BOTOX® injections are perfect for people who want to freshen up their appearance right before big events. Whether planning a vacation or preparing for your wedding, getting a line-free and youthful-looking visage can provide a tremendous boost in confidence. BOTOX® is powerful, FDA-approved solution that’s capable of instantly relaxing wrinkles at the eyes, across the brow and around the mouth. If you are dealing with frown lines, perioral lines or crow’s feet, this treatment can minimize or eliminate these creases within minutes.
Why BOTOX® Is the Ideal Treatment for Those in Need of Rapid Results
One treatment session typically takes just minutes to complete. In fact, these treatments are so fast that many people are calling BOTOX® the “lunchtime facelift”. During your treatment session, minute amounts of the solution are injected into facial areas that are showing the signs of dynamic wrinkling. The treatment area will then likely be briefly massaged, and then patients are free to go.
There’s no downtime with BOTOX®, and there are no serious after effects that patients must contend with either. Once your treatment is done, you can go right back to work or resume your regular activities.
What Dynamic Wrinkles Are and How BOTOX® Eliminates Them
Dynamic wrinkling is wrinkling that’s caused by facial movement. When you laugh, smile, frown or make other common expressions, tension builds within the expressive muscles that control these movements. Over time, this tension will start to manifest at the surface of the skin in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are often easiest to see when facial movements are being made. As soon as the face is relaxed and still, however, dynamic wrinkles disappear.
BOTOX® has the ability to deeply relax the expressive facial muscles by blocking signals from the nerves that control them. As your expressive muscles relax, fine lines and wrinkles at your brow, near your eyes and around your mouth will be released. Given that our specialist will deliver very small amounts of the solution during your treatment, you’ll still be able to laugh, frown and smile naturally after the results of your injections have fully manifested.
How Long Does BOTOX® Last?
You may experience noticeable improvements immediately after your treatment. More commonly, however, the full results of a BOTOX® treatment will take a few days to show themselves. The effects typically last for about 3-4 months, after which you can come back for repeat treatments if you would like to maintain your results. The treatment can also be safely paired with a number of other non-invasive anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers.
