Botox is the most popular non-surgical treatment for patients interested in reducing the appearance of the visible effects of age. It's a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles in the designated treatment area to treat dynamic wrinkles like smile lines, frown lines, and crow's feet.
What is Botox?
Botox is the natural, purified injectable aesthetic treatment consisting of botulinum toxin. A low dose is injected directly into the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. Botox works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and restores a younger-looking appearance.
Benefits of Botox:
- Erases the signs of aging
- A quick and convenient treatment session
- A customized treatment plan for individual patients
- Provides immediate results
- Stop excessive sweating and eye squinting
Are There Any Side Effects?
When it comes to the side effects, some patients may experience mild injection-related side effects such as itching, burning, or swelling. These side effects are temporary and subside within a week.
Is Botox Treatment Painful?
With topical anesthetic, Botox treatment can be virtually painless. Without any numbing agents, pain is minimal, and you may feel a little pinch. These Botox injections are tiny and very quick. You may not even notice when it happens.
