BOTOX® is a fast-acting and incredibly effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles across the visage. This FDA-approved, purified protein can temporarily immobilize the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are currently the most popular anti-aging treatment among those who are looking for an easy, non-invasive way to dramatically improve their appearances.
Is BOTOX® the Right Anti-Aging Solution for You?
People who are reticent to commit to invasive procedures that are designed to produce permanent or semi-permanent results are often best-suited to BOTOX® injections. This treatment temporarily blocks nerve signals to the muscles that are used for facial expression. This in turn, releases accumulated tension within the targeted areas, thereby causing fine lines and wrinkles at the surface of the skin to smooth out. The effects of this solution last for just four to six months. After this time, full-functionality will be restored to the expressive muscles and the treatment will need to be repeated. As such, if you are unhappy with your results, you’ll simply need to wait for these to fade away. With BOTOX®, there is minimal risk of getting stuck with a look you don’t like. Best of all, our provider can safely repeat your BOTOX® injections two to three times each year to help you maintain a continuously line-free and youthful-looking visage.
What to Expect During Your BOTOX® Treatment
These injections are made with short, fine-tipped needles such as those that are used for insulin injections. Moderate amounts of BOTOX® will be injected at the corners of the eyes to eliminate crow’s feet, across the brow to reduce the appearance of frown lines, and around the lips to address dynamic wrinkles in this area. By using only a very nominal amount of this solution, our provider will be able to decrease the appearance of age-related wrinkles, without significantly affecting your ability to make a broad range of facial expressions.
Given that this procedure is entirely non-invasive, it does not entail any cutting, tissue removal or recovery period. Once your BOTOX® injections have been completed, you will be immediately free to resume your normal activities. This is why this procedure is commonly referred to as the “lunchtime face lift”. Within mere minutes, you can have crow’s feet, frown lines and moderate wrinkling around the lips smoothed away.
BOTOX® is not meant for the correction of severe wrinkling across the visage such as deep creases along the nasio-labial folds or other signs of age-related volume loss.
