Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away, which means flowers need to be bought and reservations need to be made. However, that’s not all. To make sure that your Valentine’s Day is as special as you want it to be, you need to make sure that you are looking your absolute best. Unfortunately, the majority of men and women suffer from wrinkles and fine lines that can really distract from the natural aesthetic of their faces. The good news is that BOTOX® Cosmetic can eliminate unsightly wrinkles on your face. And the even better news is that you can see results immediately after your treatment session. But you need to make the first step and schedule your consultation today. Below, we will take a look at BOTOX® Cosmetic to help you understand just how effective and easy this treatment can be for you.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator, which means that it blocks nerves from sending messages to the brain. This is important for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles because dynamic wrinkles are caused by consistent muscle contractions. When specific muscles move, lines in the skin can form, and unfortunately there is no natural way to keep these wrinkles from appearing. So, whether you smile, frown, or squint. You will inevitably see wrinkles and lines on your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes (crow’s feet).
Botulinum toxin A is the active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic. The BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is injected directly into the muscle, which blocks specific movement in the muscle and skin. This means that you can achieve smoother skin in no time at all. In fact, most BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments take 15 minutes to complete. So, you can literally get the skin on your face ready for your big date during your lunch break.
What to Expect After Your BOTOX® Cosmetic Session
While you will see improvement to the appearance of your skin immediately following your treatment session, it is important to understand that you may have slight swelling and bruising at the injection site. This is why it is important to give yourself enough time (usually two to three days) to allow your skin to heal completely. Additionally, it is necessary that patients understand that BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a long lasting treatment. Instead, you will be able to enjoy your stunning results for three to four months before needing a maintenance treatment. However, with regular treatments, you can enjoy your results for as little or as long as you desire.
This Valentine’s Day, make sure that your significant other sees you at your very best!
