Give the gift of Botox this Mother’s Day – for mom or as a treat for yourself.
Are you searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Flowers and jewelry are always a lovely gesture, but they can be a little on the ordinary side. If you want to give your mom a unique gift she will love, or even if you want to treat yourself this Mother’s Day, call Advanced Cosmetic Medicine about the gift of Botox. According to Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker, Botox is one of the quickest, most popular treatments for improving your appearance and giving you a more youthful look.
“Deep lines between the between the eyes cause you to appear tired or angry, even when your face is still. By injecting tiny amounts of Botox into a specific facial muscle, only the targeted impulse of that muscle will be blocked, causing a local relaxation and weakness. In this way, the muscle is immobilized, thus preventing wrinkly expressions. Within three days, that area will be flatter and smoother, and you will look more relaxed,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. Botox treatments last from three to six months.
An area of Botox typically includes frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines. Treating your frown lines, alone, will make you look fresher and more relaxed. “Botox is one of our most popular treatments, especially during the spring and summer, when everyone has so many social gatherings such as graduations to attend,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker.
Millions of men and women of all skin colors and ethnicities have realized the benefits of being treated with Botox. Results are visible, but Botox will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” When administered by an experienced physician such as Dr. Spoor-Baker, you can still smile, frown, and look surprised without those lines between your brows.
Botox is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of only a few tiny injections. Dr. Spoor-Baker will determine exactly where to administer these injections to achieve the best results for you. No anesthesia is required, and the entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. There is no downtime afterward; you may resume normal activity immediately. Discomfort is minimal and brief – most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, and the appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week. “Botox is a perfect solution to improve your appearance, as it is fast and effective, with minimal discomfort and no downtime,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker.
“With Botox, people will notice that you look more relaxed. You will even feel more relaxed. With repeat Botox treatments in the first year, those pesky lines can be gone,” adds Dr. Spoor-Baker.
