BOTOX® is a popular cosmetic treatment used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Mature adults often lose skin elasticity because of a decrease in the production of collagen. Many individuals also experience a thinning of the facial skin as they age.
We promote BOTOX® treatment because it effectively smooths the skin without the need for abrasive resurfacing. An injectable procedure, BOTOX® is an in-patient cosmetic treatment that requires no special preparation on the part of the client.
There is also no downtime after the treatment, so the individual can get on with his or her busy schedule.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a muscle relaxing agent. When the solution is injected beneath the skin, the muscles are relaxed, which prevents them from contracting.
When the individual smiles or frowns, the skin lies more flat without constant folding that causes wrinkles. Wrinkles, crow’s feet, and smile lines become far less noticeable.
What the Procedure Involves
We sit down with our client and discuss the entire injection procedure. We map out the client’s face and determine the most suitable injection sites. We also give our patients realistic estimations on what the visible results will be.
The entire procedure can take only about 5-10 minutes, and full results are seen in 10-14 days. A fine needle is inserted beneath the skin at targeted locations. The muscles are relaxed immediately, and the client will not feel any sensation of numbness. Results last for up to six months.
Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment
BOTOX® is a preferred method of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles because there is no surgery or cosmetic skin resurfacing involved.
Some of the more modern methods of wrinkle reduction involve the use of heat waves, and many individuals are highly susceptible to skin rash or sunburn, making this treatment unsuitable.
BOTOX® does not treat the skin directly but instead allows the patient to maintain the health of the skin while at the same time keeping those unsightly wrinkles away from the public view.
Aside from 20% chance of a small bruise, BOTOX® has no common serious side effects.
