As you age, your skin loses elasticity, but Botox® injections can restore some of this elasticity by keeping your muscles relaxed. This procedure can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and fix drooping eyelids. The treatment is quick and painless.

Learn More About Botox®

Botox injections can help: 

  • Individuals whose skin is developing fine lines and wrinkles due to the aging process or environmental factors.
  • Those who cannot control their facial expressions due to an accident, stroke, or other medical conditions like dystonia and essential tremor.

  • Cosmetic – designed for those who want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Results will last for 3-4 months.
  • Therapeutic – also used to treat medical conditions like excessive sweating, muscle spasms, and uncontrollable eye movements or twitching.

During the consultation, you will discuss with your doctor:

  • how Botox works,
  • what type of results you can expect to see from getting these treatments, and
  • what areas may need injections. You will go over options for any other treatments that might be beneficial for you
  • how many sessions are needed in your case to improve the appearance of your skin, diminish lines and wrinkles

One session of Botox injections may take between 10 and 15 minutes. The treatment is very quick and easy, but it is important to note that the appointment can take up to an hour, depending on how many areas need to be treated.

You will need a follow-up visit after a week or two to ensure the results are to your satisfaction and if you need to plan for more sessions.  

You will get the best results if you go through this process with a medical professional. The injections need to be administered properly on the face so that you receive the desired effect without damaging any nerves in the process.

Some risks associated with poorly administered Botox injections include:

  • Muscle weakness of the treated area
  • Swelling of the treated area
  • Soreness in the injected area, lasting for several hours or days
  • Decreased blinking resulting in dry eyes.

There is minimal downtime or recovery time associated with Botox injections. You can return to your regular routine right after the appointment. Since the injections paralyze the muscles around your eyes, you will feel a little discomfort for a couple of hours or until the treatment starts working. Once it starts working, you should start seeing results within 3 to 4 days after your procedure.

The benefits of Botox injections outweigh the risks when you get injections done by a trained professional. Trust your aesthetic treatment needs with a skilled medical professional to minimize the risks and get the best outcome.
