Beginner’s Guide to Botox

Every little expression you make can affect the way you look. Smiling, frowning, laughing, focusing intently, squinting, anything else you can think of. They all have a lasting effect on the appearance of the skin. As you furrow your brow over and over throughout your life, lasting lines and creases begin to form. The good news is you don’t need to go under the knife to fix these issues. Injectables like Botox can have you looking years younger with a few simple injections.

Licensed medical experts at 5 clinics In Hilliard and Columbus Ohio are here and ready to provide you with fast, safe injectables created for targeting fine lines and wrinkles in the face, forehead, around the eyes, eleven lines, and more. 

In this post, we will break down some information about botox, what it is, how it works, and how it might be a solution to fine lines and wrinkles that bother you when you look in the mirror.

What is Botox?

The word Botox comes from the abbreviation of its main ingredient – Botulinum Neurotoxin Type-A. To make a long story short, this formula is able to relax the muscles of the face, releasing the skin above and the lines and wrinkles along with it.

There are several strategic locations that Botox can be injected for varying results and wrinkle reductions.

Cosmetic Uses for Botox

When used for cosmetic purposes, Botox is used mainly to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the skin of the face, more particularly the forehead, brow, and eye areas. You may have heard the terms eleven lines, crows feet, and frown lines. They’re all common targets for Botox, which shows great results.

On average, Botox lasts 3-12 months. It varies based on the number of injections, where you inject, and how much Botox is used.

Botox is also used for some medical purposes. Severe underarm sweating is an example of a disorder that Botox can be used to treat. Migraines are another.

What areas can be treated?

Patients most often seek Botox for the treatment of:

  • Eleven lines – the wrinkles that form between the eyebrows from furrowing the brow
  • Crows feet – wrinkles forming in the corner of the eye from smiling and squinting
  • Horizontal lines in the forehead
  • Lines in the corners of the mouth, known as frown lines

Is Botox a good fit for me?

Patients who seek Botox are interested in smoothing out the appearance of their skin and looking younger with a non-invasive, low-risk procedure that provides temporary results. It is the best of skin tightening without the need for any incisions.

Injections are low-risk, fast, and require no down time, making them an ideal choice for people leading busy lives or those who don’t like the idea of cosmetic surgery.
