Treat Wrinkles with BOTOX Injections
How Do BOTOX® Injections Work?
The active ingredient in BOTOX® is onabotulinumtoxinA. It is used to strategically relax certain facial muscles in order to temporarily restrict certain movements. BOTOX® injections are given in a very precise way to ensure that you do not end up looking plastic or “frozen.”
Due to the way it works, BOTOX® is appropriate for those looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions. Examples of these expressions include squinting, frowning, laughing, etc. When the muscles responsible for these facial expressions are restricted, the face has a chance to relax and “bounce back.”
The effect of BOTOX® is temporary, usually lasting up to four months. If you do not like your results, you are not stuck with them. Those people who love their new look can keep it up by getting a maintenance treatment done once every 4 months or so.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
If you are bothered by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by facial movements, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. These lines are known as “dynamic wrinkles.” BOTOX® injections are not designed to treat wrinkles that were caused by gravity or sun exposure.
This treatment is equally effective for both men and women. Although it used to be something associated with people of a certain age, more and more people in their 30s and 40s are having it done. There are many factors that impact when dynamic wrinkles make an appearance. If they bother you, there is no reason to put off treatment!
Why Choose BOTOX®?
There are many treatments out there that are aimed at rejuvenating the face. Some of the reasons that BOTOX® remains one of the most popular includes:
- Appointments can be done in as little as 15 minutes
- There is no downtime after treatment
- Just three appointments a year can keep wrinkles at bay
- Improvements are typically visible one week after treatment
- It is very safe and approved by the FDA
- It is the most researched drug of its kind
