Our unique facial expressions are the result of muscles contracting under the skin. Over time, permanent lines develop from these repeated contractions, especially around the eyes and on the forehead. These lines can leave you looking tired or angry, even when you are not.
Botox® is medically derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A and works by blocking the release of chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract. This allows the overlying skin to relax and the wrinkles/lines are less noticeable.
Botox® is ideal for:
- Minimizing wrinkles across the forehead
- Eliminating soft lines around the eyes
- Smoothing out frown lines between the eyebrows
- Improving nasal squint lines
The Botox® Process
We begin with a consultation, discussing the areas you would like to see improved. The injections themselves are quick and done with a fine needle so that pain is minimal. Results are apparent after 5-10 days, reaching a maximum effect after 2 weeks.
While the treatment is effective, it is not permanent. Regular treatment is needed to maintain the results, usually every 3-6 months. If you get regular injections, the muscles will “forget” to contract and you will stop making the expressive facial movements and further protect your skin from wrinkling.
Many women are fearful of looking overdone, or like a deer in headlights. This is a reasonable concern, as we have all seen movie stars (or possibly even friends) who look unnatural. The goal with each client is for her to look her best at her age.
