Men and women alike can reach a point in their lives when they may be less than satisfied with the look of their facial skin. They may notice wrinkles that make them look older than they are or less attractive than they once were. Smile lines, crow’s feet, forehand lines – all of these signs of aging can become more apparent with the passage of time. Luckily, today there are things that can be done to correct wrinkles. Many people seek the assistance of a professional to learn about available solutions for their skin wrinkles and receive treatment. One of the most common treatments administered is BOTOX, and for good reason.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable treatment administered by a skilled professional that is used to relax the muscles of the face. When facial muscles contract, they can create the look of wrinkles in the loose skin above the contracted muscle. So, a relaxed muscle alleviates the appearance of wrinkles. This mechanism of action works differently than fillers, which are instead used to plump up the area of injection.
How Fast are Results Noticed and How Long Will They Last?
After just one treatment, patients should see results. The results can take effect within days. These effects can last for months at a time.
How Many Treatments Can a Person Receive and Where?
There is no set number of treatments established by the FDA because it is an extremely safe treatment. BOTOX is used on a variety of muscles in the face and can be used in multiple areas at once. It is most commonly used to treat eyebrow lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet.
Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX?
This treatment has been approved for use by healthy adults between the ages of 18 and 65. This safe treatment for wrinkles is a great option for a lot of people who are looking to freshen up their appearance without invasive procedures.
