You have probably heard about how BOTOX® injections can help smooth out wrinkles and make you look younger. What you may not realize is how very simple it is to have this treatment done. It results in no downtime and only needs to be done 2-3 times a year to keep you looking revitalized and younger!
How BOTOX® Works
BOTOX® works by temporarily paralyzing specific facial muscles. It is designed to treat a certain type of wrinkles. They are the ones caused by repetitive facial movements and they are called dynamic wrinkles. Examples include forehead lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. When we are young and full of collagen, these lines fade as soon as we stop making the facial expression. Over time, they tend to stick around a bit longer, making us look older.
Once BOTOX® is injected, it takes a few days for the active ingredients to kick in and stop muscle movement. Due to the precise way we do injections, you do not have to worry about surrounding areas being affected or having a rigid face. As your face relaxes, the lines and wrinkles fade and new ones do not form.
Results with BOTOX® Injections
Once the effects of BOTOX® begin to wear off, muscle movements resume and the dynamic wrinkles will reappear if you do not have another treatment. That is why many people choose to come in for regular BOTOX® injections. Treatments only take a matter of minutes and result in zero downtime.
Who Should Consider BOTOX® Injections
This is a great treatment for women and men who are bothered by the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. It is not just for older people, and a growing number of people in their 40s and even 30s have been taking advantage of all BOTOX® has to offer. Due to the way it works, this is not the appropriate treatment for sun damage or wrinkles caused by gravity. BOTOX® is a great treatment for people wanting to look younger without having surgery. It is the most well-researched product of its kind and considered to be very safe.
