Erase Wrinkles And Deep Lines With Botox
As we age, we all develop wrinkles here and there – but we don’t necessarily have to live with them. Botox Cosmetic is a botulinum toxin (essentially a purified protein), that can be injected into the muscles in the forehead and between the brows to relax and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It is virtually painless, and can be administered in as little as 10 minutes, for quic, but noticeable results.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by impeding nerve impulses so that the muscles in the treated areas stay relatively relaxed. This reduction in movement will help keep wrinkles and lines from making themselves known, without taking away your ability to make natural facial expressions.
How Many Units Will I Need?
Dosage can depend upon the area being treated, the strength of the muscles, and other factors, so the amount of units needed varies from person to person. During your consultation, our experienced professionals will evaluate your needs and give you a dosage range.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Although the product begins to work within 24-48 hours of treatment, it can take up to two weeks before true results are seen, with continued improvement for up to one full month. That’s why we make it a priority to schedule follow up appointments with each patient two weeks after the product is administered. Scheduling a follow up appointment allows us to make any tweaks or add any additional units needed, while maintaining natural-looking results.
What Is Recovery Like?
Because Botox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, there is no recovery time involved. Some patients experience bruising or bleeding, but most patients can typically go on with their day without giving away their secret.
How Long Does Botox Last?
A single Botox treatment can last up to 4 months, although longevity varies from person to person.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox Cosmetic has been used in aesthetic procedures for over 10 years, and was the “first FDA-approved botulinum toxin to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18 to 65.” When injected by a trained and experienced professional, Botox is incredibly safe and harmless. However, allergic reactions and contraindications can occur, so be sure to discuss this with our professionals prior to injection.
How Will I Know If Botox Is Right For Me?
To determine whether or not Botox is right for you, it is important that you discuss all of your medical conditions, allergies, and medication uses with the treatment professional. An allergic reaction or contraindication can occur, regardless of whether or not you’ve experienced problems with other botulinum toxin products in the past. Be sure to be as thorough as possible when discussing your health and future health-related plans prior to the injection — we want to ensure that all of our patients achieve healthy and beautiful results.
