While new anti-aging treatments are introduced all the time, Botox remains a favorite option for many men and women looking to roll back the clock on their appearance. What is it about this simple injectable procedure that keeps patients coming back time and time again? It turns out there are still many things to love about Botox!
Fast, East Treatment
Botox injections continue to be one of the fastest and easiest ways to say goodbye to wrinkles today. This procedure does not require any type of anesthesia and is virtually painless, thanks to the fine needles used to administer the injections. Injections are placed into strategic locations to relax the facial muscles that are responsible for forming the wrinkles around the forehead and eyes. You can head into our office over your lunch hour for a quick Botox treatment and return to work without alerting anyone to the fact you just had a cosmetic treatment performed.
Versatility and Treatment Options
Botox can be used in a variety of ways to give you a more youthful appearance. The medication smooths away horizontal lines that extend across the forehead and vertical lines that form between the eyebrows. Botox is also effective in refreshing the eyes, by removing fine lines in the outer corners known as crow’s feet. The procedure can even be used by experienced plastic surgeons to create a non-surgical lift to the brow or reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.
Unlike surgical procedures, there is absolutely no downtime after a Botox treatment. In fact, you can immediately return to your regular activities when your procedure is over. Some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising around the injection sites, but these side effects tend to be rare and will subside within a few hours of the procedure. There is no discomfort after a Botox injection, so your treatment should not affect your ability to function in any way.
Botox offers results you can see almost from the minute you leave your surgeon’s office. Those results will continue to improve in the days following your treatment, as the muscle continues to relax and the facial creases smooth away. Botox results typically last 3-4 months before another procedure is needed. However, some patients find that after a number of regularly scheduled Botox sessions, they can begin to stretch those appointments a bit further apart without compromising their results.
Medical Uses for Botox
Botox is not just a cosmetic treatment. Before it was touted as a wrinkle eliminator, the medication was used to treat a variety of medical conditions. Today, Botox is still used to treat medical issues like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) chronic migraines and even stress urinary incontinence in some patients. The use of the formula in the medical realm boost the confidence of many patients wondering about its safety and efficacy in the cosmetic industry as well.
