5 Reasons to Consider Botox® Injections

The holiday season is a time to spend with family and friends. With the many celebrations and get-togethers the season brings, it’s only natural to want to put your best face forward. 

At Beth and Howard Braver, MD, in Aventura and Hollywood, Florida, our providers are helping patients gain a more youthful appearance with a little help from Botox®. We use this neuromodulator and others like it to put the focus on your features, not your wrinkles. 

Keep reading to learn five reasons you should consider giving yourself the gift of Botox this holiday season. 

Understanding Botox

By your late 20s, your skin starts to lose tone and elasticity. This means that when you continue to make the same facial expressions you’ve always made, like frowning, smiling, and squinting, your skin stops bouncing back into place.  

As time goes by, lines and wrinkles form in your skin in places that move when your muscles contract to make those expressions. 

Botox, which gets its name from its main component (botulinum toxin), and other injectable neuromodulators block the signals between your nerves and their associated muscles.  

Without the nerve signal, your injected muscles don’t contract as deeply. The result? Wrinkles and lines soften and fade away, giving your skin a smoother, younger-looking appearance. 

The other neuromodulators — Dysport® and Xeomin® — get results using the same science. But for your safety and the best results possible, get these aesthetic injections from medically supervised professionals, like our team at Beth and Howard Braver, MD.  

Reasons to consider Botox

There are many reasons to consider Botox, the most popular injectable on the market. Here’s a look at our top five: 

Quick sessions, lasting results

If you want a quick treatment that offers lasting results, consider Botox. It takes only 15-20 minutes to get smoother skin and a younger appearance for up to four months. And over time with repeat treatments, you may notice your results last even longer.   

No recovery required

You can get Botox and get back to your holiday activities right away. Botox injections don’t require any downtime for recovery, and they come with very few side effects. The most common include: 

Not everyone experiences these side effects, and you can avoid or minimize them by following our pre- and post-procedure instructions.

A proven product

When you get Botox from experienced aesthetic providers, like our team, research indicates that Botox injections are not only effective, but they’re also incredibly safe. In fact, this neuromodulator has been FDA-approved for years.

Natural-looking results

There’s a reason Botox is the most popular injectable: the amazing results it provides. With Botox, you get a smoother appearance that looks like your natural self, only younger. 

Just remember that the results you get from Botox are technique-sensitive. This means that if you want natural-looking results, you should only get injections from medically supervised aesthetic professionals. 

Stops wrinkles in their tracks

Medical researchers who study the effects of neuromodulators have found Botox can stop deeper lines and wrinkles in their tracks. By getting Botox injections when wrinkles and lines start forming, you can stop them from progressing and becoming deeply etched on your face.
