Facial expressions help us communicate with others, whether we frown, smile, or laugh. Each time our faces form an expression, though, the skin folds and wrinkles as the facial muscles tug on it. Over time, these can become lines and wrinkles that many people would like to get rid of. Botox® can smooth away lines and wrinkles to leave you looking younger and more relaxed

What is Botox®?

Botox® relaxes wrinkles using botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that interrupts the communication between the facial muscles and the nerves that make them contract. In the minute quantities used for aesthetic treatments, Botox® works very safely. It has many medical as well as cosmetic uses, including the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and eyelid spasms. 

How Does Botox® Work?

When we smile or frown, the nerves send signals to our facial muscles, telling them to contract. Botox® interferes with that signal, so the muscles do not get the message to contract. Instead, they remain relaxed, and the skin above them can become smooth and relaxed as well. 

How Long Does Botox® Last?

Botox®  stays active for three to four months after treatment. Many people schedule regular appointments to refresh their Botox® and keep themselves looking younger. It has even become a popular maintenance treatment among younger people who do not have severe lines or wrinkles but want to make sure they don’t develop them. 

Where Can Botox® Be Used?

The most common places for Botox® are crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal lines across the forehead, and the deep creases between the brows (glabellar lines). However, it also treats “bunny lines” formed by wrinkling the nose or a “gummy smile” that reveals more gums than you would like. It can also treat lines around the mouth and platysmal bands in the neck.

What Results Will I See With Botox®?

You will start to see results within seven to ten days. Lines and wrinkles in the treated area will relax and fade away as the skin becomes smooth. Since your Renew MD injection specialist places Botox® with skill and experience, you will maintain all your natural facial expressions

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®?

You can go back to your usual activities after Botox® though they do not recommend exercise, saunas or hot tubs for 48 hours post treatment.  Wait two weeks before treating yourself to any facial treatment.

Treatment only takes ten to fifteen minutes, so you can stop in, have your injections, and return to work.

Am I A Good Candidate for Botox®?

Most people can have Botox®. It has an excellent safety record, and most healthy adults can benefit from its anti-wrinkle effects. If you have a neuromuscular condition or are pregnant or breastfeeding, Botox® may not be a good option for you. 

I thought everything from my welcome, to the facility presentation, to the incredibly detailed and professional appointment with Sarah were fantastic. I trust and am excited to be working with Renew MD.
