If you’re looking for a quick and relatively easy way to freshen up your appearance, BOTOX® Cosmetic could be the perfect cosmetic treatment for you. This FDA-approved, purified protein solution can be injected into the skin around your eyes and lips and at your brow to quickly release crow’s feet and other fine lines and wrinkles. Given that there’s no incisions, no tissue removal and no recovery time with this treatment, this is currently the most popular procedure among consumers who want to regain their youthful appearances fast.
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Releases Dynamic Wrinkles Across the Visage
Dynamic wrinkles develop in areas that experience the most movement when facial expressions are made. Every time you smile, frown or laugh, your expressive muscles engage. As time passes, these movements can create a significant amount of tension. It is this tension that causes dynamic wrinkles to form. When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the skin, it effectively blocks the nerve signals that control the movements of the expressive muscles. Once this occurs, tension is released and fine lines and wrinkles across the treated area relax. There is currently no simpler or easier way to regain a smooth, line-free visage.
How the Treatments are Performed
Your treatment isn’t likely to last more than 20 minutes. Once the targeted areas have been identified, a quick series of injections will be made across the visage. It is often necessary to perform a brief facial massage after this process to ensure that the solution is evenly distributed. This sets the stage for smooth and natural-looking results. Once the work is done, you can immediately leave the office and resume your regular activities.
A Temporary Solution to Fine Lines and Wrinkles
In addition to being fast, BOTOX® Cosmetic is also a temporary and wholly non-invasive treatment. The effects of this solution typically last between three and six months. After this time, nerve signals to the expressive muscles will be restored and fine lines and wrinkles across the visage will likely reappear. This means that if you’re unhappy with the improvements that BOTOX® Cosmetic creates, you can simply wait for these changes to fade away on their own. Best of all, these procedures can be safely repeated as necessary for those who want to prolong their results. You can receive up to three BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in a single year.
Many people report seeing remarkable changes immediately after their injections are complete. Moreover, you can expect to see additional improvements over the days that follow your office visit as the targeted expressive muscles achieve a deeper state of relaxation and more fine lines and wrinkles fade away.
