Botox injections are some of the world’s most popular non-surgical treatments for smile lines, frown lines, eleven lines, and other signs of aging. But did you know that there are long-term benefits of Botox? The best Botox treatments can offer you some perks that just might surprise you!

Longer Lasting Results

Doctors have found that regular use of Botox can actually start to weaken the targeted muscles in your face, or the muscles into which you have Botox injected to prevent expression lines. This muscle weakening isn’t a bad thing — it’s actually an amazing perk. The more you have Botox injected–up to a safe maximum per year, as a Botox specialist will inform you–the longer each treatment will last. Eventually, weakened facial muscles will no longer form frown lines or other lines of expression that make you look older. The more it’s applied, the better the retention and duration of the effects.

Elimination of Wrinkles

Repeated treatments of Botox injections provide even more long-term benefits. Botox can actually start to improve your static wrinkles, the professional term for thin wrinkles that appear even when your face is relaxed, like under-eye wrinkles. Over time, the gradual weakening of facial muscles can lead to partial inactivity behind static wrinkles. That’s because the skin atop inactive muscles won’t crease as dramatically. Overall, this leads to a gradual loss of the static wrinkles that can make you look older. And while some people combine facial treatments–Botox for expression lines, other injectables like Juvederm fillers for static wrinkles–eventually, Botox can start to improve both types of facial aging.

Habitual Changes

Then there are the benefits that you enact upon yourself. Believe it or not, regular use of Botox injections can influence the way that you move and express with your face. Over time, you’ll get used to the partial paralysis of your facial muscles, and will adjust your habits. For example, if you happen to frown when you speak or concentrate, Botox injections can help you break this habit that may have caused your frown lines in the first place.

Generally, changing your facial expression habits can prevent you from making expression lines worse, and can even stop you from forming them in the first place. One popular reason why many people get Botox injections as young adults is to prevent lines of expression like eleven lines–the vertical lines between your eyes that furrow your brow–from developing at all. This means that Botox can actually keep your face looking younger for longer!

It’s important to know that the immediate effects of individual Botox treatments only last for about 3 to 4 months. After this time, the temporarily paralytic muscles in your face will begin to contract again. When that happens, visit Manhattan Skin & Laser Center.
