Restore Your Appearance with BOTOX Injections
By now, you have likely heard about BOTOX® injections. This popular treatment for treating dynamic wrinkles has become so popular it is a household name. It is a safe and effective way to turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate the appearance of your face. This non-surgical treatment option can begin to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles in a matter of minutes.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
In order to really understand how BOTOX® injections work, it is important to understand what dynamic wrinkles are. When we make facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting, wrinkles appear. In theory, these wrinkles disappear when we stop making the expression. As time goes on, sun damage and natural collagen loss results in the wrinkles no longer going away. These are known as dynamic wrinkles, and they are exactly what BOTOX® injections are designed to treat.
Examples of dynamic wrinkles include:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
The injection itself is made from a purified protein complex. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscles contributing to the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, your face has a chance to smooth out.
After your initial consultation, having BOTOX® injections can take as little as minutes. It will take the active ingredient days to begin to relax the targeted muscles. Results last for months. If you choose not to get follow-up treatments, muscle activity will return to normal and the fine lines and wrinkles will reappear.
Why Choose BOTOX®?
One of the reasons this treatment is so popular and trusted is it is backed by 15 years of clinical trials. It is the most researched drug of its type. Research continues to this day, and more and more conditions that BOTOX® can treat are being discovered all of the time. This treatment is non-surgical, minimally-invasive, and produces impressive results for both men and women.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate?
This is a good treatment option for anyone looking to reduce the appearance of dynamic fine lines and wrinkles. Due to the way the treatment works, it is not ideal for sun damage or wrinkles that were caused by gravity.
