Botox® for Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Botox® is FDA approved for treating fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements such as frowning, squinting, and laughing. This includes crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
How Does Botox® Work and When Will I See Results?
Botox® is a neurotoxin, which means it reduces wrinkles by blocking the chemical signals sent from the nerves to the muscles. Consequently, when Botox® is injected into the facial muscle it stops contracting. As the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin smooths out and the wrinkles soften over time, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The results of Botox® can be seen about 24-48 hours after treatment, but it can take up to 10 days to see maximum results.
Is There Any Downtime with Botox®?
After Botox® treatment, there may be some swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection site, but these symptoms should resolve within a few days. If you want to get great natural-looking results with Botox®, the treatment should be done by a medical professional with the necessary experience and knowledge of the facial anatomy.
