Botox can be used in facial wrinkles and is most often used in the following areas.
Wrinkles develop for several reasons. They're a result of aging, as the skin becomes less elastic over the years. When skin is less elastic, it's less able to snap back into place after you make expressions like frowns or squints. Sun exposure can also contribute to wrinkles, especially when it comes to fine lines. Botox is especially good at treating wrinkles that occur due to both age and sun exposure.
This is completely dependent upon the individual and their unique skin. Botox is administered in units. Each area requires a certain amount to properly freeze the muscles being treated. Most patients need around 20 units per treatment area, but this does vary according to the depth of the wrinkles. Whether your wrinkles and lines are just starting to emerge, are very minor, or deeply ingrained, Botox can help.
Botox lasts for three to four months in most patients. To maximize the lifespan of Botox, avoid sun exposure and use a high-quality skin care line like Obagi or Colorescience. Buy these products easily online on the Brickell Cosmetic Center website!
Botox combines very well with other non-invasive cosmetic treatments and procedures. In fact, many Brickell Cosmetic Center patients combine dermal filler treatments like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® with Botox treatments. Botox is also frequently combined with facials or treatments like the HydraFacial.® While Botox is great at erasing wrinkles, it doesn't do anything to change the texture, the tone, or the overall luminosity of the skin. Fortunately, many of the state-of-the-art treatments at Brickell Cosmetic Center can do exactly that.
