Botox- The #1 cosmetic treatment in the world
We all deal with these unwanted lines, and as the years go by, they seem to appear faster and faster. This is the normal effect of repeatedly moving our facial muscles when we’re smiling, squinting or frowning. Dynamic lines are the creases we see when we make facial expressions. With all this movement, static lines are etched into our skin over time; these are the furrows that remain visible when the face is at rest. Although fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, simple treatments are available that can turn back the clock.
Among all the treatments for wrinkles, Botox® is the most popular, and for good reason. Botox® is a simple injection that freezes the facial muscles and quickly puts the brakes on the wrinkling process. Relaxation of these muscles prevents the movements that engrave lines into the face. When started early, Botox® can even prevent fine lines and wrinkles from developing.
While Botox® works best on dynamic lines, it can also help soften the appearance of static lines, especially when treatments are done at regular intervals. Treatments can be performed during your lunch break, and complete results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks. There’s a reason Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world — it’s simple, and it really works!
Which areas of the face can be treated with Botox®?
Botox® is excellent for lines and wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s-feet), as well as for frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox® can also minimize the appearance of lip lines, bunny lines (those little lines that appear when you laugh and wrinkle your nose), a dimpled chin, neck bands or a gummy smile. When artfully placed by our cosmetic staff, Botox® can even lift eyebrows.
Are there side effects?
Common side effects are bruising and swelling, which are both temporary. To minimize the risk of bruising, we advise avoiding blood thinning medications/supplements and alcohol prior to injections.
Do Botox® injections hurt?
Most patients feel a slight pinching sensation at the injection site, which passes quickly. To minimize discomfort during treatment, ice may be applied to the area prior to injections. We also provide a calm, relaxing environment and use stress balls and other techniques to keep our patients comfortable.
When will I see the results of Botox®?
Wrinkles begin to soften 3-5 days after treatment. The full effects of Botox® are seen 10-14 days after treatment.
How long do the results last?
The results last 3-4 months on average. After repeated treatments, the results can last even longer. As Botox® wears off, the treated lines will begin to reappear. Follow-up treatment can relax these muscles further, softening wrinkles more and more with each session. With regular treatments, frown lines and crow’s-feet start to melt away, as the muscles have been trained to relax. This is why many use Botox® as a “wrinkle preventive.”
How much does Botox® cost?
Botox® is a fraction of the cost of most surgical procedures, making it affordable and accessible to a broader range of people. The cost of Botox® treatment will vary depending on the number of areas treated and the severity of the lines in those areas. Our office maintains competitive pricing and provides discounts when a certain amount of product is used. Also, the manufacturer offers incentive programs, which we make available to our customers.
