What is Botox®?
By injecting tiny amounts into a specific facial muscle, only targeted impulse of that muscle will be blocked, causing a local relaxation and weakness. In this way, it acts as a muscle blockade to immobilize the underlying cause of the unwanted lines and prevent "wrinkly" expressions. It has been used since 1980 to treat many muscle disorders, such as lazy eye, eye ticks, and uncontrolled blinking. Today we can treat wrinkles without surgery or scars and without any "down time." The effects take place 3-7 days after treatment. The results last 3-6 months, and than will gradually fade. Repeated treatments usually produce longer lasting results.
What is a Botox® treatment like?
Botox® procedures are quick with no anesthesia required. Injections are administered with an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and once complete, there is usually no discomfort. If you're like most patients, you'll return directly to work or normal activity immediately. We'll use a cold gel pack to apply to your injected area to help soothe. Most people are very surprised the first time to see just how quickly and comfortably Botox® can be injected. There's nothing to be afraid of.
If you've had Botox® in the past at another office and had any unexpected side effects, please let us know so we can make the necessary adjustments to your dosage and/or injection placement
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are minimal and are typically related to the injection site. Make-up may be worn after treatment, but care should be taken to avoid pressing of massaging the area for several hours. You need to remain upright for several hours after the treatment.
