How Can Botox Get Rid of My Wrinkles?

While aesthetic issues like fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, they are not something you look forward to seeing. Issues like crow’s feet and frown lines can have you staring into the mirror wondering what you can do to reduce their appearance. One of the best options for treating lines and wrinkles on the face is Botox.

What Is Botox?

Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical treatment options for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that form all around the face. One of the reasons Botox is so effective at treating wrinkles is because it targets the facial muscles that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles.

When your facial muscles contract, the skin above them can wrinkle and form lines. Think about when you squint or smile and how certain wrinkles form as a result of it. Over time as the muscles become stiff and the skin loses its strength and elasticity, these wrinkles become much more prominent. Over the years, these wrinkles may even be visible when you are not engaging your facial muscles.

Botox comes in the form of an injectable drug that contains a purified form of a substance known as botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin type A is able to block the nerves from sending signals to the muscles. This temporarily paralyzes these muscles and prevents them from being able to contract.

When Botox is injected into the facial muscles, these stiff muscles are allowed to relax which visibly softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the treated areas. The injection process only takes around 30 minutes to complete and there is no downtime required after the treatment. You can leave after your Botox injections and resume your normal daily activities.

Botox Results

Botox can be safely used to treat a lot of common aesthetic concerns and visible signs of facial aging. Some of the most common treatment areas include crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and neck bands. Multiple areas of the face can also be treated during one session. Botox injections can also be performed in combination with dermal filler injections for patients interested in more substantial facial rejuvenation.

It will take around 10 or 14 days before you begin to see the results of your Botox treatment. The results provided by Botox are not permanent. On average, Botox provides results that last for around three months or so. The good news is that once your results begin to fade, additional treatments can easily be performed.
