When a person is in their late teens, their youth is something they just take for granted. They look in the mirror every single day and they see vibrant, tight, healthy skin. However, once a person hits their late twenties and early thirties, their youthful appearance begins to fade. One day a person looks in the mirror and is surprised to realize that they look older. It is usually during these moments that a person first starts thinking about taking steps to reverse the signs of aging. Many individuals in their early thirties are not to the point where they want to have an entire facelift done. However, they do want to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For individuals in these circumstances, BOTOX® is a dream come true.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an effective treatment that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and can even prevent wrinkles from forming. The type of wrinkles that we are discussing here are dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear when a person smiles, frowns or make some other facial expressions. These wrinkles come as a result of the movement of the muscles underneath the skin relaxing or contracting. As these muscles relax and contract, the skin surrounding these muscles relaxes and contracts, as well.
BOTOX® works because it prevents the nerves in the face from sending signals to facial muscles. As a result, the skin around the muscles does not move and dynamic wrinkles are not formed. BOTOX® is strongly recommended for individuals who have prominent wrinkles around their eyes, on the surface of their cheeks and around the perimeter of their lips.
Although BOTOX® is not designed to be a permanent solution to fine lines and wrinkles, it does present a long-lasting effect. As muscles stay relaxed, the skin on top of them stays smooth. Crow’s feet, lip lines and frown lines disappear.
Who Performs BOTOX® Injections?
BOTOX® injections are performed by a medical professional. Since the procedure is non-invasive, anesthesia is not needed. The results of the treatment are immediately seen. Prior to treatment, the specialist will examine your face, identifying the locations where you have the most wrinkles and determining the severity of your wrinkles. During the procedure, the BOTOX® solution is injected into the desired area. Most people do not even feel the injection. For most patients, it takes about three days for BOTOX® to have its full effect. The results can last for six months or more. After multiple sessions, the muscles in your face will actually become trained to stay relaxed. This means that you will see a longer lasting improvement after each session. After a few sessions, you will be able to schedule your sessions farther and farther apart.
