Focusing on preventing + eliminating the signs of aging.
We all want to look our best and as we age naturally we may start to develop perpetual lines. Botox helps restore a more serene quality to our facial features.
You may be a candidate for Botox injections if:
You have deep furrow between your eyebrows
You have expression lines, or crows feet around your eyes
You have lines across your forehead that make you seem older than you are
You have deep frown lines
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate under-laying facial muscles. Every time you smile, laugh or frown, the more emotion you show the deeper these wrinkles and lines become.
How does Botox work
Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin type A, one of several different toxins produced by Clostridium bacteria. The bacterium itself is not injected. The injected toxin is a protein manufactured by the bacterium, and when injected, it temporarily paralyzes the muscles underlying the wrinkles. smoothing out the skin on top. It inhibits the nerve terminal, so that the muscle will respond. You literally cannot frown after the treatment , but you don't lose sensation or expression. The nerve eventually sprouts a new terminal. Botox is successfully being used in areas of the face, neck, and body world wide, and to date is safer than the origin suggests.
Recovery & Healing
Botox injections cause almost no redness or swelling. You may drive yourself to and from treatments and resume normal activities immediately.
Pain & Risk
Botox is given with such a tiny needle that there is minimal discomfort involved, but it is a needle. Should patients have an aversion to needles, an analgesic cream is used.
There can be a slight chance of minimal and temporary bruising at the injection site. Other negative side effects can be eyelid drooping if the Botox seeps below the eyebrow and hits the muscle that controls the lid, BUT this is very rare. This would be related to the injection technique, and/or the placement or rate of injection. Eye drops can reverse the Botox effect for about six hours. Otherwise, the patient waits until the nerve regenerates.
