Wrinkles are just one of the many problems that comes with living. Fine lines, creases and even “loose” skin can develop as the simple result of flexing the muscles in your face repeatedly. The problem is that treating these issues is anything but straightforward. Dermal fillers do little more than temporarily mask the problem, as they quickly become absorbed by the body as the muscles continue to flex. Even facelifts have limited results, especially when you consider the healing they require.
BOTOX® represents one of the most effective treatments for muscle-related wrinkles and imperfections in the face. This treatment aims to quickly and effectively solve the cause of these deformations while persisting for six months to two years.
What is BOTOX®?
This injectable affects the neural impulses in the face, which in turn effectively relaxes any muscles near the site where it is injected. This treats wrinkles by limiting how much the muscles lying under the skin can contract. Even a small amount of this product is enough to diminish the muscle’s strength, which in turn can limit how visible wrinkles and other deformations are.
Given the nature of BOTOX®’s active ingredient, this allows it to persist for a lengthy time. The body tends to have trouble removing these particles. This results in a long-lasting treatment that is quick, simple and incredibly effective.
Does BOTOX® Treat Wrinkles?
This injectable is designed to treat the source of wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. This allows it to safely eliminate the wrinkles around the eyes, the lips, the nose and other sensitive areas of the face.
Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX® does not treat the deformation that these contractions have caused. The underlying collagen layer will still have displaced collagen, which in turn means that some wrinkles will persist in a limited form.
The good news about this is that BOTOX® is compatible with other injectable treatments, like dermal fillers. By treating the cause of these wrinkles, this allows other treatments to work without fear of being prematurely absorbed by the body.
Is it Safe to Use?
When administered by our experienced and skilled treatment provider, BOTOX® is incredibly safe to use. The effects will eventually wear off, which means that this treatment is long-lasting, but not permanent. Any problems can be fixed, which stands in stark contrast to other more involved treatments that can go wrong, like facelifts.
