BOTOX® is an FDA-approved treatment for dozens of conditions, but it’s most well-known for addressing those annoying dynamic wrinkles on the face. You may be wondering what exactly BOTOX® is and how you can benefit. Our team is here to help!
What is It?
BOTOX® is essentially a purified protein solution that works to relax certain facial muscles. The problem areas it treats include crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes, forehead furrows and frown lines between the eyebrows.
What to Expect
Before your treatment, you will go through a consultation with our professional, who will make sure you qualify for the treatment. During the procedure, the professional will inject a minuscule amount of the BOTOX® solution into your muscles. The number you will receive depends on the extent of the treatment area and other factors.
Getting a BOTOX® treatment comes with no set downtime, so it can even be done during a break from your other daily activities. As such, it’s a convenient treatment for men and women with busy schedules. Depending on what you have treated, results can take up to a week to manifest and can last for multiple months before follow-up injections are needed for ongoing benefits.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Almost everyone is a good candidate for BOTOX®. We may recommend BOTOX® to you if:
- You have moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- You are in good general health
- You have realistic expectations of the treatment and results
- You want results within days
- You want results that look natural
You will be asked to let our specialist know of your complete medical history during your initial consultation. This is also the time to discuss your goals for the treatment.
