What is Botox? A naturally derived toxin, Botulinum toxin type a (brand name Botox) is the only FDA-approved product to temporarily smooth moderate-to-severe lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. It temporarily paralyzes muscles that contract and form lines. It’s also used to treat wrinkles and chronic migraines. Rather than filling lines, as Juvederm might do, Botox relaxes the muscle under the skin that causes the line.
When should I start Botox? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, thirty percent of Botox users are women in their late 20s. If lines begin to show when a face is in a lax expression, it’s not too early to consider using Botox as a preventative measure. It can also be used to smooth early facial lines caused by stress or environmental factors, and improve facial symmetry. If your skin shows no lines at all, and you aren’t the kind of person to use dramatic facial expressions that can lead to early wrinkles, then it’s probably too early to begin. Stick with sunglasses and a great moisturizer with sunscreen.
Is Botox safe? Botox is regulated by the FDA and perfectly safe, as long as it’s injected using proper equipment and techniques by a licensed professional. It’s important to follow their guidelines for diet and medication before and after treatment.
As a toxin, bargain hunting for a Botox provider can be extremely high risk. Would you want someone with minimal training and experience putting a needle full of poison in your face? We think not.
Do men use Botox? Why not? Men want to care for their skin and look youthful just as much as women. We treat men with Botox all the time! According to a study in Cosmetic Dermatology, use of Botox by men has skyrocketed by almost 300%. We’ve seen that happening in our clinics across Texas too.
