BOTOX® is an injectable that is currently being used to treat a broad range of cosmetic and health issues. If you have fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead, around the mouth and on the cheeks, this product can provide a non-invasive, low-risk solution.
BOTOX® treatments last just minutes and entail only a very a nominal recovery time. Within five to seven days of receiving these injections, you can have smooth, youthful-looking skin that you’ll be proud to show off.
What BOTOX® Can do for You
Wrinkles are primarily caused by the contractions of muscles that lie just beneath the skin. Each time you make a new facial expression, these muscles flex and contract. As the years go by, built-up tension within these muscles often leads to the development of noticeable creases such as crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines and smile lines.
BOTOX® temporarily immobilizes the muscles that are responsible for fine lines and wrinkles so that the signs of aging abate. As the facial muscles relax, the surface skin invariably smooths out. The results of these injections take just days to appear but can last for up to four to six months.
Why Choose BOTOX®
BOTOX® is currently one of the most widely sought after cosmetic treatments in the United States. There is no tissue removal or cutting involved in these treatments and few risks of complications.
The needle that is used to inject BOTOX® into treatment areas is also very thin and thus, patients experience a very limited amount of discomfort. Best of all, this treatment is short and simple enough to be completed on a person’s lunch break.
During Your BOTOX® Treatment
During the consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals before your BOTOX® treatment is scheduled. We will determine which areas are most in need of this product.
During the procedure, BOTOX® will be injected into the targeted facial muscles in a procedure that can last approximately 15 to 20 minutes. After the injections are complete, you’ll be free to go and can immediately return to your normal activities.
After Your BOTOX® Treatment
After a BOTOX® treatment has been performed, patients are advised against rubbing or agitating their faces. Although modest improvements can be gained on the very day of your appointment, the greatest changes will become visible several days later.
BOTOX® treatments can be safely repeated three to four times per year and most people report extended benefits over time due to the fact that this solution slowly trains the treated muscles to maintain their relaxed state. To schedule a consultation, contact Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center today.
