Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are all a normal part of aging. As we get older and the body’s collagen production slows down, the face is usually the first place to show the signs of aging.
Whether it’s forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, or deep frown lines around the mouth, more and more adults are turning to non-surgical cosmetic treatments like Botox.
At Vital Clinic and Spa, Dr. Buttar and our team offer a range of services, including Botox and fillers, at our office in Cypress, Texas.
How long do Botox injections last?
Everyone is different, and the results of fillers and cosmetic treatments like Botox vary from person to person. While Botox injections quickly relieve targeted fine lines and wrinkles, the results aren’t permanent and usually require more injections at regular intervals.
In general, Botox injections usually last anywhere from 2-6 months.
Why isn’t Botox permanent?
Botox injections block a neurotransmitter that causes a specific muscle to contract. Botox diminishes the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily “freezing” the muscles that cause lines in the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. As the effect of your Botox injections begins to fade, the muscles resume their regular activity.
Does Botox work for everyone?
Like all cosmetic treatments, some people experience better results than others. Botox works best on lines and wrinkles that form when muscles contract, like smiling, laughing, and squinting.
Botox is most effective on crow’s feet, frown and laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles and creases. Since Botox works by blocking muscle contractions, it isn’t effective on wrinkles and fine lines caused by skin laxity and advanced aging.
Everything from your age, metabolism, genetics, and lifestyle affects how well you’ll react to Botox and other cosmetic treatments. While there’s no “right” age to get Botox, most people are in their 40s and 50s. Some people also get Botox earlier as a preventive treatment to manage the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’re interested in Botox or any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a licensed and experienced medical practitioner for your safety and to guarantee the best results. At Vital Clinic and Spa, you can rest assured you are in good hands. We are highly trained in placing Botox injections to create the best results.
