Three Common Areas on the Face to Treat With BOTOX®
They say that the hands of time stop for no one, but you can slow down the aging appearance on your face with BOTOX injections. The wrinkle smoother is commonly used to target three main areas of the face that start to show lines first: the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the outer corners of the eyes. Yes, BOTOX can effectively smooth horizontal forehead lines, ease your frown lines and soften Crow's feet. In fact, continued use of BOTOX injectables can even help prevent wrinkles from forming so you can hold on to your youthful appearance and keep people guessing about your true age.
Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA offers injectables such as BOTOX, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® to smooth wrinkles, restore facial fullness, prevent sagging, and prevent fine lines from developing. We encourage you to contact the team at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA to learn more.
All about BOTOX
Your face will start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as a result of natural aging and repetitive facial muscle contractions that occur when you smile or frown. Over time, your body also slows its production of collagen and elastin, which makes the skin appear less plump and elastic. BOTOX helps smooth away unwanted wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming. It can effectively give you a more youthful appearance and help you maintain your skin’s smoothness for longer.
BOTOX injections are minimally invasive and are performed as a quick, outpatient treatment. Dr. Olson will inject the BOTOX formula into the brow and upper face using a very fine needle. The entire procedure takes only 5 – 10 minutes to carry out. Most patients report only mild discomfort that feels similar to a slight pinch.
Following your BOTOX injections, you can return to your normal daily activities. In fact, many patients opt to undergo BOTOX injections on their lunch breaks because the procedure is so quick and easy.
Typically, you should abstain from touching your face for the first 24 hours after BOTOX injections to ensure that the solution settles and takes effect. Rubbing the face can move the BOTOX formula around beneath the skin and could impact its effectiveness. Also, you should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 – 48 hours.
Following the administration of BOTOX, you might notice slight swelling or bruising, which is perfectly normal. It will take from 2 – 3 days before you start to notice fine lines and wrinkles diminishing.
BOTOX injections last up to four months (in some patients, they can last from 6 – 9 months) and provide natural-looking results. To maintain your appearance, Dr. Olson and his team at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA suggest undergoing the injections every four months. The team will work closely with you to develop a personalized plan that will help meet your particular needs and goals.
