The Benefits of Botox

Published on Dec 10, 2018 by Tito Vasquez

Fine lines, wrinkles, and facial volume loss are a natural part of the aging process, due to a loss of collagen in the skin. You can’t control the aging process, however, you can fight the lines it leaves behind with Botox! Botox is an injectable formula that can smooth out your wrinkles for a younger, more rejuvenated appearance. There are many injectable formulas on the market, but here are some of the benefits of choosing Botox at CTPSG:

Ditch dynamic wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that appear or worsen when making facial expressions like squinting, frowning, or smiling. These can appear in the outer corners of the eyes, between the brows, and in the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles should not be confused with static wrinkles, which are present even when the face is relaxed. Botox is a neuromodulator injectable that affects the muscles, temporarily reducing their activity to prevent wrinkles from forming and resulting in smoother skin.

Nonsurgical – no downtime

Botox is nonsurgical and requires little invasion! Botox is injected beneath the skin with a very fine needle, resulting in no scarring. Local anesthesia is not required but a numbing solution may be applied before treatment if you’re worried about discomfort. Because it is nonsurgical, there is no required downtime. Patients might experience mild side effects like swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites, but can return to their regular daily routine right away.

Fast results that last

The results of Botox will begin to appear in just a few days after treatment. Patients will be able to show their natural facial expressions, but without the fine lines and wrinkles. The results of Botox can last for up to four months before a maintenance session is needed. Botox can also be used along with other nonsurgical treatments like fillers or laser skin resurfacing for optimal rejuvenation.
