Beyond Face Value
Whether you simply want to erase the years from your face or desire to achieve a younger, fresher look, Botox offers a safe and effective means of recapturing your youthful vitality. Women are by far not the only ones striving to have smoother, firmer and tighter skin.
Botox is not about vanity. Beyond mere appearance, Botox may mean the difference between a promotion or getting passed over in favor of a more youthful colleague. In the workplace, looking old gives off an out-of-date and out-of-touch aura that is hard to combat even if you are far more proficient than those half your age.
Benefits of Botox
Botox is a quick and relatively painless procedure that can be performed while you’re on lunch break. It offers the look of a facelift sans cutting; it is far less drastic or obvious than plastic surgery. Botox can soften the lines and wrinkles around your eyes and mouth as well as those creases in your forehead that give you that chronically stressed and worried look.
Botox is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting small amounts of Botulinum toxin into the facial muscles that are responsible for fine lines and wrinkles. It temporarily paralyzes these muscles by blocking nerve signals. When the muscles are not allowed to contract, the overlying skin does not wrinkle.
Treatment is quick and allows you to return to work and your other daily activities right away. Botox results typically last anywhere from four to six months, with mild soreness at the injection sites being the only side effect.
Unlike many other luxuries that have seen a decline during the recession, Botox among men has actually increased as more and more men have turned to cosmetic enhancements to regain their competitive edge in the workplace.
