For many of us, the visible signs of aging tend to sneak up over a long period of time. It makes sense that there would be an anti-aging treatment option that would gradually reduce certain signs of aging. BOTOX® is one of the best options when it comes to dramatically reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It accomplishes this in such a way, however, so that no one will be able to tell you’ve had work done.
BOTOX® is one of the many anti-aging treatments we offer here at RNA Medical Aesthetics. If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to contact us to schedule your consultation! Our team would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
The Gold Standard in Anti-Aging Treatments
BOTOX® has long been the most popular injectable when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The purified protein solution works to effectively relax certain muscles, which allows the wrinkles to fade. Using a special technique, the botulinum toxin is carefully injected so that your normal facial expressions are not affected. Only the muscles that are causing your wrinkles to form will be injected with the solution, which means you’ll still be able to smile, frown, and furrow your brows.
Where Can BOTOX® Treat?
Because BOTOX® is not a facial filler, it can only be injected into certain areas of the face. These areas include:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
The treatment itself is relatively quick, with the injections taking only 10-15 minutes to complete.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for this treatment include patients who have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the injections. We also recommend that you are in overall good health, and we will check to make sure you do not suffer from certain neurological conditions that might preclude you from receiving treatment.
BOTOX® is a great option for you if you are looking for an effective treatment, but don’t want to undergo surgery or experience much downtime. Other than slight bruising and swelling at the injection sites, it is unlikely that you will see any major adverse side effects.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Every patient is different, but BOTOX® is FDA-approved to last up to four months. After this time, your muscles will begin to contract again and your wrinkles will start to reappear. We can develop a customized treatment plan for you so you can stay on track with appointments and keep your face looking as youthful as possible.
