How does Botox work?

Botox is a special drug primarily used for cosmetic treatments to your face and other areas. The drug is made up of bacteria related to botulism, but is completely safe for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. Botox continues to be one of the most popular nonsurgical treatments among both doctors and patients because of its dependable results for treating fine lines, excessive sweating, and even migraines.

What are the benefits of using Botox?

Botox can be used in facial wrinkles and is most often used in the following areas.

  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles: Above the eyebrow lines that stretch across the forehead
  • Eye wrinkles: The "crow's feet" that gather at the corners of the eyes when you smile or laugh
  • 11 lines: Two vertical lines between your brows

The professionals at Forever Young Aesthetics take every care explaining how Botox injections provide you with quick and painless treatments.

Why do wrinkles develop?

Wrinkles develop for several reasons. They're a result of aging, as the skin becomes less elastic over the years. When skin is less elastic, it's less able to snap back into place after you make expressions like frowns or squints. Sun exposure can also contribute to wrinkles, especially when it comes to fine lines. Botox is especially good at treating wrinkles that occur because of both age and sun exposure.

How much Botox will you need?

This is completely dependent upon the individual and their unique skin. Botox is administered in units. Each area requires a certain amount to properly freeze the muscles being treated. Whether your wrinkles and lines are just starting to emerge, are quite minor, or deeply ingrained, Botox can help.

How long does Botox last?

Botox lasts for three to four months in most patients. To maximize the lifespan of Botox, avoid sun exposure and use a high-quality skin care line like Alastin® or SkinMedica®. Buy these products easily online on the Forever Young Aesthetics website!

How does Botox combine with other procedures?

Botox combines quite well with other noninvasive cosmetic treatments and procedures. In fact, many Forever Young patients combine dermal filler treatments like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® with Botox treatments. Botox is also frequently combined with facials or treatments like the GLOW Facial. Though Botox is great at erasing wrinkles, it doesn't do anything to change the texture, the tone, or the overall luminosity of the skin. Fortunately, many of the state-of-the-art treatments at Forever Young Aesthetics can do exactly that.
