If you are struggling with forehead wrinkles, brow lines (11 lines), or crow’s feet, you are not alone. These types of wrinkles in the upper face are some of the first to appear, and they may immediately give away your age. Botox is an effective treatment option to address these common signs of aging.
How Botox Works
While it might seem like a miracle treatment, Botox is a treatment based on solid medical science. It is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment designed to address wrinkles in the upper face. It is not a dermal filler. Rather, it works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to appear in certain parts of the face. Botox is injected into the facial muscles, helping to block nerve impulses and relax the muscles. Without contracting facial muscles, lines become less evident and are prevented from worsening.
Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002, and it has been used by millions of patients since. It is minimally invasive and highly effective for both men and women.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is treatment painful?
Treatment will involve a needle stick. However, topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin for patient comfort during the procedure. The needle used for the injection is also very fine. Therefore, patients can return immediately to their routines after treatment.
How long will the results last?
You’ll see the results of your treatment within just a few days. The results will continue to improve over the course of approximately 4 weeks and may remain for up to 6 months. You can see continued improvement of fine lines and wrinkles with additional injections. Not receiving a secondary treatment after 3-6 months will have no adverse effects. You will simply see wrinkles become more pronounced as they were before your initial treatment.
Is Botox right for me?
Although many patients are candidates for Botox injections, it is not for everyone. You must be a healthy adult between the ages of 18 and 65 to qualify for treatment. Botox works best along the brow, where the face is prone to indention and sagging. For more information whether it is right for you, schedule a consultation with us.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is a safe, effective treatment. However, it must be administered by an experienced, trained medical professional. At Vail Medical Center and Weightloss, all injectables are administered by our physician, Dr. Azam.
