How Can Botox Make You Look Younger?

These days are abundant with products and solutions that promise to make you look younger. From natural remedies to over-the-counter creams, there are plenty of things you can try to gain back your youthful vigor. While practicing good health and taking care of your skin are vital for helping with the signs of aging, these measures will only do so much. ROGA is pleased to offer a variety of products that are proven to make a noticeable difference in your appearance. BOTOX helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles in many different areas.

What is Botox?

Botox is part of a group of products known as neuromodulators. Botox and similar brands such as Xeomin and Dysport are FDA-approved to treat wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, brows, forehead, and neck. The cosmetic injection blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, thereby paralyzing them and making it difficult for wrinkles to form since the muscles are less active. Over time, however, the muscles regain their movement, so regular treatment is required to get the results you desire.

Types of wrinkles Botox treats

Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (around the eyes), and frown lines that form around the mouth. It is used to treat wrinkles known as dynamic wrinkles, which result from the contraction of muscles that are attached to overlying skin. When Botox is used in these areas, the skin appear smoother. The volume that is lost in the skin as we age does not show as readily.

Treatment and recovery

The procedure is quick and performed right in the ROGA office. It requires almost no downtime—you will be free to return to work following treatment. The great thing about Botox is that results are fast, typically seen within 72 hours; however, full benefits won’t generally show for up to 2-3 weeks. Though there may be pain and swelling at the injection site, Botox has minimal side effects otherwise.
