Growing old is inevitable, but looking that way doesn’t have to be. One of the first ways that age shows up on the face is through fine lines and wrinkles. Many of these are caused by the normal facial expressions we make throughout our day. BOTOX® treatment is specifically designed to treat these dynamic wrinkles and expression lines, smoothing out your face and leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.
How BOTOX® Works
The theory behind BOTOX® treatment is that if you stop the muscle movements causing the wrinkles, the wrinkles will fade away. This has proven to be very effective. Injections are made very precisely into the skin so that the surrounding area remains unaffected. Approximately 48-72 hours after your injections, the muscles will become much more relaxed.
Results with BOTOX® treatment typically last 4 months, at which point you may require touch-up injections. When the effects begin to wear off, follow-up treatments will be required if you do not want the dynamic wrinkles and expression lines to return. Many people report that fine lines and wrinkles eventually stop coming back as dramatically. This is because the face has been trained to relax.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Treatment?
This treatment is particularly good on crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines (the ones that show up in between the eyebrows.) BOTOX® can be beneficial for both men and women concerned with lines and wrinkles in these areas. Although it may seem like a procedure only people who are “older” can benefit from, the fact is that people in their 30s and 40s or even younger can benefit as well. Many factors, such as genetics and sun exposure, contribute to when wrinkles show up. There is no reason you have to wait to be a certain age before you do something about it.
