How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
All three of these injectables contain the same active ingredient, Botulinum toxin type A, which works to block the nerves which cause your facial muscles to contract. These muscle contractions are responsible for the formation of many facial wrinkles. By temporarily paralyzing your facial muscles, BOTOX® can help soften the wrinkles that have developed for a short period of time.
During your procedure, a series of small injections will be administered just below the skin. The injection point is where the muscle contracts, not necessarily on the wrinkle itself. Once your treatment has taken effect, you will experience a temporary reduction in the appearance of wrinkles near the treatment site. In most cases, your results will last approximately four to six months. For longer lasting results, you will need to return to our Scottsdale plastic surgery office for follow-up treatments.
Keep in mind that BOTOX® can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but does do not fill in your wrinkles. Some of the deeper lines may not totally disappear. For severe wrinkles, you may want to consider dermal fillers as an alternative.
Am I a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Almost anyone looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles may be a good candidate for BOTOX®. This injectable is an ideal option for patients who prefer a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure to achieve their desired results. It is also significantly less expensive than surgical treatment options, making it an affordable facial rejuvenation solution for patients with a limited budget.
