A wide variety of non-invasive and minimally invasive anti-aging treatments are available today, ranging from injectable fillers to ultrasonic therapies. However, the facial aesthetic treatment that has continued to dominate worldwide is Botox. Produced from botulinum toxin, which is probably the most potent biological agent known to science, Botox is highly effective in reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face for a temporary period of up to six months.
The treatment was approved by the FDA in 2002 for specific facial areas to reduce the signs of aging. It has continued to grow in popularity ever since. Motykie Medical Spa is a premier facility providing Botox injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. The med spa is led by Dr. Gary Motykie, who is a board certified surgeon with extensive experience in the field.
How does it work?
Botulinum neurotoxin is administered in very minuscule, controlled quantities in a Botox dosage to reduce the signs of aging on the face. The medication is injected directly into the overactive muscle on the face that is causing a wrinkle on the skin surface. As soon as the medication comes in contact with the targeted muscle, it blocks the transmission of neural signals between the muscle and the nervous system.
This causes the muscle to become paralyzed for a temporary period. Once the muscle is relaxed, the wrinkle disappears or fades away naturally from the face. In 2002, after extensive trials, the FDA approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines on the forehead.
Over the years, the treatment was also approved for various medical purposes. In 2013, the FDA granted approval to Botox for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. A med spa may also provide Botox treatment for lip augmentation and reduction of wrinkles in other parts of the face.
Botox is considered one of the most ideal anti-aging solutions for people who are bothered by the conspicuous signs of aging on their face, but are reluctant to opt for facelift or other surgical treatments. Motykie Medical Spa recommends Botox treatment to suitable candidates in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other locations.
Botox treatment will avoid all the potential risks and side effects that may be typically associated with a plastic surgery procedure. The treatment involves very little pain or discomfort, and can be performed in about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatable area involved. The treatment is significantly more affordable compared to any surgical or other aesthetic anti-aging treatments.
Working people and busy moms who find it difficult to choose surgical options because of shortage of time may opt for Botox treatment for quick and efficient results. The downtime involved with Botox treatment is negligible. A patient may, in fact, have the treatment done during the lunch hour, and go back to work immediately after the treatment session. Botox is manufactured by Allergan, Inc., which is a highly established and recognized producer of non-surgical aesthetic treatments in the United States.
