Are you a Lafayette area resident who is bothered by wrinkles between your eyebrows or on your forehead? Known as dynamic wrinkles, these unwelcome skin developments can be effectively minimized using BOTOX® injections. BOTOX® consists of a purified protein solution that has been used safely for over five decades.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a type of wrinkle-reducing treatment involving the injection of a solution that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. The product has been used by thousands of patients to minimize the appearance of wrinkles due to repetitive muscle contractions. Eventually, the injected product will be absorbed, and muscles will begin performing as they did previous to the injections.
Even though it is an injectable, this treatment is different from dermal fillers. Dermal fillers actually fill out the area where they are injected, while BOTOX® gets to the root of the problem and prevents wrinkles from occurring in the first place. That is why patients are starting to get these injections at a younger age. Previously, this treatment was considered something for older women. Nowadays, men and women in their 20s and 30s are discovering the benefits of the wrinkle-reducing and preventing power of BOTOX®.
Is It Safe?
Yes. The treatment has been in use for cosmetic purposes for a minimum of five decades, which surprises many people. The injections were once only used for celebrities due to the cost, but the product is now enjoying widespread use, particularly over the past two decades.
Injections are considered safe for the smoothing away of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. Injections can also be used for the relaxation of muscles around the jawline and for smoothing the neck area.
How Long before I Notice Results?
Our Lafayette patients typically begin noticing results in about four days after their injections, however it may take up to one week for optimal results to become evident. Results can last months, meaning you should only require three to four treatments per year to maintain your results.
