Wrinkles are a common physical trait for many millions of people. Unfortunately, they often tend to make people look older than they are; this can cause a downturn in self-esteem and an unpleasant uptick in self-consciousness. Fortunately, San Diego BOTOX® Cosmetic injections offer an FDA-approved solution to those who wish to regain a fresher, more youthful appearance. At Restore SD Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer this celebrated solution that has helped countless individuals reprise their younger looks.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein solution used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles in various areas of the face. This substance is used to inhibit nerve signals that prompt certain facial muscles to move. When a person smiles, frowns, or squints, the muscles involved contract and move the skin above them; over time, natural elasticity loss can create creases in the skin. Typical wrinkles include glabellar (frown) lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic injection treatment is a safe, simple, and minimally-invasive process. The protein solution works by temporarily calming the local muscles so they don’t contract and form wrinkles in the skin. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment, and effects can last for multiple months.
