We have been hearing about Botox treatment for so long now that it’s hard to believe this injectable solution didn’t always exist. This perception of Botox being the Wonder Drug of the Century is shared by many people that we meet. For those who have yet to start their love-affair with Botox, it is easy to feel somewhat behind the crowd. The fact is, though, every one of us ages differently. Furthermore, the way that we feel about our appearance as we age will differ from anyone else. We say you do you. If you are new to Botox, the best thing we can do for you is make sure you have the information you need to move forward with a sense of excitement rather than uneasiness.
An Important Note
There is no sense in getting into the ins and outs of Botox if the primary question about treatment is not answered first. No, Botox will not put your face into a deep freeze. The years of overuse seem to be behind us, for the most part. The results that are achieved with Botox refresh the face without altering appearance to such a degree that one cannot show emotion. Just remember, it is important to obtain treatment from a licensed injector with experience and a record of success.
Now on to the Basics
Botox works by releasing tension in the muscles. Initially, the FDA approved this cosmetic drug for glabellar lines, the ones you see between your eyebrows when you frown. Now, there is a far more extensive list of problems that can be corrected with Botox. This drug is often used to ease the appearance of crow’s feet and worry lines on the forehead. It is one of the best non-surgical treatments to lift a drooping brow line. Some providers even use it to treat migraines or to help patients with the issue of excessive sweating.
Wrinkle reduction is a simple process that takes less than an hour from start to finish. Patients are encouraged to avoid taking aspirin the week before injections, as this can increase the chances of bruising. After treatment, wrinkles progressively decrease over the course of about a week. Results can last from 3 to 6 months.
