ABOUT BOTOX INJECTIONS
This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to static lines, which are made from expressive movement from the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily does not allow the movements of the facial muscles. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX is injected, which smoothens the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly positioned between the eyebrows, the Crow’s feet, and across the forehead. BOTOX is great for individuals who desire to soften the noticeability of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventative treatment, as well, even if you do not show signs of aging, but you find yourself making facial expressions. It’s a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It’s also a great treatment for the area of lines around the eyes.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After the procedure, patients can get back to their regular routine, however, strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. Patients are also asked to sleep with their head elevated for the first night and to not touch their face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days after the procedure, although most patients will not develop any lasting or serious side effects from injectable treatments. In many patients, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who receive BOTOX for the first time, are so happy after their treatment and excited after seeing their results that we almost always continue to see them every few months for their touch-ups. We enjoy having our
patients return each time as we become a partner in helping them keep their face looking and feeling rejuvenated and smooth!
