Botox® continues to be one of the most popular injectables in the world, and this facial rejuvenation product is used to treat a wide variety of blemishes. If you are tired of masking your fine lines and wrinkles with costly beauty products, then you might be the perfect candidate for Botox®. This injectable is going to improve your appearance within days, and many patients experience results up to four months. When it comes to facial rejuvenation treatments, very few options are as safe or effective as Botox®.

The Science Behind Botox®

This product was first approved by the FDA in 1989, and it is made from a unique purified protein solution. Many decades ago, doctors discovered that they could minimize the appearance of wrinkles by blocking certain nerve impulses. Some wrinkles form when nearby muscles become permanently contracted, and one of the best ways to relax those muscles is to disrupt the nerve signals. After Botox® is injected into the muscle, the soft tissue automatically unclenches. As a result, the skin will shift back to its natural position, and that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

An Ideal Candidate

Many patients are surprised to hear that there are actually different types of wrinkles, and Botox® only works on some of those imperfections. This injectable isn’t going erase any wrinkles that have been caused by sagging or loose skin. That being said, it is an excellent option for dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. It can also be used to treat deeper folds along the outside of the mouth. Before you have this treatment carried out, our team will need to take a look at your medical history and carefully inspect your face.

Administering this facial rejuvenation product is extremely easy, and the entire treatment usually only takes five or 10 minutes. Botox® is administered with a very fine needle, but we want to be absolutely sure that our patients remain as comfortable as possible. Following your injections, we suggest that you stay out of direct sunlight and avoid strenuous activities for at least an hour. Most of our patients claim that the side effects are very mild, and you won’t have to follow any complicated aftercare instructions.
