You only get better with age like fine wine. This is true in so many areas of our lives but sometimes our bodies don’t always get the memo; At some point our bodies will start to show off some of its experience. This is when we will begin to see some wrinkles and blemishes. This is nothing to be ashamed of though, and there are solutions to help you control it.
One way that you’ve probably heard of to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful is with targeted botulinum injections. Botulinum toxin is known more commonly as Botox®. Xeomin and Dysport are other brands of the same product.
WHAT ISSUES CAN BOTOX TREATMENT HELP WITH?
These FDA–approved anti-aging treatments are ideal for the treatment of quite a few issues that you may be experiencing:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines on the forehead
- Furrows between the brows
- Platysmal bands on the neck
BOTOX, HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have over forty muscles in our face that make it possible for us to do daily activities like smiling, laughing and chewing our food. Just like any muscle, these muscles over time become toned when you use them consistently, and over time this causes wrinkles on the skin. These wrinkles may make you seem tired or more experienced, but by applying the Botulinum to the muscles, you can relax them. This smooths them out and allows you to regain that fresh youthful look.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF BOTOX® INJECTIONS?
The effects of Botox®, and similar products can last for up to eight full months and they can also be repeated as needed. The results are smoother wrinkle free skin. There has also been research that shows that these products can be used for other purposes such as treatment of excessive sweating, prevention of migraines, relaxation of twitching eyes, and in patients with spastic muscles.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY TIME?
Botox treatment as well as Xeomin, and Dysport treatments typically takes about twenty minutes. After the treatment is done, the patient may experience a bit of redness around the treated areas, and this can be treated with ice. It generally takes about fourteen days before the injection is fully active.
