Botox is a neuromodulator and temporarily reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by stopping the muscle movement that causes them.
When you squint or frown, your facial muscles create grooves that cause your skin to fold. As your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity due to collagen loss, the repetitive facial movements and folding of the skin create permanent lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, including:
Botox injections block the nerve signals that trigger the muscle movements, stopping the skin folding. Over time, your skin relaxes, and the lines and creases disappear.
You may feel a slight pinch during your Botox injections at Meshkin Medical, but the pain is minimal and well-tolerated by most. The needle your provider uses for these injections is small, and treatment only takes a few minutes.
Most people don’t need any anesthetic when receiving Botox injections. If you’re sensitive to pain, your provider at Meshkin Medical can adjust your plan so you remain comfortable throughout your session.
You may have mild redness and swelling at the site of your injections, but you can return to your usual routine after. The team at Meshkin Medical recommends you wait at least two hours before engaging in intense cardiovascular exercise to reduce the risk of bruising.
You may see improvements in your look within a day or two following your Botox injections at Meshkin Medical. However, it can take up to 30 days until you see the final results.
Botox lasts up to three or four months.
You can safely repeat your Botox injections as soon as you notice a return of your lines and wrinkles. Repeating these injections thins out the facial muscle and may prevent future lines and wrinkles, helping you maintain your youthful appearance.
Meshkin Medical has a MedSpa, where the team offers a number of aesthetic treatments, including dermal fillers and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Your provider may suggest combining treatments for more dramatic results.
