Top 3 Reasons to Try Botox® for the First Time

When facial expressions cause lines and wrinkles, Botox® can smooth them away to help you look relaxed, refreshed, and younger. Our facial muscles help us communicate our feelings, but they also pull and crease our skin. Over time, these repetitive motions add up to lines and wrinkles. 

How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® contains a neurotoxin called botulinum. When injected into the facial muscles, Botox® reaches the nerves that tell these muscles to contract. It stops the nerves from sending signals, and without signals from the nerves, the muscles will relax and allow the skin to become smooth and unwrinkled. Botox® can treat crow’s feet around the eyes, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines. 

Despite being called a neurotoxin, Botox® does not harm nerves or muscles. After the treatment wears off, all communication between nerves and muscles will return to normal. Botox® has an extensive record of safety, with dozens of applications in the medical field as well as treating lines and wrinkles.

Top Three Reasons to Try Botox® for the First Time

You Want to Look Younger (Rejuvenation)

Expression lines can make people look older than they really are. Trying Botox® for the first time will allow you to see how much it can turn back the clock on your facial aging. Because these lines and wrinkles develop over time, you may not realize how much they can affect you. 

You Want to Avoid Wrinkles (Prejuvenation)

Some people start Botox® as early as their 20’s. Do they have expression lines at that age? No, but they have the repetitive facial expressions that will create those lines. People can delay or prevent these wrinkles from forming by silencing the nerve signals and preventing pulling and tugging on the skin. 

You Want to Look Relaxed (Rejuvenation)

Forehead creases and deep grooves between the eyebrows can make a person look tired, anxious, or even angry. When these lines and wrinkles relax, you can look more relaxed, happier, and more like yourself. 

What Results Will I See With Botox®?

You can expect to see results beginning anywhere from a few days to two weeks. Your facial muscles will relax, and you will notice lines and wrinkles in the treated areas begin to fade and smooth away. These results will last about three to four months. Many people schedule regular Botox® sessions to maintain their results over time. 

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®?

You will not have any downtime with Botox®. You may notice some soreness or redness at the injection sites, but this will fade quickly. 

Am I a Candidate for Botox®?

Almost anyone makes a good candidate for Botox®. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a botulinum treatment before, you should not have Botox®.
