Many Bay Area residents use injectable cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance, and reduce the signs of age. Wrinkles, deep furrows, and sagging skin, are just a few of the skin issues that injectable treatments are used to address. Botox is perhaps the most widely used injectable medicine of them all, but dermal fillers are also very popular.
Botox has become a ‘gold standard’ in the anti-aging industry, because of its ability to soften age-related lines and wrinkles. Frown lines and crow’s feet often develop due to the over activity of the facial muscles, especially those around the brows and the eyes.
Botox Cosmetic or botulinum toxin A is a prescription only drug. In cosmetics circles it is used as a communication blocker. It temporarily interrupts the normal transmission that takes place between the nerves and the muscles. Generally, the muscles contract in response to nerve signals. However when these are blocked, the muscles will not contract as a result of facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. This gives the muscles a chance to relax, thereby causing existing lines to soften, and preventing new ones fromforming.
In the Bay Area, botox is the most requested of all the injectable treatments available to clients. It is a safe and effective way to treat facial lines and wrinkles, and it only takes about 10 minutes to complete the procedure.
Botox is recommended for individuals that wish to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The effects of treatment generally last from 3-6 months, so touch-ups will be needed to maintain the more youthful look. The results with botox look very natural. This is the main reason why Bay Area residents continue to turn to this injectable treatment for help, with age-related facial lines.
