Four Signs BOTOX® Cosmetic Is Right for You
As we age, it’s common to feel like our face in the mirror looks much older than the person on the inside. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections smooth wrinkles and rejuvenate the appearance to help patients feel comfortable in their skin.
If you’ve been wondering when it might be time to undergo BOTOX, the team at Tijuana Bariatrics would like to let you know about four signs that indicate BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you. Please contact our Tijuana, Mexico, surgical center to learn more.
BOTOX is an injectable treatment used to diminish the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting. This helps smooth wrinkles caused by muscle movement, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
Patients typically don’t require any time for recovery after BOTOX treatment, making it easy to fit BOTOX treatment in any busy schedule.
Results are not immediate, but may start to become noticeable within three days. However, it can take up to 10 days to see full results. Results last up to three or four months but can be prolonged with touch-up treatments.
Four Key Signs
BOTOX Cosmetic can help adults look refreshed and rejuvenated starting as early as the first signs of aging begin to show. With this in mind, let’s take a look at four key signs that BOTOX may be right for you.
1. You Have Moderate to Significant Wrinkles
BOTOX helps improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial muscle movements. Accordingly, those who notice significant wrinkles in the following areas may benefit from BOTOX:
- Wrinkles across the forehead
- Crow’s feet at and around the outer corners of the eyes
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Lines around the lips
2. Fine Lines Are Beginning to Form
BOTOX isn’t just for treating moderate to significant wrinkles, but may also be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines.
Treating wrinkles early can also help slow the progression of wrinkles by keeping the muscles that cause wrinkles to form relaxed.
3. Makeup Is Collecting In Wrinkles
A smooth canvas is ideal when applying makeup. As facial wrinkles and creases deepen, it can cause makeup to collect in the lines. BOTOX helps to smooth many creases on the face, helping makeup to lay better on the skin.
If you are noticing makeup collecting in the lines and creases of your face, it may be time for BOTOX.
4. You Look Older Than You Feel
While there’s nothing wrong with embracing the aging process, many people are unhappy with the disconnect between how old they look compared to how they feel.
Treatment with BOTOX can reverse some of the signs of aging, helping to make your appearance match how you feel.
