Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Non-Surgical Botox Treatments
Aging is an inevitable process. When it kicks in, your youthful-looking skin goes away. Thankfully, safe and non-surgical ways exist to preserve your youthfulness. Botox injections from Eagle Family Dental in Arlington, Washington, can combat fine lines and wrinkles to rejuvenate your skin. Once injected into the facial muscles, Botox reduces involuntary contractions to turn back the clock on aging.
How Botox works
Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is technically a diluted neurotoxin administered in therapeutic doses to treat wrinkles. Botox in itself doesn’t eliminate wrinkles. Instead, it minimizes the muscle activity of the affected area by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. When muscle contractions reduce, fine lines and wrinkles fade away gradually.
Medical practitioners have been using Botox injections to treat migraines and TMJ disorders. However, today Botox has gained a foothold in cosmetics. We can use Botox to address the below facial imperfections.
- Forehead wrinkles
- Deep furrows and eyebrow lines
- Smile lines
- Crow’s feet that form around the corners of the eyes
What to expect from Botox treatments
Botox treatment is an outpatient procedure that takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. The treatment involves using micro-thin needles to inject the Botox product into your facial muscles. The number of injections depends on the extent of wrinkles and other factors.
You can resume your everyday activities after Botox injections. However, avoid rubbing the injected areas to prevent the Botox product from leaking into unwanted areas. Your face may appear swollen and bruised after treatment, but this shouldn’t worry you as it will fade after a few days.
Botox injections work “magic” for your face. After 4-6 days of treatment, expect tighter and smoother skin with reduced wrinkles and fine lines. However, Botox results don’t last forever. After every 3-4 months, you need retreatment to maintain youthful results.
