How Does It Work?
Wrinkles occur due to small muscle contractions on different areas of the face. Botox treatment temporarily paralyzes those muscles by disconnecting them from their signaling nerves. This relaxes and softens wrinkles, improving your facial appearance. This treatment is most effective on the wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead (frown lines), and between the eyebrows.
Who is the Candidate?
According to top aestheticians, cosmetic surgeons, and dermatologists around the world, a good candidate for Botox treatment for wrinkles is:
- 18 years or older
- Overall healthy
- Not pregnant or nursing
In addition to that, you must have realistic expectations of the procedure.
How is Botox Performed to Remove Wrinkles?
Botox treatment is an outpatient procedure during which a dermatologist or aesthetician administers botulinum toxin under the skin using thin needles. They administer several injections, each with a tiny amount of Botox solution, into the overactive muscles that cause wrinkles. The purpose of this treatment is to relax those muscles in order to smooth the outermost skin layer, diminishing wrinkles.
The Botox procedure for wrinkles generally takes only a few minutes. The exact duration of this procedure will depend on the treatment area and the wrinkles’ prominence.
Is the treatment painful?
Botox treatment is typically provided on the skin area numbed with a topical anesthetic. This makes the procedure virtually painless. Even if the numbing solution is not applied, the pain from thin needles is minimal, resembling the sensation of a little pinch.
What outcomes should be expected?
You will notice the initial reduction in your wrinkles 3-4 days after Botox injections. The complete results are generally visible in two weeks, with your skin appearing smoother, plumper, and more youthful.
Are there any side effects of Botox treatment for wrinkles?
Botox is a safe treatment for reducing wrinkles when provided by an experienced practitioner. Some side effects may, however, occur in some cases, such as:
- Swelling and discomfort around the injection site
- Cockeyed eyebrows or droopiness of the eyelids
- Drooling or crooked smile
How long do the results last?
On average, you may have wrinkle-free skin for 3-4 months after Botox. And indeed, there will be patients who will retain desired results for longer and shorter durations.
Is Botox only for wrinkles?
While Botox is most famous for its anti-wrinkle and anti-aging effects, it can help resolve various medical problems, such as:
- Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis
- Neck spasms
- An overactive bladder
- Lazy eye
Is it a safe treatment?
Botox has been used to treat wrinkles for about 15 years and is found safe for both long and short-term use. For this reason, it is trusted by both candidates and cosmeticians.
How often do you get Botox for wrinkles?
You may need to get this treatment every three to four months because this is when the results of the previous treatment start to diminish.
How many units of Botox do you need for one wrinkle?
Generally, ten units are needed to treat forehead wrinkles, and 25 to 50 units may be required for a complete restorative treatment.
