If you’re self-conscious about facial wrinkles, Botox may be a great option. It’s a safe, non-invasive treatment that’s been around for years and can smooth out the wrinkles near your forehead, eye, and lip areas. Botox can help you achieve the younger complexion you’ve been longing for. But, how long do Botox results last? Keep reading to find out.
How Does Botox Work
Botox is formulated with a neuromodulator called botulinum toxin to reduce dynamic wrinkles, which arise over time from the facial expressions you make. Unlike wrinkle creams and other anti-aging treatments you may have used in the past, Botox can block muscular signals and prevent your face from contracting and causing wrinkles. While there is minimal to no pain with Botox, we can provide you with a cream or ice to ensure optimal comfort after treatment if you’d like.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox Cosmetic has been approved by the FDA since 2002 for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and is completely safe to use. In fact, millions of patients in the United States have used Botox to address their aging concerns.
Botox is Not a Permanent Solution
While Botox is not a permanent solution to dynamic wrinkles, it does deliver long-lasting results. Although the results may last anywhere between three to six months, many of our patients enjoy their results for three to four months.
The severity of your wrinkles and strength of your facial muscles will dictate the longevity of your results. You are welcome to return to our office for additional Botox treatments once you notice your results begin to fade.
Good Candidates for Botox
If you are concerned about the dynamic wrinkles on your face, you may be a good candidate for Botox. You may also find Botox beneficial if you are a younger man or woman and looking for a way to prevent dynamic wrinkles from developing.
