Looking for a non-surgical solution to smooth out those pesky wrinkles? Look no further than Botox at Aesthetic Assets — our expert injectors can target unwanted forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, leaving you with a refreshed, youthful appearance. All it takes is a few simple and painless injections!
Diminish & Fade Unwanted Expression Lines
Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that can diminish and fade unwanted expression lines on the face. By injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin into targeted muscles, Botox can reduce muscle activity and prevent them from contracting, thus smoothing out the associated dynamic wrinkles formed when conveying expressions. This treatment can reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows without surgery or downtime. The results typically last three to six months.
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Bunny lines (lines on the nose)
- Gummy smile (excessive gum show)
- Vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines)
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Chin dimpling
- Neck bands (platysmal bands)
Dynamic Wrinkles vs. Static Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles form due to repeated muscle movement, such as frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows. These wrinkles can be effectively treated with Botox. Static wrinkles, however, are present even when the muscles are at rest.
These wrinkles are caused by sun damage, gravity, and the natural aging process and may require dermal fillers or laser skin resurfacing. Our injectors will evaluate your wrinkles and determine if you’re a good candidate for Botox.
Advantages of Botox:
- Non-surgical treatment
- No post-treatment downtime
- Quick treatment (usually takes less than 30 minutes)
- Temporary results
- Can treat a variety of concerns and areas
- Results typically appear within a few days
- Little to no discomfort during treatment
- Can prevent the formation of new wrinkles
How Botox Works
Botox, short for botulinum toxin, works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine at the junction where nerves meet muscles. When injected, Botox binds to the nerve endings that control muscle contraction, preventing them from releasing acetylcholine. The targeted muscles are temporarily weakened, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The effects last several months, after which the nerve endings gradually regenerate, and muscle function returns to normal.
Prevent Or Delay New Wrinkles
Botox can help prevent or delay the onset of new wrinkles by temporarily weakening the muscles that cause them to form. By reducing muscle activity, Botox can prevent the skin from creasing and folding, which can lead to the development of new wrinkles. Starting Botox treatments at an earlier age, typically in your late 20s to early 30s, can be an effective way to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Your Botox Session
During your Botox session, our injector will begin by discussing your treatment goals and examining the areas you want to target. They will use a fine needle to inject the Botox into the targeted muscles. You may feel a slight pinch or stinging sensation during the injections, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated. The treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes, after which you can immediately resume your normal activities.
Results & Recommended Frequency
You should start to see the effects of your Botox treatment within a few days, with optimal results appearing within one to two weeks. The effects of Botox typically last around three to six months, after which the targeted muscles gradually regain their function. To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling regular Botox treatments every three to six months, depending on your needs and goals. Our injector can help you develop a personalized treatment plan.
Side Effects & Recovery
After your Botox treatment, you may experience mild side effects, including redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects usually subside within a few days. It’s important to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area, as this can cause the Botox to migrate to other areas.
You can resume your normal activities immediately following your treatment, but you should avoid strenuous exercise or lying down for at least four hours.
