Less wrinkles and fine lines with Botox Treatment
As a potent anti-wrinkling agent, Botox is ideal for men and women in their 20’s and 30’s who want to minimize the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet. Working in moderate to severe cases, Botox targets areas where fine lines and wrinkles appear because of repeated facial expressions. The younger a person is, the easier and quicker their skin rebounds after making a face. As skin ages and loses flexibility, springing back becomes harder, thus creating permanent wrinkles. Besides age, other contributing factors include penetration of UV rays and sunlight, regular smoking and alcohol consumption.
Approved and used as a cosmetic treatment in 78 countries*, Botox is well-known and trusted. Evaluated in both Allergan-sponsored clinical trials as well as in over 400 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals, Botox is known to be safe and effective. Most patients see noticeable results in as little as two days after injection, although it could take up to a week. While treatment isn’t permanent, results last three to six months depending on how quickly a person’s body metabolizes it.
Botox treatment procedure works by injecting Botulinum Toxin Type A, or Botox, in the muscles that cause the wrinkle to appear. The serum relaxes the muscle which in turn releases the skin on top, making wrinkles less noticeable or even gone. Locations of treatment vary range from a patient’s forehead to crow’s feet to between eyebrows. In as little as about 10 minutes, Dr. Angelina will discuss your treatment goals, perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas and inject you with Botox. If you’re concerned about discomfort, ice or a topical numbing cream will be administered prior to treatment.
A great benefit of Botox is that you can return to your daily routine nearly immediately. There is no required downtime or recovery – it’s actually often called a lunchtime procedure. Side effects are mild as some patients experience temporary bruising at the injection site.
