How long do results of Botox last for Beverly Hills area patients?
The signs of aging are often a concern for both men and women who are trying to maintain their youthful look over the years. However, gravity and natural changes to the skin and body begin to take over and can result in an aged appearance. The face is often the first place where changes occur, as the collagen and elastin loss that naturally occurs after the age of 30 causes looser skin and aids in the development of fine lines and wrinkles. As time progresses, so do the appearance of these imperfections that can cause patients to feel extremely self-conscious in their own skin.
While some patients feel the only way to address these changes in their skin is with plastic surgeries such as face-lifts, this is not always the case. In fact, many of our patients who are experiencing the early signs of aging may be able to improve their look with less invasive options such as cosmetic injectables. These injectables include neuromodulators such as Botox.
Botox has been around for many years and continues to be used by both men and women to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Botox is injected into the muscles to reduce contractions. When injected into specific areas of the face, such as around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and the forehead, it can smooth out the skin and result in improved texture.
Botox is approved by the FDA for not only anti-aging benefits but for use in a variety of medical conditions including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms), cervical dystonia, chronic migraines, and even overactive bladder. This medication has a number of ways in which it can improve health and wellness, as well as confidence. Many patients will see the improvement for approximately six months or longer before further treatments are necessary to maintain the outcome.
