You’ve probably heard of BOTOX® since it’s been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for years. However, you still may have questions about this wrinkle reduction procedure. Read on to learn more about this popular treatment in West Palm Beach, how it works and what you can expect from this trusted anti-aging option.
BOTOX® works by blocking signals from nerves to muscles when injected into a muscle, rendering it unable to contract. The result is that wrinkles are released, giving a softened appearance to the targeted area. Lines and furrows such as the ones formed by smiling and other facial expressions, known as dynamic wrinkles, usually respond best to BOTOX®. Laugh lines around the mouth, crow’s feet surrounding the eyes and deep forehead creases can be significantly lessened through treatment with BOTOX®. Smoker’s lines, those tiny wrinkles that form around the mouth, are also treated frequently through this method.
How It Works
BOTOX® is a convenient procedure, as it only takes minutes to complete and can be done in the comfort of our office in the West Palm Beach area. In addition, there’s no need for anesthesia. The solution is simply injected into target muscles in order to relax the muscle and release the wrinkles above it. Full effects take days to appear, but results should last for multiple months. Follow-up maintenance sessions will be required, but it is common for wrinkles to become less resistant over time as they begin to respond to the BOTOX® solution.
