BOTOX® is an FDA-approved solution designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by tension in the expressive facial muscles. These are known as dynamic wrinkles, and they typically form around the lips and eyes and at the brow. BOTOX® is a safe, non-invasive and incredibly effective solution to many of the early signs of aging. If you are dealing with dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® treatments may be right for you.
BOTOX® treatments work by blocking nerve signals to the expressive facial muscles. Whenever you frown or smile, these muscles flex and contract. Over time, accumulated tension in the expressive muscles results in fine lines at the surface of the skin. Once the BOTOX® solution is strategically injected into areas that are showing the early signs of aging, dynamic wrinkles are instantly smoothed away.
With BOTOX® treatments, you won’t have to prepare for any extended recovery time, nor will you undergo any cutting or tissue removal. You may experience moderate redness and swelling across the injection site, but these things will abate shortly after your appointment. For these and other reasons, BOTOX® injections are often considered the gold standard in anti-aging treatments for people who are looking for a fast, easy and effective way to regain their youthful look.
People who have a realistic idea of what to expect regarding the results are usually happiest after BOTOX® treatments. It is important for clients to understand that BOTOX® will help them to look younger and more refreshed. Though BOTOX can take years off your face, it’s important to maintain realistic expectations.
It is also vital to note that BOTOX® is a temporary solution to fine lines and wrinkles. Most of our clients find that they want to have their injections repeated within about three to four months.
