BOTOX® anti-wrinkle treatments are among the most popular cosmetic procedures out there, and with good reason. This FDA-approved injectable solution can erase fine lines and wrinkles across the brow and around the eyes and mouth. Creating a smooth and line-free appearance has never been easier. The injections take mere minutes to complete. They’re also entirely non-invasive and entail absolutely no recovery time.
What BOTOX® Can Do for You
The first noticeable signs of aging usually appear in the form of dynamic wrinkles around the lips and eyes and across the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles are largely the result of tension that has accumulated in the expressive muscles, or the muscles that are responsible for facial movement and expression.
BOTOX® effectively blocks the nerve signals to these muscles so that they have the chance to relax. Once tension in the expressive muscles has been eliminated by BOTOX®, the related surface wrinkles will be released.
This injectable can take years off the face within just a matter of minutes. Best of all, unlike more invasive anti-aging procedures, there is no cutting or tissue removal required and no extended recovery period.
Are You a Good Candidate?
BOTOX® is designed to treat mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles. Wrinkles that are caused by lost facial volume and lost skin elasticity are unlikely to be responsive to these treatments. The best candidates for BOTOX® have realistic expectations concerning their treatment outcomes. This procedure provides short-term improvements at the surface of the skin and will need to be repeated a few times per year for a continuously fresh and line-free look. The results of a typical treatment will begin to wear off within about four to six months.
What to Expect During and After Your Treatment Session
You can expect your entire treatment session to last only a few minutes. The injections will simply be made in the area that needs to be treated. These areas may then be massaged to ensure that the BOTOX® solution has been properly and evenly distributed. Once your treatment is over, you will immediately be free to go and can return to work or any other scheduled activities.
The full results of a BOTOX® treatment will not manifest right away. While you might notice a significant decrease in the appearance of dynamic muscles across the visage, additional improvements can be expected over the next several days. Although temporary, the injections can be safely repeated by our provider for ongoing benefits.
