It’s easy to see why Botox is the #1 choice in antiaging treatments; it’s a quick procedure that can be done on your lunch hour and it is virtually pain free.
What can you expect from your Botox treatment?
Botox is a quick, non-surgical procedure that helps patients look and feel more refreshed by temporarily reducing fine line and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles. “Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox is a quick treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults “. www.botoxcosmetic.com
Botox injections take about 15 minutes to administer, but this can vary depending on the number of areas treated. Botox is approved for use on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines between the eyebrows.
The results are visible after a few days giving you a more relaxed and smoother appearance that lasts on average 3 -4 months.
You can apply makeup immediately after treatment, as long as there is not excessive pressure on areas treated.
Like every treatment, each patient has a specific look they desire, but the great thing about Botox is that the result can be customized to fit the patient and their needs.
