Since 2002, BOTOX® ( botulinum toxin) treatment has been approved for the correction of dynamic wrinkles on the face. Read the sections below to learn more about the injection process and how BOTOX® treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles for more information visit website.
The BOTOX® Injection Process
Before beginning the BOTOX® treatment process, the doctor will instruct the patient to contract their facial muscles in order to determine precisely where to place the first injection. Next, the doctor will use a very small needle to administer BOTOX® injections directly into the muscles that cause frown lines, furrows, and horizontal wrinkles. Because the procedure is quick and has minimal discomfort, no anesthesia is required. If the patient is sensitive to pain, however, the doctor may numb the targeted area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to BOTOX® treatment.
How Long Will My BOTOX® Treatment Session Last?
BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) treatment is usually performed in a doctor’s office and takes approximately one hour from start to finish. The length of your treatment will vary, depending on your specific case, but the actual injection process usually will not take longer than 10 minutes. Because of this, BOTOX® treatment is known as a “lunchtime” cosmetic procedure. Most patients do not require any downtime and can resume their daily activities immediately after BOTOX® treatment. You should see a noticeable improvement in the treated frown lines and furrows within a few days after having the procedure, and the appearance of wrinkles should continue to improve for up to a month. BOTOX® treatment results typically last up to four months.
