BOTOX®

Reverse those frown lines.

Fine lines, frown lines, how-did-those-get-there lines. Whatever you call them, a few minutes of Botox can smooth wrinkles on your forehead, in-between your eyes, and crow’s feet.

 

This is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment that requires zero downtime, so you can come in and erase those signs of aging on your lunch break.

 

We use a very fine needle to inject Botox into the facial muscles responsible for those annoying wrinkles, totally relaxing them and reducing their ability to contract. Don’t worry, you’ll be out the door and on your way to feeling refreshed and radiating confidence in no time.

What is Botox?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.

Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime. Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles.

The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore reduce it’s ability to contract, and form unsightly wrinkles.

How Does It Work?

Targeted muscle restriction reduces lines.

Over time, the muscles above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. Normally when we squint, frown, or make other facial expressions, our nerves release a neurotransmitter chemical, known as acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter binds to receptors within the muscle to make it contract. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox and Dysport work by binding to the acetylcholine receptors, and blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles.

After a muscle has been injected, the nerves still send the signal to the muscle to contract, and the acetylcholine is still released, but is unable to bind to the muscle, resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.

 

The binding process typically begins within about 48 hours from the time it is injected into the muscle. Results typically become noticeable within 7 to 10 days. While results are often most noticeable in dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear when a muscle contracts), it can also help soften wrinkles that are present even without muscle contraction. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

Are Botox injections safe?


BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein when dosage, frequency of treatment & variety of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to ensure you receive the results you are looking for is to only receive injections from a highly experienced provider, such as the medical and nursing professionals at Ideal Image.




When will I see results from my Botox injections?


You shouldn’t expect immediate results from Botox injections. It usually takes between 2-14 days for the injection to take effect. Some people claim to see an immediate change but this is very unlikely and may be just wishful thinking. Your facial muscle may be particularly strong in the area treated and it may take longer to see and feel the effect. If you have very deep lines where Botox is injected then the injection is unlikely to cause the deeper lines to flatten out completely to start with – especially if you are older when you start Botox.




How long does Botox last?


For most of our patients, the effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Many factors can influence how long the effects last. As the product wears off, muscle action returns gradually, and the previously treated lines & wrinkles may begin to reappear, and need to be treated again. With repeated treatment, the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe than before, as the muscles are being trained to relax. Some of these factors that may shorten or lengthen the effects include: - Your age - The condition of your skin and level of sun damage - Your facial structure and expressions - Your diet - Past experience with Botox of other wrinkle relaxers - And more...




Who should not receive Botox injections?


While most people aged 18 to 65 are excellent candidates for Botox and wrinkle relaxers, you should not use Botox if you meet any of the following: - Are pregnant or brestfeeding - Have a skin infection or other condition in the area to be treated - Are allergic to any ingredients in Botox, Dysport, or any other botulinum toxin brand - Have had a facial surgery - Have difficulty swallowing - Have weakness in your forehead muscles - And more...
