Fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases are among the most common signs of aging affecting men and women. There are numerous solutions to these age-related changes, some of which are more effective than others. One of the most popular ways to reduce wrinkles and fine lines is BOTOX®, a non-surgical injectable that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing further ones from forming.
Botox injectables work through a process called neuromodulation, which targets signs of aging at their source. As you age, there’s a natural decline in collagen and elastin in your skin, making it less elastic than it was in your youth. With decreased elasticity, continuous facial movement leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. This means that every smile, frown, or laugh can contribute to changes. Neuromodulators like Botox work by interacting directly with the nerves and muscles in your face to subdue movement. Botox injections temporarily paralyze the facial nerves and make your skin appear smoother and tighter. The treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while stopping new ones from developing.
While Botox and other injectables are simple, minimally invasive treatments, you still need to have them appropriately administered. For optimal results, you should have your Botox injections provided by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
The Importance of How Your Botox Is Administered
Botox is not a surgical procedure, but having your injections administered by a highly trained surgeon presents certain advantages. The first is that plastic surgeons have an enhanced understanding of the facial structure and can determine the most precise locations to place your injections. A board-certified surgeon will administer injections in areas where fine lines and wrinkles are most likely to develop, helping you make the most of your treatment.
Another benefit to having a board-certified surgeon provide your Botox is how your results will look. Plastic surgeons emphasize achieving natural-looking results with all of their procedures, even non-surgical ones.
Botox can produce exaggerated or artificial-looking results when administered inappropriately or too vigorously. A board-certified surgeon will carefully place your Botox injections in a way that maintains your natural appearance but gives you a more youthful look.
Botox and other injectables are often performed as a supplement to plastic surgical procedures like facelifts. This is another reason it is beneficial to have a surgeon provide your injectable treatment. When performed in conjunction with facelift surgery, strategically placed Botox injections can complement the surgical procedure and produce an even more impactful and balanced aesthetic outcome.
