Botox is a popular neuromodulator that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The medication works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle. Dr. Boutros injects Botox into the targeted muscle, which prevents the skin from creasing. The wrinkles begin to soften as the muscle relaxes.
One of the unique benefits of Botox is its ability to treat existing wrinkles and prevent new ones. By preventing muscle movement, Botox can help you maintain a youthful appearance as you age.
Botox treats dynamic wrinkles, or expression lines, which develop due to repeated muscle movement. Dynamic wrinkles form in the upper third part of your face, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes. The most common wrinkles that Botox treats are:
Botox can also treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. It can also create a nonsurgical brow lift.
Since Botox is a neuromodulator, it can’t treat static wrinkles, which result from volume loss. Je Lu Ja Spa offers dermal fillers to plump sagging skin and restores lost volume in the lower portion of the face. Fillers can treat static wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, hollowed cheeks, and marionette lines.
When you arrive for treatment, Dr. Boutros offers a numbing anesthetic to minimize your discomfort. Then, he injects the medication into your desired area. The procedure takes only a few minutes and involves no downtime. You can return to your daily activities right away. However, you may experience mild bruising or swelling at the injection site.
Botox results can take up to one week to appear. Botox results typically last for about 3-6 months, though combining your injections with other treatments, like dermal fillers, can help you maintain your appearance.
