How Does BOTOX(R) Work?

Facial Aesthetics is ready to help if you’re looking for dramatic facial rejuvenation in Denver. BOTOX(R) is one of the most popular and well-known treatment options that we offer, but there are still a lot of misconceptios surrounding it. As such, it’s a good idea to offer a brief primer on just how this treatment works.

Wrinkles are essentially caused by the contractions of your facial muscles. These contractions, in turn, are the result of signals sent by your nerves to the muscles.

BOTOX(R) is a safe, medically engineered version of the botulinum toxin. And it works quite simply: by blocking the signals your nerves send to your muscles.

By blocking the signals, BOTOX prevents your muscles from contracting. That prevents the formation of wrinkles. The end result is a Denver-area patient with a revitalized, youthful-looking face that has seen the signs of age and wear removed.

Results from BOTOX will eventually wear off and your muscles will begin receiving contraction signals from your nerves. This usually takes between three and six months, though the precise timeline depends on the unique circumstances of each patient.

The doctors at Facial Aesthetics will answer all of your questions about BOTOX and help you understand what you can expect from the procedure.

If you live in the Denver, Colorado area and you’re considering BOTOX, please contact Facial Aesthetics today for a consultation.
