What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that temporarily reduces wrinkles and lines for a more youthful appearance. The active ingredient in Botox is bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which is a natural substance found in lakes, oceans, and soil. 

When injected into targeted areas of your skin, the substance prevents facial movement by blocking the nerve signals that cause your muscles to contract and skin to fold. 

Botox is most commonly used for facial lines and wrinkles, but if you want to plump your skin in areas where you’ve lost volume with age, like sunken eyes and cheeks, you’ll need dermal fillers. 

AIM Wellness specializes in anti-aging treatments such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for age-related hormonal problems. If you haven’t been feeling like your best self lately, the practice can help rejuvenate your entire health, treating both your cosmetic and medical concerns. 

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox treatment involves several steps of quality control. Your AIM Wellness provider can help you determine the most beneficial number of injections.  

Other benefits of getting Botox include: 

  • Little to no downtime required 
  • Minimally invasive cosmetic treatment 
  • Only mild, temporary side effects
  • Improved confidence in yourself 
  • Natural and beautiful results 

Botox is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment, so rather than undergoing an invasive procedure, such as a face-lift, it can help you achieve a younger-looking appearance without extensive planning and downtime.

How long does Botox results last?

If you take the right steps for aftercare and follow all of your provider’s instructions, your results should last between four months to six months*. A good skin care regimen in place can significantly enhance your outcomes.

Each Botox injection appointment lasts roughly 15 minutes or less, and you’ll notice the improvements in your look within a couple days.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Although Botox is generally very safe and well-tolerated by most patients, it isn’t right for everyone. AIM Wellness can help decide to move forward with the procedure if you have realistic expectations and want a nonsurgical wrinkle reduction treatment.

Botox has many advantages over its competitors. To find out how it can make you look your best, make an appointment at AIM Wellness, by calling the office or booking online today. *Individual results may vary
