What Is Botox® and How Is It Used for Skin Rejuvenation?
Botox®, scientifically referred to as Botulinum Toxin, is an injective medicine, available by prescription, which is used to smooth out frown lines. The treatment, which is temporary, can be administered to adults between the ages of 18 and 65. The Botox® Cosmetic works by restricting the contractions that cause frown lines to appear.
When Can Treatment Results be Seen?
In only a few days, Phoenix and Scottsdale patients see a marked improvement in their face, with the lines slowly diminishing after about a month.
How Long Do the Treatments Last?
Each Botox® treatment lasts, on average, about four months.
What Is Involved in the Treatment Process?
First, an anesthetic is administered at the injection site to minimize any discomfort. Then, the doctor will inject the area with the Botox® Cosmetic.
How Long Does a Treatment Last?
You can receive a Botox® treatment in as little as ten minutes. Therefore, you can schedule a treatment during your lunch hour in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area, or when you get off work.
When Is Botox® Not Advised?
Some people are not good candidates for Botox®. People with respiratory ailments, such as asthma or emphysema, should not receive the treatment, nor should people who have difficulty swallowing, are susceptible to bleeding, are currently breastfeeding, or have had cosmetic surgery.
What Are the Primary Benefits of Botox®?
Botox® can be administered to both men and women and is a great cosmetic option for younger people who want to prevent the future formation of wrinkles while treating existing wrinkles and lines.
