The eternal dream of man to remain young and beautiful forever has always been a motivating factor towards innovation and experimentation. This dream has been responsible for the increasing popularity of cosmetic surgery, leading to the sudden influx in the use of Botox®. Although the results are temporary, Botox®.treatments have gained popularity all over the U.S. and throughout the world because of the simplicity of the procedure and fast immediate results.
Frown lines are caused by overactive muscles in the face. Botox® Cosmetic is intramuscular, blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. Botox® is used extensively for getting rid of expression lines in foreheads, furrows between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. It produces real, noticeable results with no surgery and no recovery time.
The full effects of Botox® injections can be seen within 5 to 7 days. The results last from three to six months after which most patients gradually return to their former state.
Botox for Neck Bands
Neck bands develop as we age. There is a thin layer of muscle called the Platysma. The sole function of that muscle is to maintain contour of the neck by sharpening the neck angle below the chin. There is a strip of this muscle on either side of the front of your neck. As we age, the muscle loosens allowing the front edge of the muscle on either side to start hanging down creating neck bands.
Injecting Botox into these neck bands can relax the bands enough that they will relax and lie down, rather than protrude outward. This is a relatively simple treatment, and lasts up to 4 months.
Like Botox®, Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A, and it is also effective for frown lines and brow furrows.
Dysport® works within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving the Dysport® treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting.
