An estimated 42 muscles in the face that are constantly in motion, reshaping and molding our skin with contortions, eventually begin to form wrinkles that can be anything from fine lines to deeply folded skin. Thankfully, Dr. Balaji Srinivasan is an expert in anti-aging therapies such as Botox for wrinkles at Aesthetic Dental Creations in Jackson, New Jersey.
For over 20 years, Botox has been used by millions of patients to restore their youthful appearance using a revolutionary formula designed to address wrinkles ingeniously. While many skincare creams and treatments try to address wrinkles by focusing on facial skin, Botox takes a different approach by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.
The injections block signals sent from your nerves to your muscles, which limit muscle contractions in the injected areas. This treatment allows your facial muscles to remain soft and relaxed, which gives your skin a much smoother, more vibrant, and youthful appearance.
Each Botox treatment takes 10-15 minutes, depending on how many areas you have treated. The procedure is relatively painless, and the results tend to last for around three months, with a few patients reporting longer-lasting benefits.
Botox has also been shown to have a residual effect on the skin after repeated treatments, almost like retraining your skin to look younger.
The main ingredient in Botox is a toxin known as botulinum. Contrary to persistent rumors, this FDA-approved treatment does not infect people with botulism since it’s only a purified protein that reduces and limits muscle activity. In other words, Botox does not contain live bacteria.
Also, Botox does not cause the skin to become overly tightened, as many tend to believe with rumors of the “frozen face” myth. Botox only relaxes the muscles beneath your skin, allowing your features to relax, which smoothens your skin.
