Over time, everyone inevitably experiences signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles to some extent. Most of us know that things like exposure to the elements, gravity, heredity and other such factors play a role in how your skin ages. What you may not realize is that everyday activities like smiling, laughing and smoking can also have a particularly big impact on your skin. The facial movements that occur during these behaviors often cause the deepest, most noticeable lines on your face. BOTOX® has proven to be an effective solution for softening these lines and giving clients a more youthful appearance. Keep reading to learn how BOTOX® works and discover if this popular injectable may be right for you.
BOTOX® is a non-surgical treatment that effectively reduces signs of aging such as wrinkles, lines and furrows. When injected into the muscles surrounding the targeted wrinkle or line, the nerve signals are blocked, causing the muscles to relax and releasing the wrinkle above. The result is skin that looks naturally smoother and younger.
What to Expect
BOTOX® is an incredibly convenient treatment and can be performed over your lunch hour. It is completely non-surgical, minimally-invasive and doesn’t require downtime. This means you can go right back to work or performing your everyday routine immediately following your treatment. Results can last for many months. To maintain your results, we recommend that you come back for touch-up treatments as needed.
Candidates for BOTOX®
BOTOX® treatments consist of localized injections, so they are appropriate and safe for most people who wish to reduce dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and forehead lines formed by repetitive facial expressions. You should be relatively healthy and discuss your medical history with our specialist prior to undergoing treatment. During your consultation, our medical professional will advise you on the type of procedure that is best for you based on your medical history, aesthetic goals and unique circumstances.
BOTOX® remains a popular cosmetic treatment for wrinkle reduction due to the many benefits it offers. This quick and easy procedure provides significant results. Patients look younger, more relaxed and more confident following a treatment session.
