Consumers now have a very easy and non-surgical way to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable solution that’s designed to temporarily block the nerve signals to select muscle groups. When injected around the mouth, across the brow and around the eyes, this purified protein has the power to release dynamic wrinkles caused by tension in the expressive muscles. Because there’s no need for incisions with BOTOX® injections, no removal of tissue and no recovery time, this popular anti-aging treatment has been dubbed “the lunchtime facelift”.
Getting BOTOX® Injections in McAllen
One of the greatest benefits of a BOTOX® anti-aging treatment is the ability to gain short-term results. Unlike many invasive anti-aging procedures, BOTOX® injections only have a temporary effect on a person’s appearance. After about four to six months, depending on the situation, nerve signals to the expressive muscles will resume and the targeted area will return to its pre-treatment state. This makes BOTOX® ideal for people who are wary about committing to more permanent surgical solutions. Best of all, for patients who like their BOTOX® results, these injections can be performed as needed.
Determining if BOTOX® Injections in McAllen are Right for You
People are likely to develop two distinct types of wrinkles as part of the normal aging process. These include both dynamic and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are small creases that appear at the surface of the skin resulting from excess tension in the expressive muscles, or the muscles that control facial movement. Given that BOTOX® injections temporarily relax these muscles, this product is capable of releasing the tension responsible for dynamic wrinkles.
BOTOX® injections can be safely used in conjunction with dermal filler technologies to reduce the appearance of both dynamic and static wrinkles in a single office visit. Most healthy adults who want to correct dynamic wrinkles make good candidates for this treatment.
What You Should Know About BOTOX® Injections
Most BOTOX® injections take just minutes to complete. Before any work is performed, a mild, topical numbing agent can be applied. A very short series of injections is then made at the brow, around the mouth and around the eyes. As soon as these are done, patients are free to go. While most people see a marked reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as soon as their procedures are finished, the total effects of BOTOX® may take a few days to manifest. However, you may still notice some immediate results.
