Summer is a welcome season filled with water play, BBQ’s, and uninterrupted time in the sun with friends and family. But amidst all that comes “the shine”. The sunshine that is, and although it’s lovely and warm and provides the ideal temperature for the aforementioned activities, it can also lend itself to those aging lines around your eyes and between your brows.
At DentistsRUs, we feel that good oral health leads to better overall health, but we also provide preventative measures for those who wish to regain a more youthful appearance.
Botox is one of the specialty services we offer at all 5 of our Lower Mainland dental office locations. It provides our patients with the ability to freshen up their appearance during a regular dental checkup, or they can choose to book an appointment for Botox all on its own.
What Is Botox?
For those of you who are unaware of what Botox is, it is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows and around the eyes. It can be administered to people between the ages of 18 to 65 years of age, and is a temporary solution to these lines. However, it also has a progressive effect, in that – the more often it is utilized, the less likely your lines will increase or furrow deeper.
How Is Botox Administered?
Botox is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles that are causing you to squint or furrow. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, and reduces the muscle activity that causes these moderate to severe lines to form.
Botox provides proven and noticeable results, with no surgery and no recovery time, It truly carries with it anti-aging benefits that many have grown to embrace as a preventative measure.
So call and ask us about BOTOX® Cosmetic to find out if it is right for you, and prevent the summer squint this season!
