In recent years, the demand for Botox has skyrocketed. More and more people are getting Botox injections to get rid of wrinkles and achieve a flawless, youthful complexion. According to plasticsurgery.org, Botox is one of the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States, with over four million people receiving the treatment.
Did you know that you need regular Botox injections to maintain your wrinkle-free appearance for a long time? But what is Botox, and how do regular Botox injections tackle the signs of aging.
Botox is an injectable neuromodulator that works to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles underneath. Botox uses a pure form of botulinum toxin derived from bacteria. Botox injections have a plethora of benefits and can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the following areas:
Botox injections can also treat chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). It is also an effective treatment for lazy eye, cervical dystonia, bladder dysfunction and eye twitching.
Your face muscles contract multiple times a day, eventually etching lines in the skin and causing wrinkles. When Botox is injected into your face, it interferes with the nerve stimulation of the muscles, thus paralyzing them underneath your skin. Since they stop contracting, the wrinkles stop forming. As a result, it can temporarily erase your wrinkles and fine lines. But Botox doesn’t just treat your wrinkles; it also prevents them. This is why starting Botox injections from an earlier age and getting them regularly is an excellent preventative measure.
The results of Botox injections lasts for about three to four months. The muscles gain back full movement once the effect wears off. If you are looking for long-lasting results, we strongly recommend you get regular Botox injections. Sporadic injections can reduce the efficacy of the treatment, thus reducing your chances of a wrinkle-free complexion. For best results, we recommend getting the Botox injections every six to nine months, based on your skin goals.
It is a common misconception that regular usage of Botox injections can cause serious side effects. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox is a safe procedure. However, like all cosmetic procedures, there are a few risks associated with Botox injections, including:
While pain, swelling, headache and nausea are fairly common side effects of Botox injections, patients rarely experience serious side effects like vision problems and loss of bladder control.
