Botulinum toxin, more commonly known as Botos, is an injection that you can use to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. Xeomin and Dysport are two other brands of botulinum injections that you may come across.
WHAT ISSUES CAN BOTOX TREATMENT HELP WITH?
While you may have heard or seen on TV people getting botox injections to help with wrinkles, there are more reasons to get the treatment. Below is a list of a few issues that this FDA approved anti aging treatment can help you with:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines on the forehead
- Furrow lines between the brows
- Platysmal bands on the neck
BOTOX, HOW DOES IT WORK?
With over forty muscles in our face that we use regularly for smiling, laughing, and even chewing our food, it’s no wonder that over time these muscles become toned. Once they have become toned, over time these muscles will leave wrinkles that may leave you looking tired. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to twelve months, depending on what you are treating.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF BOTOX® INJECTIONS?
The effects of Botox®, and similar products can last for up to eight full months and they can also be repeated as needed. The results are smoother wrinkle free skin. There has also been research that shows that these products can be used for other purposes such as treatment of excessive sweating, prevention of migraines, relaxation of twitching eyes, and in patients with spastic muscles.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY TIME?
The treatment itself only takes about twenty minutes typically. After the treatment is finished, the patient may experience a bit of redness around the treated area. It generally takes about fourteen days before the injection is fully active.
