What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is one of the most well-known, extensively studied aesthetic treatments on the market today. This injectable is FDA-approved to treat both crow’s feet and frown lines. While some people worry about the safety of this treatment, patients can take comfort knowing that it has been the subject of over 400 different clinical studies. Over 10 million vials of BOTOX® have been sold in the U.S. alone since 2002; why not join the scores of patients getting beautiful, anti-aging results from this simple injectable treatment?
How Does it Work?
Facial wrinkles and folds are caused by a variety of different genetic, environmental, and internal factors. BOTOX® addresses one of the most common causes of these signs of aging that is often overlooked by other aesthetic treatments — muscle contractions.
Every day, everyone makes a wide range of facial movements while speaking, eating, or forming facial expressions, all of which require the contraction of facial muscles. Over time, these repeated contractions cause the face to form wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas where the most facial movement occurs. These include the eyes, mouth, brows, and forehead.
BOTOX® is formulated with a substance called botulinum toxin. When injected into the facial muscles, this substance causes them to slow down and relax, inhibiting them from contracting fully. This allows the fine lines and folds above them to temporarily smooth and soften, giving patients a more youthful looking appearance. Because this substance only stays in the body for about four months, periodic injections are necessary to maintain any positive changes.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
Each BOTOX® injection session takes no longer than 30 minutes to complete and brings patients little to no downtime. While rash, itching, bruising, swelling, and muscle stiffness are common after treatment, these usually subside within a few days.
Within the first 24 hours after treatment, most patients begin to see dramatic improvements in the appearance of their wrinkles and fine lines that can last for up to four months.
