When our skin begins to age, it starts to show fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. These are often the first signs of aging noticed by men and women. However, just because time is moving forward doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve a more youthful appearance. While we can’t completely stop the process of aging, there are a variety of ways in which patients in Virginia can achieve a more youthful appearance with surgeries and non-invasive alternatives such as cosmetic injectables. One popular injectable asked for by name is that of Botox cosmetic.
What is Botox cosmetic?
Botox has been a household name for years. This neuromodulator is a specialized injection that is used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face. Botox cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles of the face that contract and cause the formation of wrinkles. The most common dynamic wrinkles found on the face include:
- The glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead folds and wrinkles
- Wrinkles around the eyes, known as “crow’s feet”
When Botox cosmetic is injected into the muscles of the face, it can reduce contractions. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds known to contribute to an aged appearance. With just one appointment, many men and women can turn back time, erasing years off of their appearance and slowing the otherwise unstoppable signs of aging.
