Botox is a cosmetic treatment that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But, it can also get used for medical purposes such as treating migraines and reducing neck spasms. It’s a sought-after, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that has proven anti-aging benefits.
When it comes to selecting an effective treatment, Botox is the most popular option of them all. It’s useful for reducing the appearance of “crow’s feet”, forehead lines, and deep furrows between the brows.
The purpose of having Botox injections is to help restore and refresh natural beauty. Botox works by targeting muscles that control facial expression and relaxing them. The result of such targeted treatment is that age and stress-related wrinkles become diminished.
How does Botox work? In a nutshell, Botox, or “botulinum toxin” as it’s also known, temporarily blocks signals to facial muscles. The idea is that Botox helps prevent facial grimaces and frowns, and aims to create a smoother, more wrinkle-free appearance.
At the Laser Skin Care Center, our professional team of dermatologists is both fully-qualified and skilled at administering Botox injections. We understand the dynamics of facial expression and use that knowledge to create a perfectly natural look for our patients.
One of the most common questions patients new to Botox ask is how often they should schedule their Botox injections. The thing you need to know about Botox is that each session needs to get appropriately timed if you wish to achieve the most effective results.
If you schedule your next session too soon, you can potentially end up looking “overdone” and the opposite of how you want to look! Similarly, if you wait too long between sessions, you could end up looking tired and signs of aging may become noticeable again.
Each patient has different Botox requirements, and so there’s no hard and fast rule about when you should schedule your next Botox session. It’s worth keeping in mind that the effects of Botox typically last around four to six months.

Benefits of Botox
The primary reason patients opt for Botox injections for cosmetic reasons is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It’s one of the world’s safest and most-trusted injectable cosmetic treatments and has been in use for decades.
Millions of American men and women have Botox treatments each year, and each session causes only minor temporary discomfort. The procedure is quick, and you’re free to resume your daily activities after each session at the Laser Skin Care Center.
Patients that have Botox injections typically see the positive results of their session around one week after their appointment.
Am I a Candidate for Botox?
Botox is an ideal solution for addressing moderate to severe wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. Patients are generally candidates for Botox if they’re in good overall health.
Having Botox injections might not be for you if you’re very anxious or are intolerant to botulinum toxin.
