Botox is muscle relaxants that are injected to reduce the appearance of dynamic lines and facial wrinkles. Botox works to minimize the appearance of wrinkles by stopping the underlying muscles from contracting. This results in a smoother, younger-looking appearance, the effects last for 3-4 months.
WHEN DO YOU SEE THE RESULTS?
Results are not immediately noticeable. Botox or Boletero have an onset of two weeks.
IS BOTOX FOR OLDER PEOPLE?
No, starting a little younger and being proactive in your approach can mean that this treatment will be needed less often when you are older.
WHAT AREAS CAN BOTOX TREAT?
Botox can treat a number of areas on your face, neck and body. Please book a consultation to see which treatment is right for you.
Crow’s feet, which are fine lines that extend from the corner of the eye toward the temple, appear over time as the result of facial expressions like laughing, smiling, and squinting. Botox can relax the dynamic muscles around the eyes to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet. The presence of wrinkles on the forehead can make us appear older than we are and even give us the appearance of being angry or upset. Botox injections can relax forehead lines and smooth out deeper wrinkles and furrows. Botox can be used to lift a low set brow resulting in a non-surgical brow lift that opens up the eyes. The ‘11’s’, or frown lines, appear between the eyebrows as the result of years of facial expressions. Botox will stop the muscles underneath the 11’s from contracting to result in a smoother more relaxed brow. Horizontal wrinkles across the nose, or ‘bunny lines’, can be easily minimized through carefully placed Botox injections.
It works by relaxing the muscle injected, therefore reducing the contraction and smoothing the area.
