The earliest and most common signs of the aging process include frown lines, crow’s feet and tiny creases around the lips. Fortunately, issues like these do not require surgical, invasive treatments. BOTOX® is an FDA-approved solution that can release fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead and around the mouth and eyes. BOTOX® treatments do not entail any significant risks or any recovery time.
What BOTOX® Treatments Can Do for You?
During the early stages of the aging process, people tend to develop dynamic wrinkles in areas that see the greatest amount of movement whenever facial expressions are made. These are tiny creases at the surface of the skin that reflect built-up tension within the underlying expressive muscles. Dynamic wrinkles are most noticeable whenever a person is laughing, frowning or expressing other emotions with the visage. BOTOX® treatments are designed to block nerve signals to the expressive muscles so that tension is released and creases at the surface of the dermis are instantly smoothed away.
How are these Treatments Performed?
Unlike facelift procedures and other invasive cosmetic solutions, BOTOX® does not involve any incisions or tissue removal. In fact, this procedure is often referred to as the “lunchtime facelift” given just how simple and hassle-free it is.
During your appointment, our provider will review your cosmetic concerns. Then, the BOTOX® solution will be skillfully injected into the areas in which dynamic wrinkles are apparent. Once the injections are complete, you’ll be free to leave the office and can resume your normal schedule right away. There is no recovery time and apart from mild redness and swelling, the after effects of the injections are minimal.
What are the Results of this Treatment?
Some improvements in fine lines and wrinkles across the visage may be apparent right away. It often takes one full week, however, for the total effects of BOTOX® to become apparent. As the nerve signals that control the expressive muscles are gradually affected, the treated areas will become smoother and increasingly line-free. Once the effects of the solution wear off, these injections can be safely repeated in the comfort of our office in order for you to maintain your new and more youthful appearance.
