BOTOX® can a be the perfect secret weapon in your arsenal against the normal aging process. Countless people are using this FDA-approved neuromodulator in their efforts to age both gracefully and beautifully. Residents in Thousand Oaks can benefit from the amazing results of this neuromodulator as well. During these treatments, very small amounts of this solution are injected at the brow, around the eyes, and around the mouth. Once inserted into the skin, BOTOX® instantly releases the tension that’s responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet. It can also smooth away the vertical, perioral wrinkles at the lips that are known as smoker’s lines. Following are several ways in which this treatment can help you achieve impressive and totally natural-looking results.
Create Smooth and Wrinkle-Free Skin Without Surgery
Years ago, people in Thousand Oaks had only a very limited number of ways in which to smooth out age-related facial creases. Now, however, you don’t have to undergo an invasive, skin-tightening procedure in order to regain the look of youth. The injections typically take just minutes to perform and there are absolutely no incisions required. This means that there’s no risk of scarring, no extended period of healing, and very few risks associated with these procedures overall.
Maintain the Ability to Make Natural-Looking Facial Expressions
The key to obtaining subtle and natural-looking results lies in using very small amounts of BOTOX® at each injection site. This strategy allows the doctor to only immobilize those muscles that are responsible for dynamic wrinkling, rather than all of your expressive muscles. As such, once these treatments are complete, you’ll still be able to laugh, frown, smile, wrinkle your nose in distaste, and furrow your brow. Ultimately, you’ll have the same ability to communicate your emotions via a broad range of facial expressions, and without showing off dynamic creases in the process.
Using BOTOX® with Other Non-Surgical Treatments
When it comes to minimizing the signs of aging, BOTOX® works incredibly well as a standalone solution for dynamic wrinkles, but it is not an effective treatment for superficial skin issues or advanced, static wrinkling. Sunspots, enlarged pores, age spots, melasma, deep creases along the nasolabial folds, and loose, sagging skin are all problems that require alternative procedures. Luckily, BOTOX® can be safely and easily paired with a number of proven, non-invasive remedies. During your consultation appointment, the doctor will review your full range of cosmetic concerns. Together, the two of you can put together a comprehensive and integrated plan for addressing all of these things without incisions, and without extended downtime. This plan might include BOTOX® and dermal filler injections, or BOTOX® and non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedures like chemical peels.
What About the Results?
The effects of BOTOX® only last just four to six months. After this time has passed, full nerve communication will resume and the full functionality of the treated muscles will be restored. For many people, this means that their dynamic wrinkles will gradually start to reappear. The neuromodulator can be safely used two to three times per year for extended benefits. Thus if you love BOTOX®, you can enjoy a youthful and line-free look all of the time.
