Botox injections to Continue Looking Your Very Best
After the age of 30, our skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, resulting in skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. As time proceeds, this cumulative loss shows itself in our skin and can make us look aged and fatigued. With neurotoxin injections such as Botox and Jeuveau, both men and women in the Colorado Springs area can achieve a more youthful appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator and affects nerve impulses. Cosmetically speaking, injected Botox relaxes underlying muscle contractions, thereby lessening furrows and wrinkles in the overlying skin. Repeated muscle contraction causes fine lines in skin that has lost elasticity and collagen, and results in dynamic wrinkles (lines of expression). Examples of these lines and wrinkles include:
- Forehead folds.
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes).
- Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows).
Why choose a Neurotoxin?
Botox has been used for years to treat medical and cosmetic concerns and continues to be the “go-to” treatment for dynamic wrinkles on an aging face. Botox is affordable, effective, and lasts an average of 3-6 months. If patients choose to discontinue Botox injections, the signs of aging will gradually reappear but usually not to the same degree as prior to treatment. With continued injections, patients find that they often need treatment less frequently.
