If you have fine lines and wrinkles on your face, you make look tired and tense. You may also appear older than you really are. Fortunately, there is a solution to these common aging concerns. Botox can smooth out your lines and wrinkles and leave you with a more refreshed appearance.
One of the most common questions that Dr. Schalit receives regarding Botox is “How safe is Botox?” Keep reading to learn the answer to this question.
Botox is a brand name for a formula that contains a purified chemical called botulinum toxin. It blocks muscular signals, weakens the muscles and prevents them from contracting, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful complexion.
By opting for Botox, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of your face. Dr. Schalit recommends Botox to treat signs of aging in the forehead, eye area, nose, and upper lip area.
Botox has been backed by the FDA since 2002 and is considered one of the safest and most tested drugs on the market. Each year, more than 3.5 million Botox injections are performed in the United States so you don’t have to worry about its safety or effectiveness.
If you are looking for a non-invasive way to resolve your facial wrinkles but do not want to undergo surgery, you may be a good candidate for Botox. Since Botox does not require allergy tests like other injectables, as long as you’re in good health, you may benefit from this treatment.
While Botox is often associated with middle-aged and older men and women who are looking for a way to resolve their wrinkles, it may also be effective for younger patients who would like to stop wrinkles from arising in the first place. By receiving Botox earlier in your life, you may be able to stop your facial muscles from contracting when you make facial expressions like frowning, laughing, and squinting.
You should not receive Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Dr. Schalit also discourages this treatment to patients who are living with neuromuscular diseases or taking Neomycin, Streptomycin, or other aminoglycoside medications.
I had Botox for my first time 6 months ago. My “lines” of my forehead never bothered me until I tried Botox & saw major results. It was a life changer & cant go with out now ! Thanks Dr. Schalit you are the best !
