If you are looking for a cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the formation of other lines on your face, our aesthetic experts may recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX can also be used for a number of other medical purposes. Based on your specific needs, we may suggest BOTOX to reduce migraine headaches, TMJ muscle spasm, or to lessen excessive sweating of the underarms and palms of the hands.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX is a cosmetic injectable that works by temporarily (usually 3-4 months) freezing your facial muscles to improve your appearance. This works by weakening or temporarily freezing the muscles into which it is injected. When these muscles cannot move, the wrinkles on your skin are reduced. This cosmetic treatment is excellent for reducing the furrows between the brows (“the elevens”), as well as crows’ feet (the lines at the corners of the eyes when you smile and squint).
This procedure can also reduce the neck bands (platysmal bands) that occur with age. As well as the vertical lines that appear around the mouth, especially when you “pucker” your face.
How Safe Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX is very safe when injected by experienced physicians, such as our BOTOX experts at Skintology Medical Spa. Dr. Jennifer Walden is proud to be a black diamond level BOTOX provider, the highest tier status. Her team of amazing and talented injectors will evaluate you and recommend what is best for you before the treatment.
How Long Until I See Results From Botox?
You should see results within a few days of your initial treatment. You will likely see results two to four days after injection, with the maximum effect occurring at about 10-14 days and lasting for up to three months. Over time, results can be maintained with continued injections.
How Long Do Botox Injections Take?
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes, perfect for a busy individual.
How Long Do The Results of BOTOX Last?
You can expect the results of your treatment to last up to three months.
Are There Any Side Effects?
BOTOX rarely has any side effects. The vast majority of patients can receive this treatment without complication. Possible side effects include dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site. In addition to some tiredness, headache, neck pain, eye problems, and allergic reactions.
