Botox is one of the most sought-out wrinkle-reducing treatments available today. It is known for delivering professional results in a way that is totally safe and non-surgical. Before you get attached to this treatment, you might wonder how often it can be repeated. At Dundee Dermatology in West Dundee, IL, we are happy to let you know that there is no limit to the number of times you can renew your results.
In other good news, the results actually last for 3-4 months, so you won’t actually need to repeat the injections very often. So, how will this treatment fit into your life and what do you need to know before you get started?
How Often Can You Get Botox Injections?
We recommend that you schedule your injections 3-4 months apart. This will allow you to experience the full effects of each set while renewing them before your lines start to come back. This treatment is extremely gentle, and having follow-ups 3-4 times a year is virtually risk free. Apart from keeping the optimal spacing in mind, there is no upper limit to the number of times you can come in.
Why Is This Treatment Worth Repeating?
One of the best things about Botox is the fact that it offers a high level of efficacy without compromising on convenience or longevity. Unlike topical solutions, it is designed to address the root of the problem in a mindful way that can become a lifelong approach. Here are some of the reasons to consider this neuromodulator:
It Reduces Wrinkles at Their Source
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the facial expressions that are made on a daily basis. Little by little, the tensing muscles crease the skin above them, making permanent impressions. Neuromodulators like Botox use botulinum toxin in small doses. This purified protein keeps the muscles relaxed, allowing them to move without contributing to the aging process.
It Is Designed To Be Tasteful
While these injections DO have a big impact on your appearance that lasts for months, they DO NOT alter your face in a drastic or permanent way. The look you get is sophisticated, smooth, and natural. We perform the injections with a high level of artistic sensitivity, ensuring that your face stays expressive and that your treatment achieves a significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The Results Show In Just 2 Days
After your appointment, you will not need to wait long to see improvements in your skin. Most people report enhanced smoothness within 48 hours, and full results in less than 10 days. While follow-up appointments are necessary to maintain the results over the course of many years, they are not needed to see the full effects. After one session, you will be good to go for the next 3-4 months.
Longevity and Convenience
Since the results of this treatment last for 3-4 months, incorporating the injections into an ongoing skincare routine does not require a big investment of time. Plus, the appointments only take half an hour each! Of that time, only 10 minutes is needed for the injections. With just a quick stop by our med spa a few times per year, you can enjoy smoother skin for as long as you like.
High Efficacy Against Dynamic Lines
Dynamic lines are the ones that show up on the most mobile parts of the face, including on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. This treatment is most commonly used for:
- Brow lines
- Crows feet
- Frown Lines
Botulinum toxin has proven to be highly versatile in the cosmetics industry. It is also used for controlling excess sweat, enhancing lips, and even softening the age lines that appear around the neck. If you have a question about whether or not your lines will respond to this treatment, just give us a call!
High Patient Comfort
There is no need to worry about how these injections will feel. They are done with an ultra-fine needle and most people report no significant discomfort. You will not need anesthesia, and the process goes by very quickly.
Great Results for People of All Skin Types
Some treatments are ineffective or even dangerous for certain people, depending on their skin type. Since Botox works on the muscles, rather than the skin itself, there is no need to worry about that. If you are a healthy adult, chances are this treatment is a great option for you.
