Botox actually holds the #1 ranking for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments in the nation, with dermal fillers and laser hair reduction closely behind.
Because of the high demand to look, feel and appear more youthful and rejuvenated, many of these nonsurgical treatments are an affordable and quality option for many customers.
Many clients prefer Botox injections, because it does not require downtime, is not as costly as plastic surgery, reveals naturally appearing results and takes under an hour to receive treatment.
The entire procedure is performed by a medical professional and is practically a painless way to eliminate lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox Work?
The Botox cosmetic injections work by temporarily freezing certain muscles, which then causes them to relax. There is a common misunderstanding that your face will be frozen after Botox, but that isn’t the case. You’ll still have a range of your facial muscles and be able to make expressions, but the Botox prevents targeted muscles from contracting and forming those unwanted wrinkles.
There are three common areas of the face where Botox is injected:
- Between the eyebrows. A few units of Botox injected between the eyebrows can reduce the appearance of frown lines, the two vertical lines that create an “11.”
- The forehead. Botox can be applied to the forehead to reduce the appearance of a furrowed face.
- Crow’s feet. To create an overall younger appearance, Botox can be injected on the side of your eyes, which are most commonly referred to as crow’s feet.
In addition to the FDA-approved uses, there are many off-label uses for Botox, including:
- The lips. A Botox “Lip Pop” is one of the most popular off-label treatments, which gives patients the appearance of fuller lips.
- Eyebrow arch. This treatment includes injecting Botox into the brow depressors to create an eyebrow lift.
- Platysmal bands. Botox injections can relax the area of the neck that creates a V-shape as you age.
