If you’re new to cosmetic injectables, we want to introduce you to one of the original anti-aging injectables: Botox. And if you are wondering “How does Botox work?” we have some answers for you!
What Does Botox Treat?
Botox has both medical and cosmetic uses. It treats dynamic wrinkles on the face that form from repetitive dynamic movements or facial expressions over time. Botox relaxes those muscles and disables nerve signals from sending messages to the muscles.
In the same way, Botox can also address more medical-related concerns, temporarily treating the problem by blocking messages from nerve signals to the muscles, temporarily resolving the issue.
How Does Botox Work for Frown Lines?
Frown lines appear as fine to deep lines between your eyebrows or as deep facial folds or creases. They can make you look angrier and older than you are. If you have frown lines affecting your confidence or how you view yourself, this injectable can relax the muscles around and between your eyebrows. You’ll get smoother skin, look more rested, and feel more youthful.
How Does Botox Work for Crow’s Feet?
You don’t have to be a certain age to develop crow’s feet. Aging and genetics play a part in the formation of these lines around the outer corners of the eyes. So, whether you’re 22 or 42 and have crow’s feet that appear when you smile and remain when your face is at rest, this injectable can erase those lines, smooth the area, and make you feel better.
How Does Botox Work for Forehead Lines?
Forehead lines, whether fine or severe, can affect how you view yourself, but you don’t have to live with them. If you have fine to deep, etched-in lines across your forehead, you may feel older or less attractive than you are. We want you to love the reflection you see in the mirror, and we’ll help you get to that point.
After a Botox forehead treatment, you’ll no longer have dynamic movements forcing your skin to move, and as a result, your skin will relax. You will get smooth, youthful-looking skin that makes you feel beautiful, younger, and confident.
How Does Botox Work for Lazy Eye?
However, you don’t have to live with a lazy eye anymore. Botox can temporarily treat and correct your lazy eye, relaxing the muscles and restoring balance to your appearance.
How Does Botox Work for Excessive Underarm Sweating?
If you have experienced excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), you know the embarrassment it can cause. However, you’re not alone, and there is a solution.
Botox can be injected into a specific area under the arm to temporarily reduce underarm sweating. You’ll be able to go through the day without feeling self-conscious or worrying about soaking the underarms of your shirts. Results vary among patients and begin to show up after a few days and lasting up to six months.
How Does Botox Work Chronic Migraines?
While chronic migraines don’t affect your appearance per se, they do impact your well-being, which can negatively impact your appearance. If you’ve struggled with migraines and haven’t found a solution to ease your pain, this cosmetic injectable can help provide that much-needed pain relief.
When you don’t have to deal with the daily or weekly pain that comes from chronic migraines, you’ll feel and look more refreshed and can do all of the things you love.
All About Botox
Botox is a neuromodulator blocking the messages between the nerve signals and the muscles in different areas of the face and the body. Muscles are then able to relax and wrinkles and fine lines disappear.
When used to treat medical-related conditions, the target muscles can relax to help relieve symptoms and pain.
There are many benefits associated with this injectable. It delivers results every time, treatments are quick, and the results show up relatively quickly. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to Botox, which in and of itself is a benefit. We can customize a treatment plan that meets your needs and aesthetic goals, and we will choose the correct number of units for each treatment area so that you get the results that you want.
Botox is essentially the origin of cosmetic injectables. It has been around the longest, it has been studied, and it has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for both cosmetic and medical concerns. Advancements continue to be made in where and how this injectable can be used. It has helped many people treat their cosmetic concerns and increase their confidence in the process.
It’s a Quick Treatment
No one likes to spend the majority of their day at an appointment. We value your time which is why we do everything possible to get you in and out of your treatment so that you can get on your way to enjoying your results that much sooner. When you schedule your appointment, know that you won’t be there long. You won’t have to rearrange your day because injections only take 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
There’s No Downtime
Many cosmetic treatments require that you plan around downtime, but not this one. As soon as your appointment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities. Your injector will provide you with all of the instructions you need on how to care for your skin after your injections. Typically, you’ll only be asked to avoid strenuous exercise and excess sun exposure for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
Once injected, your results will appear within two to three days. They will continue to improve as your muscles begin to relax and your skin finally gets the chance to rest. As your skin rests, your lines and wrinkles will gradually begin to fade and eventually disappear. As soon as you start to see them come back, typically within three to six months after your initial treatment, you can schedule another appointment to maintain your results.
Botox results are proven. You won’t have to go into your treatment wondering if you will get results, because this cosmetic injectable delivers results every time. Results do vary among patients based on the type and severity of their wrinkles, but you will see an improvement in the appearance of your skin after your treatment.
