Of all the cosmetic procedures out there, BOTOX® is one of the most popular and well-loved. There are many reasons that this is a great treatment option for both women and men. This FDA-approved wrinkle-relaxing treatment is great for fading the fine lines and wrinkles that make us look older than we feel. You are warmly invited to learn more information about BOTOX® injections.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
Dynamic wrinkles, which is what BOTOX® is designed to treat, are caused by repetitive facial movements. Every time we smile, squint, frown, etc., fine lines and wrinkles appear at various points in the face. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for the expressions causing the wrinkles. Common types of dynamic wrinkles treated include frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
After BOTOX® injections, which typically take just minutes, it will take 24-72 hours for the muscles to stop moving. At our office, the injections are given very precisely and will not leave you with a “frozen” face. You can expect to see the lines and wrinkles fading after just days of your treatment.
The results of BOTOX® typically last for months at a time. If you do not receive follow-up treatments, the muscle movements will gradually resume and the dynamic wrinkles will reappear.
