Botox®: The Perfect Way to Rejuvenate Your Appearance for Summer

Botox®: The Perfect Way to Rejuvenate Your Appearance for Summer

We Texans in the Houston area get to enjoy near-perfect weather all year round, but that doesn’t mean we don’t take summer seriously. 

Here at ProHealth Clinic, we know that feeling confident in your skin is incredibly important. That’s why Catharine Nformangum, MSN-FNP, offers a wide range of aesthetic services, including Botox® to help you face this summer with skin you can be proud of. 

Here’s what you should know about Botox and how it can help you.

A closer look at Botox

An estimated 11 million people around the world have invested in Botox injections. But despite that popularity, there are still many misconceptions about what Botox is and how it works. 

Botox hasn’t always been the gold standard in wrinkle reduction you know it to be. In fact, Botox wasn’t approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic use until the early 2000s. 

The story of Botox begins over 100 years ago when Belgian scientist Emile Pierre van Ermengem successfully isolated the Clostridium botulinum toxin after a botulism outbreak. 

By the 1970s, researchers harnessed the power of the toxin and were able to treat strabismus (crossed eyes). Coincidentally, they also noticed that botulinum toxin reduced the appearance of wrinkles in monkeys. 

Fast forward to today, and Botox has solidified its place as the premier cosmetic treatment on the market, helping millions restore their youthful glow. 

How Botox can help you

Thanks to years of research, scientists have refined Botox treatments so they can strategically target a specific type of wrinkles we call dynamic. 

Take a look in the mirror or your phone’s camera and make a face. Did you suddenly see wrinkles pop up and deep creases form? Those are dynamic wrinkles, the type that develop over time as the result of repeated facial expressions and show up any time you move your facial muscles. 

And that’s where Botox comes in. 

The toxin inside the Botox injections temporarily paralyzes your facial muscles, preventing you from making wrinkle-inducing expressions and effectively reducing the appearance of lines. 

With a few simple injections, you can enjoy a whole summer of smoother, younger-looking skin. 

Better together

Botox is a powerful treatment on its own, but many of our patients don’t stop there. We offer other aesthetic services that work with Botox injections to create a completely rejuvenated look. 

For example, dermal fillers plump up your facial features and can address static wrinkles (wrinkles that are visible when your face is at rest). You can also receive laser services that target uneven skin tone, complexion issues, acne scars, large pores, and hyperpigmentation. 

If you’re ready to put the finishing touches on your summer glow, we’d love to talk with you. Call or click to schedule an appointment at our West Houston, Texas, office today.
