Everyone ages somewhat differently, but lines and wrinkles on the skin seem to be a typical part of the aging process for nearly everyone. Some people see fine lines appearing as early as their 30s in the areas surrounding their eyes or across their foreheads. Others may not see lines and wrinkles until they are well into their 50s or even their 60s. However, no matter what age you are, you do not have to simply put up with wrinkles. With a simple and easy BOTOX treatment, you can experience smooth, youthful skin once again.
What Is BOTOX?
A BOTOX injections consists of a purified protein solution. This solution is injected in the tiniest possible dosages beneath the skin and into the muscles that cause expressions across the face. Once the BOTOX treatment is in place, these muscles will relax, leaving your face smooth even when you are making expressions.
BOTOX Treatment Uses
BOTOX is particularly useful on expression lines that appear in your skin when you are smiling or frowning. If you have expression lines, you may feel as if you look tired or grumpy much of the time.
It is most frequently used around the outer corners of the eyes, between the eyes, and across the forehead. We can also use it to treat fine vertical lines around the lips and some small lines between the mouth and the nose. With precise applications, it can also produce an uplifted appearance above the eyes and at the tip of the nose, or it can be used to smooth out horizontal lines on the neck.
This treatment is most often chosen when you already have fine lines and wrinkles on your face. However, it can be used preventatively in your 20s and 30s to stop any wrinkles from forming.
What Is a Typical Treatment like?
This is a temporary treatment that must be used approximately every three to six months if you do not want to see your lines return. However, it is simple and far preferred to more invasive treatments that require a lengthy recovery time. After your treatment, you can immediately go back to your regular activities and can expect to see results within a week.
