Botox treatments for the summer season
Botox treatments are ideal for the summer season. This is the time of year when the days are longest, and the weekends are longer. There is plenty of social activity during the summer months as social calendars are filled with weddings, parties, vacations, and special events. This is why it makes sense that in the summer months you want to ensure that you look your best. Diet and exercise routines can help get your body in great shape, but it can be a little harder to keep yourself looking wrinkle free. To ensure that compliments on your appearance will be flowing freely, then you may want to consider Botox treatments.
What is Botox?
What is Botox? It is the purified form of botulinum toxin. It has been FDA approved for wrinkles between the eyebrows. It is also used to treat wrinkles and lines in other areas such as crow’s feet, across the forehead, around the mouth, and on the neck. Botox blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine, which inhibits muscle movement, relaxing and smoothing the skin above muscle. It may surprise you to know that Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure in the U.S.
How does it work?
Botox® injections are a great procedure for reducing or eliminating winkles and frown lines on the face and neck. In controlled, targeted doses, Botox is used to help smooth out lines and wrinkles. Botox is relatively fast working, which means that you will notice some improvement to your skin within ten days. Ideally, you want to schedule a Botox treatment a couple of weeks prior to a special event. The Botox effectiveness is temporary. The results from the treatment will wear off after three to five months. Fortunately, the patient can then choose to repeat the treatment if she so desires. Botox is not suitable for absolutely everyone, to determine how to get the best results, it is important to discuss all your options with a board-certified plastic surgeon beforehand.
