As men and women get older, their faces will begin to show signs of aging. This begins with fine lines and eventually progresses to multiple deep wrinkles in various areas of the face. With Botox, residents of Frisco don’t have to let those wrinkles get deeper with time. They can actually turn the clock back with Botox treatments that relax the underlying muscles that can cause lines in the skin. For those who love the Frisco sun, sun damage can cause faster skin aging and lead to a greater need for injectables to smooth the skin. Contact our office today to learn more!
What Is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox is an injectable medication known by the full name botulinum toxin type A. This substance is a neuromodulator that will temporarily block the chemical activity of nerves within the muscles in the treatment area. It is most commonly used to smooth dynamic wrinkles, but can also be used for a number of medical conditions. It has been found to help some patients with migraines, overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and some muscle spasms.
Facial lines often start on the forehead, in the corners of the eyes, around the mouth and curving down from the side of the nose. All of those areas can be refreshed and smoothed with the proper application of injections of Botox. At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa, you can get all of these areas smoothed and refreshed for an overall younger-looking appearance.
The first step is to talk to the aesthetic professionals at Le Beau Visage Medical Spa to let them know about the areas you’re interested in treating. Then, we will discuss your medical history so that we can determine whether or not you are a candidate for this treatment. We will recommend an appropriate Botox treatment plan based on your needs and desired results. The number of injections you need will depend on the severity and placement of the lines and wrinkles. Each injection is directed with care directly into the muscle associated with the area affected by dynamic wrinkles and lines.
The effects of Botox on the muscles is a temporary one, so the treatment should be repeated in order to maintain your results. Results can last for up to three to six months after the initial treatment, and injection sessions must take place at least three months apart.
Botox is highly effective in treating small to moderate dynamic wrinkles and lines. It takes only a few minutes to receive the injections, and there is no downtime afterward. The effects of Botox are typically visible within about three days of your injection session.
