Feeling comfortable in your skin is the foundation for positive self-esteem. Fine lines and wrinkles can lead to a feeling of disconnect between body, mind, and soul when you feel young and vibrant but your skin tells a different story. If you’re struggling with these common feelings, Botox® might be right for you. Botox provides a myriad of benefits for those seeking to smooth mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
1. Botox is a versatile treatment
Botox Cosmetic is a versatile treatment. At NOVA Plastic Surgery, we use Botox Cosmetic to address several very common problem areas: the frown lines that develop between your eyebrows, horizontal wrinkles on your forehead, smile lines around your mouth, and the crow’s feet that develop at the outer corner of the eyes. Botox can also be used to suppress migraines, reduce pain, and alleviate discomfort caused by TMJ. This gives you the opportunity to address multiple problem areas with a single solution in a single appointment.
These photos illustrate the versatile nature of this treatment so you can clearly see the changes patients experience when they seek Botox for frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines.
2. Botox is minimally invasive
The minimally invasive nature of Botox Cosmetic provides a number of benefits:
- Botox Cosmetic is safe for many patients who aren’t good candidates for surgery because of medical conditions.
- There is virtually no recovery after the treatment; side effects are usually mild and resolve quickly.
- Botox is often a good solution for patients who want to look younger and feel more confident but aren’t willing to undergo or don’t need cosmetic surgery.
- Botox Cosmetic is safer than any invasive surgical procedure.
3. Botox is long-lasting
Botox treatments last 3-6 months, which means patients can schedule their treatment and then forget about frown lines and crow’s feet for months. This is much easier than most beauty routines, such as moisturizing and covering with makeup, which can require daily commitment and attention.
These photos illustrate the changes that occur in one patient over a six-month period. No two patients have the same experience with Botox, so the best way to determine how long your treatment will last is to measure your own results.
4. Botox produces natural results
Many patients share that they want their results to be subtle and natural, which can be achieved with Botox. Wrinkles improve gradually and come back gradually, so there is never an overnight change that would hint at cosmetic work. Instead, patients often hear compliments like, “You’re simply glowing!”
These photos illustrate the natural results patients achieve with Botox Cosmetic. You’ll notice some fine lines disappear completely, and deeper wrinkles will become less noticeable. As Botox wears off over time, note that fine lines and wrinkles return slowly and gradually.
NOVA Plastic Surgery offers Botox for a wide range of different patients and purposes. Whether your goal is to look younger, appear less tired, or correct some specific aspect of your appearance, we have the experience and expertise to help you achieve it.
