Why Botox Is the Best Cosmetic Tool for Long-Term Wrinkle Reduction

Are the effects of aging making you feel self-conscious about your appearance? You might want to consider Botox®. It's a popular cosmetic treatment that reduces wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes. With continued use, the effects of Botox can last long-term and help you feel more confident.

At Pure Touch Laser Center, with locations in Glendale and Sherman Oaks, CA, our highly experienced medical team –  we have a physician and over 12 registered nurses — can enhance your appearance with Botox and other minimally invasive cosmetic treatments.

Botox has been around the longest

Botox has been FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes since 2002. As a result, there are nearly two decades of tried-and-true results.  

Botox is considered safe for anyone over the age of 18. Whether you want to get rid of crow’s feet or prevent them from forming in the first place, chances are, Botox is right for you.

Over the years, our team has helped hundreds of patients look and feel their best. We trust Botox and have the experience and training to give you natural-looking results.

Botox treatments are quick and effective

On average, your Botox appointments last between 15-20 minutes. That said, it takes a day or two to see results. Depending on your needs, age, and other variables, the effects of Botox injections usually last between three and six months. This means you may only need to get the treatment two to four times a year. 

If you use Botox regularly, the effects will last longer and you won't need as many appointments. This makes paying for Botox, as well as scheduling your treatments, much easier than a cosmetic tool that requires monthly upkeep.

Botox injections aren’t painful — you don’t need anesthesia, which makes it much safer than other options. You can stop receiving injections at any time without abnormal sagging or wrinkling.

Botox treatments slow down the aging process 

Keep in mind, you'll still need consistent treatments to maintain the youthful appearance Botox provides. That said, regular use of Botox can drastically slow down the aging process. For example, people who receive Botox injections long-term experience a change in their muscles that causes them to make less “aggressive” expressions. As your facial muscles stay relaxed, the skin covering them also releases any folds or wrinkles. 

Some studies show that patients who have Botox for more than 10 years look visibly younger than those without. Botox can also prevent new wrinkles from forming, which makes it a popular therapy with young adults who don’t want wrinkles to form in the first place.
