You’ve most likely heard of Botox before. However, you may not know much about this anti-aging treatment, which is one of the most popular and effective cosmetic injectables on the market. Here at Cyrus Advanced Institute in El Paso, Texas, we offer this cosmetic injectable treatment to our patients who have concerns about the appearance of their skin. Once you try this treatment, you’ll never again let wrinkles or age define your beauty.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable treatment that is technically a neuromodulator. Its primary purpose is to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face that form as part of the natural aging process. The reason these wrinkles form is due to decreased elasticity as part of the aging process.
Essentially, your skin just won’t have the bounce and elasticity that it used to have, and then fine lines and dynamic wrinkles will form on your face, making you look much older than you actually are. Once you age, all those repetitive facial expressions add up, which is what causes those deep wrinkles to form. That’s why this cosmetic injectable is such an effective option: it smooths away those wrinkles and makes your skin look soft, smooth, and youthful.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Simply put, this treatment relaxes the muscles in your face that create expressions like frowning, smiling, laughing, furrowing your brow, etc. During the treatment process, this neuromodulator is administered via injection into the targeted area, affecting the communication between your nerve signals and the brain. It disrupts that communication route, which causes the muscles to relax and smooth away any wrinkles.
What Does Botox Treat?
This treatment is incredibly versatile and completely safe. In fact, it’s FDA-approved to effectively treat the signs of the aging process in different areas of the face. Many times, our patients have frown lines between their eyebrows, which can form very deep wrinkles in the face or even look like the number “11.”
Not only do these wrinkles make you look older than you actually are, they can also make you look upset, angry, or even tired. Once it’s injected into those treatment areas, it relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles and lines to provide you with smooth skin between the eyebrows or any other treatment area on your face.
No matter how minor or severe your forehead wrinkles are, this treatment can help you get rid of them. Forehead lines are usually the most prominent and can be very noticeable. This can take a toll on your self-confidence and make you look older. You can use this treatment to eliminate those forehead wrinkles, so your face looks youthful and smooth again.
Crow’s Feet and Eye Wrinkles
Everybody knows about crow’s feet—they’re the wrinkles and lines that form around your eyes as you age. Your eye muscles are what form crow’s feet, which develop after years of repetitive facial expressions like smiling, laughing, and squinting. Botox can be used to treat eye wrinkles, and will effectively remove wrinkles and fine lines from the outer corner of your eyes, so you look and feel like a better version of yourself.
Other Cosmetic Treatments
If you want to smooth away wrinkles in other areas of your face, our skilled and experienced injectors can help you achieve your skin aesthetic goals. Not everybody is skilled enough to handle these types of treatments, but you can be sure you’ll get the best here at Cyrus Advanced Institute. We’re led by Dr. Adolfo Benitez, an expert dermatologist that has the talent and expertise to handle any type of Botox treatments you need.
Treat Certain Medical Conditions
This cosmetic injectable can also be used for other medical conditions. Some of these conditions include:
- TMJ (lockjaw)
- Cervical dystonia
- Amblyopia (lazy eye)
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Chronic pain relief
In fact, this treatment has helped millions of people get symptom relief for various medical conditions, so they can get back to the activities and lifestyle they love.
What Can You Expect During a Treatment Session?
You don’t have to follow a long list of instructions to prepare for this Botox treatment. First, you can schedule your appointment at the time that’s most convenient for you. A treatment session only takes 10 or 20 minutes, so even if you have a busy lifestyle, you can find the time to add a session to your anti-aging skincare routine. After your initial consultation, we will give you a few pre-treatment instructions so that you’re prepared for your session.
The Injection Process
The treatment process is actually very fast. First, we’ll clean and sanitize your skin and then administer the treatment via injection into the targeted areas on your face. If you want, we will apply a topical numbing agent so you can feel completely comfortable and have a pain-free session. We also use a micro-fine needle, which helps the process feel much more comfortable.
One of the best parts of this treatment is that there is no downtime required at all. That’s one reason why this cosmetic injectable is so popular for both men and women. It offers a way to combat the aging process while keeping your face looking smooth, wrinkle-free, and youthful.
To maintain good results, you need to avoid alcohol consumption and strenuous exercise for about 24 hours after a treatment session. You should also avoid saunas, hot tubs, heat rooms, and steam rooms for a full 24 hours post-treatment.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect?
Another reason why this treatment is so popular is the dramatic results it produces. After your first series of treatments, you will see a dramatic difference in the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles about three or four days after your treatment session. However, you won’t see the final results until about a week after your session, since the ingredients need a bit of time to relax your muscles to get rid of those lines and wrinkles in the treatment area.
How To Maintain Your Results
If you want to maintain your results, simply schedule a follow-up appointment anywhere from three to six months after your session. However, it depends on how fast your body metabolizes the ingredients. When you start feeling the effects of your treatment wear off, simply schedule a new appointment and enjoy the effects once more.
