Dealing with fine lines and wrinkles are a thing of the past. Now there are a variety of aesthetic treatments that have become household names in anti-aging. The most popular anti-aging treatment that pioneered the rest, Botox, is being offered at our med spa near Miami. Botox was introduced to the aesthetics industry by Allergan Inc. in 2002 and has remained the most in-demand treatment since.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is primarily composed of botulinum toxin type A; hence its name. This toxin is a neuromodulator that stiffens, or relaxes the muscles that form wrinkles. Wrinkles and fine lines are often due to years of expression. Once Botox is administered to these particular muscles, you can be expressive without the wrinkles. This treatment is an injection, so you don’t have to worry about incisions or downtime. Botox should be administered by a licensed medical professional. It can also be used as a wrinkle preventative while also reducing the appearance of current wrinkles.
Generally, you can enjoy the results of your Botox treatment for about four months before considering touch-ups.
Results with Botox
Following your initial treatment, it may take a couple of days for your face to settle into the new look. Botox generally provides smoother looking skin with noticeable wrinkle reduction. Botox is commonly used to treat crow’s fee, frown lines, even marionette lines.
