Botox is an injectable neuromodulator. This means it works by changing the way your nerves and muscles communicate.
The aesthetic injectable is made from a botulinum toxin that blocks the signal from the injected nerve to the muscle it serves. When injected into your face, it can prevent the muscles from contracting as deeply as they normally do when you make certain facial expressions, like frowning, smiling, and squinting.
When you reach your late 20s, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear from decades of making these faces. This is because your skin loses elasticity and tone as you get older. But since you keep making the same expression, over time lines and wrinkles form over these areas.
Since Botox softens these contractions, your skin smooths out and appears younger after your treatment. Keep in mind, however, that your results from Botox are technique dependent. For this reason, only get injections from qualified aesthetic professionals, like the team at Becky Does Botox.
Many aesthetic products and services claim to turn back the hands of time and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. That means you have choices. Keep in mind that only Botox remains the most popular cosmetic injectable year after year.
Why is Botox so popular? One of the reasons is because of the amazing benefits this aesthetic injectable provides. Here’s a closer look:
If you have 15-20 minutes, you have time for Botox. But while the treatment is quick, Botox results last for up to four months. That means you can stop in for injections on your lunch break and enjoy the results well into the fall season.
Many patients talk about the significant emotional benefits they experience after starting Botox treatments. The top five include:
In fact, based on patient reports, researchers are now studying how to use Botox to help treat depression. They believe Botox may help because of the link between our mood and our “facial feedback” mechanism, which uses facial expressions to send feedback about our emotions to the brain.
One of the best things about Botox is that there’s no recovery period. You can get your injections and, other than a few simple precautions, you can get back to your normal routine right away.
There are also very few side effects with Botox. When they do happen, these include injection-site bruising, redness, or swelling. You can avoid these by following Ms. White’s pre- and post-Botox instructions.
When you get Botox from experienced aesthetic providers, like Ms. White at Becky Does Botox, studies show Botox injections are safe and effective. Plus, this neuromodulator has been FDA-approved for use for many years and by similar institutions all over the world.
You’ll love the natural, more youthful appearance regular Botox injections bring. In fact, the amazing results are the top reason so many people turn to this treatment year after year. Just remember, results from Botox are technique sensitive, so be sure to choose an experienced professional for treatment.
Thanks to the latest medical research, we know Botox doesn’t just smooth away existing lines. It can prevent deeper lines and wrinkles from forming. To stop these signs of aging from progressing, you’ll need regular injections when these wrinkles and lines begin to appear.
