What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is one of the most popular and extensively researched aesthetic treatments available today. Over 417 peer-reviewed studies have been conducted on this product, and it is available for use in 78 different countries. More than 10 million vials of this injectable have been sold in the United States alone.
Part of a class of injectables called neuromodulators, BOTOX® is FDA-approved to soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles between the brows and around the eyes.
How Does it Work?
One of the most common causes of fine lines and wrinkles, especially on the face, is muscle contraction. Your facial muscles contract whenever you speak, laugh, smile, frown, or otherwise express nearly any emotion. While this expression is a healthy and inevitable part of life, the wrinkles and fine lines that result from can be a source of stress for many people.
The active ingredient of BOTOX® and other neuromodulators like Dysport® and XEOMIN® is botulinum toxin, a substance naturally found in the body. When injected into the facial muscles, this substance temporarily relaxes them. This relaxation allows the wrinkles and fine lines above the muscles to soften and smooth, temporarily improving their appearance.
Because BOTOX® is usually flushed out of the body within four months of receiving treatment, routine injections are required to maintain any visible results.
What can it Treat?
BOTOX® can be used to improve the appearance of a wide range of wrinkles and fine lines, including:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Eyebrow furrows
- Drooping eyelids
- Vertical lip lines
- Dimpling of the chin
Botox Masseter Injections
BOTOX® can also be used for facial contouring. This injection helps create more of an elongated, v-shaped face. This style of injection is popular with patients who grind their teeth and have fuller faces.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
Nearly anyone interested in correcting fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, and mouth is a potential candidate for BOTOX® treatments. However, all patients must be in good health and between the ages of 18-65 to receive these injections.
Before undergoing treatment, patients must schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Tracey Stokes or Dr. Laura Sudarsky. During this appointment, one of these doctors will discuss your treatment expectations and previous medical history with you in order to decide if BOTOX® is the aesthetic procedure that can best fit your needs.
