HOW IT WORKS
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes specific muscles by blocking the nerve impulses. As the treated muscles relax, dynamic wrinkles and lines created by their contraction gradually fade, and sometimes even disappear completely resulting in smooth skin. The earlier a patient starts BOTOX®, the smoother their face will appear as they age. Regularly scheduled injections can actually prevent wrinkles including common forehead wrinkles and under eye wrinkles.
The possible treatment areas for BOTOX® include forehead lines, frown lines, bunny lines, crow’s feet, slimming of the jaw, dimpled chin, gummy smile, lip lines and so much more. BOTOX® injections are safe when administered by an experienced practitioner with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A typical BOTOX® treatment takes only 10 minutes and there is very little discomfort as we use the tiniest needles known to man.
The beautiful, natural-looking results gradually take effect over the two weeks following your treatment and can last up to 3 or 6 months. We advise our patients to expect peak results after 4 to 6 weeks and to bear this in mind when planning for a special event. Results typically last 3 to 4 months and we recommend regular touch-ups to maintain results.
POST TREATMENT CARE
Resume normal activities immediately post-treatment. It is a myth that you cannot lie down for several hours or exercise following a BOTOX® treatment
In our experience, most patients report that their BOTOX® results look the most natural at 6 to 8 weeks. Therefore, if you have a special event coming up we recommend making your appointment for BOTOX® 6 – 8 weeks before the event. This also leaves time for a touch up if necessary.
