Years ago, Botox became a household name in terms of aesthetic facial treatments. Instead of dealing with the wrinkles and folds on the upper third of the face that could cause a patient to look older than they really are, patients could finally treat the issue without having to undergo a facelift, browlift, or other surgical procedures. Instead, a simple injection could stop the nerves and result in a smoother appearance.
Botox is a common neuromodulator that has been used for decades in the medical field. Before it was a common facial injection, it was used for other conditions such as headaches, cervical dystonia, and even overactive bladder, before it was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in the face. This neuromodulator is formulated with botulinum toxin type A which can reduce muscular contractions where injected. This, in turn, smooths dynamic wrinkles including:
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines
- Forehead folds
Botox takes a few days to fully work and achieve optimum results, and these results are often maintained for several months before reinjection is needed. This depends heavily on the patient’s natural metabolism and how quickly the medication is absorbed by the body.
Is Botox safe?
Botox has helped thousands of people achieve a more youthful appearance free from wrinkles and folds on the upper third of the face, and continues to be a popular treatment for patients dealing with dynamic wrinkles. It has been cleared by the FDA as a cosmetic treatment and continues to be one of the leading solutions for aging skin. It allows many of our patients to delay the need for invasive plastic surgeries, achieving results without ever going under the knife. Our providers at Columbus Women’s Care are excited to offer this along with other medical and cosmetic solutions.
