What does Botox do?
Botox treatments are most popular in Nashville to help reduce the signs of aging by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
If you ask someone to guess your age and they tell you that you are a lot younger than what you really are, you feel great. However, if you ask someone to guess your age and they tell you that you are a lot older than what you really are, you probably feel terrible. If this sounds like your situation, now might be the time for you to think about having BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. BOTOX Cosmetic is a unique cosmetic treatment. It is designed to smooth out, remove, and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
First of all, BOTOX Cosmetic is not a dermal filler. While, dermal fillers can also remove certain types of wrinkles, but they do it by adding volume to your skin. A dermal filler could be compared to blowing air into a balloon. When you blow air into a balloon, the wrinkles that the balloon has go away. When dermal fillers are injected into your face, they give you back some of the facial volume that you’ve lost.
On the other hand, BOTOX is designed to actually address the muscles underneath your skin. The key ingredient in BOTOX is a mild neurotoxin called onabotulinumtoxinA. This toxin targets nerves and prevents them from sending or receiving responses to the brain. As a result, it temporarily relaxes the muscles in the treated area.
BOTOX works because as you get older, your skin gets thinner. So, the movements of your facial muscles underneath your skin can start to etch lines into your face. BOTOX Cosmetic prevents or stops this from happening. The result is smooth skin and a face that has a lot less visible wrinkles.
What can I expect during Botox treatments?
During the treatment, the BOTOX Cosmetic solution is skillfully injected into the preselected area. This results in your muscles eventually becoming relaxed. This leaves you with smoother skin and the ability to smile without worrying about crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles.
One of the nice things about BOTOX Cosmetic is that the treatments don’t take a lot of time. Most treatments can be performed in just minutes. You come into the office, you have the treatment done and you walk out. You can go back to work or you can go back to your everyday activities.
How soon will I see my Botox results?
In the days following your treatment, you will start to notice a difference. People around you will start to notice a difference as well. They’re going to think that you are more rested or that you are happier, but they won’t necessarily be able to tell that you had anything done. You will still be able to make all of your normal facial expressions. The only difference will be that the skin in the treated area remains smooth instead of displaying dynamic wrinkles.
