What is Botox® and How Does it Work?
Derived from the naturally-occurring bacterium Botulinum, Botox® works by restricting the expansion of facial muscles, effectively impeding the formation of wrinkles caused by muscle movement, like crow’s feet or frown lines. Botox® is issued to the body through direct injection to the targeted muscles in the area in need of treatment. The process typically takes a quick 10 to 15 minutes with the effects being visible for up to six months afterwards in an optimal situation.
Why is Botox® Special?
Botox® is known by some as a “Facelift in a Bottle” due to both its efficiency and simplicity. A non-surgical process, Botox® is a popular treatment worldwide for men and women for nonsurgical wrinkle relaxation. The treatment is typically comfortable enough to be performed without the use of a numbing agent or anesthetic. In addition to being such a brief process, the Botox® treatment also requires no downtime. This means that the patient will be unimpeded as they go about their business for the rest of the day following the treatment.
Is Botox® a Safe Treatment?
Botox® has been F.D.A approved for decades for prevention against the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. During the consultation prior to your treatment, one of our professionals will sit down with you to review your medical history, in order to uncover anything that might end up complicating the process. During the day following an injection of Botox®, a patient should avoid exercise, drinking alcohol and otherwise unnecessarily irritating the treated area. Botox® is not intended for use on individuals under the age of 21.
Do I Qualify?
Most healthy and able adults looking for a non-surgical solution to their facial wrinkles are qualified for the process, although candidacy can only be verified after a scheduled consultation with one of the professionals from our practice.
