Botox

WHAT IS A BOTOX PROCEDURE?

A Botox® Cosmetic Procedure is a non-invasive treatment that will decrease visible signs of aging, including frown lines and crow’s feet, by temporarily decreasing the muscle activity that causes these lines. A Botox® Cosmetic Procedure is an excellent choice for busy individuals who want to enjoy rejuvenated looks without the downtime and recovery of more invasive procedures.

IS A BOTOX PROCEDURE RIGHT FOR ME?

Every person’s cosmetic needs are different, so the best way to determine if a Botox® Cosmetic Procedure is right for you is to speak with your doctor. If you’re looking for a quick, non-invasive, way to look better, feel better, and live better, it is likely that a Botox® Cosmetic Procedure could benefit you. Please schedule a consultation today.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The goal of the consultation is to determine if a Botox® Cosmetic Procedure is right for you and to answer any questions you may have. During your consultation, your doctor will ask you about your goals and expectations for the procedure and will ask you questions regarding your medical history including:

  • Do you have any muscle or nerve conditions?
  • Do you have plans to have surgery?
  • Have you ever had surgery on your face?
  • Do you have any weakness in your face muscles?
  • What prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal products are you taking?

Based on your answers to these questions and a physical examination, your doctor will help you to determine if Botox® is right for you.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING MY PROCEDURE?

Botox procedures take only about ten minutes and require such minimal downtime and recovery that they’re often referred to as lunchtime procedures. During the procedure, you will be injected with Botox (anabotulinumtoxinA) in your problem areas. Usually, these are the wrinkles between the eyes, forehead, and crow’s feet, but your doctor will help you to determine where a Botox injection can be most effective for you. The procedure is essentially painless, although you may feel a slight pinch from the injection. As soon as your Botox procedure is complete, you can get back to your regular schedule and start enjoying your results immediately.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY PROCEDURE?

It should be noted that Botox® is not a permanent treatment for the visible signs of aging. To maintain your results, you will need to receive additional injections over time. After your first Botox® Cosmetic Procedure, your doctor will help you to determine the optimal schedule for your routine procedures.

WHAT WILL MY RESULTS BE LIKE?

You should see a decrease of visible wrinkles in the areas in which you received your injections within a week.
