Enhance Your Natural Beauty with BOTOX® Injections
Once the visible signs of facial aging begin to appear — including lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes — you may start to feel less like yourself and more like someone you hardly recognize. While cosmetic surgery is certainly an option for reversing the unwanted signs of facial aging, it’s not the only choice patients have today. With cosmetic injectables, like dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, it’s possible to smooth and minimize stubborn signs of aging and get a beautiful, more youthful look that appears natural. Here, registered nurse and certified injector Cyndie Nohr — co-owner of The Skin Shop Medspa Scottsdale — offers helpful information on the exciting results that may be possible with one of today’s most popular injectables: BOTOX.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a widely used injectable product that has a number of cosmetic and functional applications. For aesthetic purposes, BOTOX is considered an injectable wrinkle relaxer that is specifically used to smooth out expressive lines and wrinkles on the face. These lines, known as “dynamic,” often appear in our 30s and 40s as a result of repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions over the years. When BOTOX is injected into the muscles responsible for those expressions, it works to temporarily “freeze” or paralyze the muscle, forcing the surface lines to relax and smooth away.
Which wrinkles can be treated with BOTOX?
Some of the most common types of lines and wrinkles treated with BOTOX injections include:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- 11 lines
- Glabellar lines
- Brow lines
- Lines between the eyebrows
When these visible and often strong lines are forced to relax, patients can regain a more refreshed, youthful appearance that complements their natural features and leaves them feeling more like themselves once again.
Will I look fake after BOTOX injections?
When BOTOX is injected in the proper areas and quantities by an experienced and knowledgeable injector, the results can appear strikingly natural. During your initial consultation and pretreatment evaluation, Cyndie will discuss your desired outcome, assess your concerns, and ask you to make a series of expressions to determine the strength of your lines and the most appropriate amount of BOTOX for you.
How long do BOTOX injections last?
About one week after treatment, patients will begin to enjoy the full effects of BOTOX wrinkle relaxers. While the longevity of your BOTOX injections can vary based on a number of individual factors, the majority of patients can expect their BOTOX to last for an average of about 3 – 4 months. After this time, repeat injections can be administered to help restore the smoother look you’ve become used to. For many people, the effects of BOTOX begin to last slightly longer after multiple rounds of injections. Should you notice a return of your unwanted lines and wrinkles sooner than expected, Cyndie can perform repeat injections at an earlier time to ensure you maintain a consistently smooth look you can feel confident about.
