Troubled by fine lines? BOTOX® injections are a safe and non-invasive way to turn back the clock and reveal a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® is the most popular botox injections Bradenton in the U.S. for a reason: it’s effective and can be done during a lunch break with virtually no side effects. Here’s how it works and how it can give you a fresher and younger-looking face.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX is an injectable treatment administered in-office as a series of injections just below the skin. It is actually a sterile and purified protein that temporarily blocks the signals from nerves to the muscles in the face. Treated muscles are unable to contract. When these muscles are forced to relax, it diminishes dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. BOTOX® can temporarily soften or even eliminate facial wrinkles caused by facial expression muscles including:
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines between the brows
The effects of BOTOX® typically last for a few months. As the protein wears off, muscle action is slowly returned and the wrinkles or fine lines will begin to appear again. Many people choose to maintain their results with regular treatments. Scheduling treatments at regular intervals helps the results last longer by making the muscles responsible for the wrinkles weaker over time.
Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment
BOTOX® delivers immediate results. A single office visit and less than 30 minutes can transform your face and give you a more youthful appearance with no downtime. Because it’s minimally-invasive and without a recovery period, it’s also ideal for people who are ready for anti-aging treatment but don’t need results as dramatic as surgery can provide.
The procedure itself is safe, quick and easy. Anywhere from 6 to 8 injections will be administered to the muscle just under the skin following application of local anesthesia. The physician may also ask you to contract the treated muscles after the injections by raising your eyebrows, squinting, and frowning to distribute the BOTOX® throughout the treatment site.
BOTOX® is intended for individuals aged 18 or older. It works on everyone with dynamic wrinkles as long as there is enough skin elasticity.
Am I A Good Candidate?
BOTOX® isn’t for everyone. Some people may not be good candidates, including those who take antibiotics, people with weakened facial muscles, anyone allergic to bovine products, and those who lack sufficient skin elasticity to see good results. If you have dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines, forehead creases, and/or crow’s feet and you are in otherwise good health, you may be a great candidate.
