Botox is a highly sought-after med spa treatment and one that we perform frequently. It is a quick and effective way to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, frown lines, and furrows, resulting in a more youthful appearance while retaining natural facial movement.
The formation of facial lines can be attributed to several factors, such as collagen loss, exposure to the sun, and damage caused by free radicals. Repeated muscle contractions from common facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows, can also lead to the gradual formation of facial lines. However, Botox injections, when administered beneath the skin’s surface, effectively reduce underlying muscle movement and drastically minimize the formation of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
Botox injections are generally not painful, and patients may feel a slight pinch during the procedure. Visible smoothing of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines can be observed within 24 to 48 hours after treatment, with full results appearing in 15 to 30 days. The effects of Botox typically last between 3 and 4 months; however, it is important to note that a single treatment will not lead to permanent results. Periodic treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired level of wrinkle reduction, as discontinuing treatment may lead to the gradual return of moderate to severe wrinkles.
