BOTOX® injections are simple and have been found to be effective for a reduction in horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles. It involves a safe injection to temporarily relax muscles involved in contractions that produce certain types of wrinkles.
The product itself consists of a liquid that is injected into the face for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles. It has been successfully used to treat millions of patients both cosmetically and medically for over 20 years.
The BOTOX® Difference
Some patients mistakenly believe that BOTOX® is the same thing as a facial filler. BOTOX® actually works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles causing dynamic wrinkles, while fillers use various substances in gel form that are injected to enhance facial volume and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
What are the Benefits?
One key point about BOTOX® injections is that the product does not travel throughout the body after injection. It stays at the treatment site and will gradually wear off after multiple months. At this point, additional injections will be required to maintain your results.
Patients typically report that the effects of their BOTOX® injections last for months. Regular patients will often have injections multiple times annually to continue experiencing the benefits of the treatment.
Are BOTOX® Injections Safe for Everyone?
A large majority of people make good candidates for this treatment; however, it is not for everyone. The product is best for those with realistic outcome expectations. In addition, good candidates need to have the type of wrinkles that BOTOX® was designed to treat. They also must be in good overall health.
