BOTOX is a safe, FDA-approved medication that blocks nerve signals to your facial muscles. When your muscles relax, wrinkles and creases that appear permanent are reduced, so your face returns to a more neutral resting expression. BOTOX can also relax tight neck bands, and it is sometimes used to help balance facial asymmetry.
BOTOX is best for wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle contractions. The most common areas for BOTOX include:
BOTOX can also be used to relax muscles around your mouth, allowing your lips to appear fuller.
The team at Eternal Hair and Esthetics has the training and experience to achieve subtle results that allow your face to look natural when moving and expressing emotion.
Fine lines or wrinkles that are caused by facial aging, rather than by muscle contraction, such as creases along the sides of your mouth, might not be the best candidates for BOTOX. Creases and fine lines that occur as facial tissue weakens are often best treated with dermal fillers, which are also available at Eternal Hair and Esthetic. During your consultation, your specialist will discuss all of your options so you can choose the treatment that’s best for you.
Like most injections, you might feel some mild discomfort; many people describe this as a pinching sensation. BOTOX injections don’t take a lot of time to administer so you won’t be uncomfortable for long.
If you are particularly sensitive, your specialist may choose to apply a topical anesthetic cream before your treatment.
The number of injections depends on your individual skin needs. The specialist will discuss your goals during your consultation to determine a treatment plan. In general, most facial areas require 3-5 injections for optimal results.
You’ll notice an improvement in the treated area in about 24-48 hours. It can take a few weeks for your full results to be visible. In most cases, results last around four months.
