Are you troubled by wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes, or above and below your lips? Botox® can be used to diminish these signs of aging and give you a more youthful appearance.
As we age and our skin becomes thinner and loses its volume, wrinkles become more prominent. Botox® can help to smooth facial skin. This therapy may also prevent existing fine lines and wrinkles from deepening.
Botox® is an FDA-approved therapeutic agent derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A. It is injected into specific facial areas to block signals from the nerves to the muscles. It prevents the muscles from contracting and causing wrinkles.
Because the amount of botulinum toxin in each injection is so small, it won’t damage your nerves or muscles. Your facial expressions will still look natural, so you can keep smiling all day long.
If you’re getting Botox® for the first time, you will have an initial consultation with one of our specialists to discuss your medical history and any medications you may be taking. In this way, we can ensure that Botox® is a safe treatment for you. We will also review the facial areas you would like to have treated.
You can enjoy relaxing in the comfort and privacy of our clinic while we administer your Botox® treatment. Our specialist will apply a mild cleanser to your target areas. If you are concerned about discomfort, we can apply a topical numbing agent. The botulinum toxin is then injected directly into your specified facial muscles.
You may need one to three injections, depending on your desired results. Ice will be applied to the treated areas to minimize swelling. Typically, the procedure is completed within 20 minutes or less.
You will start noticing smoother-looking skin and a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles within 7-10 days. This timeline may vary slightly depending on your age, the elasticity of your skin, and the volume of your injection. Your new, youthful look will last for up to 5 months. You’ll be so pleased with the results of your first visit that you may wish to plan a consistent Botox® injection schedule. This will enable you to prolong your rejuvenated look and prevent the reappearance of wrinkles.
You are a good candidate for Botox® if you are at least 18 years old and are in good physical health. Though Botox® injections can’t turn back the clock, they can temporarily improve the signs of moderate to severe wrinkles.
Botox® injections may not be suitable if you are allergic to botulinum toxin products or you have a skin infection at the site of the injection. Botox® treatment is not recommended if you are pregnant or nursing or suffer from a neuromuscular disease such as myasthenia gravis or multiple sclerosis.
There is no downtime following Botox® injections. You may return to your regular daily routine straight away. Looking and feeling great. We recommend that you do not lie down for 2-4 hours after your procedure to avoid pressure on the treated areas. You may notice minor swelling or soreness at the injection sites, but this will quickly pass.
