By now, almost everyone has heard of BOTOX® injections. This FDA-approved treatment is so popular because it is so simple yet effective. A quick and easy treatment can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, making you appear younger and more refreshed.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® aims to treat dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that appear as a result of repetitive facial movements, such as smiling, frowning, and squinting. Examples of dynamic wrinkles are crow’s feet and forehead lines. When we are young, the collagen in our face allows for these lines and wrinkles to fade as soon as we stop making the facial expression. Over time, this does not happen as quickly or as easily.
The active ingredient in BOTOX® temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for the facial movements causing the wrinkles. This gives the face time to relax. BOTOX® injections are very precise and do not affect the surrounding area.
Results with BOTOX® injections typically last for multiple months. Once the effects wear off, maintenance treatments are required if you do not want the dynamic wrinkles to reappear. Many people report that the lines and wrinkles return less dramatically after getting regular BOTOX® treatments.
What are the Benefits of BOTOX®?
The fact that BOTOX® is a household name is no accident. It is so popular for many reasons, including:
- It is very safe and approved by the FDA
- Treatments result in little to no downtime
- Results are dramatic yet natural-looking
- Treatments are both quick and easy
Although some people think of BOTOX® as something that only women of a certain age get, the fact is that both men and women enjoy this treatment. Dynamic wrinkles appear at different times for different people, and there is no reason to put off treatment if you are bothered by them.
