In a perfect world, we’d all have smooth, youthful skin, regardless of our age. Unfortunately, fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable and we all experience them at some point during the aging process. The good news is that there are ways to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore our youth. At Basis Aesthetic, we often recommend Botox to men and women who are looking for a way to look younger without surgery.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is made of a purified chemical known as botulinum toxin. It works by blocking your muscular signals and weakening your muscles so they won’t contract and cause unwanted wrinkles. This treatment is ideal for dynamic wrinkles that you get when you make facial expressions such as forehead lines, smile lines, and crow’s feet.
While Botox can leave you with a more youthful appearance, it’s important to understand that its results are not permanent. After three to six months, your face will return to normal and you can return to our office for additional injections.
Botox Consultations Available
While most patients do not need a topical anesthetic, it is an option for those who are worried about any pain or discomfort. Botox treatments are fairly quick and can typically be completed in 15 to 30 minutes.
Ideal Candidates for Botox
You may be a good candidate for Botox if you’d like to improve your facial wrinkles but are not interested in a surgical procedure. If you’re younger and would like to prevent lines from arising in the first place, you may want to undergo Botox treatments as well. By doing so, you can stop your facial muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles every time you smile, laugh, squint, or raise your eyebrows.
Botox is not a good option if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, living with a neuromuscular disease, or taking aminoglycoside medications. A consultation at our office can help you determine whether Botox makes sense.
