What are the positive benefits of BOTOX®? Our Toronto-based practice knows this is something many people wonder about when they’re considering minimally invasive injectable treatments. There’s no doubt that BOTOX® has been an extremely popular treatment year after year, and many even consider it to be the best anti-aging skin treatment available. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections contain a toxin that prevents muscles from moving for a limited time as a way of smoothing wrinkles on the face. It blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. BOTOX® or onabotulinumtoxinA is a type of neuromodulator that’s derived from a bacterium. Check out these five amazing benefits of BOTOX® you should know about.
1. Reducing and Preventing Wrinkles
The main benefit of BOTOX® is of course, reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles to achieve a smoother, more youthful, and revitalized appearance. BOTOX® is primarily used for the upper third of the face to soften wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines and make them less noticeable. Another major benefit of this treatment is that it can stop wrinkles from forming in the first place or prevent them from becoming worse.
2. Fast Results
Although BOTOX® takes some time to work, patients will see improvements in their skin in just three to four days on average. The maximum results can be seen within a week or so. Results appear more quickly when it’s used for finer lines.
3. Long-Lasting Results
The results from this treatment can last for three to four months on average and even longer in some cases. Repeated treatments help to preserve the results.
4. Quick and Convenient Treatments
You won’t need a lengthy office visit to get BOTOX® done. These treatments are completed in just a few minutes. During the procedure, small amounts of the product are injected into specific muscles with a very thin needle. Only the wrinkle-producing muscles are injected so your natural facial expressions are preserved.
5. A Non-Surgical Approach
BOTOX® offers a minimally invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery for patients who want to reduce some signs off aging but are not ready to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. No general anesthesia is required and there’s little to no downtime.
