Beverly, MA dentist Dr. Benjamin Polan helps you look younger with Botox

Look younger with botox cosmetic

If you are one of the many individuals who find that signs of aging are appearing more quickly than you would have imagined, you are not alone. Luckily, advancements in technology have reduced the severity and expense of anti-aging procedures. New injectables and creams make it easy for individuals to look and feel younger in a fraction of the time.

One of the most common injectable medications widely known for reducing wrinkles and the effects of aging is Botox. A temporary filler, Botox (otherwise known as Botulinum toxin), was introduced to the general public a mere 15 years ago as a muscle immobilizer.

Used in the 1970s and 1980s as a solution for facial, neck, and shoulder spasms, Botox gained popularity from physicians who began to notice a reduction in wrinkle depth and appearance in areas where this neurotoxin was injected.

Botox and TMJ

Botox, though most widely now used for aesthetic purposes still maintains its popularity as a muscle immobilizer that can be used to treat common conditions such as TMJ. Injected directly into the muscle in pre-selected facial regions, Botox works by blocking the path of nerve impulses to injected muscles, helping them to relax.

Despite the potential side effects of Botox, this injectable has been approved by the FDA and has been used as a cosmetic enhancement drug for over 40 years. Not only does it create a smoother, more youthful complexion, but it also allows patients to regain self-confidence in their appearance. In treating the signs of aging, this nonsurgical procedure reduces wrinkles by immobilizing the muscles that cause them to develop.

Is botox for you?

Though very effective, this neurotoxin injection is temporary. This allows individuals to view the results it can provide for them in a timely, controlled manner. Botox provides the perfect solution between natural aging and the emerging anti-aging climate that is present in today’s society.
