How Safe is It?
Botox, or “Botulinum toxin type A”, might have a scary-sounding name, but you can rest easy as the liquid is carefully produced and purified in certified laboratory settings. Botox injections are used in small doses for cosmetic treatments, making them very safe! As a matter of fact, Botox treatments have been used across the world for over 30 years. It is one of the most researched cosmetic treatments, and many cosmetic and expert health care professionals don’t hesitate to use it on their patients. Again, if you have any doubts about Botox’s safety and how the procedure is administered, then feel free to ask us!
How do the Injections Work?
Wrinkles form when the muscles beneath the affected area contract. For example, muscles in the forehead are vertical. When you raise your eyebrows, they contract and wrinkles appear horizontally. Botox is injected into these muscles where it helps block nerve impulses to tissues. From there, the skin located above the muscles that caused wrinkles to appear now appears smoother.
How Long Does the Procedure Last?
Botox injections usually take about 10-15 minutes to administer and there is no need for recovery. Patients can have the procedure done at our location and head on home that same day! It’s important for our customers to know that results should be seen within a few days of treatment. Botox requires anywhere between three and seven days to take full effect and results could peak anywhere between 10 to 14 days after treatment. The injections should last up to four months. After that, wrinkles will gradually appear again, meaning another visit with us should be scheduled for further injections.
