Unwanted effects of natural aging, sun exposure, decrease in elasticity, and loss of collagen all add up over time and visibly age your skin. However, Botox® can treat both the causes and the effects of skin aging thanks to medical advances in muscle relaxers. Botox® relaxes the muscles in problem areas where you want to reduce or blur visible lines that have appeared over time. This not only visibly improves the condition of your skin, but also works to prevent future lines and wrinkles, especially with continued treatment.
HOW IT WORKS
By injecting Botox® into problem areas and targeting specific muscles, you can improve both the causes and effects of aging skin. Botox® acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Botox® can temporarily reduce the lines and wrinkles that visibly age you. True MD specializes in treating specific problem areas to effectively treat the areas of concern, leaving the rest of your facial muscles untreated and letting you naturally make facial expressions as you normally would.
The ten to twenty minute procedure includes injection of a small amount of Botox® by a skin rejuvenation specialist into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox® is a painless procedure that requires no anesthesia. Topical anesthetic or a cold pack are available to reduce any discomfort at your discretion.
You will start to see results from your Botox® procedure within three-to-ten days. It will gradually reduce the muscles’ ability to contract in the targeted area while simultaneously smoothing and rejuvenating the appearance of your skin. The effects of your Botox® procedure will last from three-to-five months. Continued treatments every 90 days will increase the permanency of the treatment, weakening the muscles over time and preventing them from causing continued wrinkles and lines.
