BOTOX® is one of the best-known treatments for the early signs of aging. This cutting-edge solution is capable of relaxing dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and across the brow. It produces a series of subtle changes by relaxing the expressive muscles that are the primary cause of crow’s feet, frown lines and fine lines around the lips. These injections typically take mere minutes to complete, and they rarely entail any downtime. BOTOX® injections may be the perfect way to rejuvenate your appearance.
Unlike facelifts and other invasive procedures, BOTOX® injections involve virtually no downtime. These treatments are typically completed within minutes and apart from mild redness and swelling, there are very few after-effects to contend with. In fact, most patients are able to immediately resume most of their regular activities as soon as their procedures are done.
This solution works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that are used for laughing, smiling, frowning and making other facial expressions. As these muscles relax, surface tension dissipates and the skin takes on a youthful and line-free appearance. While the full effects of BOTOX® injections can take days to manifest, many patients experience noticeable improvements within just hours of their procedures.
In addition to being both minimally-invasive and capable of producing incredible results, BOTOX® injections are also considered to be a fairly low-risk anti-aging solution. That’s because these treatments aren’t designed to be permanent. The good news, however, is that treatments can be safely repeated in the comfort of our office for ongoing results.
By inserting only a very minute amount of the BOTOX® solution into the targeted treatment areas, our experienced and skilled provider will be able to gently release fine lines and wrinkles without affecting your ability to make a broad range of natural-looking facial expressions. Best of all, this treatment is performed via injection, so discomfort is minimal.
BOTOX® is often the perfect anti-aging treatment for those who are reticent to commit to costly and invasive procedures that involve cutting, tissue removal and permanent results. This solution works best for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles resulting from facial movement and the gradual build-up of tension within the expressive muscles. In many cases, it can be safely used with a variety of other cosmetic treatments, including dermal filler technologies.
