What is Botox?
Botox is the first and only prescription medication to have the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
Made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that contribute to creases and frown lines. As the muscles stop contracting, your skin relaxes and smooths out. This gives you a younger-looking, fresher appearance.
When should I consider Botox?
You may want to consider Botox therapy if you’re not ready for surgery but are dissatisfied with the severity of frown lines across your brow and creases around your eyes.
These common skin flaws are the result of repeated muscle contractions when you frown, squint, or make other facial expressions. Some people may develop wrinkles and creases at an earlier age than others.
The Envizion Medical team evaluates your medical history and your skin health. They also discuss your expectations for treatment to determine if you’re a candidate for Botox injections.
In addition to Botox injections, the team offers popular dermal fillers that add volume to your cheeks and lips, so your face will look more youthful and vibrant.
What can I expect during my Botox treatment?
During your Botox therapy, the Envizion Medical team injects precise amounts of Botox into different areas of your face. The injections are fast and relatively painless. You may feel a pinch at the time of injection.
Once your therapy is complete, you may have some mild redness and swelling in the injection sites. These side effects go away in the days after your treatment, and you can return to your usual activities immediately after your appointment.
You should notice a visible difference in the severity of your frown lines and wrinkles soon after your injections. The results of Botox continue to improve within 48 hours, and you should see the maximum benefit of your treatment within 30 days.
While everyone is different, most people enjoy results for up to four months. The Envizion Medical team can provide maintenance injections to help you retain your smoother, younger-looking skin.
