The Benefits of Botox Cosmetic

Posted by Aesthetics on Aug 10, 2017 8:03:00 AM

Have you found yourself pausing while brushing your teeth or applying makeup and simply staring at your reflection in the mirror? Are you 100% happy with the person staring back at you? For millions of people all over the world, there is a disconnect between what we feel like and what we look like, and that disparity can lead to everything from a lack of confidence to lingering depression. When we feel fantastic, we tend to live more fantastic lives. 

Why choose BOTOX® Cosmetic in your pursuit of happiness? Here are several benefits of Botox that will help you achieve the results you want.

It’s a Non-Invasive Way to Facilitate Change

If you’re interested in recapturing a more youthful appearance but find yourself hesitating at the idea of surgical interventions, Botox is an excellent first step. You’ll be able to refresh your look and tackle your self-perceived problem spots without committing to more invasive techniques that offer longer-lasting results.

The Results are Impressive, But Not Permanent

Botox can be used to create effects that range from subtle tweaks to more appreciable transformations, and the results generally last for about 3-4 months. At that point, you can continue on with your regiment or discuss a new path with your doctor, all without irreversible modifications that may leave you feeling unlike yourself.

Botox is a Versatile Product

If you’re like us, you do a lot of research on possible advanced cosmetic procedures to ensure you’re comfortable with any potential side effects or concerning results. With Botox, you can relax the muscles that cause wrinkling between your brows, around your eyes, and across your forehead, making this particular product a powerhouse of change.

Treatments are Quick and Fast-Acting

Botox is administered in one simple session in your doctor’s office. Even better, you may see results from your Botox treatment in just a few days. Schedule a “touch-up” before a big event – you know that high school reunion is coming up! – and you’ll likely see results in plenty of time for the red carpet or photo booth.

Side Effects are Minimal

In most cases, patients getting Botox experience little more than a slight pinch with each injection and occasional light bruising, swelling, or tingling post-treatment. Be sure to let your doctor know if you’re regularly taking over-the-counter pain medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen or any other supplements – even those labeled “herbal” or “all-natural” – as those can sometimes cause blood thinning, which will increase the likelihood of bruising. Entrusting your treatment to a qualified and highly experienced physician like Dr. Cuite will also help minimize any negative side effects.

It Works for a Wide Variety of Patients

The Food and Drug Administration has approved Botox Cosmetic for use in patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Additionally, the injectable is effective for moderate facial lines and wrinkles, so you can target just your crow’s feet or go for the wrinkles between your eyebrows, too. Combine those Botox benefits with the product’s minimally invasive methodology, and the fact that you can be in and out of the doctor’s office in less time than it takes to get lunch, and you can get the treatment you desire on a timetable that truly works for your busy schedule.

Fillers are a kind of one-stop shop in the world of aesthetics. Dermal fillers, as they’re often called, use either synthetic or naturally-derived material like hyaluronic acid to support your skin and recreate youthful contours that may have been erased due to age, environmental influence, or other factors.
