Anti Wrinkle Injections
Botox is a neuromuscular blocking injectable drug, which basically means it stops the transmission of chemicals that tell muscles to move. When you apply Botox to those tiny facial muscles that cause your face to wrinkle, it allows the skin to flatten out and appear younger. As an added benefit, Botox can also stop the occurrence of migraine headaches.
WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?
Botox Cosmetic is a non-invasive treatment that is used to eliminate the frown lines between the brows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and soften the ‘crow’s feet’ eye wrinkles.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles of the face, which helps to produce a smooth and relaxed appearance. Contrary to what some believe, the aim of Botox treatment is not to create a frozen look with no expression; the goal is to soften lines with preservation of a natural appearance. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and patients can immediately return to normal activities.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME WITH BOTOX?
There is no downtime after a Botox treatment. There is some mild redness at the injection site that lasts for a few minutes. Patients can return immediately to work after treatment.
CAN ANYONE INJECT BOTOX?
While Botox treatments may seem straightforward, it takes skill and judgment to create a balanced and harmonious appearance. The anatomy of the face is complex, and varies from person to person. We believe that patients should always seek a skilled and knowledgeable physician for their Botox treatment.
