Give your appearance an affordable boost with Botox treatment
Longevity of modern humans has improved a lot. About 30,000 years ago, few lived past the age of 30. Between 1500 and 1800 the average lifespan was still just 30 to 40 years. Dramatic improvements in hygiene, healthcare, sanitation, immunizations, nutrition, clean water, and pregnancy care after 1800 led to a big jump in life expectancy – to about age 75 in most industrialized countries, and higher in the United States.
Botox is using technology to make you look less tired, less stressed and a bit younger. That means plenty of healthy, active adults dating, working, and taking enthusiastic roles in communities like Essex Fells and surrounding areas, well into maturity. If you are one of them, you’d probably like to look as youthful as you feel. Botox treatment gives your appearance an affordable, non-surgical pick-me-up.
Aging adds many wonderful characteristics to your personality including empathy, intelligence, and humor. It also has an effect on your face. Hours of frowning in concentration or squinting from vision changes etch vertical lines between your eyebrows and horizontal furrows in your forehead. Thousands of smiles over the years score crow’s feet crinkles at the corners of your eyes. These changes in your skin may add character to your face, but they also leave you looking tired, angry, and older.
Botox is essentially a purified protein. It is called a neuromodulator because it interrupts signals from nerves in your face to the brain that tell muscles to contract. As those muscles cease to tighten repeatedly the lines and wrinkles they’ve created soften and smooth out. If you do not get the crease you will never have the deep line.
The product is artfully injected into precise points to prevent facial muscles from contracting and to retrain them into a more relaxed foundation for skin. Botox treatment sessions take only about an hour, and there is essentially no downtime. You see noticeable changes within a few days, and improvement continues for up to a month. Every individual is different, but results typically last about four months. Patients are usually so pleased with the affordability and effectiveness of Botox treatment, that they eagerly schedule periodic touch-ups to maintain a youthful appearance. There were 14.6 million patients treated with Botox in 2013. This makes it the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment.
