At Cassie Lane Aesthetics, our team serves men and women in the area who want to improve their appearance without plastic surgery. While facelifts, browlifts, and body procedures can provide dramatic results, not everyone is a good candidate. Those with mild signs of aging may find an invasive surgery unnecessary. Instead, it is encouraged that you consider more conservative treatment methods until surgery is your only option. This is why Cassie Lane may suggest cosmetic injections such as Botox to reduce the appearance of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
Cassie Lane of Richmond, Virginia, describes Botox injections as a way to cosmetically enhance one’s appearance. Botox is a neuromodulator formulated with a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, an active ingredient derived from bacteria. Botox is injected directly into muscles to relax them and reduce wrinkles. It works by stopping the nerve signals that result in the contraction of facial muscles that create lines and wrinkles.
Regular treatments can help “fill in” existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming or deepening over time. When administered properly, Botox can improve the appearance of forehead furrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, brow drooping, neck bands, bunny lines on the nose, chin dimpling, and more.
Botox injection results are not seen immediately but rather over the course of several days. Most will see final changes in about a week. The results of Botox typically last for three to six months before gradually fading as muscle action resumes its normal pattern of contraction. To maintain the results, we often encourage patients to see Cassie Lane every few months for reinjection to keep their youthful look!
There are many reasons you may consider Botox compared to other cosmetic injectables or plastic surgery.
Whether you are looking for Botox injections for forehead wrinkles or smoothing crow’s feet, Cassie Lane has you covered!
