BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most well-known treatment of its kind. However, many people still have questions about how it works. We know it can be difficult to commit to a treatment when you don’t fully understand it. So, we’ll answer some common questions to give you more confidence in your choice. For more information, schedule a consultation at our practice in Overland Park.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking the nerve signals that tell muscles to contract. Muscle movement, which occurs when you make facial expressions, is a leading cause of lines and wrinkles. BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces muscle activity in the treated area for smoother skin. It can also relax jaw muscles that have become bulky and overworked from teeth grinding.
Will BOTOX Cosmetic Make Me Look Frozen?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-dependent treatment. The results can look very natural when the injectable is administered properly. It’s possible to retain some facial movement as well.
Meanwhile, if the product is administered too liberally, it can result in a very stiff look. Administering the product to the wrong treatment areas can also create an unnatural outcome.
Dr. Victor Perez is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. He is uniquely qualified to administer BOTOX Cosmetic and other popular facial injectables. You can trust him to help you look like yourself after treatment — just with fewer lines and wrinkles.
Can I Use BOTOX Cosmetic To Prevent Wrinkles?
There may be preventative benefits to receiving BOTOX Cosmetic before lines and wrinkles appear. The idea is that you can stave off signs of aging by limiting facial muscle movement. More patients in their 20s and 30s are asking their aesthetic providers about BOTOX Cosmetic.
