BOTOX® is currently one of the most popular non-invasive solutions for dynamic facial wrinkles. These are wrinkles that are caused by the constant and long-term use of expressive muscles. Years of smiling, frowning or physically showing concern or surprise can lead to the development of laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and noticeable wrinkling around the lips. BOTOX® injections can smooth these wrinkles out by blocking the messages from the nerves that control expressive muscles. This, in turn, causes the muscles to relax and creates a virtually line-free and far more youthful visage.
How to Know if BOTOX® Is Right for You
If you’re eager to turn back the proverbial hands of time by addressing the early and most common signs of aging, BOTOX® injections could be right for you. These treatments are ideal for people who aren’t ready to commit to invasive, high-risk procedures that involve actual cutting and tissue removal. Injections typically take just 15 to 20 minutes and there is no significant downtime. The treatments offer a safe and easy way to smooth out unattractive lines and creases for natural-looking results.
Results are Temporary
One of the best reasons to use BOTOX® in favor of a more invasive procedure is the fact that the results only last just three to six months. If you have never used cosmetic treatments before, this is a very low-risk way to gauge whether or not you like your new look. BOTOX® procedures can be safely performed three to four times per year, which means that you’ll spend just one hour annually to maintain a fresh and youthful appearance.
What to Expect from Your Treatment
During a session, the BOTOX® is simply injected into the areas that need it. Once your injections are complete, you will be immediately free to return to your normal activities. While you may see a noticeable lessening in facial wrinkling just several hours after your treatment has been performed, the full effects of BOTOX® may not manifest for five to seven days.
