More About Botox

As we age, the tissues of our face will begin to lose elasticity and volume. This lax skin can sag, allowing fine lines and deep creases to form. Areas with repetitive movement, such as those around the eyes and mouth, are especially prone to wrinkles. Smoking, sun damage, and genetics further contribute to these early signs of aging. Frown Lines, Crow’s Feet, and deep creases along the forehead can make you appear unhappy, angry, and worse of all, years older.

There is little that can be done at home to reverse these changes in the skin; lotions, creams, and expensive department store products will have no affect. Once you start to see the fine lines and wrinkles that appear with aging, it is time to seek out professional assistance. Botox Cosmetic is a noninvasive treatment, designed to effectively smooth dynamic wrinkles (those caused by repetitive muscle movement).

Botox (Botulinum Toxin)

Botox Cosmetic, comprised of Botulinum Toxin, temporarily relaxes facial muscles, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Injected directly into the targeted area, Botox eases the muscle tension that causes dynamic wrinkles to appear. In just one session, lines along the forehead and around the eyes can be safely treated, restoring a youthful appearance.

Botox Can Improve:

  • Crow’s Feet (around the eyes)
  • Forehead Lines
  • Frown Line (between the eyebrows)
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Dropping Brow
  • Skin lines in the neck
  • Hyperhidrosis

 

Performed alone, Botox Cosmetic will provide excellent wrinkle-reducing results. For optimal facial rejuvenation, Botox can be paired with a dermal filler, such as Juvederm Ultraplus (link) or Voluma (link).  Dermal Fillers are used in the treatment of static wrinkles (those caused by lax facial tissue). The experts at Aestehtic+Wellness can advise you on the other treatments and services available to compliment the benefits of Botox Cosmetic, and further improve the look of your skin.

The Ideal Botox Candidate

Botox Cosmetic can successfully treat dynamic wrinkles for both men and women. Anyone frustrated by the early signs of aging may make a good candidate for the noninvasive treatment. Botox Cosmetic is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. The ideal patient will be in overall good health, fully understand the treatment process, and have reasonable expectations for their results.

The Botox Consultation

Before the Botox procedure, you will have a consultation with one of Aestehtic + Wellness’s experienced injectors. This one-on-one time is vital for safe, satisfying aesthetic results. During this appointment, we will examine your skin, review your medical history, and discuss any current medications. We will explain the Botox procedure, and what to expect from the treatment. If the assessment determines that Botox is right for your needs, a unique treatment plan will be created and you can begin your Botox regime immediately after the consultation.

The Botox Procedure

A Botox Cosmetic session will take less than half an hour to complete, from start to finish. During the brief exam, the targeted areas will be determined. The procedure is generally pain-free, patients normally report feeling a slight pinch and pressure. As patient comfort level is extremely important to us here at Aesthetic+Wellness, a topical numbing cream can be applied. The injector will then meticulously apply your Botox using a very fine needle, many patients compare the sensation to that of a pin prick. The actual injections will take less than 10 minutes to complete.

Results from Botox

There is no downtime needed after Botox Cosmetic injections. You are able to return to normal activities the same afternoon. Initially, minor redness or bumps may occur at the injection site, but this should resolve in a few hours. Slight bruising may also occur.

While you may notice some benefits from a Botox Cosmetic treatment after just a few days, the full effects will take two to three weeks to be appreciated. These results from Botox will last for three to four months. After this time, a repeat procedure will be necessary to maintain the results.

Hyperhidrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. It is associated with a significant quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective.
Most commonly observed symptoms are as follows:
  • Wet palms (hands)
  • Wet soles (feet)
  • Sweating frequently
  • Underarm sweating that soaks through clothing
When used to treat underarm excessive sweating, Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months.
During the procedure, a very fine needle is used to inject tiny amounts of Botox just under the skin intermittently throughout the area of excessive sweating (in a grid pattern, approximately every 1 to 2 centimeters.) Multiple injections are given based on your Aestehtic+Wellness clinicians  assessment of the area that needs to be treated
