Botox cosmetic is a treatment for patients seeking a solution to the signs of aging. With Botox you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and really turn back time. Your skin will look firm, smooth, and will have that youthful glow.
Botox is composted of a botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein. This protein relaxes the muscles, and in turn reduces and prevents wrinkles. Botox can provide results quickly, and is minimally invasive. Botox is typically used to treat the forehead, area between your eyes or glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. Wrinkles form overtime from repeated muscle contractions or facial expressions, and Botox can temporarily relax those muscles, and smooth out your skin.
Botox takes up to a week to notice results. The results from Botox are temporary, and can last between 3-12 months. This depends on the severity of the wrinkles and amount of Botox used. Multiple treatments are required to keep up with your Botox in order to maintain the desired results.
There is no preparation needed for Botox, and the process is minimally invasive and quick. The Botox is diluted and injected into the facial neuromuscular tissue. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and targets your areas of concern.
Typically, Botox takes between 24-72 hours to take effect, and patients can notice results 5-7 days after their treatment. Patients may experiences light swelling or bruising around the injection site, but this should subside after a few days.
