As you get older, you start to notice more signs of your age. And though experience comes with age, sometimes when you look in the mirror, you feel less beautiful and less confident than you used to feel.
At Skin Med Spa, we know this feeling all too well, so we offer a simple treatment to help you look more beautiful and feel more confident: Botox.
That’s right, Botox. You’ve heard the term many times, but keep reading to find out exactly how this injectable can work its magic on your appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox is made from botulinum toxin type A. The goal of using Botox is to smooth out the lines and wrinkles in your skin; the nonsurgical injection blocks nerve impulses, which relaxes the muscles in the treated area, causing your skin to become smoother and look more refreshed.
Botox is especially effective in treating muscles that you contract repeatedly with facial expressions, such as when you frown or squint. Frown lines, creases in your forehead, smile and laugh lines, crow’s feet around your eyes, vertical lines between your eyebrows — they all can be lessened with a Botox injection.
What are the effects of Botox?
Physically, you can expect to see skin that looks smoother, younger, and more vital. Plus, the Botox doesn’t just smooth existing wrinkles, it also prevents future lines and wrinkles from forming. It also boosts collagen production, further helping your skin to look better and better.
On the mental side, the effects of Botox can be just as great. Imagine how great you’ll feel when you look in the mirror and see younger, smoother skin looking back at you. When you’re happy about your physical appearance, you’ll exude an intangible confidence as well. You’ll probably wonder why you waited so long to get started.
What is the treatment like?
Your provider will numb the treatment area and inject the Botox just below the skin. It’s a quick procedure, but some doctors do recommend a series of the treatments to get the best results. You may notice a little redness or swelling near the injection site, but ice helps reduce those effects quickly. Each treatment usually lasts anywhere from three to six months before an additional treatment may be needed.
