By now, most people have realized how dramatically BOTOX® injections can reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. What many people do not realize, however, is just how quick and easy the process is! After the initial consultation, appointments can be as short as just minutes and result in absolutely no set downtime.
How Does BOTOX® Treat Wrinkles?
BOTOX® is designed to target a specific type of wrinkles. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these are the lines that show up on our faces when we make certain facial expressions. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Since these are many of the types of fine lines and wrinkles that bother people the most, it is easy to see why BOTOX® injections are so popular.
When BOTOX® is injected, it is done in a highly targeted way so that the surrounding area is unaffected. You will still be able to make a full range of facial expressions after this treatment. The active ingredient in these injections temporarily relaxes the facial muscles responsible for the dynamic wrinkles. This allows the face to relax and the wrinkles to fade.
What to Expect with the Injections
The first step is to sit down with us at a consultation. This is where we will ensure that this is the right treatment for you and discuss your goals. During the actual treatment, the BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the target areas.
Once injected, it can take days for the muscle movement to cease. Improvement in the appearance of wrinkles can usually be seen after one week. The temporary relaxation typically lasts for months at a time, and the injections can be repeated as needed for ongoing results.
Why Choose BOTOX® Injections?
There are many reasons that this treatment is the number one non-surgical procedure in the country. Some of the biggest benefits include:
