We have laid out some important things that we feel all of our patients should know about Botox.
Botox has become a very common way of enhancing your beauty. Botox helps to smooth out wrinkles, prevent new ones from forming and helps you to look younger. We provide Botox to our customers and the substances used are approved by the FDA for use in the medical field. But what is Botox?
Botulinum Toxin is a toxin that can be injected to reduce one’s facial wrinkles. Botulinum suppresses nerve signals that make facial muscles contract resulting in a reduction in wrinkles. The procedure is very simple and is not time-consuming at all. It is not a surgery and therefore patients can continue with their daily activities right after getting injected. Botox is injected into specific muscles, giving patients natural-looking, smooth skin, helping them look younger and well-rested.
Length of the Effects
Though Botox is a great way to minimize the look of wrinkles, it does not last forever. Most of our patients enjoy their Botox results anywhere between 3 and 4 months after which, they can get repeat treatments to keep up the results. For many of our patients, Botox has become a part of their skincare routine, coming once a quarter. There are discounts available through our office and www.brilliantdistinctionsprogram.com for patients who regularly get Botox.

It is Not a Filler
Botox and fillers are different treatments. Many people associate the two together. Dermal fillers help to smooth out the skin by plumping it up. Fillers are often used for augmentation of the lips, cheeks, chin, and hands. Botox is a neuromodulator, meaning that it helps to stop the muscles from contracting in order to give a smooth appearance. If you are wanting to add volume to the skin, ask about receiving filler at your next appointment.
Where is it Used?
Botox has been cleared for many different uses. Most commonly, for the use of wrinkles and crow’s feet. Botox is injected around the eyes, in the brow furrows, and on the forehead as well to address horizontal wrinkles and lines.
Are You a Candidate for Botox?
Almost anyone can get Botox. Most people start to get Botox injections in their late 20’s and early 30’s. People who should not get this treatment include pregnant women, people with neuromuscular problems and skin diseases. While the substance is safe and is approved by the FDA it can have some side effects such as headaches, bruising, or swelling at the injection site, but all should go away within a day or two.
