Although aging is a natural part of life, its changes are not ones that must be lived with forever. Rather than putting up with unwanted lines and wrinkles, trying to cover them up with makeup or using topical treatments that do not reach below the surface of the skin, you can choose a tried and tested solution called BOTOX®. This treatment is safe and simple to use on many wrinkles.
Which Lines and Wrinkles Respond to BOTOX®?
BOTOX® works best on the beginning stages of wrinkles. These lines are typically not very deep. In fact, you may not consider anything about them at first. However, left untreated, these lines will gradually deepen and become fixed in the skin.
Treating these lines while they are still dynamic can keep them from becoming more difficult to address. They are also called expression lines because they form only when your face is actively moving and fade away when your facial muscles are completely relaxed. BOTOX® can smooth away these wrinkles by working on the muscles that are causing them. However, it cannot fill in deep-set wrinkles.
Is BOTOX® Safe to Use?
This is an FDA-approved treatment option for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and across the forehead. Specifically, it is mainly used on crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyes and furrows on the forehead. However, we can also use it in a variety of other ways, such as on marionette lines. When used precisely, it can produce a natural-looking effect.
How Effective is BOTOX®?
Results vary, but the treatment is typically incredibly effective when used on expression lines. Within days, these lines will fade from the skin. The results of a single treatment can typically last for multiple months. You may even choose to use this treatment preventatively if you are in your younger years.
BOTOX® treatments give you a simple way to look more youthful without the need for surgery. If you are ready to renew your skin and discover a beautifully natural look, schedule a consultation at Atomic Dermatology in Pasco. Contact us today to book your appointment and learn more.
