Restore and Refresh the Eyes with Botox®

Botox | Denver CO Frown lines, creases, and wrinkles. These are common problems that affect most of us as we get older. They are also problems that can cause us to feel incredibly self-conscious. There is something about the eyes that gives others a sneak peek into our general wellness and character. Heavy, sagging, bagging eyelids say “I’m tired,” or “I’m not friendly.” If you want to revive your eyes to better reflect how good you feel on the inside, consider how Botox® can help.

What Botox® is
This originator of all injectable treatments is formulated with purified botulinum toxin A protein. This protein has been used for decades in the clinical setting and has a strong history of safety and efficacy.

How Botox® Works
To understand how  works on fine lines and wrinkles, it helps to look at its therapeutic value. For many years, botulinum toxin A protein has been used to reduce muscle contractions caused by certain medical conditions. The protein works by blocking neural transmissions between nerves and treated muscles. It was actually in the clinical use of this solution that its side effect of wrinkle reduction was discovered. Now, the primary use of Botox® cosmetic is to ease muscle contractions around the eyes and on the forehead. The result is smoother, younger looking skin.

What is Possible with Botox®

  • Frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines on the neck can be lessened to the degree you desire.
  • Drooping, heavy eyebrows can be lifted up to their normal position in a single office visit.
  • Excessive sweating can be diminished with Botox® treatments, letting you feel more comfortable and confident.

Points to Consider

  • More Botox® isn’t better. Too much of this product can have an adverse effect, such as inhibiting facial expression or lifting the brows too high. We perform treatment with the intent of restoring a more youthful look; a naturally younger version of you.
  • Women who are pregnant or nursing will need to postpone their Botox® treatment.
  • Medications and supplements that prevent clotting (blood thinners) may increase the risk for bruising. If you can, avoid medications like ibuprofen and aspirin, and supplements like fish oil and vitamin E, prior to Botox® treatment. If bruising does occur, know that it is only temporary.
  • Botox® is an excellent anti-aging treatment for both men and women!

Forget your Foot, put your Best Face Forward!

facial plastic surgery in denver co | Fante Eye and Face Centre You may have been taught that judging a book by its cover is a bad thing; that we cannot possibly learn anything of value about a person without “digging deeper” and getting to know them. On some level, this is true. However, it kind of goes against our human nature; the hardwired skill that we all have and use on a daily basis: face-reading.

Humans have been reading faces for thousands of years, and they have done it well. It’s like your gut instinct; you just so happen to trust it. Well, face-reading is similar. Long ago, assessing one’s character needed to happen without haste. Wait too long to get to know a person’s intent, and he just may be having you for dinner. Clearly, modern society is not nearly as barbaric. However, the shape of a person’s face, and features such as their eyes, nose, lips, and chin, all give us subconscious clues about who they may be.

  • The round, full “baby face” portrays innocence; a caring nature.
  • A square shape gives the perception of ambition, and also the trait of dominance.
  • A long face is associated with deliberate, methodical living, and also of a tendency toward working too much.
  • Triangular faces indicate energy and an active personality.
    Does this have any Merit Whatsoever?

Ok, so our ancient ancestors judged each other by looking at face, teeth, hair, and other physical attributes. What relevance does that have today?

  • Brandies University research found that a round face might just get you out of a sticky situation. In small claims cases, defendants with a “baby face” were not often thought guilty of an intentional crime. They were, however, found guilty more often of accidental harm, such as running over the neighbors mailbox because their foot hit the gas rather than the break. Why? Because a round face portrays innocence!
  • Another study on aesthetic beauty discovered that employers are more apt to extend an invitation for employment to a good-looking applicant, even if a less attractive prospect was more qualified.

What this Means for You

One thing is perfectly clear. The way that you feel about your own facial aesthetic will affect your level of confidence. Research also suggests that face shape and facial features will be associated with certain character traits by those who interact with. The good news is you can perfect everything from the plumpness of your lips to the shape of your nose and more, often without surgery.
