Botox Remains a Top Choice for Treating Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles can be a thing of the past with the help of Botox when injected by an experienced dermatologist. A dermatologist is one of the best medical providers to choose when looking to have Botox injected because in addition to being a medical professional, they are also trained to have an artistic eye. Placement and technique of Botox is essential for beautiful, natural looking results.
Botox lasts, on average, around four months. The exact length of time that Botox lasts may vary from person to person. Generally, it will need to be injected again somewhere between three and four months’ time. Since Botox works by restricting muscles from moving and flexing within the face, the stronger your muscles are in those areas, the sooner it will be likely to wear off.
For Botox to work beautifully and effectively, it requires precise placement when being injected. Different injection techniques can yield different results, such as slightly lifting certain areas of the face.
The number of units injected will help to provide the desired result. Your medical professional will speak to you regarding the number of units he or she will be injecting. This amount will also have some bearing on how long your results last after the injection. Botox requires no downtime, so you can schedule a procedure on your lunch break if you wish. Full results may take up to a week to become present, so it requires a bit of patience. Within a week, the muscle where Botox was injected will become temporarily paralyzed and wrinkles will become less apparent.
Some individuals who use Botox may find that after a few injections, their wrinkles become less and less apparent as the Botox wears off. This allows them to go even longer between injections. Of course, it is important to remember that this varies between individuals. However, many find the results of Botox to be very satisfying and that it gives them the youthful, refreshed look they were seeking.
