Botox: An Injectable Solution To Age Lines

Published on March 17, 2020

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity due to consistent laughing, smiling, furrowing and a whole lot of several other facial expressions over the years; your skin folds and fails to recover.

Even though wrinkles and age lines on your face are normal symptoms of aging, you might find them hamper your self-confidence. Many a time, these age lines can come in the way of your professional and personal growth. Botox can be the solution to this problem.

Botox is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that works wonders for people experiencing age lines. Cosmetic professionals across the world advise Botox to eliminate or smooth out the wrinkles. It is an injectable treatment wherein quick and small shots of multiple injections are administered over the target areas within a few minutes.

Botox is actually refined neurotoxins that are produced by a naturally occurring bacterium. The brand is widely popular and familiar to most people out there. When the neurotoxins are administered into the facial skin tissues, they work to relax the muscles, providing you a rejuvenated and transformed look. Full results can be noticed within a week after receiving the treatment.

With Botox, you can obtain:

A smoother facial skin
A youthful appearance due to reduced or eliminated age lines
Relaxed facial muscles
Increased confidence levels

If you hate those upsetting age lines and want to look younger and energetic, a Botox treatment is for you. Start looking for a certified cosmetic expert right away and schedule an appointment to discuss the extent of ‘smoothness’ you wish to obtain.

    Blepharoplasty is utilized to repair sagging eyelid skin and correct unsightly fat pads. Depending on the nature of the issue, excess skin, redundant muscle, and bulging fat pads can be cosmetically corrected in order to restore a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the eyes. CO2 Laser can be used simultaneously with this procedure to remove unwanted skin growths and improve sun damaged skin.

    Chemical Peel

    The precise formulas in peels vary and the type utilized is personally adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
