Botox cosmetic uses an anti-wrinkle treatment that reduces moderate to severe frown lines. Botox Cosmetic is created using the neurotoxin botulinum which eliminates wrinkles by preventing facial muscles to contract and relax while keeping facial expression unaffected. This smoothes out wrinkles by preventing the contraction of the underlying facial muscles, thus making it harder for them to form new wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is injected into the skin and works by blocking nerve signals to certain muscles of the face that cause those movements. Botox Cosmetic isn’t just used for anti-aging purposes, it helps with other problems as well such as migraines and overactive bladders. This injection also reduces excessive sweating and certain muscle spasms (chronic migraine and overactive bladder.)
Botox Cosmetic is injected into the skin with a very thin needle. A topical cream anesthetic is first applied to avoid any discomfort during the procedure. The treatment takes about an hour, and most people prefer to get it done in two sessions so they can take some time off work in between. “I love Botox Cosmetic because it’s completely natural and I don’t need to worry about the side effects,” said one satisfied customer at Wellington Revive. “I’m really happy with how it keeps my skin looking young and fresh.”
Wellington dermatologists recommend Botox Cosmetic for you. As one of the leading cosmetic injectors in Wellington, our team of certified dermatologists and aesthetic practitioners is committed to helping you rejuvenate your look with Botox Cosmetic injections. Botox Cosmetic is a safe injection procedure that can minimize fine lines and wrinkles on the face caused by repetitive facial movements or natural aging forces. It can be used near the eyes, forehead, and mouth to help smooth out telltale signs of aging. Botox Cosmetic is also a good injection for acne scars and treating wrinkles around the neck area.
The results of Botox Cosmetic typically last three or more months but will vary depending on your body’s metabolism and your skin’s anatomy.
Although Botox Cosmetic is considered a safe treatment, there are some risks associated with the injection of the neurotoxin. Immediately following your procedure you may experience some pain, redness, and swelling of the injected area of skin. In rare cases, bruising of the face has been known to occur as well. Furthermore, since Botox Cosmetic temporarily weakens the facial muscles, smile lines will be diminished by your injected wrinkles. This treatment is not for everyone since Botox Cosmetic cannot reverse any types of skin conditions or fix sagging neck skin which needs to be treated with a different procedure.
Patients with allergies to dairy products, fermented foods, or soybeans should not receive Botox Cosmetic injections. Also, if you are pregnant you should not undergo this treatment nor should you have an injection done while breastfeeding. If you suffer from a heart condition or eye disease such as Horner’s Syndrome then botox is also off-limits for you.
