BOTOX® continues to be one of the most popular nonsurgical treatments among both doctors and patients because of its dependable results for treating fine lines, excessive sweating, and even migraines.
What are the benefits of using BOTOX®?
BOTOX® can be used in facial wrinkles and is most often used in the following areas.
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles: Above the eyebrow lines that stretch across the forehead
- Eye wrinkles: The “crow’s feet” that gather at the corners of the eyes when you smile or laugh
- 11 lines: Two vertical lines between your brows
Wrinkles develop for several reasons. They’re a result of aging, as the skin becomes less elastic over the years. When skin is less elastic, it’s less able to snap back into place after you make expressions like frowning or squinting. Sun exposure can also contribute to wrinkles, especially when it comes to fine lines. BOTOX® is especially good at treating wrinkles that occur because of both age and sun exposure.
How much BOTOX® will you need?
This is completely dependent upon the individual and their unique skin. BOTOX® is administered in units. Each area requires a certain amount to properly relax the muscles being treated. Most patients need around 20 units per treatment area, but this does vary according to the depth of the wrinkles. Whether your wrinkles and lines are just starting to emerge, are quite minor, or deeply ingrained, BOTOX® can help.
How long does BOTOX® last?
BOTOX® lasts for three to four months in most patients. To maximize the lifespan of BOTOX®, avoid sun exposure and use a high-quality skin care line such as SkinMedica and keep up with your regularly scheduled appointments to keep the muscle relaxed.
How does BOTOX® combine with other noninvasive cosmetic treatments and procedures?
BOTOX® combines quite well with other noninvasive cosmetic treatments and procedures. In fact, many LeJeune Aesthetic Centers patients combine dermal filler treatments like JUVÉDERM® and Microneedling with BOTOX® treatments. BOTOX® is also frequently combined with facials or treatments like the Hydro Luxx facial. Though BOTOX® is great at erasing wrinkles, it doesn’t do anything to change the texture, the tone, or the overall glow of the skin. Fortunately, we have many other procedures that can do exactly that.
