A smile, a frown, a squint, a grimace – you probably make all of these facial expressions at least once a day, if not more. Your facial expressions are how you show how you’re feeling, and many of them involve moving your face in some way. As you age, the lines that form can remain, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. Fortunately, with BOTOX, you can smooth out these lines and wrinkles to appear younger and more refreshed. At Avanti Medical Center in Lehi, UT, Kellie Lewis and our team help patients of all ages benefit from BOTOX. Here’s an overview of how BOTOX can improve your look and how you can benefit from this simple procedure.
What kind of wrinkles can BOTOX relax?
Your face is a dynamic part of your appearance. It moves and shifts with your facial expressions and when you talk, eat, and go about your daily routine. As you get older, your skin changes and isn’t able to smooth out these lines on its own. As a result, the lines that appear when you move your face stick around, which can significantly impact your appearance.
BOTOX addresses this by relaxing wrinkles and fine lines, such as:
Crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes)
While you can’t – and shouldn’t – stop smiling, laughing, or making other facial expressions, you can limit the impact they have on your facial appearance with BOTOX.
What are the benefits of BOTOX treatment?
Whether you already have fine lines or wrinkles or are hoping to prevent them from forming, BOTOX treatments performed at our office in Lehi, UT can improve and smooth out your facial skin to enhance your look and confidence.
Benefits of BOTOX include:
Minimally invasive procedure
No recovery or downtime
Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
Helps prevent future lines and wrinkles
Cheaper and less recovery than plastic surgery
Works well with other aesthetic procedures
How does BOTOX work?
Smoothing out wrinkles without surgery may sound too good to be true, but BOTOX is a noninvasive treatment to do just that. BOTOX is a filtered type A strain of botulinum toxin, which temporarily disengages your facial muscles that contract. This allows your skin to recover on its own and smooth out forehead creases, Crow’s feet, and frown lines.
At Avanti Medical Center, your treatment consultation will consist of a skin analysis to identify which areas would benefit from treatment. Because BOTOX is a quick and easy treatment done in our office in Lehi, UT, you can usually have injections done in the same appointment.
BOTOX treatments take about 5 – 10 minutes in total. In general, patients experience only minor discomfort, often described as a pinching or pinprick sensation.
What is recovery like after BOTOX?
BOTOX is minimally invasive, meaning downtime and recovery is minor. You may experience a little bruising, swelling, or redness in the treatment sites, but this should subside shortly after treatment.
Your BOTOX technician may suggest you avoid physical activity and touching the treatment area for the next day or so to enhance your results.
After a few days, you will start to notice your results, which will last for up to four months. Our team can suggest a treatment schedule to maintain your appearance long-term.
