Botox is a minimally-invasive injectable designed to combat visible signs of aging on the upper portion of the face. The FDA-approved procedure has already helped over 11-million men and women achieve a more youthful appearance. If you’re bothered by dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions, such as frown lines and crows feet, Botox Cosmetics might be right for you.
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, Botox injections are performed by a licensed medical professional to ensure an optimal outcome each and every time. When performed correctly and at precise dosage and depths, Botox treatments are relatively well-tolerated among the majority of patients. Let’s take a look at what you can expect.
*Individual Results May Vary.
Botox: The Procedure
Botox Cosmetics treatments are fairly simple and straightforward. A fine-gauge needle is used to minimize any discomfort you may have. Depending on the area being treated, your Derma-Tech specialist will strategically place a series of injections at precise locations. The entire procedure typically takes just a few minutes.
For patients with ultra-sensitive skin, ice packs may be helpful before and just after treatment.
Botox: Recovery & Results
Immediately following Botox treatments, you may experience minor swelling or tenderness. Neither of which should be severe enough to stop you from resuming your normal day-to-day routine afterward. The majority of side effects typically subside within a few hours. Although quite rare, it is possible to have a more severe reaction.
You’ll see results from your Botox Cosmetics treatment 7-14 days after treatment. In most cases, patients only need one treatment session to achieve results, which typically last for 3-4 months and in some cases up to 6 months. Botox treatments can safely and effectively be performed periodically to maintain your new youthful appearance.
All-in-all, pain shouldn’t be a determining factor when considering Botox. The procedure is minimally-invasive and comes with very little discomfort or downtime compared to similar anti-aging treatments. In fact, most patients find the insignificant amount of discomfort they experience to be well-worth the end-result.
Botox produces beautiful, natural-looking results. Your Derma-Tech specialist will help determine if Botox is right for you at the time of your in-person consult. They will also discuss available options with patients worried about potential discomfort.
