Botox is a neuromodulator — an injectable that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face. The active ingredient in Botox, the Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin, works by relaxing the muscles that make wrinkles. That blurs fine lines and wrinkles and also prevents their return.
Botox is the best-known product of its type, but Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC also offers other equally effective products: Dysport® and Xeomin®.
All three products contain the same active ingredient and work to relax muscles in the same manner. But, each product is FDA-approved for use in different parts of the face. Some people find that one product is particularly effective for them while others may prefer a different one.
Over time, your skin becomes less elastic and doesn’t bounce back as quickly as it used to. As a child, wrinkling your brow wouldn’t cause any lingering traces, but later in life, you might wrinkle your brow and notice a faint line there long after you relax your facial muscles.
Botox is ideal for the wrinkles caused by muscle movement, such as years of squinting in the sun or furrowing your forehead. The main treatment areas for Botox include:
If you have lines and wrinkles in multiple areas, it’s not a problem: Most patients treat crow’s feet, between the brows, and the forehead during the same short treatment session at Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC.
Botox treatment uses an extremely fine needle, and most people only experience a quick sting or two during their treatment session. The injections only take a few minutes, and you can resume your regular activities immediately.
Botox can take effect as soon as 24-48 hours after your treatment at Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC. It takes 14 days to see the full results of your treatment.
Botox, Dysport®, and Xeomin® generally last for three to five months. Quality skin care can be a great anti-aging tactic that may help to maximize the life of your treatments. Additionally, peptide therapy can boost your skin’s collagen supply and increase elasticity to improve your appearance even more.
