What is Botox?
Botox, also known as Botulinum Toxin, is an AgeRejuvenation Aesthetics service that is most typically used to relax tight muscles that contribute to developing wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is a quick and relatively painless procedure that delivers almost instant results. We recommend utilizing Botox injections not only to reduce wrinkles but also as a preventative to wrinkles. If you’re looking for a comprehensive, caring, and knowledgeable Botox clinic to help you feel your best, schedule an appointment with AgeRejuvenation Aesthetics today.
How Does the Procedure Work?
Botox is applied by injecting the botulinum toxin into the targeted muscle. Botox injections penetrate into the muscle and paralyze it by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. You do not need anesthesia or pain medication for Botox treatments, and the total process takes only a few minutes, depending on how many areas you’re targeting and how deep the wrinkles go. Don’t worry, upon your initial consultation our board-certified medical providers will determine the best plan of treatment for your specific needs. It’s generally recommended that you avoid alcohol, aspirin, and anti-inflammatory medications 1-2 weeks prior to your treatment.
What Areas Can I Treat With Botox?
Botox injections are most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (the lines on the outer edge of your eyes), “11s” (the lines between your eyebrows), and smile and frown lines. However, people have used Botox on many other different areas of their face as well. Although it is typically used to treat wrinkles, other uses for Botox include:
- Severe underarm sweating
- Lock jaw, teeth grinding, or TMJ
- Pebble or orange peel chin
- Lip flips
- Gummy smiles
- Nose tips
- Platysmal bands
- Nefertiti neck
- Brow lift
AFTERCARE & ONGOING MAINTENANCE
Botox injections are relatively painless and have little recovery time, but it’s possible you will see some slight redness or irritation at the site of injection. Botox can take anywhere from 7-14 days for the full effect to take place. Depending on where the Botox is applied, there may be some specific aftercare instructions like making sure to not rub the injected area, or needing to remain upright for a few hours post-treatment. The effects from Botox generally last between 3-6 months but differ with each specific case. Once you feel your muscle action begin to slowly return, you’ll know it’s time to make another appointment with AgeRejuvenation Aesthetics. Lines and wrinkles begin to reappear slower and softer overtime as the muscles shrink from non-use.
