So, you have been thinking about Botox, right?
Maybe you looked in the mirror and noticed some unwanted crow’s feet or laugh lines. You look older than you feel, and you would like to change that, but you are not really sure what Botox really is all about. Dr. Michael Jasin, a plastic surgeon in Tampa, Fl, explains more about Botox:
First of all, Botox isn’t going to make you puffy, plastic or “freeze your face up” as is often portrayed on TV. Botox is a safe prescription drug that has been used for over 15 years on millions of men and women to reduce moderate to severe facial lines. It works best in the upper portion of the face to reduce frown lines between the eyes, crows feet, and brow lines or forehead furrows.
The medicine is injected into the muscles of the face and it blocks nerve impulses that cause wrinkles to form. It takes only a few days before the effects start to take place and it lasts for up to 6 months. While it doesn’t radically change your facial appearance, it works to relax the muscles and restore a younger but very natural look. It is one of the most affordable ways to improve your appearance and it really works like a magic eraser.
One caution, don’t trust your face to just anyone. Choose a facial surgeon or other qualified medical doctor who is highly trained to perform this non-invasive procedure. They know exactly where and how to inject Botox to receive optimal results. Why trust your face to anyone else?
