This wrinkle treatment is ideal for both men and women. Continue reading below to learn more about Botox injections, and how the treatment can improve your look!
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable product that is FDA approved to reduce the signs of certain lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox is a form of Botulinum toxin that has been purified and diluted to be safe for cosmetic use. Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant, and when administered in the form of Botox, can significantly ease the appearance of some wrinkles.
How Botox Works?
When injected into facial muscles, the toxin temporarily blocks neuron activity, which prevents full muscle contraction. Because the muscles can no longer contract, the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial movements like frowning, raising the eyebrows, or squinting is significantly reduced.
Botox injections are an ideal solution for smoothing the skin between eyebrows, eliminating lines on the forehead, and reducing the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes.
What are the Advantages of Botox?
Fast and effective. A typical treatment will show improvement approximately after 4-7 days, and takes only 10-15 minutes to complete.
Little discomfort – we take great care in administering these injections.
There is little to no “down-time.” After the injections, you may resume normal activity or go back to work.
Creates natural-looking outcomes without evidence that you’ve had work done.
There is no decrease in sensation or numbness of treated areas.
The effects of injections are reversible; lasting 3 to 9 months.
Repeated injections of upkeep treatments may cause a muscle memory response to develop, thus enhancing the effects.
Who is the Best Candidate for Botox?
A wide range of patients benefit from Botox therapy. Typically, we treat patients from their 20′s to 80′s. Younger patients and those with fewer wrinkles are good candidates for this procedure because though their wrinkles may not be yet pronounced, Donna can administer Botox as a preventative measure to minimize the creasing of the skin.
