Now that we’re in mid-December, you’ve probably taken care of most of the names on your holiday shopping list. But what of those crow’s feet, forehead lines, and the 11s? Have you forgotten to get them a little something?
It’s not too late to give them Botox for the holidays at Dr. Lipton’s. Then they won’t get to accompany you to all of your holiday parties and events. A Botox session only takes 10-15 minutes, and Dr. Lipton puts his surgical skills and extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to use to ensure your results will be exactly as you hope.
What is Botox?
The botulinum toxin type A. That’s basically what Botox is made up of, along with a few other proteins. Those bacteria are the same bacteria that cause botulism. That sounds kind of scary, but the botulinum toxin actually exists throughout the natural world; you can even find it in the soil over in the LLELA Nature Preserve. Interesting thing — scientists back in the late 1940s discovered that when they injected a miniscule amount of the toxin into a muscle it temporarily stopped the muscle from relaxing. It does this by blocking the acetylcholine, the nerve messenger in the muscles, from communicating its messages to the brain. Because the brain doesn’t receive the message to initiate a muscle contraction, the muscle stays relaxed.
This is pretty big news for those pesky muscles on the upper third of the face that are behind three sets of wrinkles: crow’s feet at the outside of the eyes, the 11s between our brows, and forehead lines. When we’re young, contractions of facial muscles on the upper third of the face when we make certain expressions don’t create wrinkles. But after making expressions such as frowns or squinting hundreds of thousands of times, combined with thinning skin and declining collagen, wrinkles begin to form on the surface skin. When Dr. Lipton injects Botox into these muscles they stay relaxed and the wrinkles don’t form on the skin above them because the muscles don’t contract.
Voila, the magic of Botox.
Give the gift to your crow’s feet
See? Now you have the perfect gift for your crow’s feet, 11s, and those forehead lines. Botox. They all form due to muscle contractions, so Botox can make them disappear for all of your holiday parties and other festivities. And they can stay gone basically until the vernal equinox in March. At that point, the Botox will have become absorbed and another session with Dr. Lipton will maintain your results for another four months or so.
Remember that Botox takes about 3-4 days to fully take effect and stop your muscles from contracting. Take that into account when planning around your holiday events.
