Botox: Smooth away unwanted wrinkles with a few injections

Botox is widely considered the world’s most popular cosmetic injectable. Even though Botox has been available as a medical treatment for decades, it has become synonymous with wrinkle reduction since the early 2000s. A few careful injections of Botox in Virginia Beach to targeted facial muscles can reduce, prevent, or smoothen away unwanted expression lines, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The results start appearing within a few days, with continued improvements for 2 weeks. The final results last for up to 4 months.

Botox is a neuromodulator (botulinum toxin injection)

To understand how Botox works, you must understand how expression lines are formed. Most of the dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing, frowning, smiling, etc. When you overuse these expressions, your facial muscles strengthen and become larger, leading to deep creases on your skin. When you’re young, the wrinkles disappear when you stop conveying expressions, but the dynamic wrinkles gradually become permanent.

Botox is a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin injection that can temporarily paralyze certain facial muscles. The neurotoxin protein can block communication between the nerve endings and targeted muscles, making the contracted muscles relax. When injected into targeted facial muscles, Botox can temporarily relax the muscles responsible for your unwanted wrinkles. Over time, the dynamic wrinkles and expression lines smoothen away and dissipate, making your skin look smoother and more youthful.

Cosmetic Botox can
correct the following:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds around the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips
  • Creases and dimples on the chin
  • Muscle banding on the neck

Delay the onset of
wrinkles with Botox

In addition to smoothing away existing dynamic wrinkles, early treatments of Botox in Virginia Beach can also delay the onset of wrinkles. Most people start developing visible wrinkles in their late 20s. You can start undergoing Botox treatments in your early 20s to prevent the overuse of the facial muscles responsible for your wrinkles. With early intervention, you can prevent the onset of wrinkles and extend your youthful appearance well into your 30s and beyond.
