Botox has been a popular anti-aging treatment for decades. Cosmetic injectables like Botox are well-known for preventing the development of wrinkles and treating existing expression lines.
Whether you are in your 20s or your 60s, Botox can smooth fine lines and wrinkles to give your skin a smoother appearance. This FDA-approved treatment stops wrinkles in their tracks so you can maintain a youthful-looking complexion.
How Neurotoxins Work
Botox contains botulinum toxin A, a paralyzing agent that blocks nerve signals. When injected into your facial muscles, neurotoxins prevent the movements that create creases and expression lines. The communication between your facial muscles and brain is temporarily blocked so that your skin remains free of fine lines.
These neurotoxins are not harmful to your overall health. In fact, Botox is one of the safest cosmetic injectables on the market. It has been used for many years to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and other medical issues.
Over time, the paralyzing effect wears off, restoring full muscle control to your face. This is why patients need to continue Botox treatments to maintain their results. The neurotoxins only block nerve signals temporarily.
Botox treatment sessions are very short, only lasting between 15 and 30 minutes. You can go on with your day after your session is over. We apply a topical numbing cream to your face before we start the injections, so you should feel relaxed during your Botox session.
Botox is measured in units to determine how much of the substance is delivered to your muscles. Patients with deeper wrinkles and facial creases will need more units. If you are using Botox as a preventative wrinkle treatment, we will likely recommend fewer units.
Each injection delivers a specific amount of units to a targeted area on your face. Our skilled medical providers will come up with a plan based on your aesthetic goals and existing signs of aging.
Once your injections are done, you are free to leave the office. Botox treatments are very convenient and do not require any downtime or special aftercare tasks.
After your Botox treatment, your wrinkle-smoothing results will last between three and four months. In the next few days after your treatment, you will notice that your skin looks smoother and more youthful. The injections prevent new wrinkles from forming and relax existing expression lines for a more even complexion.
Most patients need several Botox treatments to maintain their youthful results. This means that every three to four months, you should come in for another session. When you start to notice your fine lines and wrinkles becoming visible again, it’s time to book a maintenance treatment.
The frequency of Botox treatments and the number of Botox units per treatment will vary with each patient’s individual goals. Our dedicated team will help you figure out the best treatment plan to combat your skin’s signs of aging.
Botox has many anti-aging benefits for patients looking to correct signs of aging on their faces. Although wrinkles and expression lines are a normal part of life, that doesn’t mean they have to be a part of your appearance.
Botox can reduce the appearance of the following signs of aging:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead “elevens”
- Forehead wrinkles
- Small fine lines
- Expression lines around your nose (nasolabial wrinkles)
- Permanent “worried” expression
These facial lines and creases can put a damper on your appearance. Botox relaxes the muscles to smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and creases for more youthful skin. This means that it can treat smokers’ lines and other lifestyle-related facial lines.
Botox can also create a more relaxed look on your face. Facial lines can make your expressions look stressed, worried, and aged. With Botox, you can expect your face to look more carefree and relaxed.
This treatment is minimally invasive, and most of our patients love their results. You can get the anti-aging benefits for your complexion without surgery and a long recovery.
