Aging is one of the things we can’t escape. Eventually, wrinkles and fine lines catch up on us. Your skin may not have the elasticity that it used to. Moisturizers and sunscreen can only help so far and no further. While they can delay the effects of aging, they cannot stop it altogether.
Thankfully. There is a way the reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox can smooth your skin and restore that youthful glow. Botox can help to ease the lines between your brows, on your forehead, and near the corner of your eyes. At Cyrus Advanced Institute in El Paso, TX, we can administer your Botox injections. The treatment will be supervised by our skilled expert to give you the best cosmetic experience.
What Is Botox?
Botox is the oldest and most commonly used injectable on the market. It is a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes the muscles in your face which lead to dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. It is a toxin that prevents certain muscle contractions. Your facial muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles respond favorably to the Botox toxin. These repeated muscle movements, like forehead lines, for example, can be smoothed out by Botox by preventing the muscles from contracting.
Botox is not only for patients who already have wrinkles but can also be used to prevent muscle contractions from causing wrinkles in the future. Younger patients are welcome to start their Botox treatments earlier to prolong their smooth skin. Botox does not only treat wrinkles and upper facial lines but can smooth several other lines, like:
- Lip lines
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Neck bands
- Reshape and enlarge upper lip
The Benefits of Botox Treatments
There are many advantages to using Botox as your preferred injectable. While these are others on the market, Botox stands out among its competitors for providing consistently great results. Here are 7 benefits of using Botox injections:
1. The Procedure is Quick
Depending on the area being treated, Botox treatments can be administered in under 30 minutes. This short procedure is enough to smooth out your wrinkles. If you have a busy schedule, you don’t have to worry about a Botox treatment taking up too much time.
2. Several Uses
While some injectables that are similar to Botox are only FDA-approved for a limited number of facial lines, Botox can be used in several places on your face and neck. All wrinkles or facial lines can be smoothed out by the Botox injection.
3. Durable Results
Botox treatment results can last 4-6 months before a touch-up session is needed. Some patients experience immediate results after the first session and continue to see more noticeable results a few days after the treatment.
4. Can Be a Preventative Treatment
Botox is not only effective at treating pre-existing wrinkles and facial lines, but you can use it to prevent them. Botox treatments can become a regular part of your skincare routine to slow down the effects of aging.
5. Can Be Used with Other Treatments
Wrinkles and fine lines are not the only skin conditions you want to be treated. There may be other treatments you want to use to combat different issues. For instance, Botox can be used alongside dermal fillers which treat hollowed areas on your face. You can also use Botox while using a treatment to ease acne scars or facial pigmentations.
6. There is No Downtime
Since Botox treatments are non-surgical, no downtime is required. It is minimally invasive and does not require an extended recovery time. The quick procedure is over in minutes, so you can return to your regular daily activities right away. This is ideal if you don’t want the long recovery times that come with a surgical facelift.
7. The Results Look Natural
Contrary to popular belief, Botox treatments have natural-looking results. As long as it is done correctly and the right dosages are admitted, patients won’t have a face without an expression. We can provide quality Botox treatments that will smooth out your skin without making you look unnatural.
