Tired of unsightly wrinkles, yet hate the thought of cosmetic surgery? Then try botulinum toxin. Sounds scary, but it’s the scientific name for Botox, a revolutionary prescription medication that improves moderate to severe frown lines, forehead furrows, smoker’s lines and crow’s feet. Botox is a great alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. It’s quick, painless, and seldom causes side effects.
Considering Botox? The benefits are many, including:
- Botox is non-invasive and non-surgical.
- Botox instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Botox requires no recovery time.
- Botox not only treats existing wrinkles, but also prevents new ones from forming.
- Botox effectively and safely treats a wide range of dynamic wrinkles.
- Botox is convenient.
- Botox is temporary.
- Botox is FDA-approved, safe, effective and proven to work.
Botox Turns Back the Clock
Over 11 million Americans have experienced the magic of Botox. Botox’s results are so impressive that nearly all patients report they feel highly satisfied with their Botox cosmetic experience. Pretty amazing, right? Botox clearly has an edge over other wrinkle treatments, such as dermabrasion or chemical peels.
Part of Botox’s amazing ability to turn back the clock is due to the fact that it effectively and instantly treats dynamic wrinkles. What are dynamic wrinkles? They’re wrinkles that appear when you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. Dermabrasion and chemical peels can’t treat dynamic wrinkles because they’re unable to relax the muscles that cause those wrinkles to appear. And Botox has an added advantage: Compared to dermabrasion and chemical peels, there’s no downtime associated with Botox. Both dermabrasion and chemical peels require up to ten days of recovery time. Botox fits your active lifestyle, offering true cosmetic convenience!
If you thought that was great news, get this: Botox works fast. It generally only takes a few days to work as it begins to settle into the injection site, and its effects typically last four to six months. Lines and wrinkles will eventually begin to reappear and will need to be treated again, as muscle contractions return. But over time, those lines and wrinkles will appear less severe as Botox trains muscles to relax.
Are You Right for Botox?
Botox has been proven safe for most people, especially those who wish to eliminate dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by the contraction of underlying muscles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox works best on younger patients, and is recommended for people between the ages of 18 and 70. Older folks should consult with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to ensure that their skin tone is elastic enough to respond to treatment.
Of course, Botox can’t work wonders on everyone. People who might not benefit from Botox treatments include those with weakened facial muscles, allergies to bovine products, and who are taking antibiotics or blood thinners. Botox also might not be as effective on people with non-dynamic wrinkles, such as those wrinkles caused by gravity, skin infections or sun damage.
Side effects from Botox are relatively rare, but as with any cosmetic procedure, they can still happen. The most common side effect of Botox injections is temporary bruising, followed by headaches lasting up to 48 hours. Eyelid drooping can also occur, and usually subsides within three weeks. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding or who suffer from neurological disorders can’t undergo Botox injections.
The Science Behind Botox
Botox is a neurotoxin and works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once this happens, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions, called acetylcholine, can’t be released. To put it more simply, Botox injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. This is also why wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity don’t respond to Botox treatments.
You’ll have to take certain precautions before undergoing a Botox treatment. Ten days before receiving Botox injections, you’ll be asked to refrain from taking products that contain aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E – doing so will significantly reduce the chance of bruising following treatment.
But don’t let these precautions scare you. The best part about undergoing Botox is that it’s quick and painless. You’ll generally receive a consultation beforehand to determine the best treatment for your needs. And when you do undergo a treatment, a topical numbing gel will be applied fifteen minutes prior. Six to eight injections will be administered into the underlying muscles. Most people say that the injections feel similar to getting vaccinated – that is, they feel only a few seconds of mild discomfort as the Botox enters the injection site. A few hours afterwards, the injection site may look red and feel irritated.
Immediately following the injections, you’ll be required to contract the treated muscles. Your physician will ask you to frown, raise your eyebrows and smile and pucker your lips. It sounds silly, but this helps to evenly distribute the Botox throughout the injection site. Your physician will also tell you to refrain from exercising, bending over, lying down or rubbing the area for the first 24-48 hours after treatment. This ensures that the Botox settles in the right place and doesn’t migrate elsewhere. Failure to do so can potentially result in facial paralysis and eyelid drooping.
Experience the Magic of Botox
There’s a reason why millions of men and women choose Botox – there’s no surgery or recovery time involved. What’s more, Botox offers real, noticeable results. Since Botox works by weakening facial muscles, full results are generally seen within five to seven days. You’ll see deep dynamic wrinkles gradually improve over time, in addition to the early effects seen shortly after treatment. Your results will continue to improve, until about two weeks after the procedure. At that time, you’ll be looking your best. The effects of Botox will gradually wear off over the next four to six months, and the wrinkles will need to be retreated.
When used early on in the aging process, Botox not only treats wrinkles, but also prevents new wrinkles from forming. Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set in, and reduces the onset of wrinkles before they become moderate or severe. By combining a Botox regimen with good skin care, sunscreen, and a healthy lifestyle, you can prevent most wrinkles from getting worse and prevent new ones from forming.
