All About That Botox
Botox® is a type of cosmetic injection with the potential to give you younger, less tired looking skin. It is the only cosmetic injection treatment that can improve the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles on the face.
Moreover—medically approved in 78 countries worldwide—it is the most trusted form of medical aesthetic treatment in the industry.
A Treatment You Can Trust
According to studies, since 2002 approximately 10.9 million vials of Botox® have been sold in the United States alone. These kinds of results have caused Botox® to become the #1 selling cosmetic injection product in the world.
Having been evaluated by clinical trials and over 417 articles in scientific and medical journals, it is no wonder that cosmetic injection providers like the Mitchell Eye Center in Boca Raton, FL are proud to offer Botox® treatment.
How Does Botox® Work?
Through the years, your natural facial expressions cause your skin to contract, furrow, and fold in different places. Facial wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet are formed because of these repeated facial muscle contractions, which accumulate inherently over time.
Botox® cosmetic injections, like those offered at Mitchell Eye Center’s Boca Raton office, target these muscles directly. The presence of Botox® injected into the affected muscles will temporarily reduce muscle activity and, thus, smooth out those regions of the face.
Some Common Questions About Botox®:
What’s in Botox?
One of the most important ingredients in Botox® is Botulinum toxin — a natural protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
How Quickly Will I Notice Results?
Every Botox® patient is different, but many begin to notice results within two days. These results can last up to four months.
Does it Hurt?
Most patients compare the feeling of a Botox® cosmetic injection to a pinch. However, if you are nervous about discomfort, be sure to ask your provider for some numbing cream beforehand.
What Will Happen to My Face After Botox® Treatment?
You will still look like yourself after Botox® treatment, just with smoother skin and less noticeable wrinkles and lines at the spots of injection. Sitcoms or films that portray frozen-faced Botox® patients are misrepresentations. If you are treated by a licensed professional like those at the Mitchell Eye Center, you shouldn’t lose the ability to show facial expressions.
