Every time you laugh, smile, wrinkle your nose in distaste or use any other facial expression to communicate emotion, tension builds in the expressive muscles responsible for these movements. Over time, this tension becomes visible at the surface of the skin in the form of tiny dynamic wrinkles around the mouth and eyes and across your brow. Dynamic wrinkles are considered to be among the earliest signs of aging. The good news is that it’s possible to minimize or even eliminate dynamic wrinkles with BOTOX® treatments.
Temporarily Relax Your Expressive Muscles
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that has been approved by the FDA for a broad range of cosmetic and general health issues. This treatment has proven effective for alleviating migraine headaches, reducing excessive sweating and treating many other ailments. In terms of physical aesthetics, however, BOTOX® can instantly smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by tension in the underlying muscles. It does this by blocking the nerve signals that control these muscles. By strategically injecting the product into areas with dynamic wrinkles, our specialist can help you regain a smooth and line-free visage that’s far more youthful-looking overall. Best of all, patients retain the ability to make all the same natural facial expressions they could before they were treated.
It’s important to note that results typically last about six months. After this time, the treatment begins to wear off, and you’ll need to have your injections repeated if you wish to maintain your aesthetic improvements. Many people, especially those who are wary about committing to more permanent procedures, view this as a benefit. BOTOX® can also be paired with a number of other non-invasive anti-aging treatments for those who want individualized and multi-pronged treatment plans.
Why BOTOX® Is So Popular
BOTOX® isn’t just effective; it’s also an incredibly easy and hassle-free treatment. Your treatment should only take a few minutes to complete. More importantly, you won’t have to set any time aside for an extended recovery period. As soon as all your injections have been finished, you’ll be able to leave the office and can go back to your normal activities right away. This is why many people are referring to this treatment and all other procedures like it as “lunchtime facelifts”. This treatment is so fast and easy that you can actually have it performed during your regular lunch break.
What You Can Expect During Your BOTOX® Procedure
The surface of the skin is often numbed with a topical agent or an ice pack before injections are started. Our specialist will make a brief series of injections around your eyes, at your forehead and around your lips according to your cosmetic goals. As soon as all the targeted areas have been addressed, you will be free to go.
It usually takes a few days to a week for the total effects of BOTOX® to manifest. Despite this, you’ll likely see a considerable lessening in facial wrinkles immediately after your injections are complete. This treatment has the ability to smooth out crow’s feet, frown lines and thin, vertical lines at and around the lips.
