Botox is referred by many as the wrinkle eraser. Aside from its non-invasive approach, the procedure is fast, easy, and affordable, plus there is no healing period involved. Men and women can take advantage of the benefits of botox, as the procedure corrects facial wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Botox causes temporary weakness when it is injected into the muscles of the face. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle, relaxes which results to wrinkles gradually disappear. Most patients say that they look ten years younger after the procedure. Procedure is done in the clinic and takes only 45 minutes or less to perform. The patient can go back to work right after the treatment. Result is quick too. After a few minutes, you will notice that your wrinkles are gone and your skin gradually becomes tighter, smoother and younger looking. But Dr. Alonzo clarified that although proven effective, the result of botox treatment is just temporary. Its effect last for 4 to 6 months. To maintain its result, you have to go back for another treatment. Candidates for this procedure include those who are 30 years and above, specifically those who have facial wrinkles. There are also patients who are in their mid 20s who already have moderate frown lines between the eyebrows and side of the eyes that make them look tired, weary and older than their age. Skin analysis during the consultation is conducted and then the patient is advised if botox is right for him or her. If it’s unnecessary, non-invasive rejuvenation treatments suited for them is recommended.
