19 Jun Erase the Signs of Aging with Botox
The signs of aging are something that affects us all. Developing fine line and wrinkles is virtually inevitable with exposure to sun and pollution along with the ways we move our faces when we express ourselves. While the folkloric fountain of youth has yet to be discovered, we can battle the signs of aging without invasive surgery. Botox is a short-term, non-invasive solution for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a way to prevent the development of wrinkles because it temporarily immobilizes facial muscles. Our oral surgeon offers Botox for men and women looking to maintain or establish a more youthful appearance.
How Botox Helps with a Youthful Appearance
Botox impairs facial movement. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial movement can be greatly reduced by receiving Botox. This treatment consists of local injections. Within a few days, Botox’s effects are noticeable. Botox smoothes out lines and wrinkles – especially those around the mouth, forehead, and eyes.
What to Expect with Botox
Since this treatment is not permanent or invasive, patients who want to maintain their results will need to make routine appointments a few times a year. Receiving Botox injections only takes a few minutes and does not require anesthesia. Botox is not invasive and therefore does not require surgery, sutures, or uncomfortable recovery periods.
Why Choose an Oral Surgeon
An oral and maxillofacial (OMS) is a specialist with advanced education and training to treat a number of conditions that affect the face and oral cavity. An OMS has a thorough understanding of facial and oral anatomy—especially the complex muscles and ligaments that work in harmony to move the mouth and face to a variety of positions. This knowledge is useful for making the most of Botox injections so that injection sites produce the desired effect.
