What Is BOTOX?
As one of the most well-known and extensively studied aesthetic, anti-wrinkle treatments on the market today, this FDA-approved injectable has proven itself effective in treating both frown lines as well as crow’s feet. More than 10 million vials of BOTOX have been sold in the United States alone since 2002. This allows patients to take comfort in knowing that this injectable has been shown to provide stunning anti-aging results from a simple, affordable injection.
How Does It Work?
There are several different factors–genetic, environmental, and internal–that can lead to the development of facial wrinkles and folds. One of the most common causes is aging due to the contraction of the muscles. You make countless facial movements every day by speaking, eating, and expressing yourself. These repeated contractions cause the face to form fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the mouth, eyes, brows, and forehead.
When injected into the facial muscles, BOTOX causes them to slow down and relax. This inhibits them from contracting entirely, which allows the folds and fine lines to smooth and soften temporarily. The primary substance in BOTOX–botulinum toxin–only stays in the body for about four months. That means periodic injections are necessary to maintain the positive changes.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
It usually takes no longer than 30 minutes to complete a BOTOX injection session, and clients typically have little to no downtime. Itching, bruising, swelling, muscle stiffness, or rash may occur shortly after treatment, but they usually subside within a few days. Most patients will begin to see dramatic improvements in the appearance of their wrinkles and fine lines in as little as 24 hours.
