23 May Am I a Candidate for BOTOX?
Administered professionally, BOTOX® provides a refreshed, relaxed, and more youthful facial appearance. It enhances your facial features and helps to prevent pesky lines and wrinkles from developing in the treatment area. This is why it has become one of the most popular types of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. The treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles found on the forehead, between the eyes, crow’s feet, and other locations.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a treatment that is delivered into the skin via injection. This product is carefully prepared within a laboratory under strict, controlled conditions. The treatment has a record of safety spanning decades. In addition to its cosmetic uses, injections have helped many people suffering from medical issues as well.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. This prevents nerve transmissions from the brain to the affected muscle so that it cannot contract. The treatment will eventually wear off, and touch-ups will be needed for the maintenance of results.
Is BOTOX® the Same as Facial Fillers?
Other than the fact that the treatment is delivered via injection to reduce wrinkles, there is little similarity between the two treatments. While facial fillers work by enhancing facial volume or hydration, BOTOX® reduces the activity of facial muscles that create dynamic wrinkles.
What Happens at a Consultation?
During your initial consultation, we will discuss with you what your needs and goals are regarding your treatment and guide your expectations so that you achieve the best possible result. We will then form a unique treatment plan that helps you achieve your goals. This is also an opportunity to ask any remaining questions so that you have a complete understanding of the treatment process and what is involved.
When Will I Notice Results?
Patients typically begin noticing results in the days after their BOTOX® injections, but it may take as long as a week or two for optimal results. Most patients enjoy results that can last for multiple months. In time, you may notice some return of wrinkles in the treatment area. Follow-up treatments are designed to be quick and convenient.
