Smooth those frowns away with Botox
It is not only your emotions that show on your face. Every time you smile or frown, the facial muscles you use begin to create fine lines and wrinkles that can make you look tired and older than your true age. The solution for more than two million people in the US each year is to have injections of Botox.
Originally developed to treat medical conditions, such as migraines and the muscle spasms caused by cerebral palsy, in 2002 Botox was approved by the FDA for cosmetic procedures. Furrows in the forehead, brows or around the eyes that are caused by habitual creasing of the skin by the underlying muscles are eradicated by injecting Botox in those areas. Botox is also effective on the ‘bands’ that develop on the neck and can even help if you have a problem with sweating. It is the only treatment for forehead wrinkles that addresses the actual cause of the wrinkle (the muscle), instead of simply masking the lines.
How Botox works
Botox is a kind of botulinum toxin, which paralyzes the underlying muscle where it is injected, preventing the repetitive movements that crease the overlying skin. It is essential to consult a reputable and qualified plastic surgeon when considering having Botox injections. Dr. Racanelli offers a comprehensive range of injectable treatments, including Botox, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, and Xeomin. He will discuss with you the pros and cons of each of these products. Once he has ascertained that Botox will achieve your aims, he uses extremely fine needles to keep discomfort to a minimum. The treatment takes approximately a quarter of an hour, with visible results within 14 days. The effects last approximately three to four months, but with regular and repeated treatments the results can be extended even longer.
