Reasons to have botox

Cosmetic issues that can be addressed with botox
BOTOX is a versatile treatment with many cosmetic applications. It can help patients:
- Treat frown lines between the eyebrows
- Smooth creases and wrinkles on the forehead
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet
- Lift turned-down corners of the mouth
- Minimize lip lines
- Reduce vertical bands in the neck
How does botox work?
BOTOX is known as a neuromodulator. It works by interfering with nerves signaling the muscles to contract. This causes a reduction of activity in the target muscles.
In medicine, very small amounts of the toxin are injected into precise locations, and in cosmetic medicine, it is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles.
BOTOX is extremely successful at treating the two vertical crease lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal furrows on the forehead, and “crow’s feet.” BOTOX can improve the appearance of these wrinkles and, to some degree, keep them from progressively worsening in appearance. With low costs, noticeable results and no recovery, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today.
How Long do the Results of BOTOX Last?
BOTOX results normally last for three months. The length of the results will depend on several factors. The original tone of the skin prior to the treatment is a huge factor. Another factor is the length of time between treatments. It is important to schedule a follow-up appointment before the effects wear off, allowing the skin tone to remain consistent.
Do BOTOX Injections Cause Side Effects?
BOTOX injections cause minimal side effects. The most common side effects include inflammation and bruising around the treatment area. The injection sites may feel warm and be tender to the touch for the first few hours. After the initial side effects begin to disappear, tenderness throughout the treatment area may be felt. Any feelings of firmness or rigidity should begin to dissipate after the first few days. The initial inflammation and bruising should only last two or three days.
Recovery following botox
The only recovery from BOTOX is related to the needle going through the skin. With any injection, small blood vessels may be punctured, leading to small amounts of bruising. This can be minimized by avoiding blood-thinning medications such as Advil or Aspirin around the time of treatment.
