Get rid of your notion that BOTOX® eliminates facial wrinkles but makes you look unapproachable. Today’s BOTOX® relaxes the wrinkles and fine lines on your face and still lets you keep your ability to smile.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is created from botulinum toxin and is administered into the facial muscles to prevent them from contracting.
What BOTOX® Treats
Time gives everyone wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyebrows. BOTOX® is usually used on forehead wrinkles.
When you’ve had a consultation with Dermatology Associates, you can begin your treatments. You can typically visit during your lunch break because the procedure is so brief. The needles are very small, and the injections are quite quick. Many doctors don’t use any local anesthetic cream because the needles are so small, but you can request some local pain relief if you’re particularly worried about any discomfort. The procedure can take 15 minutes or more. You can return to work immediately afterward. You should only avoid heavy activity and lying flat for about four hours.
Thankfully, BOTOX® has been so refined that there are very few side effects anymore. If you’re visiting a trusted, experienced doctor, then you don’t have to worry about any serious side effects. The most common side effect is redness or soreness at the injection sites, and if you bruise easily, you might have some minor bruising.
How Long Does BOTOX® Last?
You’ll see your lines and wrinkles start to diminish three to seven days after your treatment. On average, you can expect your results to last at least four months, and then you’ll need follow-up injections to keep the wrinkles away.
Don’t feel like you need expensive creams or painful surgeries to get rid of your lines and wrinkles. A series of quick and painless injections will help you look and feel more youthful.
