BOTOX and other treatments
BOTOX has been widely used since the 1990s. It uses a purified protein from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum to force facial muscles to relax, reducing the appearance of laugh lines and frown lines. Carefully applied, it has minimal side effects and can take years off your face without looking unnatural. In some cases, BOTOX is conservatively used on younger patients to prevent or delay the appearance of wrinkles.
Don’t do hard exercise for the first day after a BOTOX injection. Results should be visible in a few days, and they should last three to six months. After the first injection has worn off, it’s safe to get a follow-up injection. Many patients have found that the results of BOTOX last several months longer after several treatments.
Don’t take BOTOX if you’re pregnant, nursing or suffer from a neurological disease, and remember that it’s only for a specific kind of wrinkle. Other wrinkles, such as smile lines that appear around the nose and lip area, can be treated by injectable fillers such as RADIESSE, which can be injected into the face or hands and lasts up to two years. Other fillers are Restylane and Perlane, gels which can be used to enhance the lips.
