Botox Can Take Years Off Your Face
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, but it doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it.
Were you a tanning bed junkie in your youth? Couldn’t get enough of that beach glow during those summer months? While you know you looked great at the moment, you may be regretting all that time spent out in the sun now that you’re older. While you may be lathering up that SPF 60 and wearing hats and protective clothing when you go out, unfortunately the sun has already done some damage. If you’re looking to get more youthful-looking skin without going through extensive, painful or expensive treatments, Botox Cosmetic treatment could be the right option for you. You’ll be amazed at how Botox can turn back the hands of time.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic procedure that injects acetylcholine into your skin to stop muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. This reduction in muscle activity also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What does Botox treat?
Botox is the only FDA-approved product that can correct moderate to severe frown lines, wrinkles between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet.
What are the benefits of getting Botox?
One of the biggest and most obvious benefits is that Botox greatly reduces the appearance of wrinkles. You will start to notice results within one to two days, with maximum results showing at around 30 days.
Are there any disadvantages?
After treatment, a small percentage of patients experience eyelid drooping or swelling. Other side effects of this treatment include dry mouth, headaches, neck pain, pain at the injection site, dry eyes and allergic reactions. If you experience any of these symptoms, call our office.
What should I expect during my Botox treatment?
Getting Botox is quick and easy. When the Botox is injected you may feel a slight pinch. If you have any concern about discomfort during the treatment, let us know. We can apply a numbing cream to the injection sites prior to treatment. There will be a series of injections depending on which areas of the face we are targeting. However, the injections only take about 10 minutes. Plus, there is really no downtime so you can return to your normal routine after treatment.
Who is Botox not right for?
Women who are pregnant or nursing should not get Botox. Also, let us know if have any muscle or nerve disorders like myasthenia gravis or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Be sure to tell us if you are taking any medications, vitamins or herbal supplements. Also, if you’ve had facial surgery in the past, we want to know about it.
Just because you bathed in the sun when you were younger doesn’t mean you have to live with wrinkles now. Botox can give you the results you’re looking for fast. Call our office to find out more about this cosmetic treatment.
