What is Botox?
Botox is a treatment that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox is a purified form of onabotulinumtoxinA, also known as botulinum toxin type A. Botox temporarily reduces the muscle activity site, relaxing the muscles which prevent the formation of lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neuromodulator that prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles around the injection site. This causes the area to relax, preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles. In contrast, dermal fillers reduce the look of wrinkles and lines by injecting something into the skin to make it look fuller.
Botox has a long history of success. Its application and use have gotten better with practice and use. The doctor at Sirene MedSpa and Wellness knows precisely what you need to gain the appearance you are looking for.
What Areas Can Botox Treat?
Botox is FDA approved for the purpose of cosmetic injections. It can be injected into areas of the face to reduce smile lines, wrinkles around the eyes, and glabellar lines. Because of the delicate nature of the injection sites in which Botox is injected, it should be done by properly trained staff.
Crow’s Feet form when people squint, smile, and laugh. The muscles around the eyes contract which causes the skin to fold or furrow. Because the skin is thin in this area of the face, lines form more easily. Botox helps to preserve a smooth appearance around the eye without impacting your facial expressions.
Frown Lines form between your eyebrows when the muscles contract when you frown. The repetition of this creates the lines that remain between the eyebrows. Injecting Botox between the eyebrows makes the lines look softer and helps prevent the deepening of existing lines and the formation of new ones.
Forehead Lines are sometimes called glabellar lines. The lines on the forehead contribute greatly to your appearance and can make you appear older. Botox can help people look much younger.
Most people begin to see results from Botox injections in two to five days. The results from the injections will usually about three to four months. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced without invasive surgeries and without downtime to heal.
