What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic has recently become quite widely used and easily accessible to most people. However, despite this, there is still a slight stigma to this popular neurotoxin treatment. Many people who visit our center in Helena express their concern over looking like they’ve had work done. Fear not! The good news is that BOTOX® Cosmetic injection techniques have become so perfect that they can now provide youthful-looking results without giving you away.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic consists of a neurotoxin called botulinum that works by blocking nerve signals to muscles. Though it sounds dangerous, when applied in small diluted amounts, BOTOX® Cosmetic is perfectly safe for cosmetic use. When injected into specific areas in the face, this treatment relaxes muscles, keeping them from contracting so intensely. This has the effect of easing wrinkle tension in the face, making you look young and refreshed.
What Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treat?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a common solution for reducing wrinkles such as frown lines due to facial movement. Additionally, BOTOX® Cosmetic has received approval for treating forehead lines and crow’s feet as well as glabellar lines. This simple injectable is a good choice for reducing the appearance of mild wrinkles, and is often a preventative measure to keep lines and wrinkles from getting deeper with age. Additionally, BOTOX® has medical applications such as the reduction of sweating due to hyperhidrosis. BOTOX® for medical purposes is provided by our sister center, Helena Dermatology.
What to Expect During Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are quick, easy, and painless. During your treatment at our Montana center, a series of small shots will be injected into targeted muscles in your face. A precise amount of the injectable will be carefully placed into each site for maximum, long-lasting results. The procedure will take roughly 10-15 minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic or ice may be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort before injection begins. The short procedure results in small areas of swelling lasting 20-30 minutes.
Results From Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic results can usually be seen within 2-7 days and tend to last anywhere between 3-4 months.* In some cases, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been shown to last for up to six months.* This treatment is minimally invasive and results in a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will look tighter and smoother than before your visit.*
