If you can no longer ignore those fine lines and wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror, then it may be time to consider an aesthetic treatment. A true frontrunner in the world of aesthetics for effectively smoothing lines and wrinkles is BOTOX® Cosmetic.
This FDA-approved neurotoxin tackles the signs of aging by essentially blocking certain muscle contractions that cause lines to form through repeated facial expressions. With such consistent results time and time again, it’s no wonder BOTOX has become the most popular neurotoxin in America. Master injector Dr. Irene Gladstein is proud to offer this revolutionary anti-aging treatment at all three Project Glammers locations.
How does BOTOX work?
When you make facial expressions, such as frowning or scowling, your muscles contract and cause your skin to furrow and fold. BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is strategically injected into the targeted area of the skin where wrinkles are present. It then binds to nerve endings in the muscles to temporarily halt the specific contractions that lead to skin creasing. As a result, patients experience noticeably reduced or even temporarily eliminated frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other facial wrinkles for up to four months in many cases.
What areas can BOTOX be used to treat?
BOTOX is quite versatile and can be used on several areas of the face where wrinkles commonly form. These include:
- Forehead creases
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Lines around the nose
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Smoker’s lines
- Chin dimpling
- Marionette lines
- Neck bands
- So much more
Am I a candidate for BOTOX injections?
BOTOX is generally considered safe and effective for adults of varying ages who are in overall good health and bothered by moderate to severe wrinkles. Many men and women choose BOTOX to address the signs of aging in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, but even younger adults are electing for injections to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. Whatever your reasoning, our skilled injectors will discuss your personal aesthetic goals and help you determine if BOTOX is right for you.
Do BOTOX injections require any downtime?
In addition to the obvious skin-smoothing benefits BOTOX provides, our clients especially love that no downtime is needed following treatment. Most people get right back to their normal activities as soon as their injections are done. You’ll just need to refrain from lying down for about four hours after your treatment, so the product doesn’t migrate from the injection site. Also, we recommend you don’t exercise for 24 hours after your injections.
When will I notice results from BOTOX injections?
The smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles usually starts happening for most people within the first 24 to 48 hours. But it’s generally around the 30-day mark when optimal results are experienced.
How long do results from BOTOX injections last?
In many cases, results from BOTOX injections can last for three to four months. Once the effects wear off, you can choose additional injections to maintain your results for as long as you desire. Keep in mind that individual results may vary due to several factors, including your age, lifestyle, and individual skin structure. We’ll go over all realistic expectations at your appointment.
