Most people are aware of Botox, one of the world’s most popular cosmetic injections for unwanted dynamic wrinkles and expression lines. With a few strategic injections of Botox, you can say goodbye to forehead lines, frown lines, and other unwanted facial wrinkles, achieving smooth, wrinkle-free skin. We perform highly personalized Botox treatments according to your unique concerns and goals to ensure smooth and natural-looking results.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injection that reduces the visibility of dynamic wrinkles and expression lines, such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. When injected into targeted areas on the face, Botox can temporarily weaken the facial muscles responsible for the formation of your wrinkles, thereby suppressing the associated wrinkles. The results appear within a few days and last several months. Early Botox intervention can also help you prevent wrinkles.
The benefits of Botox:
- Minimally invasive treatment — no incisions or scarring
- Minimal discomfort during the treatment
- Addresses the root cause of dynamic wrinkles
- Early Botox intervention can prevent facial wrinkles
- Concludes within 15 minutes
- Almost no post-treatment downtime
Botox can correct the following:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Bunny lines around the nose bridge
- Laugh lines around the nose and mouth
- Perioral lines around the lips
- Creases and dimples on the chin
- Fine neck lines and banding of neck muscles
- Other facial wrinkles and creases
Side effects and recovery after Botox
Botox is an extremely safe procedure with minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, discomfort, tenderness, and bruising around the injection points. The side effects should dissipate within a few days. You can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately after your Botox treatment, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two. You should also keep your head elevated for a few hours after the treatment.
The onset and longevity of Botox results
You will start noticing mild improvements in your facial skin 3 to 4 days after your Botox treatment, but the results will finalize after 2 weeks. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which your wrinkles will gradually reappear. Most patients opt for 3 or 4 Botox treatments per year to maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
