In McAllen and throughout Hidalgo County, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic treatment for the reduction of dynamic wrinkles on the face and forehead. The primary reasons for this are the ease by which the treatment is administered, the long-lasting results, and the non-existence of a recovery period. There’s also no surgery involved, no harsh acid used, and no abrasive resurfacing.
What makes BOTOX® Cosmetic unique is that it helps eliminate the visual signs of aging without actually treating the skin. No matter how much moisturizer we use and how much rejuvenating skin creams we apply, the tiny smile lines and crow’s feet stubbornly remain. BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth out these areas with a single treatment.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein solution that is injected beneath the skin, directly into the muscles that control facial skin movement. These muscles allow us to smile, look angry, pout, or purse our lips in preparation for giving a kiss. Unfortunately, the person we’re kissing may suddenly notice the dynamic wrinkles that have formed around the perimeter of the mouth.
BOTOX® Cosmetic comes to the rescue. After it is injected, it prevents nerve signals sent by the brain from causing muscle contractions. This means that the skin isn’t pulled or relaxed, so the dynamic wrinkles and creases don’t appear.
A Simple Treatment
During this treatment at our office in McAllen, the BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. The muscles will gradually become relaxed. The skin doesn’t feel numb because the sensory nerves aren’t affected. The client can still smile, frown and make all of the other normal facial expressions, but the annoying marionette lines and crow’s feet are no longer visible.
Training The Facial Muscles
The best part about BOTOX® Cosmetic injections is that the muscles get used to being in a relaxed state. This means using less of the fluid months later when it’s time to receive repeat injections. Most of our McAllen clients report positive results lasting for multiple months.
