BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical procedure that softens expression lines and smooths wrinkles helping you to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Botox provides both treatment and prevention of wrinkles with regular injections over time.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Botox is a neuromodulator that utilizes a natural, purified protein administered at very low doses to temporarily relax muscles that cause persistent wrinkles and lines to develop over time. While results are significant, it will not radically change your facial appearance. Injecting Botox into targeted facial muscles can minimize even the most stubborn of wrinkles, leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful.
WHAT AREAS CAN BOTOX ADDRESS?
-Crow's feet (lines around the eyes)
-Bunny lines (beside the nose)
-Lip lines (around the mouth)
-Vertical bands of neck
Botox can also be used as a way to prevent new wrinkles from developing or limit current wrinkles from becoming more severe.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY BOTOX TREATMENT?
Botox procedures are relatively quick and minimally invasive. No anesthesia or downtime is required. The treatment starts with an in-office consultation where Dr. Fisher will assess your individual facial anatomy, treatment goals, and develop a tailored treatment plan to provide the your desired end results. Botox is then injected into targeted facial muscles using an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated.
IS DOWNTIME REQUIRED?
No. You are able to return to work or normal daily activities directly after treatment. We do recommend not lying flat for 4 hours after treatment and avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
IS BOTOX PAINFUL?
Botox injections are fast and feel like a small sting. There is no pain afterward and no anesthesia is required ahead of time.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Yes! Botox is ideal for almost everyone who desires improvement and prevention of wrinkles.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The effects of Botox starts to appear within a few days and continue to improve until their full affect is achieved within 14 days of treatment.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
While result duration may vary, Botox results typically last anywhere from 3 to 4 months from treatment. The effects gradually fade over this time and you may begin to notice movement returning to treated areas.
WILL I STILL LOOK NATURAL?
With the precision and care that Dr. Fisher uses during the injection process, patients are left with a natural yet more youthful, refreshed, and appropriate look.
