Fine lines and wrinkles got you down? It is possible that BOTOX injections here in Scottsdale are the answer. This amazing treatment has helped people all over the world rejuvenate their look and boost their self-esteem. Below more information about how the treatment works and whether or not it might be the right option for you.
How Do BOTOX Injections Work?
BOTOX® is designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. What is a dynamic wrinkle? These are the lines that show up on your face when you make different expressions. Crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines are all good examples. In our youth, these lines fade when we stop making the expression. Over time, we produce less collagen, and the lines tend to stick around a bit longer.
In order to allow your skin to relax and smooth out, BOTOX injections temporarily relax specific facial muscles. Don’t worry, you are still able to make a full range of expressions and do not look “frozen.” Approximately 24-72 hours after your injections, the targeted muscles will stop movement. It takes roughly one week for the wrinkles to smooth out. These results will last for around 4 months.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?
If you are wondering if you should seek out BOTOX injections in Scottsdale, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are the wrinkles you want treated caused by repetitive facial movements?
- Do you want a non-surgical treatment option that results in no downtime?
- Are you okay with having treatments done a few times a year to keep up your results?
- Are you not currently pregnant or breastfeeding?
- Are you at least 18 years old?
- Are you in good general health?
- Do you have a positive outlook and realistic expectations?
Both men and women who answered yes to all of those questions should consider themselves good candidates! At your consultation, we will discuss your medical history to ensure there are no issues that could lead to complications.
Although people used to associate BOTOX injections with people of a certain age, people are now turning to it when they are much younger. People in their 40s and even 30s are taking advantage of all that this treatment has to offer. Multiple factors go into when dynamic wrinkles develop. Do not put off treatment if you are bothered by them!
