botox

botox

Botulinum toxin type A is an injectable neurotoxin, better known under brand names such as Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. Neurotoxin treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure in the U.S. and are mainly used to smooth dynamic wrinkles, or those wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions we tend to make day after day.  These normal facial expressions will form permanent wrinkles over time.  Treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, causing them to relax. As a result, your expressions soften, and the dynamic wrinkles are greatly reduced.

Botox can help a client of any age improve his or her appearance, not only imparting a more youthful look, but also alleviating an overly concerned look, helping you look refreshed or even more pleasant. There are many applications for use of botox to treat areas where muscle activity influences facial features as well as applications for treatment of TMJ and excessive sweating.

what to expect with botox ...

your skin might look the same

(at first)

As soon as you've had your very first Botox injections, you might be panicking that nothing looks different. Don't worry - that's totally normal. The first time botox is injected, it takes time to act.  In fact, it's possible that it may take 2-8 days to start seeing a difference. But two weeks after your appointment, you'll see the full effects of your Botox treatment. Of course, timings vary between individuals.

does it hurt?

Botox will (most likely) not hurt.  Botox needles are small, extremely small. They're so small, in fact, that most Botox aficionados feel no pain when they're injected.  If you are one of the few individuals who has some Botox discomfort, though, it really should be minimal.

bumps and

bruises

Immediately after your treatment, you may notice small red bumps. These will resolve in 20-30 minutes. Bruising is always a possibility. If you bruise, this will be very minimal and should resolve after a couple of days. You can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding ibuprofen and aspirin.  There is a small chance that you may develop a Headache after your Botox treatment. If this happens, you may take Tylenol as directed. This is rare but temporary.

don't touch it

Don't touch or massage your face at the treatment site. Botox is an expertly-injected protein, and massaging it can cause manipulation of the protein and spread into unwanted areas.  Always wait 4 hours after your treatment to resume exercising or massaging or manipulating the areas that were treated.

skip the gym

For 4 hours, you'll need to lay off the exercise. Strenuous movement may run the risk of causing the Botox to shift out of the position your practitioner has carefully injected it into.

i can't move

Botox is a muscle relaxer, so, your muscle movement will be restricted. 

To gain back your youthful appearance, Botox will stop your muscles from moving when you frown or are surprised. Sure you'll feel like you're frowning, or creasing your brow like crazy, but those expressions will be reduced.

how long does it last?

Once your first Botox treatment is done, you'll see that the results last between 3-4 months.  After this period, head back for another treatment. Staying on a schedule will help to maintain your youthful look.
