Are the signs of aging on your face more visible now? Are you tired of being constantly told that you look exhausted or angry even if you’re not? Wrinkles, deep furrows, fine lines, and creases can alter your facial appearance. They can even contribute to creating a fixed sad, tired, or angry facial expression, even though you’re feeling none of those.
Fortunately, many treatments can reverse the signs of aging. One treatment option are Botox® injections. It’s a popular facial treatment specially designed to erase wrinkles and rejuvenate a tired-looking face. Many celebrities swear by this cosmetic procedure, so you’re probably wondering if it’s also right for you.
Well, let’s find out if this cosmetic procedure is beneficial for you in the long run. But first, let’s cover the basics:
Botox® is an injectable aesthetic treatment made from botulinum toxin. It works by blocking the transmission signals originating from the nerves to the muscles. This leads to a mild paralysis, inhibiting the muscles from contracting. As a result, facial wrinkles soften and relax, making the lines and creases appear less noticeable.
Botox® Results Duration
Given the formulation of Botox®, this anti-aging treatment is not permanent. The longevity, however, varies from one person to another. Three factors affect the duration of Botox® results, and these are:
This aesthetic injection is diluted with water for safe use regardless of where it is injected. If excess water is used or the incorrect units of Botox® are injected, the longevity of the results is shortened. Dr. Clinton knows and understands the impact of using the incorrect dosage, which is why he will evaluate your case carefully to come up with an appropriate treatment plan.
The face has several different muscles. Each of them varies in strengths, depending on their placement. Each of the muscle areas needs different dosages. This explains why it’s essential to use the right dosage for each area. Thankfully, Dr. Clinton is well-trained in the facial anatomy enough to recommend the appropriate dosage for certain areas to achieve your desired result.
Aesthetic skills and experience also play a role in the favorable results of your Botox® injections. The results can last longer if the injection is performed by a plastic surgeon who is knowledgeable with facial anatomy, including the muscles in the face. Dr. Clinton’s track record of success speaks for his wealth of experience in performing this cosmetic procedure, giving you the assurance that you’re in good hands.
Typically, the results of Botox® injections can last for three to four months. However, as you continue to use Botox®, the duration of the results will lengthen. With frequent use, the results can last up to 12 months.
