The aging process can be tough for many people. Even if you eat right, avoid excessive sun exposure and smoking, and drink plenty of water, you can still end up with wrinkles that make you look older than you feel. Genetics often play a significant role in the aging process, which means some people begin to develop wrinkles in their 30s, while others may enjoy smooth skin into their 40s or even 50s.
For people in Huntington, NY who are suffering from wrinkles, Botox treatment may be the perfect answer. Botox minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, giving you a relaxed and more youthful appearance.
What is Botox
Years of smiling, laughing, and even frowning eventually cause dynamic wrinkles on the face. These often appear as deep lines or folds on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. Botox is an FDA-approved neuromodulator that temporarily blocks the signal between the nerves and the muscles. By blocking this signal, the muscles relax, wrinkles diminish, and the skin appears smooth.
The Botox procedure
Botox treatments are quick and straightforward, most sessions are completed in around thirty minutes. After carefully determining where to place the injections, the doctor will use a tiny needle to inject the Botox into the desired area. Within a few days, patients will notice skin appearing much smoother and tighter. Maximum results are usually seen within two weeks and will last for several months. Because Botox treatments are temporary, patients will need to schedule maintenance sessions to maintain long term results. As patients continue to receive Botox injections, the amount of time the treatment lasts will begin to extend.
Patients who are also dealing with wrinkles or volume loss in the lower half of the face may benefit from dermal fillers in addition to Botox.
