Most individuals who live in the San Diego area are concerned about their health. They want to enjoy good health in order to have energy, avoid serious health problems, and live the longest life possible. Another aspect of wanting good health is trying to stay looking as youthful as possible for as long as possible. While a good diet, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle contribute to looking youthful, there usually comes a point when people start seeking cosmetic treatments to minimize wrinkles and combat the aging process. We would like to tell you how BOTOX® could benefit you.
The first thing that you should know is that BOTOX® will only address dynamic wrinkles on your face and neck. It is not going to help with things like a loss of facial volume, saggy lips, scars, or hollow cheeks. It is a treatment that relaxes the facial muscles, which lets the skin that sits right on top of them relax. It will only minimize wrinkles that have come about as a result of making facial expressions.
One area where this treatment has proven to be especially effective is at the outer corners of the eyes. It is common for people to experience what are commonly referred to as crow’s feet. These come about as a person gets older and smiles and squints thousands of times throughout their life. These become even more pronounced as a person spends time in the sun. Individuals who have moderate crow’s feet may be able to completely say goodbye to them after a couple of injections of BOTOX®. Individuals who have more severe crow’s feet will likely notice that they are less obvious after treatment.
BOTOX® is an effective treatment. If you want to address dynamic wrinkles, this treatment will give you results. The reason it is so effective is because it actually gets to the root of the problem. It goes all the way to the muscles. When a person uses over-the-counter creams and serums to address dynamic wrinkles, they don’t get good results because the muscles are not affected.
Treatment sessions are quick. Most individuals can be out in and out of our San Diego office in less than 30 minutes. Follow-up treatments are even shorter. And since you are not likely to need any downtime, you can just get right back to normal life after your treatment is over. You may decide to schedule a session in our office during a work break.
It is good to have realistic expectations for what BOTOX® injections will do for you. You will see results, but you should not expect to look years younger. Instead of thinking that you will look like you are 18 years old again, it is better to think of this treatment as helping you look your best for your age.
