that result from aging can be more than just a hassle.
BOTOX® represents one of the better ways to repair minor to moderate age-related damage to the face. It can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve your appearance, and prevent further degeneration of your skin.
How Does BOTOX® Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
To understand how BOTOX® works, you must first understand how fine lines and wrinkles develop in the skin. Beneath the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, there is a layer of collagen that acts as a foundation for your skin. This gives it the shape that you see.
Under that collagen is a layer of fat and muscle. As the muscle deforms from smiling, frowning or any type of movement, the collagen layers begin to deform. This is why fine lines and wrinkles tend to develop at the point where your muscles move and stretch your skin upon your face.
BOTOX® works by interfering with the neural impulses that tell your muscles to tighten. This causes the muscles to relax.
BOTOX® can quickly treat imperfections by acting in this way. Your underlying collagen can repair itself. The treatment can also protect your skin from developing further imperfections for a period of six months.
Understanding the Cosmetic Benefits of BOTOX®
BOTOX® brings numerous benefits. These include:
- Immediate rejuvenation of the face
- The disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Protection against future imperfections developing
- No recovery or downtime
- A more natural restoration that lacks scars
- The ability to move your muscles in ways that doesn’t damage your appearance
It’s important to realize that these are just the start of what BOTOX® can do. While this treatment can repair individual cases of fine lines and wrinkles, it may be able to do more when combined with other treatments.
