BOTOX® has the remarkable ability to erase fine lines and wrinkles and create a smoother and more youthful-looking visage overall. This injectable is fast-becoming one of the most popular cosmetic treatments out there. People can receive BOTOX® injections within mere minutes, with few potential side effects and absolutely no aftercare. This non-invasive procedure does not require any cutting or tissue removal and yet it can produce rapid, impressive and entirely natural-looking results.
What BOTOX® Can Do for You
BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that are responsible for the creation of facial expressions. Fine lines and wrinkles are most likely to develop in areas in which these muscles are frequently used. Laugh lines, frown lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the lips are largely the result of built-up tension and ongoing use of expressive muscles. BOTOX® effectively blocks the nerve signals to these muscles so that they can attain and maintain a relaxed state. This, in turn, releases wrinkles and smooths out the skin.
Why BOTOX® is So Widely Preferred
BOTOX® is FDA-approved for treating a wide variety of cosmetic and health issues. In addition to being an effective and non-invasive anti-aging treatment, it is also used for addressing hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraine headaches and various forms of chronic pain. The widespread use of BOTOX® and the diverse range of ways in which it can be used makes cosmetic patients feel comfortable regarding both the safety and the overall efficacy of this product.
When addressing fine lines and wrinkles with BOTOX®, people especially appreciate how easy the treatment process is. Injections take only minutes to complete. In fact, most treatments are done in just 10 minutes. There are no serious after-effects to worry about. As soon as your anti-aging treatment is complete, you will be free to immediately resume your normal activities.
How Long Does a Treatment Last?
As an anti-aging treatment, BOTOX® can block nerve signals to expressive muscles for three to four months. This limits the risk associated with this procedure given that the results are wholly temporary.
Many returning patients assert that multiple treatments tend to have a longer-lasting effect. This is believed to be the result of muscle conditioning, meaning that the longer treated muscles maintain their relaxed state, the less likely they are to develop the tension that is largely responsible for the development of wrinkles. Over time, muscle conditioning may have the ability to prolong the effects of recurring injections.
