Botox only works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. These are known as dynamic wrinkles, and are often called "expression lines." Most people find that the muscle-relaxing effect of Botox lasts for 3 to 4 months.
Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They're also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines
Mechanism of Action
Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime. Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore reduce it’s ability to contract, and form unsightly wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) is one of the most well-known methods for warding off wrinkles and other signs of aging. It's a prescription medication that's injected into the muscles of the face. Botox works by stopping the muscle that it's injected into from contracting, so it appears relaxed and smooth.
Botox is also used to eradicate the horizontal lines of the forehead. The injection must be placed in the middle portion of the forehead; otherwise, drooping of the brow will occur. Creative Botoxing can elevate eyebrows, evening out asymmetry. The crow's-feet area, to the side of the eye, is also commonly treated.
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein when dosage, frequency of treatment & variety of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to ensure you receive the results you are looking for is to only receive injections from a highly experienced provider, such as the medical and nursing professionals at Ideal Image.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours with the maximum effect visible at 30 days. Results may vary.
For most of our guests, the effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Many factors can influence how long the effects last. As the product wears off, muscle action returns gradually, & the previously treated lines & wrinkles may begin to reappear, and need to be treated again. With repeated treatment, the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe than before, as the muscles are being trained to relax. Some of these factors that may shorten or lengthen the effects include:
- Your age
- The condition of your skin and level of sun damage
- Your facial structure and expressions
- Your diet
- Past experience with Botox of other wrinkle relaxers
While most people aged 18 to 65 are excellent candidates for Botox an wrinkle relaxers, you should not use Botox if you meet any of the following:
Are pregnant or brestfeeding
Have a skin infection or other condition in the area to be treated
Are allergic to any ingredients in Botox, Dysport, or any other botulinum toxin brand
Have had a facial surgery
Have difficulty swallowing
Have weakness in your forehead muscles
Botox contains purified bacteria that freeze muscles. In doing so, Botox can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. This thinning is common in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
People should be aware of the costs and risks of treatments and have realistic expectations of what they can do.
