Botox temporarily blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles that contract when we make facial expressions. This causes the muscles to relax more, and the wrinkles to be much less noticeable. Although the muscles are temporarily “frozen”, you will still be able to make your own facial expressions, as long as you choose a provider who is experienced in administering Botox injections correctly. At Nuderma we fully understand the structure of the human face, the underlying facial muscles, how many units should be used per area, and exactly how to administer Botox.
Achieve a Natural Appearance
Botox® Cosmetic can be used in many areas of the face to achieve a natural, energetic appearance. It is appropriate for the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and lines around the eyebrows. Also, patients use Botox® Cosmetic for a gummy smile, frown lines, chin dimples, lip lines, and marionette lines around the mouth. Botox Cosmetic is the natural way to smooth and relax features without surgery.
The muscles of facial movement are the most popular areas treated. By relaxing different facial muscles – from the forehead to the neck – wrinkles can be minimized, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin.
How Is a Botox Cosmetic Procedure Done?
Getting Botox Cosmetic takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia. Botox Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. Your provider will make a treatment plan for the number of units before your treatment to meet your goals. We do start more conservatively to achieve a natural appearance by using guidelines set by Allergan. After treatment, it generally takes seven to ten days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.
Recovery and Results
Some patients experience minimal bruising and swelling but these subside quickly.
The next several hours following your treatment, you’ll need to avoid rubbing your face, sleeping on your face, high-intensity exercising, tanning, and saunas.
You can expect to see your Botox results about three to five days after your appointment. The longevity of Botox results vary for each person, depending on their individual muscle strength and how deep their lines and wrinkles are. However, in general, Botox results last from 3 to 4 months and we recommend Botox treatments to be repeated every 3 to 4 months for a maintaining optimal results.
