As you get older, decreasing collagen and the effects of gravity can cause fine lines and wrinkles to form on your face. Botox treatment botoxhelps turn back the clock and improve the appearance of those annoying lines and wrinkles. Your Warren, OH, doctors at Laser Hair Removal and Medical Spas of Ohio, explain how Botox treatment can help you look more youthful.

Botox temporarily stops wrinkles

Botox, a toxin made from the botulinum bacteria, works by temporarily weakening and relaxing the muscles in your face and forehead. After you receive the injections, your muscles don't receive nerve impulses that control frowning and other facial expressions. Botox injections soften expression and worry lines and even prevent new lines and wrinkles from developing.

What type of lines and wrinkles does Botox treat?

Botox treatment is effective for:

  • Vertical "11" lines between the eyes
  • Forehead creases
  • Crow's feet
  • Wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, the lines that extend from your nose to your mouth
  • Crow's feet

What happens during Botox treatment?

Botox is injected directly into your lines and wrinkles. Although this might sound like a painful process, most people only notice a mild stinging sensation when they receive the injections. You may notice a slight improvement immediately after treatment, but you won't experience the full results until a week to 10 days later.

How long will my results last?

Results vary from person to person. In most cases, you can expect your skin to look smoother and less wrinkled for three to six months after treatment. If you don't repeat the injections, your muscles will eventually begin to contract again, and those fine lines and wrinkles will reappear. Visiting your doctor for treatment every three to six months will help you maintain your appearance and help you avoid the changes in your face that can occur if you don't receive follow-up injections.
