Excess muscle tension can wreak havoc upon your face. It can deform collagen to create permanent wrinkles, lines and creases in your skin. The only way to prevent these from forming is to stop the problem at the root. This is exactly what BOTOX® does when it is used in the face.
Let’s take a closer look at what BOTOX® can do to treat muscle-related imperfections in the face. This will help you decide if BOTOX® is the right non-surgical treatment for the dermatological conditions that might exist on your face.
Cosmetic Areas Where BOTOX® Shines
BOTOX® treats dermatological imperfections related to excess muscle tension. It works to block the nerve impulses that tell the muscles in your face to tense, which in turn significantly lessens the effect of creases and lines that appear intermittently.
This makes BOTOX® perfect for treating areas such as:
- The Eyes – BOTOX® can relax muscles around the eyes without interfering with the function of your eyes.
- Brows – BOTOX® can diminish the appearance of deep lines near the brow. These lines have traditionally been problematic to treat due to the way injectable fillers quickly degrade amongst the muscles in the brow.
- Forehead Creases – Another problematic area is the forehead. BOTOX® can force the muscles beneath the skin to relax, which in turn reduces the appearance of lines and other imperfections.
- Jaws – Using BOTOX® to contour is a recent development. It can reduce the prominence of the masseter muscles, which in turn makes the jaw have a more rounded shape.
BOTOX® as a Non-Surgical Option
Another major benefit of BOTOX® is its ability to be used without invasive medical treatments. BOTOX® injections produce no scars, require no downtime, and work almost as soon as the BOTOX® is injected into the muscle tissue.
The results can last for six months to a year. Some treated areas may last longer than one year, but this is outside the normal range of expectations.
Quick Treatment Options
Another major benefit of BOTOX® injections is the fact that they can be completed quickly by a skilled professional. This allows you to receive injections during a short period before resuming the remainder of your day.
Injections typically take 10 to 20 minutes, though it is worth noting that more complicated situations may extend the time it takes to administer them.
Mixing Non-Surgical Options with BOTOX® Treatments
Other non-surgical treatments, such as micro-needling and laser dermal abrasion, often produce results that are limited by your physiology.
These results can be diminished when the muscles flex due to the way that underlying structures interact with the face.
When administered after receiving these treatments, BOTOX® can increase the longevity of the results while enhancing the overall smoothness of your skin.
