BOTOX Cosmetic Injection

What is BOTOX Cosmetic? Also referred to as onabotulinum toxin A, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein and neurotoxin complex that, when injected directly into the muscle, will cause relaxation. Produced in a controlled laboratory setting from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the chemical signal that allows for nerve impulses to be sent to the muscle and cause movement. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by repetitive creasing in the skin, from the facial expressions that we make on a daily basis. Over time these wrinkles can become large, deep and permanent. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing these muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, so the skin is given a chance to smooth out naturally.

A common misconception is that BOTOX® Cosmetic will completely inhibit facial expression and movement. The goal of a treatment is to soften facial lines, while still providing patients with a natural appearance and the ability to display emotion. As one of the most recognized prescription products in the world, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a leading procedures in the cosmetic and aesthetics field.

How are BOTOX Cosmetic Injections Performed? The first step is to schedule a free consultation with our professional injectionist experience administering BOTOX® Cosmetic. we'll go over your health and medical history with you, discuss your goals, assess the areas you want to have treated, and will answer any questions you have. We'll take some "before" photos so you can see the improvements the treatment makes. BOTOX® Cosmetic comes in a clear glass vial in the form of a vacuum sealed powder. It will be diluted with a sterile, non-preserved 0.9% sodium chloride solution, and the injectionist will draw it up into a syringe. We'll apply a topical numbing agent to your target treatment areas to reduce discomfort caused by the needle. The injections are made using a very fine needle (a 30 gauge), so discomfort is minimal. Just a few tiny pokes are needed per area, and the entire treatment will only take a few minutes

BOTOX Cosmetic Recovery and Results After the treatment, we'll give you some BOTOX Cosmetic aftercare instructions to take home with you. The injection site may be a bit red with some slight swelling and/or bruising, but this will subside within a few days. You'll be able to return to your usual daily activities right away. BOTOX Cosmetic results usually take 24 to 48 hours to appear, and final results can take up to two weeks. The results can last on average from 3 to 5 months, and vary from patient to patient. You will notice that gradual movement of the treatment area will return if you do not receive another injection treatment. It's been noted that over time, when patients keep up with their scheduled injections, the results last longer, and the time between subsequent treatments may be extended.

Common BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment Areas BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to treat a few specific areas of the face, including: Upper Forehead Lines – The horizontal lines on the forehead are caused by raising the eyebrows, which is due to the contraction of the frontalis muscle. Raising the eyebrows is often a result of surprise or worry, or simply to gain clearer vision. Those with heavy brows and lids may engage in this motion more often, which can cause wrinkles to form earlier, and be deeper.

Crow's Feet – A muscle called the orbicularis oculi is what makes it possible for us to blink, close our eyes, and squint. It's located around the eyelid, and extends to the temple and upper part of the cheek. Years of moving the eyelids and squinting in bright sunlight eventually cause lateral canthal lines, more commonly known as crow's feet. Frown Lines – Who knew such tiny muscles could cause so much trouble? The corrugator supercilii are located in the forehead and around the eyes, and most notably, at the beginning of the eyebrows near the bridge of the nose. Every time we frown or make a confused or worried expression, these tiny muscles contract, bringing the eyebrows together, and causing deep vertical furrows just above the nose.

Wrinkle Types Treated with BOTOX Cosmetic As we age, our faces develop two distinct types of wrinkles: static and dynamic. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles, but you have other options for static wrinkles Dynamic Wrinkles – These lines and wrinkles form as a result of muscle movement. Every time we smile, frown, laugh, cry, or make any other kind of facial expression, the muscles contract, and skin is pulled, pushed and folded. Over time, this repetitive movement causes lines, wrinkles and furrows on the face. Because BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the chemical signal that allows for nerve impulses to be sent to the muscle and cause movement, it's best for treating dynamic wrinkles.

Slide 9

Static Wrinkles – Even when the muscles in the face aren't moving, lines and wrinkles are being formed, and are called static wrinkles. They result from the skin's natural aging process, which means decreased elasticity and thinner skin, both of which make it more susceptible to wrinkling. Because static wrinkles are not a result of muscle movement, BOTOX® Cosmetic is not an effective treatment. Instead, dermal fillers are a better option to plump and smooth the skin.
