Botox Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation
Are you looking for a quick and easy way to treat undesirable frown lines and facial wrinkles for a refreshed, youthful look? We’re proud to offer Botox injections, one of the most popular FDA-approved cosmetic treatments for common signs of aging like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
Botox was first used by ophthalmologists in the late ’80s, for the treatment of optic muscle disorders. It has been used for cosmetic applications for more than 20 years, so we have extensive experience with this treatment.
Botox Injections – What’s Involved?
Botox injections treat “dynamic” wrinkles and frown lines by depressing the release of acetylcholine, a naturally occurring chemical responsible for muscle contractions. By essentially paralyzing targeted facial muscles, Botox is able to stop the associated bunching of skin that causes wrinkles.
The procedure is fast, simple and relatively painless. Our cosmetic experts will help you identify the troublesome areas of your face you’re looking to enhance with Botox. Once the injection sites have been identified and marked, a local anesthetic and/or numbing cream can be used to minimize any discomfort.
Depending on the number of facial zones you’re looking to enhance, your Botox treatment could be completed in mere minutes.
What Sort of Results Can I Expect From Botox?
Botox’s continuous popularity indicates just how effective the injectable is for treating the early signs of aging. Results should be visible within a week after treatment and can last up to six months.
There is no downtime associated with Botox injections, meaning that you can jump right back into your day immediately after treatment. (Although sun exposure should be limited if possible.)
Botox Side Effects
Botox injections are safe when conducted by a professional, but side effects can include:
- Pain at the injection site
- Flu-like symptoms
