What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. The Botox® formula is composed of botulinum toxin, which has the ability to block nerve signals in the body.
When it is injected into the facial muscles, the muscles are unable to contract. These same muscles are responsible for causing wrinkles. As the muscles relax, these wrinkles begin to fade. The Botox® treatment can be used to address the following wrinkles:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
Am I A Good Candidate for Botox®?
If you suffer from any of the wrinkles listed above, you may be a good candidate for Botox® treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Botox® is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if Botox® is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Botox® Treatment Like?
The areas to be injected are first cleansed, then the Botox® formula will be injected into the desired treatment area. The number and exact location of these injections will depend on your treatment goals. However, the injection process takes only a few minutes, so the Botox® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.
What is the Botox® Recovery Process Like?
Botox®, like most injectable treatments, requires practically no downtime or recovery period. Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treatment area. These effects will fade within a few days of treatment. Despite these effects, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities within a day of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Botox®?
The results from Botox® will become visible in the weeks following treatment. It takes a few days for the Botox® formula to take effect in the body, so you may not begin seeing results until about a week after your treatment. Then, you’ll notice a gradual reduction in facial wrinkles as the treated muscles become relaxed.
The results from Botox® typically last about three to four months. After this point, patients may choose to receive additional Botox® injections in order to prolong the results of treatment.
