When it comes to wrinkle reduction, cosmetic injections like Botox® and other fillers are the most popular choices in the United States. Why? Because they’re quick, require little to no downtime, and give you consistent results.
Though Botox and fillers are considered temporary treatments, regular Botox injections may provide long-term results.
At Celebrity Medi Spa in Allen, Texas, we’re all about helping you look and feel younger. We offer many anti-aging treatments, including Botox injections.
Here, we want to share with you why Botox is the best cosmetic tool for long-term wrinkle reduction.
How Botox works
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. Though your genetics determine the structure of your skin, there are many outside factors that contribute to the development of lines and wrinkles, like your facial expressions.
Every time you smile or squint, your facial muscles create grooves that cause your skin to fold, creating temporary lines. As you get older and your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity, these lines may become more permanent.
Botox works by addressing your facial muscles — the underlying cause of your expression lines. The injection temporarily blocks the nerve signal that causes the facial muscle movement. Without the repeated folding from the facial muscles, your skin has time to relax and smooth itself out naturally.
It may take up to three days until you see improvements in your lines and wrinkles, but the effects last up to four months.
What Botox treats
We use Botox injections to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines and creases caused by your facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles include:
- Crow’s feet at the corner of your eyes
- Frown lines between your eyebrows
- Forehead wrinkles
You may be wondering about the crease that runs from the bottom of your nose to the corner of your mouth — also known as the nasolabial fold. This is called a wrinkle fold. These types of wrinkles develop because of volume loss, causing your skin to sag and fold.
Botox isn’t the right treatment for these types of wrinkles. For wrinkle folds, we use fillers to restore volume, smoothing out the lines and creases.
Regular injections for long-term results
You can repeat your Botox injections every three to four months, or as soon as you notice your lines and wrinkles return. With regular Botox injections, you may notice that your results last longer.
Health professionals have been using Botox to treat wrinkles for more than 20 years. It’s considered a safe and effective cosmetic treatment and one of the best cosmetic tools for long-term wrinkle reduction.
