Botox: Just a Little Does a Whole Lot

We’ve all heard the pros and cons about Botox. Our professional staff uses Botox sparingly and artfully making it a relaxing procedure with noticeable results. Wrinkles relax, leaving you looking younger and well-rested.

Botox is actually one of the many trade names for the neurotoxic protein called botulinum toxin. Used in small, diluted amounts, Botox essentially paralyzes the muscles that cause those pesky wrinkles.

As an added bonus, it’s easy to control. Do you like the way the crow’s feet next to your eyes curve upward, but hate the furrow between your brows? You can fix one while leaving the other.

In defense of this cosmetic miracle we call Botox, we’ve compiled this list of reasons why we like it:

Botox involves no incisions, stitches or scarring. A wise woman once offered this piece of advice, “Start early and don’t do anything drastic. Upkeep now is the best way to avoid major surgery later.” Botox helps us do that.

As our faces age our eyebrows gradually lose their arch. Strategically placed, Botox can lift those eyebrows, giving us a more youthful appearance.

Botox usually last from four to six months, meaning the results are temporary. If you’re not crazy about it, you’re not committed for life. Wouldn’t it be nice if all our relationships came with no strings attached?

As compared to other cosmetic procedures, Botox is relatively inexpensive. You can work it into your budget by determining how often you want to receive injections.

Botox comes with minor and temporary side effects, generally nothing more than bruising and swelling.

Botox is popular and utilized often. Of all the fillers offered, Botox is one of the most common.

Botox offers quick results for the impatient patient. Within four to seven days of receiving Botox, it’s as if the wrinkles melt away.

The Food and Drug Administration originally approved Botox for non-cosmetic problems such as headaches, eye-twitching, and extreme cases of sweating. Don’t you just love it when something that makes you look good can also make you feel good?
