As your skin matures, it changes. But for some people, these changes can be unwelcome. Expression lines and wrinkles are one of the most common cosmetic concerns in the country because they aren’t limited to a specific age. Many people, both younger and older, are looking for ways to treat these lines.
While a good, hydrating, anti-aging skincare routine can help, it isn’t always enough. Botox treatments can offer wrinkle reduction for patients of many different skin types and colors.
At AgelessYou Med Spa, we perform Botox injections every day, providing ageless beauty to patients who are looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. You can begin your ageless journey by setting up a consultation with us.
What Is Botox and How Does It Work?
Botox is a brand name for one of the most common and trusted neuromodulator products on the market today. This cosmetic treatment can help treat many of the lines and wrinkles that you have on your face. It is specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles which are the wrinkles that form when you make facial expressions.
When you raise your eyebrows, smile, or even concentrate, muscles in the face contract. Skin in the area will fold along the same line each time, eventually creating a permanent fold in the skin. Unless treated, these lines can become deeper and deeper as the skin becomes less elastic.
Botox injections target the root of the problem by reducing motion in the muscles. When the muscles aren’t as active, the skin can stay smooth. Botox achieves this by blocking neurotransmitters that tell the muscles to contract.
What Can Botox Injections Offer You?
Reduced Forehead Lines
Forehead lines can appear even in younger people if they are very expressive. These horizontal lines can become deeper and more noticeable over time. Botox targets the muscles that cause folding in the skin when you raise your eyebrows. Injections by an experienced injector like those at our practice can prevent lines from forming on the forehead while also allowing free movement of the eyebrows.
Improved Frown Lines
Some people are more genetically predisposed to developing deep frown lines which might appear as “v” shaped lines or vertical lines in between the eyebrows. Some people may not like the way their face looks when these lines are deep or prominent as it can change their resting expression. Botox can be a good choice for treating glabellar lines.
Relaxed Crow’s Feet
While crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes can accentuate your natural smile, they can also contribute to an aged appearance. Several Botox injections at the corner of each eye can help crow’s feet to be less prominent.
Relief From TMJ Pain
At our practice, we can treat TMJ pain in addition to our cosmetic uses for Botox. By relaxing the jaw muscles, we can help to relieve some of the tension that can cause pain for individuals with TMD. If you experience jaw pain, headaches, and tension, you can have a consultation with us to see if Botox may be able to help you.
What Are the Benefits of Botox Treatments?
Botox Is Minimally Invasive
With Botox, dynamic wrinkles can be minimized without surgery or invasive treatments. Botox can be performed with or without topical numbing cream and injections are not overly uncomfortable. You will simply feel a poke at each injection point.
Botox Has a Good Reputation
Botox has been used for years to help minimize wrinkles. It is backed by many clinical studies and has been thoroughly researched. Because of this, it has developed a strong reputation in the cosmetic industry.
Botox Is a No-Downtime Treatment
After Botox treatments, there is no need to interrupt your normal routine. You can go back to your day without worrying about social downtime or needing to rest for days at home. You will have certain guidelines from your doctor that you will need to follow to help you get the best results, but you are free to go about your day.
Botox Is a Customizable Treatment
Botox can be customized according to the look that you want. With our years of experience, we can create a subtle look that allows for natural movements. If you want to have less movement in your face, we can also achieve this. We always listen to you and the goals that you have for your aesthetics.
Common Questions About Botox
How Long Does Botox Take to Work?
Botox treatments will begin to work after 5-7 days. Your results will progress in the weeks following, usually peaking at around 30 days when you should notice the fewest wrinkles. This time is variable with every patient so talk to your doctor to find out what you can expect.
How Long Does Botox Last?
The duration of your results may also be different from other patients. Depending on how expressive you are, how aggressively your wrinkles were treated, and how fast your body absorbs the Botox injections, you may be able to expect to enjoy your results for 3-4 months before you schedule your next appointment.
