Botox® is the FDA-approved cosmetic form of botulinum toxin that reduces muscle activity and skin wrinkling. This painless office-based injectable temporarily reduces or eliminates worry lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, and crow ’s feet. Botox® can also be used to treat migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and certain muscle spasm conditions. Botox® is a quick and painless non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can help you look rejuvenated and take years off your face.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a prescription cosmetic medicine that was introduced in 2002. It is a form of purified and diluted Botulinum toxin that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve facial lines and wrinkles. It is a popular procedure for people between 18-65 years old.
How Botox® Works
Botox® is a non-surgical procedure, administered by Premier Medical Aesthetix healthcare professionals. Botox® is injected into specific spots on the face to block nerve impulses and reduce muscle activities that cause wrinkles and lines. It will still allow you to showcase your full collection of facial expressions because this procedure only treats the offending muscles.
Here are some of the key benefits of using Botox® treatments:
- It requires no recovery period and you can go back to normal activities immediately
- You will see natural-looking results within 3- 10 days
- Results usually last numerous months
- The whole procedure could only take as little as 10 minutes
- Painless, although very minor discomfort may be felt
- It is a non-invasive, safe and effective procedure
What to Expect
Botox® treatment is safe, quick and highly-effective. Most patients at Premier Medical Aesthetix only feel a slight stinging sensation on the injection sites. After your treatment, you can immediately go back to your normal daily routine. You will feel your facial lines and wrinkles slowly fade away after about 3-10 days. Results usually last for about three to four months.
