Botox in Ottawa is perhaps the most commonly used anti-ageing treatment. Both men and women popularly use it to eliminate fine lines and deep wrinkles and restore a youthful-looking appearance.
How the treatment works
Your face has several muscles that contract when you cry, smile, eat, raise an eyebrow, or make any facial expression. As time goes by, these contractions result in fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The Botox treatment, which comes in the form of an injection, has got compounds that prevent facial muscles from contracting. This is what eliminates deep wrinkles and results in a softer and firmer facial appearance.
How frequently should you get Botox injections?
Botox injections are like any other medical injections. They only work for some time and then their effects dissipate. To be precise, they prevent the contraction of facial muscles for only a couple of months and then their effects dissipate. So after a couple of months of getting Botox treatments, your old wrinkles and fine lines will start creeping back. This is why Botox injections have to be given regularly to make wrinkles stay away permanently. The period of time it takes for Botox injections to dissipate depends on the number of units of the injection given and how they are given. This is why it is important to get Botox injections from professional medical experts.
How often should you refill your Botox?
As mentioned, you have to take regular Botox injections to keep fine lines and wrinkles away. Normally, most people have to refill their Botox every 3 to 4 months. However, exactly how long will depend on how your face reacts with the treatment. This is why it is key to work with a qualified medical professional who can use their knowledge and experience to create for you the perfect treatment place for your situation.
