Just because wrinkles are a normal part of aging doesn’t mean you need to live with them. Dr. Bonnie Wang at Re3 Healing Aesthetics and Wellness in Sarasota, Florida offers Botox injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and provide a younger-looking appearance. Contact the practice today or book an appointment online to take the first step toward wrinkle-free skin.
Botox uses injections of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin, to disrupt signals between the nerves and muscles in the face. This process helps keep the small muscles in the face relaxed, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States, used by millions of Americans every year. Though the word neurotoxin sounds scary, Botox is very safe and is FDA-approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead (frown lines), around the eyes (crow’s feet), as well as fine lines around your lips. Though your muscles move less, you’ll still maintain a natural appearance and expressions.
In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles, Botox can also be used to prevent wrinkle formation. Many people in their 20s or 30s use Botox injections to keep their faces relaxed and to prevent wrinkles and folds from developing as they age.
Botox treatment is fast and has no downtime. During your appointment, a trained aesthetician will carefully inject small amounts of Botox into several areas in your forehead or around your eyes. The needle used is very small, helping you feel comfortable during treatment.
The entire treatment takes just 30 minutes or less. While some patients experience redness or bruising after treatment, these side effects are rare and go away quickly. You have no restrictions after treatment and can return to work and play immediately. Many patients even receive Botox on their lunch breaks.
You will begin to see smoother-looking skin from Botox in about seven days as the treatment takes effect. Your results should last for up to three months and can be maintained with regular appointments. Many patients begin to see even longer-lasting results after multiple treatments.
For even greater results, Botox can be combined with other noninvasive treatments like dermal fillers or microneedling. Together, these treatments can lead to smoother, younger-looking skin.
