What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an effective way to battle those fine lines and wrinkles that can result from age, stress, environmental factors, and worry. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a naturally occurring protein that works to block nerve signals in facial muscles to stop muscle contractions. These muscle contractions can occur repeatedly over time and cause wrinkles and fine lines. By stopping the nerve signals in the facial muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic causes the muscles to relax which will help the skin in those areas to flatten. This flattened skin creates a more youthful, relaxed appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dermal Fillers?
When considering removing fine lines and wrinkles, you may find yourself wondering which you’d choose in the matchup between BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by preventing muscle contractions causing the skin to smooth while dermal fillers are injected into the skin to plump the treated area. This plumping can help restore facial volume for a youthful look. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used in the following areas:
- Small wrinkles around the eyes
- Forehead lines
- Creases between the eyebrows
- Wrinkles and lines around the mouth
Dermal fillers are typically used in the following areas:
- The lines that run between the base of your nose and the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds)
- The area under the eyes
- To plump up the cheeks
- To add volume to thin lips
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic for You?
If you’re in the Glendale, Arizona area and are considering BOTOX® Cosmetic as an injectable form of skin rejuvenation, Dr. Angelchik can help you determine if you’re a good candidate. The ideal candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic is anyone between the ages of 18-65 that has the desire to be rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic does require multiple injections and rounds of treatment, so an ideal candidate must be willing to go through several short appointments. If that hot Glendale sun has begun to showcase the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, it might be time to consider BOTOX® Cosmetic.
