Prevent Wrinkles by Relaxing your Facial Muscles
Facial wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows (the ’11’) and around the eyes (crow’s feet) can make one appear older than they are. Age, heredity, sun exposure and the act of facial expressions can all contribute to facial wrinkles. Botox has been used for decades to correct and even prevent upper facial lines and wrinkles.
What is Botox?
Botox is a medication injected into the upper facial muscles to relax them. When facial expressions are made, the skin tends to bunch up where the muscles are the strongest. The act of the skin bunching over time causes etched lines to appear. When we are younger those lines disappear after the expression is made. But, unfortunately as we age, those lines stick around causing one to look older, sad and even tired.
What to Expect
During the appointment you will consult with your provider as to how much product is needed. Botox is measured out by unit and each patient requires a different amount depending on how strong his or her facial muscles are. A topical numbing cream or ice can may be applied before the injections are administered, but is not necessary for most patients.
After the treatment, it may take 3 to 14 days to see the full result, which should be a reduction in muscle movement and visible wrinkles. Touch up appointments may be necessary. The results from Botox injections last 3-6 months in most patients but can vary depending on how quickly the patient metabolizes the product.
How do I get started?
Getting started is as easy as contacting us online for an appointment. A consultation is required before treatment but can be done on the same day as the injections.
