Four Signs That BOTOX® Cosmetic Is Right for You
Facial lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. Unfortunately, many patients find that creases develop much earlier than they would have expected. At our plastic surgery practice in Orange, CA, Dr. William C. Cohen offers several treatments to address facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments offered at our practice. BOTOX Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. Here we go over some four common signs that indicate BOTOX Cosmetic may be right for you.
1. You Have Unwanted Facial Wrinkles
Unwanted facial wrinkles are the most obvious sign that you may be an ideal candidate for BOTOX injections. BOTOX Cosmetic can treat all of the most common facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, vertical creases between the eyes, and horizontal wrinkles across the forehead. It doesn’t matter if these wrinkles are moderate or severe, BOTOX treatment can minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles or even make them disappear completely.
2. Wrinkles Are More Prominent When You Are Being Expressive
BOTOX injections are an effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle movement. If wrinkles are most prominent when a person is laughing, smiling, furrowing their brow, or making other facial expressions, it is likely that they have dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX injections treat dynamic wrinkles by preventing nerve signals from reaching the muscles, causing them to relax. This doesn’t mean that the patient’s face will look stiff or frozen, but it does prevent dynamic wrinkles from developing.
3. You Aren’t Ready for Plastic Surgery
There are many plastic surgery procedures that can tighten and lift the skin to treat facial wrinkles. However, these procedures are more invasive than cosmetic injections, they carry a higher degree of risk, and they require a longer recovery period. Although plastic surgery does offer numerous benefits, some people simply aren’t ready to commit to a serious surgical procedure.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a great alternative to plastic surgery. This treatment provides our Orange patients with the results they desire quickly and safely. Of course, BOTOX results do not last as long as plastic surgery results, so patients need to be prepared to schedule maintenance appointments.
4. You Have A Busy Schedule
Although many people are eager to address facial wrinkles, it can be difficult to fit cosmetic treatment into an already busy schedule. One thing that sets BOTOX Cosmetic apart from many other cosmetic treatments is how fast the procedure is. A typical BOTOX session is complete in well under an hour.
BOTOX injections also don’t require any downtime, which means our patients can immediately return to their usual routine. With fast treatment, virtually no recovery, and almost immediate results, BOTOX Cosmetic is an ideal option for those with even the busiest of schedules.
