Botox is an injectable medication that temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Botox is not only the first injectable neurotoxin-based medication to gain FDA approval; it’s also the most popular injectable aesthetic treatment in the world.
People choose Botox because the treatment is backed by more than a decade of use in aesthetic applications. The results you get from Botox are predictable and reliable.
Botox works by temporarily limiting the ability of treated muscle tissue from contracting normally. Your facial muscles can still create normal facial expressions, but won’t be strong enough to tug and pull your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Because Botox delivers temporary results, there is no risk of getting stuck with an outcome that does not align with your aesthetic goals. If like many people, you end up loving your results, you can simply schedule another round of injections once your initial treatment wears off.
Getting Botox is a simple and straightforward process. There is no need for any form of advance preparation, and your office visit takes less than an hour.
Your practitioner administers your injections in just a matter of moments. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters your skin, but you shouldn’t feel any significant pain.
Botox does not require any recovery time. You can return to the rest of your day immediately after your injections. It takes a day or two for the results to develop, and you can expect those results to last for four months.
Botox has been used in medical settings since receiving FDA approval in 1989. The medication received approval for aesthetic use in 2002, and two decades later is used in nearly 100 different countries.
Over that time, a vast array of clinical trials and studies back up the safety and efficacy of Botox in both medical and aesthetic applications. The risk of side effects is small, and in the hands of a highly skilled practitioner, Botox injections are a safe way to move closer to your aesthetic goals.
If you have additional questions or concerns about Botox, simply schedule a one-on-one consultation to learn more. Booking is fast and easy using the online scheduling tool, or you can always call the office to speak with a friendly member of the administrative staff regarding appointment availability.
