Thank You for Trusting Aesthetica Med Spa with Your Austin Botox Treatments!
The use of BOTOX Cosmetic is now one of the world’s most commonly performed procedures. It is also one of the safest, most effective and easiest to administer cosmetic wrinkle treatments available. This treatment in helps people eliminate unwanted fine lines and wrinkles caused by age, repeated facial expressions, and overexposure to the sun. Botox injections create a more relaxed, youthful appearance by:
- Softening forehead lines
- Elevating tired, droopy eyebrows
- Diminishing the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines near the eyes
- Weakening the vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frequently referred to as 11’s)
Botox temporarily reduces the muscle activity that creates fine lines and wrinkles, allowing you to still look surprised, frown or make other facial expressions, without the visible wrinkles and creases that were previously there. Most of us don’t realize that we have over 100 muscles in our face, by just shutting down a few of those muscles you dramatically decrease lines and wrinkles.
How Does it Work?
Botox Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes and forehead to smooth crow’s feet, frown, worry, and scowl lines. Made from a protein and neurotoxin, injections block nerve impulses in the injected muscles, reducing the activity that was causing moderate to severe lines to form, while softening and smoothing these lines to give the face a more youthful, rejuvenated look.
How is Botox Measured?
Botox is measured in units. The total units required for treatment vary based on the area(s) being treated. Units are not injected individually, multiple units are administered through a few injection sites to effectively deliver to the desired treatment area.
