If you are seeking a treatment that can help turn back the hands of time to reveal smooth youthful skin, then Botox treatment may be right for you. Botox is a minimally invasive treatment to help firm, tighten, and smooth out fine line and wrinkles. This treatment is highly effective, and is a great alternative to surgery. There is no preparation required, and patients can return to their normal routine directly aftertreatment.
Botox is composed of a botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein that relaxes the muscles. This helps to reduce movement, and prevents and smooths out fine lines or wrinkles. Botox blocks a signal from the nerve to the targeted muscle, and this prevents the muscle from contracting. Botox is typically used on the forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines above the nose, and the area between your eyes, or glabellar lines.
Results with Botox can be seen in about a week after treatment. Most patients will notice results between 7-10 days after their appointment. Results will last between 3-12 months depending on the amount of Botox used, and the severity of the wrinkles in the treatment areas. The length of time Botox lasts can vary per patient, and you may notice Botox will last longer after your second treatment. Botox is temporary, and multiple treatments are required to maintain the desired results, and keep your skin wrinkle free.
During your appointment we will discuss the areas you wish to target and develop a customized treatment plan. Our team will cleanse your face and may apply a numbing cream if needed to help keep you comfortable. The injections will then be performed in the target areas to help smooth and reduce any fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients may notice redness or small bumps around the injection site, but these should go away after a day or so. Mild bruising is common and that should also subside between 24-48 hours after your treatment. Our team will give you instructions on what you can do or not do after your treatment. Most patients can return to their normal routine directly after their appointment.
