How convenient to find a leader in Botox right in your own backyard? The licensed aestheticians of Modern Aesthetics medical spa in Spring Hill, TN bringing their community unparalleled knowledge and experience of the nation’s hottest cosmetic trend: Botox.
Data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows the amount of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has increased by nearly 200% over the last two decades, as Americans continue to find new and innovative ways to fine-tune their bodies. Botox remains the long standing No. 1 choice for minimally invasive treatments, making up more than half of the 15.7 million procedures done in the last year alone.
Botox, the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, is a popular injectable derived from a bacterium found in many natural settings, including soil, lakes and forests. Though a powerful poison in the wrong hands, Botox has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein with a number of applications.
A quick procedure that does not require anesthesia, Botox may be injected into specific muscles using a fine needle by your licensed Spring Hill physician, with most patients reporting only minimal discomfort. The injections serve to reduce abnormal muscle contraction and offer a “smoothing” effect, delivering Botox as Americans’ leading choice to treat fine facial lines, including “dynamic wrinkles” that have appeared through the formation of facial expressions like a smile or a frown.
After years of use, Botox has served many ways to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, and the FDA has approved its use for the treatment of frown lines and “crow’s feet” -- dynamic wrinkles that form at the outer corners of the eyes while smiling. Beyond, the most common cosmetic use of Botox is the treatment of glabellar lines, which surround the patch of skin between the eyebrows and above the nose. Another popular Botox procedure is used to smooth forehead lines across the frontalis, the large facial muscle that contracts to raise the eyebrow.
Additionally, Modern Aesthetics of Spring Hill has used Botox to treat more than just upper facial areas. Quick procedures have served to lift the corners of the mouth, soften a square jawline and fix a gummy smile. The treatment has been used to counter vertical wrinkles around the upper lip, also known as “lipstick lines” that may have formed naturally through actions such as puckering or from external factors such as smoking. Botox has also been used to counter chin dimpling, as well as bands around the neck, and can be used alongside dermal fillers to restore lost volume, soften creases and enhance facial contours.
Involving no surgery and no recovery time, as well as offering a more youthful and refreshed appearance, Botox Cosmetic continues to be the wrinkle treatment of choice by millions of men, women and their doctors all across America. And here in Spring Hill, TN, the professionals at Modern Aesthetics medical spa are ready to add your name to the growing list.
