All About BOTOX
Botox is a safe, fast, and effective way to treat facial creases and wrinkles, allowing you to have a more youthful appearance without surgery. BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment that is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes and for the frown and forehead. Dr. Prasad is an experienced Botox expert who can help you get the smoothness you’ve always wanted.
Fun Facts about BOTOX:
- The first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults
- A quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime
- It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines
How does BOTOX work?
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
Wondering how long your results will last?
You will see results from your treatment within one to fourteen days after the procedure. The effects from your Botox treatment will usually last about three months. Our staff can set up regular BOTOX® injection appointments for you, with Dr. Prasad or her nurses, to ensure that you have a consistent treatment schedule.
You may experience some side effects from BOTOX treatment, but they are usually minimal and are temporary. Very occasionally, bruising can occur.
