Do frown lines have you looking less than pleased with your life? Do lines around your eyes and across your forehead have all of your friends and family members in Nashville, TN commenting on how you constantly look tired or upset? If so, you may be dealing with some of the initial signs of aging, which show up as expression lines across the face but disappear when your face is at rest. Thankfully, you do not have to live with these lines any longer but can instead turn to easy, minimally-invasive treatments with BOTOX® to help you look younger, more pleasant and more awake.
BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic treatment used around the world. It is made from a purified protein. It is FDA-approved to treat horizontal lines of the forehead, vertical grooves between the eyes and crow’s feet around the outer corners of the eyes. We can also use it for other cosmetic purposes, depending on the situation.
This treatment is incredibly safe and has been used without any incidence of serious side effects since 2000. When side effects do occur, they are usually mild and transient and disappear within an hour or two. This is one reason why so many busy adults in Nashville, TN love BOTOX® treatments. As for what is the right age, you should wait until at least the age of 18 to begin BOTOX® treatments.
Even the treatment itself is not difficult or highly uncomfortable. While it does require injections to place the BOTOX® in the small muscles of the face, there is absolutely no surgery involved. Most patients are very happy to hear this!
BOTOX® can eliminate your need for more invasive treatments, such as facelifts or brow lifts. However, you will need to have follow-up BOTOX® treatments regularly to maintain your results.
