Botox Treatment in Reading
What is Botox?
BOTOX is an FDA-approved injection treatment used to help prevent, smooth, and reduce moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines. BOTOX, a purified protein derived from the botulinum toxin, works by blocking the nerve impulses and weakening the muscles that cause wrinkles. This provides a smoother and refreshed appearance.
The treatment process is incredibly quick and convenient. The full results are settled in 2 weeks, but you will begin to notice a reduction of your wrinkles within the first 24-48 hours. It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
Our goal is to help you ultimately rejuvenate your skin’s natural youthfulness to help you feel younger and more confident.
What Causes Wrinkles?
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox can also be used to prevent future wrinkles from forming.
What Does Botox Treat?
MODERATE TO SEVERE FROWN LINES: When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your practitioner will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.
MODERATE TO SEVERE CROW’S FEET: When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing lines referred to as crow’s feet. Your practitioner will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.
MODERATE TO SEVERE FOREHEAD LINES: When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your practitioner will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.
What Can I Expect During a Botox Treatment?
Once the initial consultation is complete, the practitioner can determine the exact dose and locations of the treatment. A topical numbing agent or ice can be applied beforehand per the patients request. The practitioner then carefully administers the BOTOX with a tiny syringe into the targeted muscles. The entire treatment process is incredibly quick and the patient is free to carry on normal activities without the need for recovery or downtime.
What Can I Expect from The Results?
The reduction of your wrinkles become visible within 24 to 48 hours after injections. However, you can see how the injections will prevent the face from creating the lines that caused the wrinkle in the first place. BOTOX remains effective for up to 4 months and can last longer when the treatment is done routinely as maintenance. Some patients return for anti-wrinkle injections every 3 months, which is ideal for long-lasting and effective wrinkle prevention.
