The realm of cosmetic surgery and other procedures offers a myriad of ways to improve your physical appearance. From tummy tucks to face lifts to chemical peels, you have a world of choices at your fingertips. But if you don’t want to deal with surgical procedures or downtime, there are milder options too.
Botox is one of the most common and simple cosmetic procedures that can quickly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. North Oakland Plastic Surgery specializes in Botox in Rochester Hills, MI.
How Botox Works
Botox is a diluted form of botulinum toxin – but don’t let the name frighten you. The Botox procedure is safe and has been part of the cosmetic industry for over 15 years. The injections are quick and relatively painless – just like getting a flu shot.
Over time, the skin of your face loses its elasticity, causing lines and wrinkles to develop with the movement of facial muscles. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that cause these wrinkles, giving you a smooth, youthful face.
The effects of Botox injections last from three to six months, and there are very few known side effects. The most common are mild bruising and aches around the injection sites. Usually, patients can return to work or other activities immediately after treatment, so Botox is a good option if you have a big event coming up.
