Every time you smile, frown or use your facial muscles to express any other emotions, small amounts of tension are created and stored. Over time, this tension begins manifest around the eyes and mouth, and across the forehead as noticeable wrinkles and fine lines. Commonly referred to as dynamic wrinkles, these creases can make a person look far older than he or she truly is. If you’ve recently developed crow’s feet, frown lines, or vertical, perioral wrinkles around your mouth, BOTOX® could be right for you. This FDA-approved neuromodulator can instantly release the stress that’s been building in your expressive muscles to create a smooth, youthful, and all-round line-free visage. Right now, it’s the top choice among residents of Manchester, New Hampshire, who want a safe, simple and entirely non-invasive way to turn back the hands of time.
Getting BOTOX® Injections in Manchester
Injections rarely take more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete. This is why many Manchester locals are calling this treatment the “lunchtime face lift”. A very small-tipped needle is used to deliver the solution into areas that are showing the signs of dynamic wrinkling. The needle for this treatment is not unlike the needles that diabetic patients use when injecting insulin. It allows for an incredibly precise and controlled delivery of BOTOX® so that patients get natural-looking results. It also ensures that patients can continue making a diverse range of natural-looking, facial expressions, even as both muscle tension and dynamic wrinkles are released.
We can always use a topical numbing agent or an ice pack to limit your discomfort during this procedure. Overall, however, BOTOX® causes minimal discomfort. More importantly, there’s absolutely no downtime with this procedure. As soon as all your injections are done, you can resume your normal schedule right away. Any aftereffects are generally mild and typically dissipate on their own, and thus, no special aftercare is required.
Is BOTOX® the Best Med Spa Treatment for You?
Dynamic wrinkles are facial creases that are only visible when the face is in motion, such as when you’re laughing or furrowing your brow. Static wrinkles, however, are deeper and more severe creases that are indicative of advanced facial aging. These creases must often be addressing with injectable, dermal fillers or invasive, skin-tightening procedures. One thing to note is that BOTOX® can be safely and seamlessly paired with a number of non-invasive anti-aging treatments. As such, if you have both static and dynamic wrinkles to address, your provider can give you an individualized and integrated plan for meeting all of your cosmetic goals.
What to Expect After BOTOX®
One of the best things about BOTOX® is the fact that it’s only meant to last for a relatively short period of time. The effects of most BOTOX® injections last just four to six months. These procedures can be safely performed several times each year. Moreover, after multiple BOTOX® injections, many patients report extended benefits. You can expect to see an immediate decrease in dynamic wrinkles as soon as your treatment is finished. As this powerful injectable has a continued impact on the targeted facial nerves and muscles, additional improvements should continue to manifest for up to three to five days following your treatment session.
