What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable aesthetic treatment comprised of botulinum toxin and is most commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of repeated muscle contractions due to repetitive facial expressions like squinting, smiling, and frowning. Botox® softens the appearance of these facial wrinkles by blocking chemical signals from the nerves and temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. The results of Botox® injections can last for up to four months.
Advantages of Botox®
- Quick treatment sessions
- Customizable treatment plans
- Little to no downtime
- High patient satisfaction
What can I expect during a treatment session?
We use a fine needle to inject Botox® directly into the facial muscles in the designated treatment area. Injection sessions typically last between 15 and 20 minutes and have minimal discomfort associated with them. At the patient’s request, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area prior to an injection session to further reduce any discomfort. This is a minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment and has little to no downtime associated with it. Patients are typically able to return to their normal activities immediately following an injection session.
When will I see results?
You will begin to see a noticeable improvement in the treated area within 24 to 48 hours of an injection session. The final results of Botox® injections are typically visible within two weeks of an injection session with potential continued improvement for up to one month. The results of this aesthetic treatment can last for up to four months. Results may vary.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience mild swelling, bruising, tenderness, or discomfort at the injection site. These are temporary side effects and typically subside within one week of an injection session.
Am I a candidate?
Botox® is an acceptable treatment for men and women looking to combat the visible effects of aging and improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. During your consultation, we will review your general health, medical history, and desired results of treatment and create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
We also offer Dysport® injectable treatments as an alternative to Botox® Cosmetic. Dysport® is also an injectable form of botulinum toxin and helps smooth dynamic wrinkles for up to six months.
