Time is not always so forgiving especially when it comes to the appearance and quality of our skin. As our skin loses hydration and youthful volume over the years, aging flaws can continue to form within our complexion. However, repeated facial expressions that we make on a daily basis can also lead to deeper lines in common problem areas of skin. Here at Defyin’ Time, it is our goal to help each one of our patients maintain youthful skin for as long as possible and unleash their natural beauty. If you are unhappy with fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX treatments can help you reclaim a younger-looking complexion!
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is designed to temporarily target and correct aging flaws at the root cause. Facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning, are performed by muscle contractions beneath the surface of skin. BOTOX works to penetrate deep to the underlying muscles to block the nerve signals that cause it to contract. This is effective at relaxing the muscle, and preventing the formation of aging concerns in the future. The secret behind this age-reversing injectable is an ingredient known as onabotulinumtoxinA, which works to prevent muscle contractions while smoothing the surface of skin. BOTOX can be used to reduce wrinkles, treat fine lines, and re-contour the face and neck. Treatments last 2-6 months but on average will last 3-4 months.
What to Expect
During an initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan is developed that is tailored to your specific skin needs and aesthetic desires. BOTOX treatments are performed in the comfort of our office, and prior to your session, you should avoid Retin A, chemical peels, and waxing. 7 days prior to treatment, avoid taking blood thinners to minimize bruising.
During treatment, BOTOX is applied to the targeted treatment area through a series of small injections. Once delivered, this specially formulated injectable works to bond to the muscle and relax it – while also diminishing aging signs on the surface. You can continue to notice results for younger-looking skin in a few weeks following your session. There is no required downtime afterwards. However, you should avoid exercise for 24 hours, rubbing the area or wearing a hat for 4 hours, and wait at least 24 hours or more before receiving any other treatments.
