For many years, BOTOX® has been used to turn back the clock and fight the signs of aging. When trying to look younger, many patients consider this treatment because it’s very effective against unwanted wrinkles. Each year, millions of these treatments are performed, and the popularity of BOTOX® doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
How BOTOX® Fights the Signs of Aging
When this purified protein solution is administered in tiny amounts, it allows you to fight back against the natural signs of aging. During the treatment, small concentrations of the BOTOX® solution are injected into key areas of the face, and by preventing nerve cells from sending signals to your muscles, the solution temporarily relaxes certain muscles in the face.
Put simply, BOTOX® prevents specific muscles in your face from contracting, and as a result, it eliminates many of the unwanted wrinkles caused by aging. Many patients like this treatment because the treatment is quick, and to maintain the results, you may only need one treatment every six months or so, depending on the situation.
What Can It Treat?
If you’re considering this treatment, you should know what it can be used for. BOTOX® is commonly used to eliminate the frown lines that form between the eyebrows, and it’s also effective against wrinkles that form around the eyes. This treatment is even useful for the horizontal wrinkles that appear on the forehead, and it can soften the fine lines around the mouth.
A Look at the Procedure
Since BOTOX® treatments are entirely non-surgical, there is almost no preparation needed, and each individual treatment typically takes only minutes. During the procedure, the solution is skillfully injected into specific areas of your face.
