If you are unhappy with the dynamic lines you have (those caused by repetitive facial expressions), Botox injections can be used to soften those lines. Treatments can also be used to enhance your facial features! Contact Facial Rejuvenation Centre today to schedule a consult on how you can look like a younger, fresher, and more relaxed version of you.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is made from a toxin called botulinum A and works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the face. This non-surgical treatment is most often used on frown lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Treatments can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth and sagging skin on the neck and jawline. Some patients may also have treatments for migraines, excessive sweating, and urinary incontinence.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?
Before any treatment takes place, we offer a thorough consultation to understand the patient’s concerns and expectations from treatment. We then evaluate each patient’s face to determine the best injection sites and thoroughly cleans the treatment area. Then using a small needle, we make several injections of the serum. Some patients may request a topical anesthetic, but most do not find the injection process painful. The treatment takes between 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of injections needed to address the patient’s concerns. The results start to be noticeable within a few days of treatment, with the full effects perceivable in approximately a week to 10 days.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF BOTOX LAST?
We continue to age, so we don’t want Botox to last forever! Initial Botox results usually last up to three months following treatment. Patients may have additional treatments at regular intervals to maintain the smooth and youthful appearance provided by Botox. Some patients find that with regular injections, muscles become conditioned to rest, allowing for longer intervals between treatments while the deep wrinkles become not as deep.
IS BOTOX SAFE?
Botox has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic purposes. It is important that you find a trained provider, such as those staffed at Facial Rejuvenation Centre, to perform the injections. Botox is a safe, effective, and nonsurgical method of reducing the signs of aging.
