Smooth Out Wrinkles with BOTOX! Dr. Lee is Currently Scheduling Patients in the Little Rock Area Today!
Not all facial wrinkles are created equal. Some wrinkles occur as we age because our skin loses the natural hydrating acids which cause soft and plump skin. Other wrinkles are caused because they are located in the areas of our face where the skin moves the most. These areas are around the mouth, the forehead, around the eyes and the cheeks.
These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles and are created when we talk, smile and laugh. To smooth the skin and even out these kinds of wrinkles, Dr. Lee recommends using one of the most recognizable names in wrinkle-removal: BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is famous for a reason. It’s a go-to treatment for everyone from celebrities to musicians and everyday people like you. BOTOX® is popular because the treatments are easy, the procedure is quick, and the product works.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles around these dynamic areas of the face so that they don’t crease as easily and therefore don’t create wrinkles. You can use BOTOX® anywhere on the face, but the most common places for it to be used are:
- The forehead
- Frown lines between brows
- The top of the nose (bunny lines)
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
The dynamic wrinkles that occur in these areas as made worse with age because our body loses the collagen and the hyaluronic acid that gives our skin its bounce.
Once treatment has begun, you’ll notice that you still look the same, but you look more relaxed. BOTOX® doesn’t replace or supplement the lost facial cells like some dermal implants, but rather relaxes the muscles themselves in order to bring out a more youthful you.
What is the Procedure Like?
Because BOTOX® is medication, it’s injected directly into the face through a tiny needle, but because the needle is so thin, there isn’t a need for any anesthetic. Each treatment takes only about 15 minutes per injection, so it’s very common to have treatments done in between work and home, or while you’re already out.
Results are generally seen in a few days but aren’t fully realized until about two weeks after treatment. It’s advised to not touch or manipulate the injection area in the immediate days following the procedure. For maximum results, you should continue to receive regular injections every three to four months.
