If you are seeking a more youthful appearance with BOTOX® in OR, you probably already know the treatment is delivered via injection to reduce the activity of facial muscles. But did you know you can undergo this treatment without the need for hospitalization or downtime? Patients also tend to have certain misconceptions about cosmetic treatments that can be cleared up with some good information. This allows you to make an informed decision about your appearance and health.
What is BOTOX®?
This popular form of anti-aging treatment consists of an injection or injections delivered into certain facial muscles responsible for what we call dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are types of wrinkles formed by underlying facial muscle contractions. BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing these muscles so that they cannot contract and form dynamic wrinkles at the injection sites.
How Does It Work?
Once injected, BOTOX® reduces the activity of treated facial muscles to prevent them from forming dynamic wrinkles on the surface. The product acts as a sort of nerve block to prevent nerve transmissions from reaching treated muscles. Since these muscles do not receive a message to contract, they do not form a dynamic wrinkle in the treatment area.
What Should I Expect at My Appointment?
Patients appreciate the fact that BOTOX® treatment is quick and efficient. Before your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort. We will then deliver a number of injections into underlying facial muscles.
Immediately after your injections, you will be asked to make certain facial expressions. This helps to ensure that the product is distributed evenly under your skin so that there are no problems.
