Botox

This treatment is used to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines in people within the ages of 18-65. Many other wrinkle treatment injections have been developed after Botox was approved by the FDA and launched in the market in 2002, but Botox Cosmetic is still the treatment of choice for millions of people and doctors around the world. This revolutionary treatment produces results within days of receiving the injections and may last for months before additional injections are required for maintenance.

Our Botox Cosmetic Treatment

Botox Cosmetic is a great solution for people who want smoother, younger looking skin without having to undergo surgery or other invasive treatments. The FDA has approved the use of Botox Cosmetic for people within the ages of 18-65, but it is ultimately the physician who will administer the injection and who will decide if a potential patient is a good candidate or not, based on the person’s medical history which is discussed during the consultation.

Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein which is created by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The botulinum toxin decreases the activity of the muscles that causes undesirable frown lines to form. Botox Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles under the treatment area. The protein blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles injected with Botox Cosmetic resulting in reduced muscle activity causing the formation of lines in the treatment area. It is important to answer our questions as accurately as possible during the consultation to make sure that you are a good candidate in order to avoid serious side effects during and after the procedure.

What to Expect During and After Our Botox Cosmetic Treatment

Our Botox Cosmetic treatment itself is a quick and easy procedure with brief and minimal discomfort. The procedure can be done with or without topical anesthetics depending on the patient’s pain tolerance. Administering a few tiny injections on the treatment area takes only ten minutes and improvements can be seen in only a matter of days. The effects of Botox Cosmetic injections have been proven to last for months after which injections should be administered again to maintain the effects of the treatment. Downtime after the treatment is very minimal and patients can resume normal activity after receiving Botox Cosmetic injections. After the injection, patients may feel a bit of discomfort and pain at the site of the injection, dry mouth, tiredness, and a few minor side effects. Similar to any treatment requiring injection, it is possible to develop an infection, so it’s best to keep the injection site clean until it heals. There are more possible side effects to this procedure ranging from mild to serious and we will discuss them with you entirely during the consultation process.

Like any other cosmetic treatment, there are risks involved with the Botox Cosmetic Treatment. This is why we schedule a consultation to discuss the risks and answer all the questions you may have about the procedure.
