No one likes to look into the mirror and see wrinkles or fine lines on their face. This is true even though most people understand that wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process.
Wrinkles happen because over time human skin becomes less elastic and loses its ability to retain moisture. Couple this with the fact that the supporting tissues underneath the skin produce less and less collagen as we age and the result is folding or creasing of the skin.
BOTOX® is a treatment that has been effective in reducing wrinkles as well as preventing new wrinkles from forming. When a person smiles or when they frown, their face forms wrinkles because of the way their muscles either pull or relax their skin.
BOTOX® relaxes muscle movement, which prevents the formation of wrinkles. The treatment is most effective on people who have wrinkles around their eyes as well as those who have wrinkles around their mouth and on their cheeks; however, it BOTOX® is not a permanent fix to these issues.
The BOTOX® treatment usually lasts for about three or four months. Once this time has elapsed, a person will need to redo their treatments to have the same results. With time, the facial muscles may become accustomed to being in a relaxed state and a person will require treatments less frequently.
The treatment session could be completed in under thirty minutes and may take around three days for it to take full effect. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to go back to your regular routine immediately.
BOTOX® is a very safe procedure that has been performed on tens of thousands of people over the past ten years. While the chance of side effects is rare, some do experience bruising in the area where they were injected. Others have temporary headaches.
Crooked smiles and uneven eyebrows can result if BOTOX® is not injected into the right area. That is why it is imperative that you choose a trained and experienced provider.
Prior to your procedure, the practitioner may need to review your medical history and your cosmetic goals to ensure that the treatment is appropriate for you.
