Botox is directed at facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It targets dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by repeated muscular contractions, such as frowning and squinting. Botox, an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein works by relaxing the muscles that cause these dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Treatment areas where Botox can be used includes the frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines that run across the forehead, and the crow’s feet around the outer eyes.
Botox is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by the physician, you can still smile, frown and be expressive. A tiny amount of Botox is injected into the muscle being treated. A very fine needle and a small amount of liquid is used so the pain associated with the injection is minimal.
The Botox procedure is quick, simple, and there’s no downtime. Following a facial analysis by your physician and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure itself only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to perform.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of wrinkles and lines may continue to diminish for up to one week. The effects usually last up to four months. After repeated treatments, the effects may begin to last longer.
