BOTOX® is considered the standard injectable in Gainesville for minimizing the signs of aging and has been used safely and successfully for years. It has been specially processed for cosmetic use to relax dynamic muscles temporarily. Approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), it effectively erases fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
The two types of wrinkles that are the main signs of aging on the face are dynamic and static wrinkles. BOTOX® treats dynamic wrinkles that are created by movement and expressions. Static wrinkles are created by the loss of facial volume because of a decrease of collagen production. Static wrinkles are usually deep and require a filler to be removed. The filler gives back the appearance of volume. Fillers are also temporary solutions, but BOTOX® is not a filler.
Dynamic wrinkles are more superficial. After years of using your expressive muscles, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form. BOTOX® injections block the nerve messages to expressive muscles so they stay relaxed. The result is the surface wrinkles are gone. As people age, the eyebrows may start to sag. BOTOX® may lift the eyebrows to their original positions. This can take years off the face, making it look fresh and less tired.
You may be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatments in Gainesville if you have mild or moderate superficial wrinkles around your eyes, lips, and/or forehead. It is not a permanent solution for minimizing the signs of aging. But when it starts to wear off, you can have maintenance treatments as needed to maintain your youthful appearance.
BOTOX® is suitable for men and women. It is a non-surgical solution for people who would like to improve their appearance, but are not ready for cosmetic surgery.
