What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin type A. When administered in small and controlled doses, this powerful neurotoxin can be used to selectively and harmlessly immobilize small facial muscles. Botox uses the botulinum toxin to relax small facial muscles responsible for the formation of creases and wrinkles in the skin. By injecting Botox into the muscles beneath the skin, the small muscles responsible for forming wrinkles can be “frozen” to prevent wrinkle development.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
Good candidates for Botox are patients with mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles who are interested in minimally invasive anti-aging treatment. Botox does not have many contraindications, making adult patients of all ages great candidates for treatment. Botox is only intended to manage mild to moderate wrinkles and may not be right for patients with more profuse signs of aging. While experienced injectors can use Botox off-label to target various areas of the face, it is currently only FDA-approved for targeting crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Patients interested in Botox injections should have realistic expectations about their results. They should also not have any infections or wounds around the injection sites. Schedule a consultation at MenRegen to learn if you are a good candidate for Botox treatments.
The Botox Procedure
After helping you decide which areas of your face require treatment, your MenRegen specialist will begin administering Botox with a series of injections. Ice or topical anesthesia may be used to numb the face in advance, although most patients find Botox treatments to be comfortable enough on their own. The injections will be spread throughout the targeted area to ensure even and full coverage.
Treatments typically take about 30 minutes. The volume of Botox used during your appointment will depend on your desired results and your MenRegen team member’s professional recommendation. After your Botox treatment, you are free to immediately return home and resume normal activities, no downtime necessary.
What Are the Side Effects of Botox?
Botox treatments have minimal side effects including mild swelling, bruising and numbness. The areas around your injection sites may appear a bit red and feel sensitive immediately after your appointment, although these side effects will improve throughout the day. Any mild swelling and bruising may take a few days to completely subside.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Results take about four to seven days to develop following a Botox treatment. Once your results have fully developed, you can expect smoother, younger-looking skin with just a single appointment. Your results will last about three to six months, after which your body will harmlessly absorb the Botox and your wrinkles will return. Botox treatments are commonly repeated every three to four months to maintain results year-round.
