While there are a lot of treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is a standout option. In fact, it is one of the most popular and effective ways to address the signs of aging. If you are thinking about trying it for yourself, you probably have a lot of questions, including how often you should schedule a session. At Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, IL, we can tell you all about the experience of getting this treatment, and how it can help you look like your best self.
The Quick Facts on Botox
This treatment is designed for cosmetic use on all sorts of fine lines and wrinkles. It delivers remarkable improvements in:
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines (frown lines)
- Forehead lines
- Necklace lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Other facial lines
It also has a variety of other applications, including the treatment of sagging eyebrows, migraines, and excessive sweating. When treating fine lines, it works as an injectable neuromodulator, meaning that it blocks the signals that tell certain muscles to tighten. Without that tension, your lines will soften away over the course of about ten days.
How Frequently Should You Get This Treatment?
The results last a long time, so you actually don’t need to get this treatment very often. Most people report that the injections work 3-6 months after they are administered. That means that at most, you will be coming in 4 times per year to maintain your results. Many people only schedule an appointment twice a year.
Why Is This Treatment So Successful?
To date, over 11 million people have tried this treatment, and its popularity continues to grow. Studies consistently show overwhelming levels of satisfaction. Mostly, this is happening because it works so well. So, what are some of the best reasons to try it?
The Results Are Real
Keeping your skin looking the way you want it to is not the easiest thing in the world. We are all susceptible to sun damage, aging, and other factors. While many creams and serums are sold as miracle solutions to the problem of fine lines and wrinkles, most of them do not live up to their claims.
Botox is different. It treats the underlying cause of your fine lines, rather than just covering them up. After your treatment, you will see the difference for yourself.
It Doesn’t Take Too Much Time
Every part of the process is easy and quick. Your appointment will take around half an hour, and the injections themselves can be done in 10 minutes. We will give you a numbing agent, which will keep you from feeling discomfort the entire time.
You’ll See Results in 2 Days
If you can’t wait to see your fine lines go away, we have good news. Most people see results in about 48 hours. After that, the full effect takes only two weeks to develop.
You Can Maintain Your Results
The vast majority of people who try this treatment say they want to do it again. The great news is that you can. While you won’t need to schedule more than a few sessions each year, it is perfectly safe to come back as many times as you like. And, you can expect excellent results each time.
It’s Safer Than Aspirin
This treatment offers an unbeatable level of safety. In the two decades since it was approved, it has performed better than many over-the-counter medications that you can easily buy in a drugstore, including Aspirin.
No Recovery Period
There is no downtime for this treatment. Normal activities like driving, going to work, and running errands are no problem. You can go back to them as soon as you leave our medspa. Working out is the only activity that you should postpone right after your injections, and even that can be resumed after 24 hours.
You Will Look Smooth and Natural
You don’t need to choose between fine lines and a frozen face. We are licensed professionals who know all about facial anatomy, so you can trust us to isolate the tiny muscles that are causing wrinkles. Depending on what part of your face you treat, you will probably receive only 5 injections total. In any case, your face will look both smooth and expressive after your treatment.
