All you need to know about Botox injection and how it is used to prevent wrinkles

Wrinkles and drooping lids are not something that one would be proud of because they are a reminder that you are getting old. It can also be frustrating to manage because they cannot be changed for good without involving surgery. However, Botox makes it possible to minimize these features for months. At Wrinkle Fairy, Leslie Forrester APRN and a team of specialists are experienced and qualified in planning and placing Botox injections to help minimize wrinkles, reduce excessive sweating, and also lift your brows.

What is Botox?

Botox is one of the most popular and well-known cosmetic injectables that is currently used. It consists of a neurotoxin that alters the communication between your motor nerves and muscles. It aims at temporarily stopping targeted muscles from receiving this communication and thus stops them from flexing irrespective of you trying to flex them or not. Other injectables like Dysport that share the same ingredient with Botox are available at the facility and are used as part of the comprehensive treatment plan. The facility specialists ensure great results are achieved and are also experienced in using Botox to target specific areas of your face.

You must first have topical anesthesia before receiving your Botox injection, thus making the injection less painful. After injections are complete, the care provider gives you some instructions on how to control any redness that may be seen. You can also resume your daily chores after the treatment because they do not require any downtime.

What can Botox do?

Botox injections’ function is to fulfill different purposes and boost your confidence by taking care of your insecurities. Some common fine lines like frown lines and crow’s feet result from repeated expressions and movements. They are always visible even when you are not consciously flexing any muscle of the face. The role of Botox is to stop these muscles from flexing even if you are not trying to flex them, therefore, smoothing unconcealable wrinkles for some months.

As one is aging, they usually develop droopy eyes that make one look very tired or sad, even when they are not feeling that way. A Botox brow lift is used to elevate the eyebrows’ outer or inner sides, thus pulling your brows downwards.

Another term that is used to refer to excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis. Therefore, if your shirt usually gets damp under your armpits, a few Botox injections can be given to disable the sweat glands in the area for a while.

How can you get Botox injections?

It usually takes approximately four to six months before the effects of Botox injection wear off. Around this time, you may notice that your wrinkles are reappearing or the sweat gland has started functioning once more. Therefore, you are encouraged to come back to the facility regularly to refresh your look after the effects of the injection start wearing off.  However, most specialists, including Leslie, do not recommend you to have Botox treatment on the same area more than four times in the same year.
