While fine lines and wrinkles are often seen as a normal part of the aging process, they do not have to be something that you live with for the rest of your life. Instead, with expert BOTOX® treatments at Restore SD in San Diego, you can erase these fine lines and wrinkles and delete years from the age of your skin. BOTOX® has been and continues to be the most popular and most frequently used cosmetic treatment. This is no wonder because it truly is one of the simplest and most effective options for the initial signs of skin aging.
How is BOTOX used to smooth wrinkles?
While BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, you should know that it is only used in very tiny doses in the facial muscles to produce the desired effects. When injected into the small upper muscles of the face, it tells the nerves to no longer fire, stopping the muscles from contracting and allowing the skin lying over them to stay smooth. The goal of our San Diego team is to create natural results you love.
BOTOX® in San Diego works best on fine lines and wrinkles that only show up in your face when you are making a facial expression. These are called expression lines and they are typically nonexistent when your face is at rest. If these expression lines remain untreated for too long of a time, they will begin to settle into your skin and will be present even when your face is at rest.
Is BOTOX® permanent?
BOTOX® is not permanent – however, as long as you use BOTOX®, these lines stay smooth. Therefore, you will want to continue to have these treatments regularly so that your lines and wrinkles do not come back and so that new wrinkles cannot form.
Although BOTOX® is an excellent choice for numerous individuals who are showing the beginning signs of aging on the skin, it may not be for everyone. We recommend that you have a complete consultation with one of our practitioners before undergoing your first treatment. We will examine your skin tone and your problem areas while also asking about your skin care goals so that we can get you started on best treatment for you.
