Lots of people are interested in the benefits that come from having a facelift done. A facelift can help to reduce sagging skin, remove deep creases that appear in the face and essentially make a person look years younger. However, when a person starts to learn about the facelift procedure, they very quickly see that it is quite drastic.
During the facelift procedure, incisions are often made all the way along the hairline from the temples down to the back of the scalp. Recovering from a facelift requires quite a bit of downtime. For individuals who feel that they are not ready for a facelift, BOTOX® may be the perfect solution to help them eliminate the signs of aging.
BOTOX® has been able to help millions of individuals to enjoy a much younger, fresher appearance. It is used to temporarily smooth out facial wrinkles. This product works by relaxing muscles in the face. When a person’s facial muscles do not contract, the skin on top of them stays smooth. This means that crow’s feet, upper lip lines, neck bands, frown lines and forehead creases disappear. When a person makes normal facial expressions, like when they laugh or smile, they no longer experience dynamic wrinkles.
The Best BOTOX® Candidates
The very best way for a person to determine if they are a good candidate for BOTOX® is to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic surgeon. First, she is going to look at your overall health and explain exactly how BOTOX® will improve your appearance. BOTOX® candidates should be between the ages of 18 and 65. They need to be individuals who have dynamic wrinkles that are regularly treated with BOTOX®.
If a person is dealing with static wrinkles, which naturally occur as a person ages and loses collagen and hyaluronic acid in their skin, other treatment options could be better for them. Our medical professionals will help you to get a good understanding of the expectations you should have for treatment.
BOTOX® was approved by the FDA in the year 2002. Most individuals walk away from treatment with a rejuvenated and youthful look. They are able to get some of the benefits that would come from a facelift, but they do not have to go through an invasive surgery or take a lot of time to recover.
