Injectables: Botox & Lip Fillers
If you are suffering from facial wrinkles, then you know they can be a pain to deal with. Facial wrinkles are the result of many different factors. Those factors include aging of the skin, sun damage, frowning, concentrating, and squinting. Frowning and concentrating cause wrinkles in between the eyebrows while squinting causes wrinkles around the eyes called crow’s feet.
What is Botox?
Botox is a muscle relaxer that is used to help diminish the wrinkles in the face. It does this by temporarily stopping the muscles in the face from contracting and forming wrinkles. Over time, your face will begin to soften and smooth. Botox can improve wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, chin, neck, and mouth. It helps to create a more youthful and vibrant look. Botox is also used to treat intense migraines, painful TMJ, and embarrassing sweating.
The outcomes of using Botox are not obvious right away. The effects of Botox will begin around 2 or 3 days after the first injection and should reach its peak effect about 14 days after the injection. The results and duration of Botox are different for everyone, but most people see effects last for at least 3 months.
Generally, Botox injections are easily tolerable. Many patients report a faint pinch while some don’t feel any pain at all.
