If you’re tired of being told that you look tired — or upset, worried, or angry — when you’re not, Botox® Cosmetic can help. As the go-to solution for long-lasting wrinkle reduction, Botox can take you from worn out and harried to youthful and self-assured in just one quick and easy visit.
Dr. Divina Averilla of Love Your Body Medical Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, explains how Botox can help you say goodbye to forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines so you can look as good as you feel.
When it comes to erasing fine lines, diminishing the appearance of deep wrinkles, and leaving your skin looking youthful and naturally fresh, nothing beats Botox. So how does it work?
Made from Clostridium botulinum, Botox is a natural and highly purified protein that effectively smooths out lines, wrinkles, and creases simply by disrupting the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to contract.
When injected at specific points in your facial anatomy, this therapeutic agent blocks the nerve signals that keep your underlying muscles in a perpetual state of contraction from years of smiling, squinting, frowning, and raising your eyebrows. As your facial muscles begin to relax, your overlying skin looks increasingly smoother and more youthful.
Botox can temporarily erase the deep vertical furrows between your brows and the horizontal frown lines that stretch across your forehead; it can also erase the laugh lines at the corners of your eyes that seem to multiply with each passing year.
Botox may have built its exceptional reputation on how beautifully and effectively it can turn back the hands of time, but you don’t need to have a lot of lines and wrinkles to make the most of the world’s foremost anti-aging remedy.
That’s because Botox isn’t just a facial rejuvenation treatment, it’s also a potent prejuvenation treatment, meaning it can help you prevent wrinkle formation in the first place.
In recent years, preventive Botox sessions have become increasingly popular among young adults, a growing number of whom keep regular Botox appointments as part of their personal skin maintenance routine and beauty regimen.
The only difference between using Botox to erase established wrinkles and using it to prevent wrinkle formation lies in the dosage: Adults with fewer lines and wrinkles need a smaller dose of Botox to keep their skin looking naturally fresh and smooth.
As the world’s leading aesthetic solution for temporary wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation, Botox was administered 7.4 million times in the United States in 2018 alone, making it the most in-demand, non-surgical cosmetic treatment by far.
But what makes Botox more sought after than other popular anti-aging treatments like dermal fillers and laser resurfacing? Simply put, Botox is as complete a package as you can get — on top of delivering beautifully consistent results, it’s considered safe, quick, and effortless.
The average Botox session takes just 10 minutes from start to finish, including three small injections to treat the wrinkles around each eye, five small injections across your forehead to treat your worry lines, and five small injections between and above your brows to treat your frown lines.
With ultrafine needles, a quick treatment process, and full FDA approval, Botox is painless, easy, and considered safe. It’s also long-lasting — you can expect to have smoother, younger-looking skin for up to six months, and a quick Botox boost is all it takes to maintain your results.
