Our World Famous Dermatologist offices are now offering botox services at all our aforementioned locations and would love to tell you more about this non-invasive, safe, effective, youth restoring treatment. Read on for more information about botox and how it can help you improve some common age related issues:
What is a Botox® Treatment?
Botox is so named because it is an injection of the bacterium clostridium botulinum, also called Botulinum Toxin Type A. Although it is a naturally occurring substance, it is created in controlled laboratory conditions. This ensures patient safety and substance quality. Originally, it was created to treat misalignment of eye or eye spasms. Additionally, it is still used to treat migraines and other medical issues. However, it is also an effective way to combat common signs of aging. After this discovery, it then made its way into the cosmetic world.
What to Expect During a Treatment, How Many Injections Are Necessary?
During your treatment, expect botox to be injected via a micro-needle into areas that require treatment. The most common places are the outer eye or forehead area. However, the location will depend on your treatment goals or purpose for treatment. Treatment usually includes between one and three injections per muscle. It is impossible to predict how many injections you might need because this factor is based on various components.
Thankfully, however, due to the small needle size, treatments don’t include much pain at all and typically are described as causing merely a burning sensation. Some patients don’t even experience pain or any burning sensation at all. Many patients notice the maximum benefit of their treatment one to two weeks post-treatment and opt for injections every six months. However, after treatment you can notice positive effects in as little as a few hours to three days.
What Are The Common Treatment Areas?
There are various ways you can use botox treatments at our World Famous Dermatologist offices. Our medical professionals can work with you to determine the best locations for your treatments. Obviously, where your injections need to go will be dictated by what your treatment goals are, what lines you want to fill and what you want to accomplish during your botox treatment. However, the most common treatment areas are as follows:
- Frown lines or glabella
- Forehead lines and/or creases
- Marionette lines
- Smoker’s lines also called peri-oral lines
- Crow’s feet
- Chin dents
- Bunny lines also called transverse nasal
- Brow lift
How Long Can You Expect Your Treatment to Last?
In most cases, the effects of a botox treatment will remain for at least three months post-treatment but can last as long as 12 months. As botox fades, the improvement you notice in your superficial wrinkles and fine lines will also slowly fade. This indicates it’s time to make another appointment for an additional botox treatment.
Is It Safe? Who Is a Good Candidate For The Treatment?
There is no indication that botox can cause any serious harm. In fact, if desired, continued treatments are possible. Therefore, it is considered a safe, non invasive way to restore a youthful appearance to the face. There are some individuals who should avoid botox injections, though, and they are pregnant women or those taking specific medications. Our medical experts can advise you about whether or not botox is a good idea for you individually, but the vast majority of people are good candidates for treatment. In fact, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, botox is the most popular procedure nationwide, which is evidence of its safety. In some rare cases, patients experience numbness. However, this is not common.
Some experts recommend you regularly squint or frown after an injection in an effort to help the botox substance settle in. Others say it’s important to restrict the muscle movement in the area after treatment for some time. Therefore, it’s important to ask our experts what you can do to improve the effects of your botox after your injection as your instructions will likely vary based on the location of your injection and other individual factors. After your injection, avoid bending over or lying down for at least four hours. It’s also important to wear sunscreen on the area as excessive sun exposure has been shown to prolong any bruising you experience and can even promote hyperpigmentation in the treatment area.
