Wouldn’t you love it if you could permanently have that well-rested, refreshed look that you get after you’ve returned from a vacation? People would ask why you looked so good, and only you would know that the secret was a lot cheaper than a week in Hawaii.
Regular injections of Botox® can perk up your appearance, making you look less tired and worn-out. Botox injections use a tiny amount of a purified form of the Botulinum toxin, which stops your muscles from making certain contractions.
It’s subtler than you think, too. Instead of looking like you’ve had obvious work done on your face, you just look happier and more glowing. In this blog, our providers at eleven19 Medical + Weight Loss explain how Botox can make you feel more beautiful.
Erase your frown lines
Have you ever heard someone say that if you smile more, you’ll look and feel happier? It turns out that’s true.
Botox erases your frown lines, preventing you from making frowning expressions, which just might encourage you to smile more. You always look more beautiful when you smile.
But you don’t have to worry about having a frozen face; you can still make expressions. Our skilled providers administer Botox with a gentle hand to avoid that stiff, expressionless look.
Eliminate angry or frustrated expressions
Do you get the eleven lines on your forehead? A lot of people do. This means that you have wrinkles that look like the number 11 between your eyebrows. Often formed by squinting or frowning, these lines can make you look like you’re mad, even when you’re not.
They’re actually caused by something called overactive corrugator muscles. The treatment for them is Botox, which can soften them. You don’t have to permanently look like you’re having a bad day. You’ll just look happier, which automatically makes you look more beautiful.
Erase wrinkles from sun damage or smoking
When you spend your first couple of decades engaging in bad habits, like overdoing sun exposure or smoking, you don’t realize that it will eventually catch up with you. The result is wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
You may have wrinkles above your lip if you were a smoker or by your mouth or eyes if you were a sun-worshipper. Botox can also get rid of these wrinkles, making you look more youthful.
What to know about Botox
Botox injections are quick and require very little downtime. Typically, the procedure takes as little as 5 minutes. You might have some bruising afterward, which is normal, and usually goes away in a few days.
The one downside is that the results aren’t permanent; you’ll find that you probably need to get it redone in 3-4 months.
You also should avoid Botox if you are pregnant, are breastfeeding, or have a neuromuscular disorder.
