When you live in Hawaii, your skin often takes a beating even if you spend time every day carefully putting on sunscreen. The sun along with pollutants and other dangers damage the skin over time, perhaps even making it develop lines and wrinkles before its time. However, no matter how old you are, you do not have to put up with these annoying marks on your skin. BOTOX® is an excellent solution for treating these beginning signs of aging and continues to work for as long as you get regular treatments. In fact, with continued treatments, you will not have to worry about these initial expression lines settling into your face.
BOTOX® is a minimally-invasive treatment that is specially designed to take care of the first lines and wrinkles that you see on your skin. These lines typically form when you smile, frown or make another facial expression but smooth away from your skin when your face is at rest. These are far different from static lines that are ingrained more deeply into your skin. BOTOX® can smooth expression lines away by telling the nerves in the facial muscles not to fire, thus eliminating muscle contractions and the connected wrinkles. When these expression lines are not allowed to form, they also cannot become ingrained into the face and form larger, deeper and more obtrusive wrinkles.
We provide this treatment in a very quick and easy format. In fact, this is a great treatment to fit in around work and other activities. Following the injections, you may have a bit of redness at the area but will not have to worry about taking time to recover.
To maintain your youthful results, you will need to have continued BOTOX® treatments every several months. The exact amount of time between your appointments will depend on how your body metabolizes the BOTOX® and how long you have been receiving treatments. The longer that you get the treatment, the longer that you may be able to go between treatments.
While this information gave you a small look at what BOTOX® is and how it can help you, we are sure that you still may have some questions about this popular treatment. We invite you to make an appointment at The Ferguson Clinic in Honolulu to learn more. Contact us today to book your consultation!
