Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing wrinkles looking back at you? We feel your pain. A lot of people feel self-conscious about evident signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. The good news, though, is that there are treatments available, and Botox® is a prime example of this.
Botox® injections are mainly championed for their ability to lower the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. However, they can be used to treat other conditions as well. This includes a lazy eye, an overactive bladder, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and neck spasms (cervical dystonia). Some patients also have Botox® to help them with the prevention of chronic migraines.
A chemical compound known as onabotulinumtoxinA is used in Botox® injections. This chemical has the benefit of preventing a muscle from moving on a temporary basis, which helps the muscle to relax and smoothes out the appearance of your skin.
How Long Will Botox® Last?
A lot of people wonder whether or not Botox® is permanent. Botox® is a temporary treatment, yet the results are very long-lasting. In most cases, Botox® will last between two and four months. However, it really does all depend on the patient. In some instances, the injections can last longer than this, whereas others may feel like they want to have a top-up sooner.
