Manage Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Other Signs of Aging With Botox
Everyone must deal with age showing up on their features eventually, but that doesn’t mean you can’t delay it. Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today and millions of people use it to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and prevent them from forming in the first place. Botox is a safe, effective treatment that will ensure your face looks more youthful.
What is Botox?
Botox is a solution with botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring compound that prevents wrinkles and fine lines by paralyzing facial muscles. Don’t be alarmed by this description! A skilled expert will know how and when to inject Botox to get the most natural results. This procedure is safe, affordable, and quick. We customize the treatment according to the patient’s requirements and preferences.
Our doctor will study your skin carefully to determine what kind of treatment you need and administer it accordingly.
Who is Botox For?
Botox is ideal for people with small signs of aging like small wrinkles on their forehead, at the corner of their eyes, and around their mouth. These are the most mobile areas of your face, especially if you’re expressive and don’t shy away from smiling.
Botox is a good preventative measure, which means even people in their mid to late thirties can benefit from it. This isn’t the most effective treatment for aged and mature skin. If you already have deep lines and wrinkles, we recommend considering dermal fillers instead of Botox.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by blocking the nerve impulses in your muscles. Your facial muscles relax and stay relaxed, which ensures the skin doesn’t see a lot of movement. This reduces the chances of lines and wrinkles. You look more relaxed, youthful, and can stall the signs of aging for several years.
As the muscles can’t contract and add to the stress, your previous lines and wrinkles also fade away over time. The muscles stop contracting immediately after the injection is administered.
What Can You Expect from a Botox Appointment?
During a Botox appointment, our doctor will discuss the pros and cons of the procedure and explain how it works. He will ask you a few questions about the kind of results you want to achieve and devise a treatment plan accordingly. Here’s a look at what happens after that:
- Our doctor will carefully pick points to administer the Botox injection. These points are chosen strategically to provide maximum benefits.
- The Botox is injected into the skin using very fine needles that don’t cause much discomfort. Some people only feel a slight pricking sensation and nothing beyond that.
- The procedure takes around 10 to 15 minutes and causes minor discomfort. The level of discomfort can vary from one person to another.
The injection sites will look like a mosquito bite for 30 minutes to an hour after the procedure. They will smooth out as the Botox is absorbed into the muscles. Don’t touch these sites and avoid tilting your head forward as much as you can. You should also avoid intense physical activity for 24 hours.
