What is Botox?
Botox is the most popular noninvasive cosmetic procedure today. It smooths wrinkles and prevents those wrinkles from forming again for several months. Botox is a neurotoxic protein derived from Clostridium botulinum. The FDA approved Botox for use in wrinkle reduction in 2002, and it’s grown in popularity ever since.
At European Wellness Cosmedical, your highly skilled provider performs all Botox injections using an ultra-thin needle.
Where can I get Botox in my face?
The most popular parts of the face for Botox treatment are:
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- “11” lines (lines between the eyebrows)
- Forehead lines above the eyebrows and up to the hairline
Although not as common, some patients request Botox in the lines around their lips as well.
Botox is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, a type of wrinkles that appear when you move your facial muscles repeatedly over time. It’s a great solution to reduce muscle movement in a given area and smooth away wrinkles temporarily, but it can’t plump up deep-set facial folds or make areas of your face look fuller. For that type of correction, you need a dermal filler like Juvéderm® or Restylane®.
How long does Botox last?
In most cases, Botox lasts for 3-4 months. If your goal is long-term wrinkle correction, simply schedule maintenance treatments several times a year. Over time, you may need Botox treatments less often because a consistent supply of Botox is always in your body.
Botox is most effective for long-term wrinkle correction if you have maintenance treatments before the product has totally worn off, so don’t wait until your wrinkles are just as bad as before to get future treatments.
Can I get Botox at the same time as Juvéderm or Restylane?
Yes, in fact, many European Wellness Cosmedical patients opt for a combination of Botox and dermal fillers to correct their cosmetic concerns. Static wrinkles, which are lines and folds that are always there, even when you’re not making facial expressions, don’t respond to Botox, but they do respond well to dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm.
If you’ve got forehead lines and crow’s feet, but you’re also worried about the deep folds around your nose and mouth, your provider may recommend a combination approach with Botox in the forehead and a dermal filler in the facial folds.
You can get Botox and dermal fillers in the same appointment, which usually takes only around half-an-hour.
