aving an appearance you can be proud of through all the stages of your life is a priority for many people. The volume of creams, lotions, cosmetics, and other beauty enhancements sold every year is proof of just how much we are willing to invest in preserving our youthfulness and beauty.
While a good skincare regimen can keep the face clean and moisturized, truly noticeable results require something a little extra. Botox can deliver that extra boost that enhances your confidence and keeps you looking young and healthy.
The Basics of Botox
Botox is an injectable treatment that uses a toxin to paralyze the muscles in the face. This helps reduce and smooth out what are known as “dynamic wrinkles,” which are formed by the movement in your facial muscles. The horizontal lines that run across your forehead and the “elevens” that form in between your eyebrows are examples of dynamic wrinkles.
Getting Botox injections is a simple procedure that is performed in your doctor’s office and doesn’t require any recovery time. Bruising and redness sometimes occur, but they usually resolve on their own quickly. You can help prevent these minor side effects by avoiding anti-inflammatory drugs or any other blood-thinning medications after your Botox treatment as they tend to make bruising more prominent.
Botox is considered a safe and effective treatment and is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic enhancement in the US.
What to Expect from Botox Treatments
After getting Botox, you can expect an immediate improvement in your appearance that lasts up to six months. This time can vary depending on how quickly your body breaks down the injected material.
In general, you can expect the following results from your Botox treatment:
- Skin that looks smoother and brighter
- A reduction in visible fine lines and wrinkles
- A more refreshed and “awake” appearance
