Botox® is the most popular cosmetic injection in the United States. If you’re looking for a way to refresh your look for all those holiday parties, Botox makes the best choice. Click here to learn more.

The holidays are a busy time, filled with friends, family, and festivities. Are you ready?

We know you want to look and feel your best this holiday season, which is why we think it’s the ideal time to refresh your look with Botox®.

At Legacy Health and Wellness, our highly skilled physician, Dr. Ifeoma Ogbonna, specializes in aesthetics, providing Botox injections to restore a more youthful look.

Here, we want to tell you all about Botox and how it can refresh your holiday party look.

How Botox works

Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. Every year, millions of people turn to Botox to treat their:

  • Frown lines (creases in between the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles at the outer corner of the eyes)
  • Worry lines (forehead wrinkles)

Botox specifically treats dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines and creases that form because of repetitive facial expressions. When you frown or squint, your facial muscles contract, causing the skin to bunch together. 

Over time (and because of the age-related changes to your skin that make it less resilient), the repeated folding of your skin by your facial expressions creates permanent, etched-in lines. 

Botox works by temporarily stopping the muscle contractions that cause the bunching of your skin, giving it time to relax and naturally smooth itself out. 

Treatment is quick

We know time is tight during the holidays, and that’s one of the reasons Botox is the ideal beauty treatment. Injections are quick. We can have you in and out in less than an hour. 

And there’s no downtime, so you can get back to your usual routine right away. You can even apply makeup to cover up any red marks that the needle makes. 

We do, though, request you wait at least two hours before engaging in strenuous aerobic activity to prevent bruising. 

Results are predictable and subtle

One of the reasons so many people use Botox to refresh their face is because it provides predictable and subtle results. 

You might see improvements in your look within a day or two, but expect full results within 30 days. Botox lasts about three to four months, and you can repeat the injections as soon as you notice the reappearance of wrinkles. 

You may worry that Botox might make you look unnatural or frozen. But when you get Botox injections from a trained professional like Dr. Ogbonna, you can expect to look like you, only better. Results are noticeable, but subtle when professionally done. 

For those looking for a more dramatic change, we may suggest combining Botox injections with fillers. Fillers are gel-like injections that restore volume under your skin, filling in lines and creases.
