BOTOX® injections are currently ranked among the most popular anti-aging treatments available. This fast-acting and incredibly potent solution has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of crow’s feet, frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles. If you have a major event coming up such as a wedding, a long-awaited vacation, or an important job interview, BOTOX® injections can help you rejuvenate your appearance. With just a single office visit, you can attain a fresh, healthy and undeniably youthful look that you’re sure be proud of.
How It Works
During a typical appointment, very small amounts of this solution are carefully injected into facial areas that suffer from dynamic wrinkling. Dynamic wrinkles are facial creases that are most apparent whenever the expressive muscles are being moved. For instance, when you smile, laugh or frown, tiny creases may form at the corners of your eyes, around your lips, or across your brow. BOTOX® is a purified protein serum that’s designed to stop the nerve signals that control select facial movements. Once the targeted muscles achieve a relaxed state, you’ll be able to convey emotions with facial expression, without having to worry about unsightly creases. Your surface skin will remain taut and smooth regardless of local movements, just like it did when you were younger. Once the effects of this serum wear off, normal nerve communication will resume and dynamic wrinkles will begin to reappear.
Why You Should Add BOTOX® to Your Anti-Aging Plan
This product isn’t just valued for its ability to eliminate dynamic wrinkles across the visage. People also love this product for its convenience. These injections are frequently referred to as lunchtime facelifts given that they can be completed within minutes and rarely entail any downtime. There are few aftereffects that you’ll have to contend with as well. In fact, many patients are able to immediately resume their normal schedules right after their appointments are complete. Best of all, because the effects aren’t permanent, you never have to worry about getting stuck with treatment results that you don’t like.
How Long Does It Last?
For most people, the effects of BOTOX® last a few months. After this time, it’s possible to safely have an additional treatment performed. You can receive more than one BOTOX® treatment each year to maintain consistently smooth and line-free skin. People who regularly include BOTOX® in their self-care plans, however, often experience extended benefits. After multiple treatments, the targeted muscles will become better conditioned is maintaining their relaxed state. As such, ongoing use of this product is believed to make it harder for dynamic wrinkles to manifest.
Are BOTOX® Injections a Good Preventative Measure?
Surprisingly, you don’t have to wait until you’re already dealing with dynamic wrinkling to start using this product. This solution is an excellent form of wrinkle prevention for those who are interested in simply preserving their youthful good looks for as long as possible. This treatment can also be safely paired with dermal fillers and many popular skin resurfacing treatments for those with more advanced facial wrinkling.
