What Are the Benefits of Botox®?

Botox® is undoubtedly a leading cosmetic treatment. It is used to address fine lines and wrinkles and has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of forehead lines. Botox® injections offer instant results for patients seeking effective anti-aging treatment.

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that differs from dermal fillers. Botox® works by preventing specific facial muscles from moving which causes wrinkles and forehead lines to become prominent.

Each Botox® injection contains a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA. The toxin works by blocking specific chemical signals from the nerves that cause muscles to contract. Relaxing certain facial muscles ensures patients that have Botox® injections have a more rested and youthful look.

People often opt for Botox® injections as part of other cosmetic treatments to counteract the effects of the aging process. They’re also ideal for individuals that experience premature aging effects, perhaps due to genetic issues or overexposure to the sun.

Benefits of Botox®

Each year, millions of Americans enjoy the many benefits that Botox® has to offer. The following are some of the top reasons why Botox® has become such a popular cosmetic treatment in the past three decades:

Botox® Treatments Are Quick and Effective

One of the striking facts about Botox® treatments is how they are quick to administer and offer instant, effective results. A treatment provided by Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead can take as little as ten minutes to complete.

There’s No Downtime With Botox®

After your Botox® treatment session, you can continue with the rest of your day. Dr. Maltais recommends avoiding going to the gym for 48 hours for the Botox® injection to have optimal effects. That’s because excessive body temperatures can cause Botox® to spread.

Botox® Offers Long-Lasting Results

Clients that have Botox® injections at Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead will enjoy long-lasting results.

Each Botox® treatment session lasts up to four months; Dr. Maltais recommends three to four treatments each year to maintain the benefits of Botox®.

Am I a Candidate for Botox®?

If you are a physically healthy adult that wishes to tackle wrinkles and forehead lines effectively, you could be a good candidate for Botox®. You may also be perfect for the treatment if you don’t want to opt for surgical treatments like facelifts.

You should avoid getting Botox® injections if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of certain neuromuscular diseases.

Botox® is also not recommended for people with existing weaknesses in targeted muscles like drooping eyelids, deep scarring, and thick facial skin. Dr. Maltais and her team will conduct a thorough examination of the treatment areas during your initial consultation to confirm your suitability.
