The ravages of time are inescapable. Even those with the healthiest skin, living under the least strenuous circumstances in a healthy environment, will eventually develop wrinkles. Any natural movement of a facial muscle, such as a simple smile or a mildly irritated frown, will stretch the skin over the top and cause wrinkles in the corners of the mouth, around the eyes and on the forehead. Add to that the relentlessness of sun exposure, particularly in the ever cloudless skies of Southern California, and the additional stress of a modern lifestyle, and the face doesn’t stand a chance.
Luckily, though aging is inescapable, it is not irreversible. The skilled doctors and technicians of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group have a variety of tools on hand to help rid you of unwanted wrinkles. BOTOX injections, in particular, are perfectly suited to fighting the ravages of time.
As the cosmetic form of the significantly diluted botulinum toxin, BOTOX injections are a non-surgical method of relaxing and softening the skin over the affected muscles. In just a matter of a few hours, the injections reduce the deep lines and creased wrinkles found on the forehead, in the corner of the mouth and the eyes, providing smoother skin that looks revitalized and refreshed.
The benefits of cosmetic BOTOX injections don’t stop at rejuvenating your appearance. The focus on muscle relaxation provides some added benefits, such as successfully relieving migraine headaches, fighting such ailments as blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (also known as lazy eye), reducing uncontrolled muscle spasms in the neck, and reducing excessive underarm sweating.
BOTOX injections cause only minor discomfort and are so relatively painless that no anesthesia is required. This remarkably effective procedure takes only a matter of minutes to administer. Contact our offices for more information on how BOTOX injections can help you rejuvenate your skin.
