Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for facial wrinkles. Botox is made from purified botulinum toxin protein, which can smooth away and prevent fine lines and wrinkles when injected properly. The Botox solution is injected with fine needles, directly into the desired treatment areas. There are no incisions and bleeding is minimal or non-existent.
Botox stops wrinkles by causing a controlled paralysis. When the muscles that cause the formation of wrinkles are partially frozen, they're unable to keep reinforcing those wrinkles. It's harder for patients to keep making those negative expressions like deep frowns, but it's still possible to move the face normally.
Botox can be used in the crow's feet next to the eyes, the vertical lines between the eyebrows, and the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead. Botox can also be used to provide a small lift to a drooping mouth or the lines that can develop around the neck as a person ages.
In most patients, Botox lasts for 3-4 months. However, people who have Botox on a regular basis may eventually be able to decrease treatment frequency to a couple of times a year once the product is fully integrated into the body.
No, Botox is different than a dermal filler. Botox can relax and prevent wrinkles, but it doesn't give the face volume. Dermal fillers can bring back balance to the face by filling in wrinkles, raising depressed scars, and filling in facial folds. Dermal fillers are often used to add volume to thin lips, and can even be used to reshape the lip borders if desired. In some cases, dermal fillers are also used to balance facial asymmetry or deformity caused by conditions like Bell's Palsy. Dermal fillers offered at CN Medical Aesthetics include Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane-L, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Juvederm Volbella XC, Juvederm Vollure XC. For many people, a combination of Botox and dermal fillers is the ideal way to combat the common effects of aging. The products interact well and can be administered at the same time.
Botox can be used to treat platysma muscle banding. This treatment requires re-dosing every 4-6 months. Surgical neck rejuvenation offers a more dramatic and long-lasting solution.
Neck bands can be treated and fixed with Botox treatment that is a non-surgical method of rejuvenating the aging neck. The Botox injections are safe to use and they temporary reduce the neck bands and give your neck a smoother and more youthful appearance.
The Botox treatment involves injecting the Botox that is a neurotoxin, into the muscle. When it is injected into the vertical bands of the neck, it stops the neural signals from being transmitted thus relaxing the muscle’s hyperactivity. It relaxes the dynamic muscles, making them less prominent, and resulting in a smoother, younger looking neck. The results of Botox treatment usually last up to 6 months.
