BOTOX® is a fast, safe and non-invasive procedure for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. This FDA-approved injectable can temporarily relax the muscles responsible for facial expression. These muscles are known to cause the formation of dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that form along the eyes, mouth and forehead, due to repetitive movement and accumulated tension. Lasting just 10 to 15 minutes, a BOTOX® treatment can quickly smooth out these superficial creases for a more attractive and youthful appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Given that BOTOX® injections are non-invasive, the requirements for candidacy are not as stringent as they are with other, more extreme measures. The best candidates are in good general health and do not have any history of neuromuscular diseases. It is important to remember that BOTOX® is a temporary solution to fine lines and wrinkles.
Why Choose BOTOX® for the Treatment of Fine Lines?
Your treatment will be fast enough to complete right on your lunch break. With few potential side effects, no special aftercare and no recovery time, this is one of the easiest ways to gain a smoother and more youthful visage. If you’re looking for a safe, affordable and easy way to erase fine lines and mild to moderate wrinkles, this treatment could be right for you.
The process by which BOTOX® works is effective on dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkling that is caused by ongoing use of the expressive muscles. During your consultation appointment, our provider can help you determine if this is the type of wrinkling that you have.
What to Expect from Results
BOTOX® can have a remarkable effect on fine lines and wrinkles across the targeted area and with minimal risk. Given that there is no tissue removal and no need for incisions, the typical recovery time for this procedure is both nominal and easy.
BOTOX® results are rarely immediately apparent, but you may notice a significant decrease in fine lines and wrinkles within just one to two days. You can expect further improvements within the first one to two weeks after your treatment. BOTOX® results typically last for four to six months. Fortunately, it is entirely safe to have this procedure repeated three to four times per year.
