Fine lines and wrinkles can be a problem even if they are not medically harmful. They can make you feel self-conscious and less confident in yourself. They can also make you appear older than you really are. Botox injections in central Georgia can give you a more youthful appearance without the crow’s feet and frown lines that you dislike.
Fine wrinkles and lines can develop with aging as you lose collagen in your face. They can also result from sun exposure, frowning and squinting over periods of years, and harmful chemicals called free radicals in the environment. Botox injections can make the results of these processes less visible.
What to Expect with Treatment
Botox is a prescription medication that you receive through injections near the target site. Each treatment takes less than an hour. The doctor can numb the area with ice before the injections. You will receive five injections in your head for frown lines, and three injections near each eye for crow’s feet.
You usually do not need to schedule time off work or away from regular activities. The results are most noticeable within five days after treatment, and last for several months. Possible side effects include eyelid drooping, headaches, and blurred vision.
