What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a type of dermal filler partially comprised of botulinum toxins (a substance that inhibits neuromuscular activity). Dermal fillers reduce the signs of aging by minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX address several concerns, like deep lines around the mouth, crow’s feet, or forehead creases. BOTOX is a temporary treatment, but the results are immediate and the effects last several months.
What happens during a BOTOX treatment?
At Annandale Ob-Gyn & Primary Care, you meet with a qualified physician to discuss your concerns and learn how BOTOX can help.
After cleaning and preparing your skin, your physician injects the BOTOX solution into the treatment area using a syringe. The needle barely penetrates the surface of the skin, so you’re not likely to feel any pain. Your physician lightly massages the area to distribute the BOTOX evenly and create a natural-looking result.
After the procedure, you receive detailed aftercare instructions. To keep your skin safe, your physician might advise avoiding sun exposure or specific activities for a few days. Most women and men, however, return to their normal activities quickly.
Your skin might feel slightly red or tender immediately after the procedure. Full results from a BOTOX procedure are noticeable in about four weeks.
What are the benefits of BOTOX?
BOTOX is one of the safest and most effective treatment options for cosmetic concerns. If you’re not ready for invasive cosmetic enhancement, BOTOX is an alternative that produces incredible results.
Other benefits of a BOTOX treatment include:
- The ability to make normal facial expressions
- A short recovery time
- Results that last three to four months
A BOTOX treatment is an excellent way to “test the waters” when it comes to cosmetic enhancements because it’s completely non-invasive and unlikely to produce any complications or side effects.
You’ll notice an immediate improvement in the texture, volume, and shape of your face, and maintenance treatments can extend the time between full treatments.
