As you get older, your skin may start to sag, and you may develop deep wrinkles and lines across your face and jawline. If you want to recapture your former youthful looks, but you do not want to spend a lot of time or money doing so, then consider alternatives to traditional cosmetic surgery.
Instead of getting traditional cosmetic surgery to make yourself look younger, you can undergo a less invasive and faster procedure. You could benefit by receiving regular Botox injections from your cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.
Avoiding Invasive Surgery
When you opt for Botox to make yourself look younger, you forgo having to go through an invasive procedure like a facelift. A traditional facelift requires significant cutting around the edges of your face. It involves the surgeon removing and pulling skin across your face to remove wrinkles and make you look younger.
The recovery time for a traditional facelift is also lengthy and can be quite painful. You must spend weeks and months recovering from this surgery. You also may rely on painkillers to avoid the discomfort of your face healing itself.
Instead of undergoing a major facelift operation, you can get Botox injections in and around the troublesome areas on your face. Your provider can inject Botox in areas across your forehead, in the frown lines around your mouth, and in the deep lines around your nose and jaw. These injections fill out and smooth these lines and wrinkles quickly and restore much of your former youthful appearance.
Along with restoring your former youthful looks, Botox also comes with few side effects. The injections are not painful and are akin to receiving a vaccination. Your doctor may even be able to numb your skin with a topical analgesic prior to you receiving Botox injections.
Further, there is minimal risk of side effects like rashes or hives. To ensure that you do not experience any side effects, your nurse will keep you under observation for a half-hour to an hour after your injections. When you are deemed to have no reactions to the injections, you will be sent home to rest and recuperate.
Botox can offer a number of advantages to people who want to look and feel younger. You forgo having to undergo a traditional, invasive facelift surgery. You can smooth out lines and fill in wrinkles without having your face cut. There is also minimal risk of side effects.
