Do you look in the mirror and see more lines, wrinkles and folds than you used to? As the skin ages, it becomes thinner and is not as elastic as it once was. While there are several skin rejuvenation treatments on the market, not many of them treat lines and wrinkles at the source.
BOTOX® works to relax the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles while maintaining your natural facial expressions. BOTOX® is a safe, non-surgical solution to the problem of smile lines and folds. At Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa, we offer this treatment for long-lasting, natural-looking results.
The Secret Behind BOTOX®
Muscles only contract in one direction. When we smile or frown, the contracted muscles pull on the facial skin. This is what causes smile lines and other visible signs of aging. BOTOX® prevents this by keeping the muscles from fully contracting. This procedure relaxes and refreshes your appearance, erasing the years from your face.
Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment
This type of cosmetic treatment works best on those who have moderate to severe signs of aging and are beginning to notice them near the mouth, eyes and forehead areas. BOTOX® is a preferred treatment method for skin rejuvenation because it requires no incisions, abrasive techniques or harsh chemicals in order to get results.
Instead of treating the skin directly, BOTOX® targets the source of wrinkles and lines beneath the upper dermal layers. This neuromodulator can be safely injected in various regions of the face. There is no downtime, and our patients enjoy being able to undergo this quick treatment around their busy schedule.
The effects of BOTOX® take about one or two days to relax wrinkles and lines. However, the facial muscles remain relaxed for up to six months afterward. Another benefit if BOTOX® treatment is the evidence that treated muscles can become trained to stay relaxed, potentially reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and after the protein solution is absorbed by the body.
What You Should Know Before Treatment
The only precaution that typically needs to be taken by the client is to abstain from consuming alcohol and pain relievers for a week or so prior to treatment. This reduces the chances of swelling or reddening at the injection points.
