When it comes to fighting wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® holds a distinguished place in the anti-aging arsenal, and has for years. Since its approval by the FDA in 2002, BOTOX has helped millions of people look younger by reducing many of the telltale signs of aging in mere minutes.
At Lasercare Skin Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering both the latest advancements in aesthetic procedures alongside products and services that have stood the test of time. At the head of our list is BOTOX, a cosmetic injectable that has become a mainstay for many of our patients in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Here’s a look at why BOTOX is still our most popular solution for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
While the world of anti-aging certainly doesn’t lack for solutions for almost every skin care concern, BOTOX is arguably the grandfather of them all, effectively tackling those lines that are etched into the top half of your face.
To understand how BOTOX works, let’s take a look at the underlying problem. Every time you squint, frown, smile, or furrow your brow, there are muscles below the surface that contract, pulling your skin along with them.
When you were younger, your skin bounced back as soon as these muscles relaxed again, leaving you with a smooth surface. As you age, however, your skin loses its structural support, which means that every time you contract your muscles, you’re creating well-worn paths that eventually become a permanent part of your facial features.
With BOTOX, we inject a botulinum toxin into the wrinkle-causing muscles to temporarily paralyze them, releasing their hold on your skin.
If you’re tired of looking like you’re constantly frustrated or angry because of frown lines that have taken up permanent residence between your eyebrows, BOTOX is just the solution you’re looking for.
In fact, BOTOX helps you start over and create your own expressions by also reducing the crow’s feet around your eyes and the deep lines across your forehead.
Because BOTOX has been around for so long, we’ve perfected its use, giving you a natural, not frozen, look that allows you to express yourself as you wish, without your wrinkles telling a different story.
One of the aspects our clients enjoy most about BOTOX, aside from its effectiveness, is that it goes to work almost immediately, often in 24-48 hours. As you wake each morning after your injections, you’ll be greeted by a face that looks a little more like the one you had from years gone by.
And these results last up to four months, at which point you simply return for another round of injections to maintain your youthful look. And considering that each treatment takes only minutes — usually 10-15 — your BOTOX commitment is short on time and long on results.
If you’d like to make an even bigger impact, talk to us about how we can combine dermal fillers with your BOTOX treatments to tackle the signs of aging in both the upper and lower halves of your face by reducing wrinkles and adding volume.
