Stop Time with Botox

For most of us, the days, weeks, and months fly by. It may have seemed like you were 16 just yesterday. Now you’re decades older and might be married or have kids of your own.

Most of us wouldn’t trade in the experience and wisdom of our older years. But most of us would trade in the other not-so-fun changes, like wrinkles, if we could.

Although you can’t stop getting older, BOTOX is one of the best ways to stop time on your appearance. At Shantique Medspa, located in Torrance, California, we provide BOTOX as a minimally invasive way to smooth away wrinkles.

Why wrinkles form

Facial expressions help portray your emotions to the outside world. After years of smiling and frowning, you might have noticed lines and wrinkles etched into your skin.

This is because your skin becomes less elastic and more brittle as you age. Your skin also produces less natural oils, causing dryer and more wrinkled skin.

Sun exposure also contributes to the formation of wrinkles, particularly for those with fair skin. This is why we experience wrinkles more commonly on skin that's exposed to the sun like our face, hands, neck, and forearms. 

Every day you're exposed to hundreds of harmful chemicals, many of which also age your skin. If you’re a smoker, this can also cause premature skin aging.

Turn back the clock

Wrinkles are not harmful to your health. While some aren’t bothered by their appearance, many people wish to erase them for cosmetic concerns. For those who want a younger, more radiant appearance — there’s BOTOX.

BOTOX is a protein derived from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. In small doses and administered by a skilled professional, it’s FDA-approved and very safe. 

BOTOX works by intercepting the nerve signals that tell certain facial muscles to contract. As these muscles relax, your wrinkles are softened and even erased. BOTOX only targets the wrinkle-causing muscles so your surrounding facial muscles will be untouched and able to express a wide range of emotion.

BOTOX can improve wrinkles in areas like:

It doesn’t just improve wrinkles. BOTOX also helps minimize the appearance of your pores. You’ll notice your make-up goes on smoother and more evenly which adds to its appeal.

Benefits

A smoother, younger-looking complexion is one of the best benefits of BOTOX. However, its many additional benefits make BOTOX the number one minimally invasive procedure with 4.4 million procedures performed in 2021.

Here are some additional benefits:

BOTOX has few side effects. While most patients experience none, the most common are redness, swelling or headache that often go away in a few hours.

Beautiful, natural results

You might have shied away from BOTOX in the past because you heard it could make you look “frozen.” While this can happen in rare cases, it's usually only the result of getting too much BOTOX improperly placed by an unskilled professional.

Shahinaz Soliman, MD is known for her expert injection technique which provides her patients with beautiful, natural results. BOTOX can erase 5-7 years from your face with results that last for 3-4 months. No one will be able to tell you had work done, but will probably comment on how good you look.
