Botulinum toxin (Type A), also known as Botox® Cosmetic, is a natural, purified protein that’s commonly used to smooth out fine lines and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles.
Botox® is a neurotoxin, meaning it works by blocking the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to contract, leaving your skin looking naturally smooth.
Using small doses and tiny needles, Botox® is injected at specific points in your facial anatomy to relax facial muscles and help decrease the appearance of wrinkles. Other cosmetic uses include correcting facial asymmetry and relaxing tight neck bands.
Botox® is most effective for treating dynamic wrinkles, or the kind of lines that are caused by repeated facial muscle patterns and everyday facial expressions. These wrinkles include:
Although Botox can have a visible effect on the finer lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage, genetics, and smoking, these so-called static wrinkles tend to be more responsive to laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most effective cosmetic tools for temporary wrinkle reduction.
The treatment itself can usually be performed on the same day as your initial consultation and evaluation. After discussing your goals, a team member at The Lip Bunny Beauty will prepare the injection and let you know what you can expect during the quick procedure. Botox injections are virtually painless.
The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes, and most patients get the results they’re looking for by having several small injections throughout the treatment area.
Although you may experience minor swelling and redness afterward, any side effects are mild and short-lived.
Botox® is a popular aesthetic treatment because it delivers immediate results: most patients begin to see smoother skin within 24-48 hours. It also carries few risks or side effects and requires little to no recovery time, meaning you can return to your normal routine immediately afterward.
Botox® results aren’t permanent, but they do last an average of three to six months. If you want to maintain your new, younger-looking skin for longer, all you have to do is come in for a Botox® boost.
