A wide variety of factors can impact the appearance of your skin and make you look much older than you really are. That includes ongoing stress, your age, exposure to sunlight, and even the beauty products that you use every day. While you can take some steps to protect your skin, there may come a point when it feels like you are fighting a losing battle. BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Vancouver and elsewhere, and this injectable can help you quickly restore your appearance by erasing age-related blemishes.
What is BOTOX®?
This injectable has been approved by the FDA to treat a variety of age-related blemishes including fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. It has been used in the medical industry for many years to treat involuntary muscle twitches. Some of the doctors who originally used this product started to realize that wrinkles near the injections sites would quickly disappear. After extensive research, those doctors were able to refine the injectable for cosmetic use.
Many patients don’t realize that there are actually different types of wrinkles, and these blemishes can be caused by internal and external factors. Some wrinkles are the result of sun damage while others take place when facial muscles become rigid. Wrinkles that are caused by tense facial muscles tend to be unresponsive to most dermal fillers, but BOTOX® treats the root of the problem. Instead of filling in the wrinkles, BOTOX® injections relax the facial muscles. After a short period of time, the lines will fade away as the skin moves back into the correct position.
The Benefits of BOTOX®
There are many different reasons why patients in Vancouver choose BOTOX® over other injectables. Unlike some collagen-based fillers, the results are very natural-looking. You might notice changes to your face within just a day or two, and those results often last for well over four months. The treatments are convenient and non-surgical.
