Acne Treatment Options for the Healthy Skin You’ve Always Wanted
Millions of men and women make BOTOX® part of their regular cosmetic maintenance routine, all BOTOX is Physician administered at Pasqua South Medical Aesthetics and we are here to help you find a treatment plan that works for you.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
Repeatedly contracting certain muscles in your face, like those around your mouth and eyes, leads to fine lines and wrinkles over time. This procedure works by injecting these muscles with small amounts of a pure botulinum toxin protein created from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum which temporarily slows these muscles down. With this reduced muscle activity, you’ll begin to notice the fine lines and wrinkles in these areas begin to soften.
Does it hurt?
Patients sometimes note that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections feel like a quick pinch. Be sure to talk to your BOTOX® specialist before your treatment to ask about numbing the area ahead of time.
There is little to no downtime with this procedure, and patients can proceed with their usual activities after treatment.
When will I see results?
Each treatment takes about thirty minutes, and you may begin to notice an improvement in crow’s feet and frown lines within one to seven days. Results last up to three months.
What are the side effects?
In clinical studies, just 1% of patients had swelling around their eyelids after BOTOX® injections for crow’s feet, and 3% of patients had some eyelid drooping after injections to treat frown lines. Some other side effects that have been noted include headaches, neck pain, eye problems, allergic reactions, and more.
As with this or any medical procedure, be sure to consult with your doctor to make sure it’s right for you.
