BOTOX® is one of the most widely known cosmetic treatments. Today, it is used around the world by men and women alike who are looking for ways to look younger and see smoother, more uplifted skin once again. Some even use it to treat other issues, such as migraines. Before you begin this treatment, you may ask yourself several questions, such as how the treatment works, how long each treatment will last and if there are any activities that you will need to avoid. However, one of your most pressing questions will be how many BOTOX® injections you will need to look your best. Here are three considerations you will need to make as you consider the answer to this question.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment for the reduction of dynamic wrinkles at many points across the face and neck. It is a purified protein solution administered via injection into strategic sites of concern, most often between the eyes (frown/glabellar lines), outside the eyes (crow’s feet), on the forehead, and at certain places on the neck. This product works by temporarily blocking nerve signals from reaching particular facial muscles. When these muscles do not receive nerve signals, they do not contract and cause unwanted creases in the facial skin.
Are You Looking for Long-Term Results?
The results of a treatment session become evident after three to five days and tend to last between three and six months. If you do stop receiving BOTOX® injections after this point, you will see your expression lines come back gradually. We can sit down with you and structure a treatment plan that works to accommodate your personal needs and goals.
