How Botox® Can Help You Look Younger

How Botox® Can Help You Look Younger

Time, sun damage, and a lifetime of expressions can create lines and furrows in your face that make you look older than you feel. If you want to reclaim your youthful appearance without surgery or downtime, one of the fastest methods of doing so is with FDA-approved Botox® Cosmetic injections.

Along with providing state-of-the-art eye care so you can see clearly, the team at Eye Associates of Monmouth in Colts Neck, New Jersey, can help how others see you: wrinkle-free, relaxed, and natural. We provide a variety of cosmetic services, including smoothing away wrinkles with Botox to help you look younger.

Botox: 20 years of safety and beauty

When choosing an anti-wrinkle treatment for your upper face, Botox is the clear winner. Botox was first approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes in 2002. However, it’s been used safely for noncosmetic purposes since 1989.

Millions of women and men around the globe have enjoyed the benefits of this neuromodulator. Made from a highly purified form of a nerve block called onabotulinumtoxin A, Botox is approved to treat:

Botox is the No. 1 neuromodulator to treat wrinkles caused by dynamic muscles. It’s used in 98 countries.

How you got your wrinkles

Wrinkles are caused by a variety of factors, including skin that gets thinner and more vulnerable due to age or sun damage and dynamic wrinkles that constantly press skin into folds and creases. These dynamic wrinkles allow you to make both subtle and extreme expressions, including:

Botox treats these types of wrinkles by quieting the muscles that cause them. Other kinds of wrinkles on your face, which aren’t formed by muscle contractions, are called static wrinkles. The Eye Associates of Monmouth team treats static wrinkles with other therapies, including dermal fillers.

How Botox erases wrinkles

Your aesthetic expert injects Botox in key areas around your forehead, at the bridge of your nose, and around your eyes to relax overly active muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox blocks the signals that trigger the muscles to contract. Therefore, the muscles calm down and so does the skin above them.

Within a few days to a couple of weeks, your dynamic expressive muscles are calmer. Your skin is, too. The wrinkles smooth out, essentially erasing:

Don’t worry, though: Our expert injectors ensure that you get just enough Botox to prevent your dynamic muscles from squeezing your skin into wrinkles, but not enough to freeze your expressions. You can still emote naturally and beautifully — but without distracting lines and wrinkles.

Botox lasts for months at a time

You may be a bit swollen for a day or two after your Botox treatment, but you notice a difference in the smoothness of your skin within a few days to a week. Full results from your first treatment are visible by the end of the first month, and you keep your refreshed, relaxed, younger look for up to four months

Of course, you don’t have to stop your rejuvenation with your upper face. We also have hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers from the Juvéderm collection. Combined with Botox, Juvéderm creates a liquid facelift by restoring lost volume from your midface, filling in lines and creases, and plumping up your lips.
