When it comes to age-defying, non-invasive cosmetic procedures, few are known better than Botox Cosmetic. Botox is a simple, non-surgical injection that smooths the deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. It was the first FDA-approved prescription product that improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When Botox is injected, it temporarily paralyzes the muscle that causes wrinkles and lines, leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful.
Botox treatments can be performed in several locations on the face, including between your browns (glabella), eye area (crow’s feet), forehead and perioral lines. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic. Over the years, Botox has proven time and time again to be a safe and effective way to treat and prevent skin with wrinkles and creases.
Botox results are temporary and last approximately two-four months, at which time the paralyzed muscle begins to regain movement and wrinkles return. Patients who undergo Botox regularly tend to need the treatment less often. The muscles are trained to relax or they weaken over time needing less medication for the desired effect.
It’s important to choose a plastic surgeon or dermatologist for your Botox treatments. They will work with you to create a personalized plan and recommend how often get Botox injections. This will ensure that you get the most out of your Botox and achieve natural, beautiful results.
