The onset of facial wrinkles might be inevitable, but it’s not irreversible. If you don’t like the appearance of frown lines and forehead lines when you look at the mirror, BOTOX® can restore your youthful looks. The Royal Medspa provides highly personalized BOTOX® in Nebraska City to suppress your facial wrinkles, making you look (and feel) young and beautiful.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator made of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A. BOTOX® has been used in a medical capacity for decades, but over the past two decades, it has gained prominence as a cosmetic treatment. BOTOX® injections can suppress or soften the appearance of expression lines on your face, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
What does BOTOX® treat?
Cosmetic BOTOX® primarily treats the dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines, that appear on your face as you grow older. It’s FDA-approved for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows (also known as glabellar lines), and the crow’s feet around the eyes. However, it can also correct vertical lip lines, chin creases, and other facial wrinkles.
How does BOTOX® work?
Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing and smiling. When you want to convey emotions, your brain sends the appropriate signals via the nerve endings into your facial muscles, making them contract and produce expression lines, such as frown lines.
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that blocks communication between specific nerve endings and muscles. When injected carefully into targeted facial muscles, our BOTOX® in Nebraska City can prevent their contraction, which, in turn, minimizes the appearance of expression lines. The results last for 3 to 5 months, following which you need another treatment.
What happens after
the BOTOX® treatment?
After your BOTOX® in Nebraska City, you may experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, itching, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days. But you can resume your daily activities and work immediately as BOTOX® is a safe outpatient procedure with minimal side effects and negligible risk of complications. You should, however, avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day.
When will I see the
results of BOTOX®?
BOTOX® doesn’t produce instant results because the neurotoxin takes some time to block communications between nerve endings and facial muscles. The results may start appearing after 3 days, with gradual improvements for 2 weeks. You can appreciate the final results of BOTOX® after approximately 2 weeks — your facial skin will look smoother and younger.
How long do the
BOTOX® results last?
The BOTOX® results will gradually start fading away after 3 or 4 months. Your facial wrinkles will gradually become more prominent, and the last remains of BOTOX® will dissipate completely within 5 months. You can opt for maintenance treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain the results all year long. Most patients opt for around 3 BOTOX® injections per year.
