Are you considering getting BOTOX® Cosmetic? It is a very popular procedure – you probably know at least one person who gets BOTOX Cosmetic treatments – and there are good reasons for this. Read on for information on BOTOX Cosmetic and its many benefits!
What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is made from the botulinum toxin. It works by blocking the signals between the muscles and the nerves. Because the muscles are paralyzed, wrinkles and lines that have formed after years of performing the same facial movements can relax.
This is a nonsurgical, noninvasive way to reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the corners of the eyes, and on the upper nose. Before the injections, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical numbing cream to prevent discomfort – patients report that the injections don’t hurt and it only feels like a little pinch or the prick of a pin. Then, a series of small injections using a tiny needle are made in different areas of the face, on the forehead, and around the eyes, depending on where you have wrinkles and the results you would like to see.
Getting BOTOX Cosmetic only takes a few minutes – many patients have it done on their lunch hour – and afterwards you can get right back into your daily activities without any downtime. Any side effects that may come with your injections will be mild, but may include temporary redness and swelling.
It can take about a week before you start to see the results of BOTOX Cosmetic, and, if needed, Dr. Bogue will provide a touch up after that week so that your results are perfectly symmetrical. The effects of the injections can last up to 6 months, so that you can have weeks and weeks of softer, younger-looking, wrinkle-free skin.
BOTOX Cosmetic has so many benefits over those wrinkles creams you buy at the store, and it provides great results without the hassle and expense of a surgical facelift. Are you ready to try it?
