What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX Cosmetic® is an injectable sterile protein solution that reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. This solution blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles causing them to relax and thereby gives the skin a more smooth and refreshed appearance.
This treatment offers a number of advantages for women and men seeking wrinkle reduction. BOTOX is a trusted therapeutic treatment used by millions for over 21 years. Some benefits include:
- No downtime
- Short appointment time
- Allows for natural movement
- Results last 3 to 4 months, and even longer with repeated use
What can I expect during my Botox appointment?
An appointment to inject botox takes approximately 10min. Your doctor will listen to your concerns and desires and consult where and why certain injections are recommended. A tiny needle used in conjunction with topical anesthetic, if needed, is used to lessen any discomfort during the procedure.
How long does Botox Last?
Patients usually see results last 3-4 months before another treatment is necessary to maintain the results. After several treatments, the effects often begin to last longer.
Will my face feel different after the treatment?
Since the treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the line at the injection site, it has no effect on other elements of facial expression. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, allowing for normal feeling in the treated areas.
Are There Side Effects?
There is no permanent side effect known with BOTOX® therapy for facial wrinkles. However, there are several temporary side effects which can occur including:
- Bruising and pain at the site of injection
- Eyebrow or eyelid droop: This is seen in less than 1% of patients receiving BOTOX® therapy. It usually only lasts 2 to 4 weeks, and is mild.
