A 3 to 4 Month Botox Treatment to Get Your New Year Started Beautifully


Are you curious about Botox? It’s helpful to ‘brush up’ on the science and the benefits behind this amazing wrinkle reducer. Botox is a safe and common method used for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox is actually a purified form of botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as a neurotoxin. When a small amount of Botox is injected into a muscle it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. It is currently FDA approved to treat vertical lines and wrinkles that have formed between the eyebrows. Botox can also be used in other areas such as the upper forehead, the crow’s feet, and other wrinkles on the face and neck.

When BOTOX is injected into the muscle it temporarily causes that muscle to relax. When the muscle is relaxed the skin is able to lay smooth and flat. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced in appearance for a period of time, giving you a more youthful and relaxed face. Botox can be used to provide a subtle brow lift. Brows are lifted by temporarily weakening the muscles that tend to pull the brows down.

A major benefit of Botox is amazing results with virtually no downtime. Minimal bruising or discomfort may occur simply due to the very fine needle entering the soft tissue. Getting a BOTOX injection takes just a few minutes. You are able to resume normal activities following treatment. Results are seen in 2 to 14 days post treatment and you can expect your results to last anywhere from three to four months.
