The Center For Aesthetics Explains Botox And How It Works

Idaho Falls, Idaho: The highly trained practitioners at the Center for Aesthetics, receive many questions regarding how Botox works. To best serve their community, they produced a new blog post to help explain how Botox works. CFA uses state-of-the-art technology to provide a wide range of treatment options tailored to their patient's concerns. See their advanced and proprietary aesthetic medicine services here:

CFA stated, “There are several misconceptions around Botox, and many wonder if Botox works if you already have wrinkles, the answer is a resounding YES. In fact, smoothing out facial wrinkles and fine lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines is the primary FDA-approved purpose of Botox injections.”


They go on to say, Botox is a fully tried-and-tested procedure it has been researched for over 20 years and is the only product in its category with this level of scientific backing. The safety and efficacy of Botox have been described in more than 500 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

As The Center for Aesthetics explains, there are several reasons why lines and wrinkles develop on the face. A reduction in collagen or sun and environmental damage is partially responsible for it, but muscle contractions generated by frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the skin to furrow and fold as well, thus leading to the formation of facial wrinkles.

Botox is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles of the face that cause unwanted lines. Injecting it into specific muscles will block specific chemical signals from nerves, preventing muscles from contracting. This will, in turn, reduce wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead because the muscles in those areas remain relaxed. CFA emphasizes that neuromodulators have been used in medicine for over 30 years and are proven to be very safe.

Botox is quick and unintrusive, having minimal to no downtime after the procedure is done. While there may be some minor bruising after the injections, it will fade away quickly. Results from the procedure will be visible within 4-14 days, and they will last for 3-4 months. The procedure can be repeated regularly to maintain the results.

CFA says, “We have been performing Botox procedures for over 20 years, and we have set the standard for these treatments. Unlike many other med spas providing this service, our providers are experienced, board-certified Physician Assistants and Medical Doctors.”

The Center for Aesthetics does point out that Botox treatments are not a permanent solution to wrinkles; if and when the treatments are stopped, the moderate to severe lines and crow’s feet will gradually reappear. However, they can be treated with Botox once more without any issues. Since Botox is approved for patients who are 18 years and older, Botox can also be used as a preventative measure to ensure that early, fine lines do not transform into severe wrinkles.

Experts agree that patients in their mid to late 20s and early 30s are excellent candidates for the procedure. Since most people are unlikely to have enough wrinkles to be concerned about prior to their late 20s, there is no need for Botox before this stage of their lives. The Center for Aesthetics assures that Botox is a great option despite the age of the individual in question and that it can even work to suppress advanced signs of aging. CFA also offers advanced treatments, pairing Botox with dermal fillers and skin treatments such as lasers, tixel, and microneedling for more dramatic results.
