For a real uplifting holiday this year, consider a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic. BOTOX is one of the most popular non-invasive plastic surgery procedures available because its effects last for months and, with repeat treatments, it can even permanently remove certain facial wrinkles altogether.
At the Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas, Dr. Jeneby offers BOTOX Cosmetic treatments to help you look your best around the holidays, and every day. To schedule your appointment with Dr. Jeneby, or to find out if BOTOX is right for you, contact Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas today.
BOTOX has been marketed as a facial wrinkle remover since 2002, when it was approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration for use as a cosmetic. In 2014, more than three million people underwent BOTOX injections. More than 80 percent of patients saw results within one week of treatment.
This holiday season, BOTOX can smooth and lift wrinkled, sagging facial skin for a fresher, more radiant look, and, since results last between three and six months, the beauty will last long after the holidays are over.
The Eyes Have It
BOTOX is extremely effective for upper face rejuvenation, and one of the most popular areas for treatment is the eyes. Injections can reduce the appearance of those aging crows’ feet at the corner of eyes, melting years off the overall appearance of the face.
Another way BOTOX can freshen up the eye area is through injections underneath the lateral parts of the eyebrows. This particular treatment creates a temporary lateral brow lifting effect that opens up and brightens the eyes.
Horizontal wrinkles, or worry lines, on the forehead can age a face. BOTOX is effective at temporarily smoothing out these lines for a fresher appearance. BOTOX works by blocking nerve stimulation of muscles where injected, thus prohibiting muscle contraction.
Deep, vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows create a look of permanent anger or displeasure. Commonly called frown or scowl lines, these furrows can become permanent if the muscles are repeatedly contracted for a long time (an excellent reason to practice keeping the face relaxed and avoiding prolonged, extreme expressions).
BOTOX, however, can lessen these frown lines right away and, for some patients, after repeated treatment frown lines may completely disappear. This results may occur because BOTOX inhibits muscle contraction, so the muscles between the brows stay more relaxed, creating a smoother appearance.
The area around the lips is susceptible to small, vertical lines that can really age a face. BOTOX can soften these lines on both upper and lower lips, making skin around the mouth look fresher and smoother.
Don’t Sweat It
BOTOX can even help holiday celebrants keep their cool. The FDA has approved BOTOX to treat excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) when topical deodorants and treatments do not work well enough.
Long used for medical purposes, BOTOX Cosmetic can soften lines, wrinkles, and even deeper furrows all over the face, creating a more youthful appearance. The actual injection procedure only lasts about 30 minutes, but the effects may last up to six months. So go ahead and let BOTOX give smooth, fresh skin and a younger-looking face for the holidays. And rest assured that this is one gift that will last long after the Christmas tree comes down and the decorations are packed away.
