What is Botox and What are the Benefits?
Botox Treatments in San Diego
Although a variety of factors contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles, muscle contractions play an integral role. Repeated facial expressions, such as smiling, squinting and frowning cause muscles in your face to contract, resulting in wrinkles and furrows in the skin. After many years, these wrinkles and lines are noticeable even when the muscles are at rest. Since the introduction of non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox Cosmetic, the visual signs of aging can now be significantly reduced. At Laser Clinique, our Botox San Diego experts can help you rejuvenate your skin and revitalize your appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is a treatment that reduces the signs of aging and is directly injected into specific facial muscles. It contains a purified protein derivative that blocks nerve signals that are responsible for controlling muscle activity. This temporarily reduces the muscle contractions that cause moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles to form.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
One of the primary benefits of Botox Cosmetic is that the injections can be used to relax wrinkles that occur on many parts of the face, including crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead creases and frown lines between the eyebrows. The resulting effect is a marked improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles. Within days, your skin will be smoother and more youthful. Results achieved can last up to four months.
Botox injections are also non-invasive and you can usually resume your normal activities following the procedure. Since the procedure is non-surgical, you do not have to be concerned about a lengthy recovery period or noticeable scars afterward. For enhanced skin rejuvenation, Botox Cosmetic is compatible with other treatments and can be combined with other procedures, including chemical peels, laser rejuvenation and dermal fillers.
