BOTOX® is a simple cosmetic treatment for skin wrinkling and smile lines. When we make certain facial expressions, the muscles in our cheeks, jaws, and forehead pull or relax the skin, and this makes set and non-set wrinkles more apparent.
BOTOX® is an injectable fluid that partially relaxes the muscles in the face by interrupting signals sent from the brain to the nerves that lie just beneath the skin. It is not a filler treatment, nor does it involve plumping or skin ablation.
At New Beauty Wellness, we have found this to be the most effective non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the smoothing of facial skin, and the results are long-lasting.
Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment
Some of the popular skin resurfacing treatments are rather harsh in nature because they involve the stripping away of the upper dermal layers.
Chemical peels encourage the growth of healthier skin but are ineffective on those individuals who have pronounced discoloration. On the other hand, BOTOX® allows the skin to stay firm without the need for any sort of tissue repositioning or resurfacing.
BOTOX® trains the muscles to stay relaxed. Over the course of several months following the injection treatment, the muscles become used to being relaxed and non-contracted. Subsequent injection treatments require less and less of the BOTOX® fluid.
A Simple Cosmetic Treatment Procedure
When we consult with our clients, we look at their faces when they smile or frown. We notice where the crease lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet appear.
These are suitable injection sites. The amount of BOTOX® required for the treatment depends on the severity of the wrinkles that form and their location.
The injections are made using an ultra-thin needle. The entire procedure can be performed during lunch break.
The face may feel a bit numb for several hours, but sensation in the facial skin soon returns. It takes a few days for the cosmetic agent to take full effect.
The ability to smile, frown, or make other expressions is not hampered in the slightest. The effect can last for up to six months. The procedure is completely repeatable at regular intervals.
