Everyone dreads the idea of getting older. However, there are solutions available to patients when it comes to the fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging. At Park Meadows Aesthetics, patients can ask about noninvasive ways to fight the signs of aging on the face, including cosmetic injectables such as Botox.
How Botox works
Most patients who visit our practice have heard of Botox, but may not be aware of how it actually works in combating fine lines, wrinkles, and folds of the face. Botox is a medication that is created using botulinum toxin type A. When this medication is injected into the muscles of the face, it can reduce the muscle’s ability to contract. If the muscles of the face are injected with Botox, the reduce contraction which in turn smooths the skin and reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds.
What areas can Botox be used?
In aesthetics, Botox can be used on the face around the eyes and forehead for the treatment of folds and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (such as crow’s feet). These are the most effective areas that can be treated, though some professionals use Botox off label for other areas of the face.
How long does Botox last?
The active ingredient of Botox can smooth lines for up to six months. In most situations, our team will encourage patients to book reinjection appointments four to six months after they begin to maintain the results. While the process of aging cannot be stopped, Botox injections assists in slowing the process on the facial area and delaying the need for many patients to undergo plastic surgery procedures to address wrinkles and folds.
