Botox is one of the most common, non-invasive wrinkle reduction methods in the world. Not only is the injectable treatment safe, effective, and virtually painless, but it is very efficient, with your appointment lasting only 20 minutes and results as soon as five days after treatment. At Louisiana Women’s Aesthetics, we are Baton Rouge’s premier destination for Botox, specializing in injections that provide the most natural-looking results.
Frown lines and crow’s feet form because of repeated muscle movements that accompany everyday expressions – aka, frowning and squinting. Botox Cosmetic works by relaxing these muscles and softening expressions. The muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines are relaxed when Botox temporarily blocks the nerve signals that tell them to contract. The muscles and nerves are not damaged with Botox; they just no longer have the ability to contract. This results in more relaxed muscles, which makes wrinkles appear lighter and the skin softer. When the facial muscles start to contract again, the unwanted wrinkles and fine lines come back; thus, regular Botox treatments make the effects and results last longer.
The benefits of Botox are numerous. It is an FDA-approved injectable product that is used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and other wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic treatments are ideal because each procedure lasts about 20 minutes, depending on your treatment area. You can easily schedule a quick office visit between errands or even during a lunch break. Treatments also require minimal downtime. You’ll be able to return to your day as usual almost immediately once the procedure is over. We do recommend avoiding strenuous exercise following treatment as well as activities such as massages, yoga, and pilates for 24 hours following.
Botox® needles are extremely tiny so you will feel minimal discomfort during your treatment. Immediately after, you may notice small red bumps. These will resolve in 20-30 minutes.
A few days after the Botox injection, the facial muscles start to relax. The wrinkles will be less visible as a full week passes. The full effect of the treatment peaks at 2-4 weeks and can last up to 3-4 months.
While aging doesn’t start exactly the same for all of us, we can pretty much bet on eventually developing lines, wrinkles, and folds. Women and men of all ages can have Botox safely whenever they are bothered by their wrinkles or simply want to prevent them from forming in the first place.
