Fine lines and wrinkles don’t have to be a part of your story anymore! Thanks to some time-tested injectable treatments, you can essentially reclaim a youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of our favorite anti-aging “go-tos” for producing beautiful results for our clients in West Knoxville and the surrounding area. With such consistent results time and time again, it’s no wonder why BOTOX claims the fame of being the most popular neurotoxin in America.
How does BOTOX work to smooth wrinkles?
FDA-approved BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) tackles the signs of aging by essentially blocking the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to form from repeated facial expressions. When injected into the targeted area of the skin where wrinkles are present, BOTOX binds to certain nerve endings in the muscles to temporarily stop them from contracting and causing the skin to fold and crease. The beautiful results are temporarily reduced or eliminated forehead creases, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles for up to four months.
Am I a candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX can be a great option for adults in generally good health who are concerned with moderate to severe wrinkles. Men and women alike choose BOTOX to nix unwanted wrinkles in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, but even younger people in their 20s and 30s are turning to injections to ward off wrinkles before they even start. We’ll talk about your personal beauty goals and make sure BOTOX is your best bet at your consultation.
What are the most common areas treated with BOTOX?
BOTOX can be used on many areas where wrinkles form. The most common of these include:
- Forehead lines
- Glabellar lines (aka frown lines between the eyebrows)
- Lines around and on the nose
- Smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Chin dimples
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Much more
Will I need any downtime after BOTOX injections?
Nope. You won’t need any downtime after your BOTOX treatment. We’ll just recommend that you not lie down for at least four hours after your injections and don’t exercise for 24 hours. That’s so the product doesn’t migrate from where it’s injected. So feel free to skip the gym on us the day of your treatment. We won’t tell.
When will the results from BOTOX injections be visible?
A lot of people start noticing fine lines and wrinkles being softened within the first 24 to 48 hours, but the general rule of thumb is that full results shine through at around the 30-day mark.
How long can I expect the results from BOTOX injections to last?
Though individual results will vary, most people can expect their results from BOTOX injections to last for about three to four months. And don’t worry…you can choose additional injections after that time to maintain that baby-smooth look. Factors that play into how long your individual results last include your age, lifestyle, and unique skin structure. We’ll go over everything you can expect at your consultation in our beautiful Farragut office.
