BOTOX® Cosmetic, a cosmetic treatment used commonly to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, gently relaxes muscles. It has the added benefit of headache and facial tension reduction when used regularly.
As a temporary treatment, BOTOX® is tolerated well by most patients and beneficial effects tend to occur within a day or two with maximum benefits taking full effect after about one week. Treatment can last up to 3-4 months before retreatment is required.
Because of the ability to relax muscles, dentists have found additional benefits in the treatment of botox in St George Utah.
How BOTOX® Treatment Works?
Botox in St George UT works for dynamic wrinkles, which you get when you move your face. You might notice these as crow’s feet (you get these around your eyes from smiling) or lines on your forehead (those come from furrowing your brow). Static wrinkles happen as your skin gets older, losing some of the tissue that gives it structure. This creates wrinkles that show up even when your face isn’t moving. All of the terminology for how Botox® works with your skin gets a little complicated, but we’ve broken it down into a few key areas that our customers often get effective treatment:
- The forehead
- Around the eyes, including crow’s feet and bunny lines
- Frown lines
- The chin and jawline
- The nose area
