BOTOX® is fast becoming the most popular cosmetic treatment among consumers seeking to turn back the hands of time without the need for invasive and high-risk surgeries. This is an FDA-approved injectable that has the ability to temporarily relax key muscles in the facial structure. These muscles are called expressive muscles and they are responsible for both facial expressions and the development of dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX® relaxes expressive muscles, which has a smoothing effect on the surface skin.

The world is increasingly appearance-conscious. As a result, maintaining youthful good looks and optimum confidence is often essential for maintaining a high level of marketability in both the social and professional arenas.

In fact, these treatments are short and easy enough to have performed right after you get off work or even during your lunch break.

In short, this is currently the fastest and easiest way to rejuvenate your looks and ensure that you’re always making positive first impressions.
What to Expect After Your BOTOX® Treatment
While you may see an immediate decrease in fine lines and wrinkles across your visage, you can look forward to further improvements over the next several days. As nerve signals to the expressive muscles are effectively treated, tension in the treated areas will lessen and the surface skin will smooth out.
Is BOTOX® the Right Treatment for You?
BOTOX® is designed to minimize or even eliminate dynamic wrinkles around the lips and eyes and across the brow. It is not intended to treat severe facial sagging, deep creases and hollows or other signs of age-related volume loss. During your consultation at RidgeView Dermatology, our team will assess the location, nature and severity of your cosmetic concerns. It’s important to note that BOTOX® can be safely paired with other non-invasive cosmetic treatments and products, such as dermal fillers, so that both dynamic wrinkles and volume loss are addressed.
BOTOX® treatments can be repeated every four to six months for ongoing benefits. There is no downtime and no special requirements for aftercare. If you’re looking for a safe, effective and reliable way to create a more youthful-looking visage, BOTOX® could be right for you.
