Unfortunately, at some point during our lives, all of us will become familiar with the obvious and unavoidable signs that we have begun to age. The wrinkles that plague our face, the drooping skin and the lost jawline are just some of the symptoms that you might expect to see. However, sun damaged skin, brown spots, and fine wrinkles also go some way to ruining a youthful appearance.
In the past, treatments for such ailments have involved the use of chemical peels and surgery, but now CO2 laser resurfacing could be an option that allows individuals to avoid the expense and discomfort of going under the knife. With this innovative technology, renowned Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shoib A. Myint has begun to offer patients a non-invasive and easier way to reclaim their youth.
Wrinkles can be the result of various factors within a regular, active life. It’s not always about free radicals, collagen depletion or damage caused by cellular changes. Sometimes, when you concentrate, frown, or even laugh, the muscles around your face contract, causing skin to fold and furrow. When you squint, the skin around your eyes wrinkles into crow’s feet, and lines can appear on your brow.
However, if you and your best friend don’t want to have to give up laughing, smiling and living life to the fullest simply to avoid wrinkles, you might be searching for an alternative option. The BFF special on Botox that is currently running at Myint Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery could give you both the non-surgical treatment you want to stay smiling in the years to come.
What is Botox?
Botox is a purified form of something called ‘botulinum toxin A’, meaning that there should be little risk from botulism if used properly by a renowned facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. Shoib A. Myint. Because it works by freezing the muscles within the face, Botox was originally developed as a method of treating muscular spasms, particularly around the eyes. However, soon after its creation, Botox was discovered to be fantastic at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet.
With Botox at Myint Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, you can experience the benefits of a facelift without the surgery, as the substance relaxes the facial muscles that cause the wrinkling and lines that are typically associated with aging. Throughout the years, various facial expressions contribute to the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as the skin develops a memory while elasticity is reduced.
Many experts suggest that Botox is most effective on the wrinkles that have not set completely on the face. Dynamic wrinkles that only appear in the moments when you are moving your face and making expressions such as frowns can benefit highly from Botox, as if you do not move the muscle as much, you won’t form wrinkles in the first place.
What’s involved in a Botox Treatment?
When somebody decides to schedule a Botox treatment, they will have tiny injections administered into specific muscle groups throughout their face. The Botox then inhibits the neural transmission that exists between the muscle and the nerves, reducing wrinkles and creating a more youthful appearance. Often time, a facelift with Botox shows immediate results, and it can be a painless alternative to undergoing a surgery that requires some form of anesthesia.
Botox injections can be completed within thirty minutes or during your lunch break with your best friend, meaning that you can get back to normal life almost immediately. They also have minimal side effects, which usually occur in the form of minor swelling, soreness, and redness that disappears in a matter of days. The effects of a Botox face lift with Myint Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery can also last for several months, with the option to have another round of this treatment if the effects begin to fade.
