Wrinkles and fine can significantly affect your physical appearance by making you appear more tired and older than you are. Although you cannot eliminate aging signs for good, you can delay them and enjoy your youthfulness for longer. The providers at Wrinkle understand your desire to maintain your attractive appearance, and they help you achieve this using Botox Oakbrook Terrace injections.

What is Botox?

Botox injections contain a toxin known as onobotulinumtoxinA that prevents the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by limiting muscle movement. The toxin prevents communication between your muscles and motor nerves. It temporarily halts targeted muscles from flexing either voluntarily or involuntarily. Wrinkle Fairy offers Botox injections as part of your treatment plan to restore your youthfulness.

Dr. Leslie has years of experience in delaying signs of aging, and while working her magic, she ensures that you don’t appear expressionless or frozen. She focuses on giving you natural, long-lasting results. Before your procedure, you can opt to get a topic anesthetic or not. The anesthetic ensures that you are relaxed and do not experience any discomfort during the procedure.

After your treatment, you may notice side effects such as redness and mild swelling, which disappear after a short period. Your provider may give you medication to control your side effects without harming yourself. Botox injections don’t require downtime and so you can resume school or work immediately after your treatment.

What imperfections does Botox address?

Botox injections can address a wide range of facial insecurities. Wrinkle Fairy focuses on enhancing your looks and helping you achieve your beauty expectations. Some of the issues Botox addresses include:

  • Droopy eyebrows

Droopy eyebrows are an inevitable sign of aging that can make you look sad, tired, or older than you are. A Botox brow lift can rectify your tired-looking face to a vibrant and attractive face.

  • Fine lines

Fine lines include frown lines and crow’s feet which result from repeated expressions and facial movements. They are visible even when you are not flexible in your facial muscles. Botox prevents these muscles from flexing, smoothing out, and eliminating wrinkles for an extended period.

  • Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for profuse sweating. If excessive sweating the under armpits of your shirt, embarrassing you, Botox injections can help you by disabling your sweat glands.

How many Botox treatments do you need?

Botox results usually last for about 4-6 months; afterward, your sweat glands may begin functioning normally, and your wrinkles may start reappearing. However, if your muscles start training to function less, your results may last longer than four months. This makes it essential to associate closely with your provider, who monitors how well your facial muscles respond to treatment.

Botox injections are safe and effective if the provider is board-certified and has adequate experience. After your treatment, your doctor may advise against massaging the treatment site for 24 hours to avoid the spread of the toxin to other parts. Depending on the issue being treated, you can expect dramatic results one to three days after your treatment.
