What is Botox?
The continued use of facial expressions and the gradual loss of collagen from the face give rise to prominent wrinkles that make you look older. Botox injections work underneath the skin to reduce the muscle contractions responsible for your unwanted expression lines. This can soften your facial features, suppressing the fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Botox also prevents wrinkles from developing, helping you retain your youthful features.
How does Botox work?
Dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines, appear on your face because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing and frowning. Botox is a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin type A, which blocks the transmission of signals from nerve endings to the targeted muscles. When injected underneath the facial skin, Botox temporarily paralyzes targeted facial muscles, thereby suppressing the associated wrinkles.
While the facial muscles are temporarily “frozen,” skilled injectors can help you maintain natural facial expressions. That’s why you must select providers who select the ideal dosage and inject them correctly to soften the wrinkles without freezing your expressions. Genesis Lifestyle Medicine is led by incredibly talented injectors who ensure soft, subtle, and natural-looking results with wrinkle relaxers in Salt Lake City. Each treatment is strategically curated according to your needs.
Your Botox treatment
You’ll have to stop taking blood-thinning medications one week before the procedure to reduce the risk of post-treatment bruising. During the treatment, the cosmetic provider will cleanse your face and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort, if necessary. Our medical professional will inject the ideal Botox dose into targeted areas on your face using an ultrafine needle. We may ask you to make certain facial expressions to help the Botox settle in place. The procedure concludes within 15 minutes.

In most cases, the results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you’ll need to repeat the treatment to maintain the results. However, your cosmetic provider will offer tips and strategies to increase the treatment’s longevity.
