Soften facial dynamic wrinkles

BOTOX is a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected in small doses, it temporarily paralyzes or relaxes muscles by blocking nerve signals, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It's commonly used to treat dynamic facial wrinkles, including crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. The results typically last 3 to 4 months, offering a non-invasive solution for achieving a smoother, more youthful complexion.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX works by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine from nerve cells. Acetylcholine is responsible for transmitting signals that cause muscle contractions. When BOTOX is injected into specific facial muscles, it blocks the release of acetylcholine, effectively preventing muscle contractions. As a result, the targeted muscles become temporarily paralyzed or relaxed. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by the overuse of facial expressions, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.

Can BOTOX really delay or prevent new wrinkles?

BOTOX has shown promising potential in delaying or preventing the formation of new wrinkles. By temporarily relaxing facial muscles, our BOTOX in Springfield, MO, minimizes the repetitive movements that contribute to wrinkle formation over time. This approach is particularly effective for dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Regular BOTOX treatments starting in your 20s or early 30s can help you maintain a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion or prevent existing wrinkles from deepening.

What happens during the BOTOX treatment?

During the BOTOX treatment at Serotonin Centers, your provider will cleanse the treatment area to ensure optimal hygiene. Using a fine needle, they will inject small amounts of BOTOX into targeted facial muscles. The injections may cause minimal discomfort, often likened to a slight pinching sensation. The entire process typically takes just a few minutes, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately afterward.

Side effects and recovery after BOTOX

After BOTOX, you may experience mild side effects like temporary redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection sites. These subside within a few hours to days. Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area to minimize the risk of spreading the toxin. While there’s no downtime, it's recommended to refrain from strenuous activities for 24 hours post-treatment.

BOTOX results: onset and longevity

You can expect to start noticing the effects of BOTOX within 3 to 7 days after treatment, with optimal results appearing within two weeks. These results typically last for 3 to 4 months. To maintain your refreshed appearance, follow-up treatments are recommended 2 to 3 times per year or as the effects gradually wear off.
