Just like other parts of our bodies, skin ages over time. Excessive occupational and recreational sun exposure generally causes the most damage to our skin. This kind of exposure can result in: wrinkles (either fine surface lines or deep furrows), dryness, sagging, due to the loss of underlying tissue volume, skin growths and liver spots.
Smoking and hereditary factors can also contribute to the skin conditions above.
Women and men are increasingly seeking out medical and/or cosmetic treatments to attempt to correct or reduce signs of aging. Treatment options range from surgical procedures (facelift, eye lift, etc) to skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and chemical peel. Injectable dermal fillers and Botox® Cosmetic injections have also become increasingly popular treatments.
Botox® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a protein complex produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which contains the same toxin that causes food poisoning (botulism). Botox injections are used for the treatment of various neurological disorders and Botox® Cosmetic is used for cosmetic purposes. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic treatments generally last anywhere from three to four months.
