Are you looking for a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your face and eliminate that tired look? If so botox cosmetics is an excellent solution! Botox has become a sought-after cosmetic treatment, because of its proven anti-aging benefits. But how effective is botox for fine lines and wrinkles?
Here at Laser Skin Care Center we use botox to help countless men and women maintain a more youthful appearance. Botox is a safe, quick, virtually painless procedure that takes just a few minutes to complete.
How Effective is Botox for Anti-Aging?
Botox is very effective for reducing the appearance of common dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, vertical and horizontal forehead lines, and deep furrows between the brows.
Dynamic wrinkles are created as a result of the movement of the facial muscles, during expressions such as laughing, squinting, and frowning. Botox is effective for these types of wrinkles because it temporarily reduces the contraction of the underlying muscles.
When botox is injected into the muscles that create dynamic wrinkles, it blocks the transmission of the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. Since the muscles can no longer contract, the wrinkles above soften and become far less noticeable. Botox also prevents the formation of new wrinkles.
The effects of botox typically last 3-4 months, and after this time muscle movement will resume, and the wrinkles will return. Follow-up treatments are therefore needed to maintain results. If you are getting botox for the first time, the effects may wear off earlier, on the other hand, the effects tend to last longer with repeated use.
What Can You Expect from your Botox Treatment?
There is no downtime after Botox, but the injection site may be slightly bruised and swollen. These side-effects typically resolve within a day are two. After botox, your doctor will advise you not to lie down for at least 4 hours, and avoid rubbing the area for at least 24 hours.
The transformative results of botox can be seen about 5-7 days after treatment, and optimal results can take up to 2 weeks.

Will my Botox Results look Natural?
Botox can certainly make the face look naturally youthful and rejuvenated. However, in order to achieve natural-looking results, it is essential to have Botox administered by a skilled, experienced injector. Our dermatologists and licensed aestheticians at Laser Skin Care Center, all have extensive experience performing botox and other cosmetic treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
If you would like to address moderate-to-severe wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, you would probably be a good candidate for botox. You should also be in good overall health.
