What Is Botox?
Botox is a highly purified version of botulinum protein type A. It is one of the most common and effective injectables being offered today, and works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses that signal muscles to contract. This minimally invasive aesthetic treatment is FDA-approved, and it can be used on dynamic lines. Dynamic lines are those created by natural facial movements and expressions.
How It Works
Throughout life, people repeat the same facial expressions, with the skin moving right along with the delicate facial muscles beneath. As time passes, the skin covering these areas of constant movement naturally creases. Botox addresses these dynamic lines by blocking nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. Because it prevents the muscles from contracting, they relax so that the skin on top smooths out, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Who Is It For?
Most generally healthy adults who are frustrated with the appearance of dynamic lines. Botox is most often used on long lines, laugh lines, and fine lines above the lip. Besides treating facial wrinkles, when applied correctly, it may also be used to rejuvenate the area around the brows, eyelids, and corners of the mouth.
What to Expect
Botox may be used along with injectable fillers for total facial rejuvenation. An especially satisfying aspect of treatment is the immediacy of results, which patients usually see within two to three days. However, it can take up to two weeks for the muscles to relax fully. Final results typically last approximately three to four months, but with regular maintenance sessions, they may be virtually continuous.
Since treatment is minimally invasive, there is generally little to no preparation required. However, our professional staff will provide you with all the information you need to best prepare for a treatment session.
Treatment usually causes minimal discomfort, and treatment is quick. There is no set downtime. Most individuals resume their normal activities immediately. However, our professionals can answer any questions you may have about recovering from treatment.
