Even with diligent skincare and a healthy lifestyle, it’s often necessary to have a strategic plan for fighting off the early signs of aging. This is especially true when it comes to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. These are the fine lines and creases that manifest at the surface of the skin due to tension in the underlying muscles. BOTOX® is a product that can quickly smooth dynamic wrinkles away. Best of all, treatments take only minutes to perform and do not entail any extended recovery times. Following is everything you need to know about this non-surgical and incredibly popular procedure.
How BOTOX® Injections Erase Fine Lines and Wrinkles Across the Visage
BOTOX® is an effective neuromodulator that can temporarily relax the expressive muscles across the treatment area. Every time you smile or make any other facial expression, your expressive muscles are engaged. It’s the tension caused by these movements that manifests as wrinkles at the surface of the skin. Once the treatment has been used to make the expressive muscles relax, you’ll be able to smile, frown and make every expression you used to without worrying about the development of dynamic creases.
About three to six months after you receive your treatment, the effects of BOTOX® injections will gradually abate. As such, if you don’t love the way that BOTOX® makes you look, you can expect to regain your pre-treatment appearance within a very nominal amount of time. If, however, you want to extend the effects of your treatment®, our specialist can repeat your injections as needed.
During and After BOTOX® Treatments
The typical BOTOX® treatment only takes a few minutes to complete. We will provide just enough of the product with each injection to ensure adequate movement within the facial muscles for making a variety of natural expressions. This treatment has been FDA-approved for use around the eyes, across the brow and at the mouth.
As soon as your injections are complete, you can return to your normal activities right away. That’s why this treatment is being called the lunchtime facelift. With quick treatment time and no recovery period, this option is ideal for those who can’t take a lot of time out of busy schedules.
Deciding If BOTOX® Is Right for You
BOTOX® is suitable for the treatment of moderate dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines and fine lines around the lips. Most adults in generally good health make good candidates for treatment. If you are unsure, we can help you find out if this treatment is right for you during your consultation.
