The Ideal Solution For Unwanted Wrinkles

Botox is a cosmetic treatment that uses a small amount of a highly diluted botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze facial muscles. It is the ideal solution for unwanted wrinkles and fine lines on the face, as it can reduce their appearance and give the skin a smoother, more youthful look. Botox targets the root cause of unwanted wrinkles by relaxing the contracted muscles responsible for their appearance, leading to smooth, natural results.

Botox Treats:

  • Forehead creases
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
  • Creases and wrinkles on the chin
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips
  • Other facial creases and wrinkles

How Does Botox Work?

The active ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and specific muscles. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox in Oviedo can temporarily relax the over-contracted muscles responsible for the onset of your expression lines and dynamic wrinkles. Over time, as the facial muscles relax, the associated wrinkles smoothen and fade away from the skin’s surface. The results appear gradually and last for 3 to 4 months.

Prevent New Wrinkles

Early intervention with Botox can also help you avoid or delay the onset of new wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles become permanent because of years of continuous use of the facial muscles responsible for your expressions. If you start undergoing Botox treatments in your 20s, you can prevent your expression lines from deepening or becoming permanent, thus allowing you to delay or prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

Benefits Of Botox:

  • Minimally invasive treatments
  • Minimal discomfort during the treatment
  • Addresses the root cause of dynamic wrinkles
  • Delay or prevent new wrinkles from appearing
  • Concludes within 20 minutes
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • Resume daily activities and work immediately

Why Only Dynamic Wrinkles?

There are two types of facial wrinkles — static and dynamic. Static wrinkles appear because of the loss of collagen and elastin due to aging, sun exposure, and other factors, whereas dynamic wrinkles appear because of excessive facial contractions and movements. When you’re young, dynamic wrinkles only appear when you actively communicate certain emotions, but as you grow older, the wrinkles deepen and become permanent.

Botox only treats dynamic wrinkles because it temporarily paralyzes the muscles that create movement in the face, thus smoothening and softening the associated wrinkles. Therefore, Botox is not effective in treating static wrinkles. However, if you have static wrinkles, facial creases, and other creases caused by the loss of hyaluronic acid or collagen, you can also get dermal fillers and Sculptra injections.

Your Botox Session

Your Botox in Oviedo session typically takes around 20-30 minutes and is relatively painless. Before the procedure, your medical provider will discuss your concerns and desired results with you and then mark the specific areas of your face. During the procedure, small amounts of the botulinum toxin will be injected into the marked areas using a fine needle. You may feel a small pinch or sting, but it is usually not painful.

Side Effects & Recovery

The most common side effects of Botox include mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites for a few days. The side effects are extremely mild and dissipate naturally. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment, but please avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two. You should also keep your head elevated and avoid massaging the treated areas for a few hours.

Results From Botox

The results from your Botox treatment will appear gradually over several days. After a few days, your skin will start looking smoother, softer, and more youthful, and the existing wrinkles will gradually disappear. The results from your Botox in Oviedo will continue improving for up to two weeks, following which you can get a top-up to improve the outcome. The results last 3 to 4 months, following which you need maintenance sessions. Most patients need 3 to 4 sessions per year.
