Botox Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. and here in Utah as well.
Botox in Utah is extremely helpful at removing unwanted aging lines and wrinkles in the forehead and near the eyes with crow’s feet. When considering your own Botox Cosmetic treatments, there are usually two things you should be mindful of: (1) know what treatment is most suitable to your specific cosmetic concern; and (2) seek help from the most capable surgeon to guide you and undertake your proper treatment.
Forehead Lines, Etc.
If you are developing forehead lines (vertical and horizontal) and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), don’t worry. You still have two main options to choose from: surgical lift or botox cosmetics. None of the options is inherently superior over the other in all aspects, as factors like the extent of your skin issue and your desired aesthetic goal should be put into consideration. That said, botox has been proven effective treatment against forehead lines, crow’s feet and early wrinkling signs.
A capable surgeon, like Utah facial plastic surgeon Dr. Scott K. Thompson, will guide you to make the best cosmetic choice.
Through a partial block of impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, botox cosmetics works on a temporary period. (The surgical treatment is generally considered to provide a longer-term solution.) Within 3 to 6 months, the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. On the part of untreated facial muscles, they continue to function and maintain normal facial expression.
Safe Since 1989
One of the best non-surgical face rejuvenation treatments today, botox cosmetics, is actually a protein serum used by surgeons to prevent and treat facial wrinkles triggered by underlying muscle contraction. In a short period of time, it can produce dramatic, albeit temporary, results. The U.S. FDA has approved it as a safe and effective therapy drug since 1989 – therefore, botox has been in general market usage for more than 20 years now.
Not for Everybody
But despite its seemingly “wonder drug” appeal, botox is definitely not for everybody. It has common side-effects like bruising. Botox cosmetics is not advisable for pregnant women and those individuals with neurological conditions. Dr. Thompson will help determine your suitability to botox treatment. During your consultation, report to the surgeon any medical condition, medications, or allergies you may have.
