Beauty concerns today can include acne, jowls, eyebags, and more. However, one of the common concern for many patients is wrinkles. Wrinkle treatments can range from quite simple to incredibly complex today, but Botox® is among the easiest and fastest options. If you want to face the summer sun with confidence (and wrinkle free!) Botox® may be the best possible way to do so. Read on to learn all the essential information about this amazing wrinkle treatment.
Botox® is injected directly within the muscles that control facial expressions. Every time that you squint, frown, or make other facial expressions like raising your eyebrows, it creates folds and wrinkles in the skin. Over time — and especially as a person ages — those small lines linger longer and longer. Botox® softens those muscles to prevent these movements from happening below the skin. The result is smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. You’ll still be able to form facial expressions, as the treatment can be tailored to provide a soft result.
What Areas Can Botox® be Used In?
Most areas with wrinkles can be good choices for Botox. This includes:
- The lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- The lines next to the eyes (crow’s feet)
- The horizontal lines on the forehead (worry lines)
How Long do Botox® Treatments Last?
Botox® treatments generally last for three to four months in most patients. If you’re prompt with follow-up treatments you may notice that the Botox® will start to last longer and longer. Many patients need to have a touch-up just two or three times a year once the product has been well established in their body.
