BOTOX®, as well as the similar products known as Dysport® and XEOMIN®, are remarkably effective at eliminating facial wrinkles. All three products are derived from the same main ingredient. In addition to its cosmetic uses, BOTOX® has been used to treat other issues as well. If you’re curious about BOTOX® in Bluffton, SC, call Lux: A Medical Spa to learn more.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is not injected into the skin, but rather into the muscles directly beneath it. The injections cause these muscles to relax, which, in turn, eliminates wrinkles in the skin above. The injections are most effective at treating wrinkles in the upper third of the face, including lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. However, they can also effectively treat other common facial wrinkles. It all depends on the unique situation.
What Can I Expect from a Treatment?
BOTOX® procedures are relatively fast and convenient. Plus, there’s virtually no recovery time required. The results from the injections are not immediate; wrinkles will begin to smooth out in the days after treatment, with maximum effects seen after approximately two weeks or so. The effects should last for multiple months at a time, at which point the treatment can be repeated if desired.
