Botox: Beat Wrinkles Like a Celebrity
Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Courtney Cox are among the top women celebrities who favored or were rumored to seek the miracle wonders of Botox which is known to shave years off your age without the knife. The clinic of Dr. Patricia Norris is widely known for Botox Treatment in Portland OR. It feels good for women to know and follow the current trends being used by their Hollywood idols. But, everyone should know that Botox is not exclusively for women since we can also spot the famous 51 year old George Clooney as one the Hollywood finest actors who has benefited from Botox fillers. That is why Botox is increasingly gaining more popularity among men today. Men want to look youthful and they care about their looks the same as women.
As we age and reach beyond our 40’s we start to notice some signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles to appear in our forehead, around the eyes and mouth. We cannot stop the clock from ticking that leads us to reach and surpass our middle age but we can stop the signs of aging through the aid of Botox the way celebrities do. Botox is one of the most popular dermal fillers as it is a non-surgical way to reduce or lessen the lines and wrinkles in our face.
How Does Botox Work?
Usually, first-time patients who come into the clinic of a dermatologist will ask how Botox works to erase wrinkles. Botox works mainly by blocking the release of acetylcholine from the nerves that makes the muscles contract. In short, Botox is used to stop the contraction of the muscles and in effect causes a smoother appearance of the skin. By injecting Botox in small doses to the area where the wrinkles or fine lines are evident, paralysis of the muscle prevents the wrinkle from further development. Skin that is severely wrinkled will be smooth. Botox does not only treat but also prevents wrinkles.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox is FDA approved. It has been used not only to treat against wrinkles but some doctors are using it to treat headaches, bladder problems and excessive sweating. However, there are some precautions that every patient should take before trying this product. Patients should only seek the advice and consultation from a highly experienced dermatologist in Botox procedures. Dr. Norris is an experienced dermatologist in Portland Oregon. Together with Dr. Kjelstrup, she can provide the best and efficient Botox treatments along with her friendly and professional staff.
