The number one plastic surgery procedure in the world is not breast augmentation or a facelift. It is botulinum toxin.
Botulinum is a prescription medicine that is injected just below the skin into the superficial muscles of the face. It blocks the nerve impulses to the injected muscles, softening lines in the forehead and around the eyes.
You can get injections safely and efficiently at Élan Med Spa in Fayetteville, NC, for subtle but significant improvement in the lines around the eyes and forehead. Botulinum injections in Fayetteville, NC are rapidly growing in popularity and require ten minutes in an office chair with no down time.
Botulinum toxin type A is a neuromodulator. It relaxes the pull of muscles which results in less folding of the skin. Softer lines in the upper face decrease the appearance of aging. Licensed medical professionals including Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants are authorized to give botulinum injections in North Carolina.
Injections are done just under the skin with very small needles and tiny amounts of botulinum. Results are obvious by 7-10 days and results last 3-6 months on average.
Approved by the FDA in 1991, botulinum has many medical uses including the prevention of migraine headaches, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Millions of people across the world, with Asia and South America leading the United States, use botulinum regularly to maintain a more youthful appearance. No longer used only to reverse the signs of aging, botulinum is now seen as a method of prevention. Many 20 and 30-year-olds are using botulinum to avoid the formation of harsh lines seen in their parents or grandparents.
Very few contraindications exist for the use of botulinum; however patients should consult with a knowledgeable Fayetteville provider before considering this procedure.
Many people are unaware that the FDA approved botulinum for migraine prevention in 2010 after impressive study results.
