When you get older, you produce less collagen, and your skin isn't as elastic as it once was. If you've noticed wrinkles and lines forming around your face, you can get Botox® injections to look youthful once again. This popular cosmetic treatment is a safe and natural way to take some years off your face, and you'll see results after a very short time.
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a toxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, which we purify and inject into your face to fix cosmetic issues. This natural substance sends signals to your brain and tells your facial muscles to stop contracting. By blocking muscle contractions, Botox® smooths out wrinkles in your forehead, lips, mouth, and neck.
Once we check your skin and ensure you're fit for the procedure, we inject a small but effective dose of Botox® into the affected areas of your face. You'll be free to go in a few minutes and notice your face is less wrinkled around 7 to 10 days after the appointment.
What Issues Can Botox® Fix?
Botox® helps treat a variety of cosmetic issues, including:
- Wrinkles around your mouth
- Vertical lines between your eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow's feet
How Long Does Botox® Last?
You can expect your skin to remain smoother for approximately three to six months after you receive Botox® treatment. If you don't continue to receive injections, the effect of the toxin will wear off, and your wrinkles will reappear. Scheduling regular appointments will let you enjoy the full benefits of this innovative cosmetic treatment.
