Why Botox® Is Our Favorite Tweak Of The Month!

Worried about the lines and wrinkles appearing on your face every time you smile, laugh or frown? Botox® – an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer – might be just the right treatment for you. Botox® acts as a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes the underlying facial muscles to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, including:
  • Crow’s feet – Lines that appear on the outer corners of your eyes
  • Frown lines – Vertical lines between the eyebrows aka glabellar lines
  • Forehead lines – Horizontal lines that run along your forehead

1. Gold Standard For Treating Already Formed Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Botox® is one of the first-ever FDA-approved wrinkle relaxers and is considered to be the gold standard for treating existing fine lines and wrinkles.

It targets the root cause behind the dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the movements of the underlying muscles, by blocking the nerve signals to these muscles. In short, Botox® injections temporarily relax the facial muscles, smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles.

Moreover, getting Botox® regularly every 3-4 months can also help train the muscles to contract less and further reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Getting Botox® In Your 20s Can Prevent Or Delay The Formation Of New Wrinkles

Ever heard of the saying “Prevention is better than cure?” Getting Preventative Botox® treatments or Botox® injections in relatively minute dosages can prevent or delay the formation of new wrinkles, thus keeping your skin smoother and younger-looking for a longer period of time.

3. Relatively Quick Results

Unlike topical skincare products or other aesthetic treatments that can take weeks or months to produce results, the initial results of Botox® injections can be seen within 2 to 3 days. However, full results can be seen within a week or two.

4. Results Are Not Permanent

However if you’re unhappy with your results, rest assured that they’re not permanent and will wear off within 3 to 4 months.

5. Subtle And Natural-Looking Results

When performed by an expert injector, Botox® injections can produce remarkable results that do not appear overdone.

Ideally, a Botox® treatment can give you wrinkle-free and smoother-looking skin while preserving a full range of facial expressions.

6. Little To No Downtime

Since the treatment is minimally invasive, it doesn’t require any extensive preparation or downtime. You can go back to your daily routine as soon as you leave the office.

7. Virtually No Side Effects

Botox® is considered a safe and effective treatment option to soften the look of dynamic lines and wrinkles on your face. Unlike other treatments, it is safe for all skin types and skin tones and doesn’t involve the risk of hyperpigmentation, redness, or bruising.

However, it’s important to get a Botox® treatment only from a certified and expert injector if you want to achieve natural-looking results safely.
