Injectable treatment options are popular non-surgical solutions to help reduce the appearance of frustrating signs of aging. One option is the use of FDA-approved neuromodulators like BOTOX. Both products fall into the botulinum protein type-A category. While they are in the same category, these two treatments are not interchangeable. Bentley SkinCare and Wellness can help you determine which one is best for you during a consultation with our team in Springfield, MO.
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment option that can help reduce pesky signs of aging – such as fine lines and wrinkles – in a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment session.
Using BOTOX to treat an area of the face may take less product as its formula is less diluted.
Diffusion is also an area where these two products differ. BOTOX stays in the area is it injected. BOTOX is used in an area where precision is needed.
How BOTOX Works?
Both products work to eliminate signs of aging in areas of the face that are impacted by repeated muscle contractions. Whether is it a fine line left by frowning or crows feet from squinting, the muscles under the skin need to be relaxed.
These products work by being injected directly into the muscles tissue to cause it to relax. This occurs as the product blocks the nerve impulses temporarily so the muscle can no longer tighten up. After injections, there will be a decrease in muscle movement, and it will relax the muscles.
What to Expect from BOTOX
Depending on the treatment area and your specific goals, our team may recommend the use one or both products. The outcomes can typically be seen immediately. Beyond the cosmetic outcomes, you may also feel the release of the muscle tension under the skin. These outcomes last between 3 to 6 months. A regular series of treatments can help achieve and maintain the best results.
