When it comes to anti-aging techniques, there’s no shortage of effective tools. From chemical peels to laser treatments, there are myriad ways to dial back the years on your skin. If you’re curious about dipping your toes into the fountain of youth, there’s no better place to start than with cosmetic injectables, namely Botox.
Here at Aesthetic Assets, we offer the latest weapons in the war against aging and few have been more effective and more popular than Botox, which is arguably the grandfather of modern anti-aging treatments. If you’d like to explore what our patients in Scottsdale, Arizona, have already discovered, here are five reasons you’re missing out if you haven’t tried Botox.
1. Dynamic results
Botox is extremely effective on the dynamic wrinkles and lines on the top half of your face, namely your crow’s feet, forehead lines, and brow lines. These lines are a result of years of facial expressions. Every time you smile, squint, frown, or furrow your brow in concentration, your muscles contract your skin and form lines. As your skin ages and loses collagen, however, these lines and wrinkles linger long after your expression is gone because your skin is no longer as elastic as it once was. With Botox, we sideline the muscles responsible for pulling your skin, leaving you with a smoother surface.
2. Natural results
Gone are the days when Botox “froze” your face, preventing you from having any expression at all. Botox use has come a long way, and we’re able to relax the lines around your forehead and eyes without interfering with your ability to make natural facial expressions. So go ahead and laugh, smile, and even express anger.
3. A needle and no more
If you want to address the signs of aging on your face, but you’re understandably hesitant to go through a more invasive procedure that comes with considerable downtime, Botox is the way to go. We only need to inject a small needle into your muscles to deliver dramatic results. When you come in, we sit down with you to review the areas you want to treat and come up with a plan. Typically, it takes several strategic injections of Botox to get the desired effect, and then you’re free to get on with your day directly afterward. In fact, most Botox sessions last only 15 minutes.
4. The big reveal
If patience isn’t your strong suit, Botox delivers quick results. After your treatment with us, all you need to do is carry on with your normal activities while the neurotoxin goes to work to temporarily relax your muscles. In most cases, this takes 4-7 days, which means that every morning when you wake up, you’ll be greeted by an increasingly younger-looking face as the Botox goes to work.
5. Keeping up
One of the biggest benefits of Botox is the fact that it’s easy to maintain your results. Typically, Botox lasts approximately 3 to 4 months. When your lines begin to reappear, all you need to do is come back in for a follow-up treatment, which takes only minutes. And as you use Botox, your results may last longer in between treatments as your muscles begin to atrophy on their own because of prolonged disuse. In the end, all it takes is several quick visits to our offices each year to keep up that youthful appearance.
