Although it’s impossible to reverse the aging process, there are ways to make the effects of aging less visible. Botox Injections are a safe way to subtly tighten the skin for a rejuvenated and youthful look.
They are commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face but can be injected anywhere in the neck and jaw to treat other concerns regarding loose skin such as a double chin. Our clinicians are skilled at Botox Injections and can provide you with a medical-based solution on what they believe is the best procedure to resolve your skin concerns.
How It Works
The function of Botox Injections is to relax the muscle tension beneath the skin. Both Dysport and Botox contain neurotoxins that lock muscle contractions. The main difference is that Dysport is used for the area of skin between the eyebrows, the Glabella Lines. Our staff will consult with you before administering Dysport as this treatment should only be used if your Glabella Lines are very deep.
Both treatments only take a few minutes to administer. Your clinician will apply an anesthetic so that you feel minimal pain during the injection process.
Frequently Asked Questions | Botox
Do Botox Injections hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with Botox feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Will I see results quickly? How long does it last?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
Botox Injections are a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust the injections to deliver subtle results. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
How long is the recovery time after treatment?
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave the clinic.
