Botox Injections & Treatment
What is Botox®?
Botox is a nonsurgical treatment that can make a remarkable difference in softening and virtually eliminating deep furrows and wrinkles between your brows, creases on your forehead, and crow's feet around your eyes.
Botox® is a medicine that is injected with a very fine needle in the skin with very little or no discomfort to the patient. It is used very safely, simply and effectively. By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox® reduces wrinkles. Botox® is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.
How does the Botox® work?
BOTOX® acts as a nerve impulse blocker. Botox® actually prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don't contract. Botox® binds to the nerve endings and blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.
What is the Botox® treatment like?
BOTOX® treatment is a simple and safe procedure performed by our doctors in our clinic. The injection takes just minutes, and there is no significant pain, as we use extremely fine needles. No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office. Usually makeup can be reapplied before patients leave the clinic, and normal activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure. Some results from BOTOX® therapy will be seen in the first few hours, but it generally takes one to two weeks for the full effect to become apparent. BOTOX® treatment may be repeated a couple of times a year to maintain the desired effects.
