In the past, growing older meant looking older or undergoing extensive surgery. BOTOX® has changed all that. This revolutionary treatment can help turn back the hands of the clock without taking you away from your regularly scheduled life.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® aims to tackle a problem known as dynamic wrinkles. Having fine lines and wrinkles when you make certain facial expressions is perfectly normal and happens at every age. As we grow older, however, our faces lose collagen and are not able to bounce back as well as they used to. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include forehead lines, frown lines, and the dreaded crow’s feet.
In order to get rid of these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles causing them. The surrounding area remains unaffected, and you do not need to worry about the results looking unnatural. After the injections are made, which takes as little as 10 minutes, the active ingredient goes to work.
You can enjoy the results of your treatments for a number of months. At this point, muscle movements will return to normal if you choose not to have follow-up treatments. Many people report that dynamic wrinkles eventually appear less dramatically after a few treatments of BOTOX®.
There are certain factors that can affect how long BOTOX® remains effective for you. They include:
- The facial expressions you make
- Your age
- How much exposure to the sun you get
- How many times you have had BOTOX® or other wrinkle relaxing treatments
