Aging can cause significant aesthetic changes to your face. Some of these changes occur over time, while others appear overnight. As cosmetic and aesthetic treatments become more advanced and easier, nearly any aesthetic change from aging can be slowed or reversed without the need for surgery or disruption of your everyday schedule.
Although most of the minimally or non-invasive aesthetic treatments can be used to address a wide variety of conditions, many of them give the best result when used to address specific conditions. These dermal injectable treatments are safe and easy and, since each session takes less than 15 minutes, are very convenient.
One of these treatments, which is often included in the dermal filler category, is not a filler at all. While still an injectable dermal aesthetic treatment, BOTOX® does not restore lost volume in the face. Instead, the active ingredient of botulinum toxin A temporarily blocks specific muscles in the face from contracting and creating lines and wrinkles.
There are 3 great benefits of BOTOX®.
There is no downtime after each session. Though there might be minor bruising around the treatment area, this is minimal and subsides soon after the treatment. There are no restrictions or recovery period after.
BOTOX® can be combined with other treatments. Since BOTOX® works differently than other dermal injectables and treatments, it can be safely combined to provide enhanced results. In many cases, this provides even better results than receiving the treatments alone.
The results from BOTOX® can last longer with each treatment. As the primary way BOTOX® works is by blocking the contractions of facial muscles, these muscles will begin to lose strength over time. During subsequent visits, this requires less to be needed to give the same result and, in some cases, may not require any.
