BOTOX is an extremely effective, non-invasive, dermal filler used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is made up of the Botulinum toxin, which acts as a temporary nerve blocker, relaxing and weakening contracted muscles, to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
What are wrinkles?
It all starts with a nerve telling a muscle to contract. This causes the overlying skin to scrunch up. With time and repeated contractions, the skin begins to thin at certain points and a wrinkle appears.
Wrinkles are the lines and creases that form in your skin. Some wrinkles can become deep crevices or furrows and may be especially noticeable. They tend to become prominent in areas of the face that show expression; i.e. the mouth, the nose, the eyes, and the forehead.
With age, after years and years of such expression the skin will begin to keep those creases and lines. Also, as we age the face tends to lose fat, that gives our face its necessary volume and fills the creases. Facial volume loss can be corrected through the use of dermal fillers.
How does it work?
Botox is a dermal filler injected into the skin to fill the spaces created by wrinkles and facial volume loss. Think of the skin as a piece of paper. By folding the paper along the same crease over and over, you are deepening/reinforcing that fold and weakening the paper.
Now imagine if all of a sudden you cannot fold the piece of paper. Instead, you flatten it out and place it between two large books. With time, the fold fades. That is the same mechanism by which BOTOX® is able to prevent/decrease the wrinkles of the face. The big distinction in the analogy, however, is that skin is a living organ that is able to regenerate. So, with time and good skin care, wrinkles will virtually disappear.
What does Botox improve?
Lines between and around the eyes
Lines on the forehead
Crows feet and under-eye depressions
Lines along the neck
Smile marks, around the outside of the mouth
Wrinkles and lines around the nose
Is Botox painful?
Botox is non-invasive and is simply administered in a small shot. The discomfort is minimal and fairly brief. If you’d like we can numb the area with a small amount of anesthetic, but that’s generally unnecessary.
Results can be seen almost instantly, and can be expected to reach their peak after about 24 hours. Typically, dermal fillers must be repeated every year or so to keep the desired results. Yet they are still the best way to relieve wrinkles and fine lines.
