Interested in learning more about anti-aging injections – but not sure which one is right for you?
It’s no wonder: Lately, it seems as though there are more anti-aging injections available than ever before. From dermal fillers to Botox, there’s a treatment for almost every type of aging symptom out there. The only problem is, how do you know which injection treats your specific aging symptoms?
More specifically, what signs of aging do Botox injections target?
Botox is an FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that uses its active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A – to smooth away the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. The botulinum toxin (sounds scary, but it’s perfectly safe!) blocks the nerve signals that are sent by the brain to the corresponding muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the muscles are tricked into remaining relatively motionless.
As a result, the skin above the muscle area becomes much more relaxed, which helps alleviate the appearance of deep lines caused by brow furrowing, squinting, and more.
Botox is perhaps one of the most popular anti-aging injections, and for good reason: it has an almost-immediate effect on some types of facial wrinkles, with results lasting anywhere from three to six months. Botox injections can be easily controlled, so clients can opt for a more conservative injection to see how they like it.
The best candidates for Botox injections are people who may be bothered by the appearance of moderate lines between their eyebrows and/or across the forehead. Botox can also be used to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, which is commonly caused by frequent squinting over time.
