Aging gracefully doesn’t mean you need to allow the signs of aging skin remain. When searching for non-surgical solutions to lines and wrinkles, there are many treatments and options. As the popularity of injectables and dermal fillers has increased, so has the number of products on the market. BOTOX in Clarkston is different from the rest, and rather than filling lines and wrinkles, smooths them by limiting the constant muscle motions that create them.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
Are you experiencing pesky lines and wrinkles? Those moderate to severe lines that appear in multiple areas of the face (usually around the mouth, eyes, or forehead) form over time as the result of muscle activity from facial expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic works to reduce the appearance of those lines. It is injected directly into the muscles between your brows or other areas of concern and blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
How long does it take to see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
No two people are the same and results seen from BOTOX® Cosmetic may vary from person to person. Patients with moderate to severe frown lines or lines between the brows may see improvement within the first few days of treatment and can continue to improve for up to a month, while patients treating fine lines may see results within a week (these patients can also expect to see improvement for up to a month). For optimal results, it is recommended to receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments every 3-4 months.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?
Most patients report minimal pain with BOTOX® Cosmetic, as the needles used for injection are tiny. If you do feel discomfort it is usually brief. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and many people return directly to work or normal activity following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
What happens if I stop my BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the lines between your brows or areas that received treatment will gradually return to looking like they did before. They will not get worse as a result of having or discontinuing treatment.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?
Patient safety is our top priority. To get the best results, it’s important to go to a practitioner who is experienced in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic. Our medical professionals are MD’s, PA-C’s and RN’s; do not ever let an Esthetician or Beautician inject you!!! Our staff have years of experience in administering this treatment and undergo annual advanced technique training at the top medical aesthetic conferences in the country.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic affordable?
When considering your facial aesthetic options, BOTOX® Cosmetic is quite affordable. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s survey, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the least expensive facial aesthetic procedures in the United States. Like other appearance-related investments, such as hair coloring and cuts, teeth whitening, and nail care, the cost must be weighed relative to your expectations.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, one treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically alter your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you look more rested, refreshed and youthful.
Who should not use BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
