Botox is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the world. Botulinum toxins such as BOTOX® Cosmetic offer a quick, simple, non-surgical treatment for facial wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crows' feet that appear around the outer corners of the eye.
The procedure requires no downtime and no recovery. Results become apparent within 24 to 48 hours and can last for up to four months. With a few tiny injections, Botox blocks the nerve impulses to the targeted muscles. This relaxes the muscles and allows the overlying skin to flatten, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Cosmetika Aesthetics takes pride in making our results look as natural as possible.
One 10 minute treatment can achieve significant results.
How does Botox treatment work?
Your surgeon injects Botox directly into the muscles that cause wrinkles. For frown lines, your surgeon targets five specific muscle sites in your forehead. For crow’s feet, your surgeon targets the muscles at the sides of your eyes, called the orbicularis oculi. The injections are mild enough that local anesthetic is not required. You may feel a pinching sensation, but this can be remedied with topical numbing cream or ice.
Botox injections take only ten minutes. No downtime is required, so you can immediately resume normal activities. After several months, your muscles will begin to contract and you will need to repeat the injection process to maintain your results.
One possible side effect of Botox that has been disproportionately reported is a loss of flexibility in facial expressions. While this can happen after repeated Botox treatments, a trained practitioner with experience in the procedure and knowledge of facial anatomy will carefully administer your treatment to avoid this outcome. Be wary of cheap or discounted Botox products, as these may be illegal reproductions containing impurities. Seek treatment only with licensed experts like our skilled surgical team at Cosmetika Aesthetics.
Botox is one of the safest, easiest cosmetic treatments available. Thousands of patients nationwide get regular Botox injections, improving the appearance of their frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Since each injection is temporary, there’s no reason not to give it a try. Schedule a consultation to discuss the benefits of Botox and learn how this procedure can benefit you.
