What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that’s been successfully utilized in conventional and aesthetic medicine to treat medical conditions such as muscle spasms, excessive sweating, or chronic migraines, and to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for more youthful-looking skin.
Botox comes from botulinum toxin, but it’s a completely safe neurotoxin and beneficial in controlled, minor doses. You might choose Botox to achieve smoother skin and target specific problem wrinkles.
Your Marvel Cosmetic specialist injects Botox into specific facial muscles to block the nerve signals that trigger your muscle contractions. The temporary relaxation of these muscles successfully decreases or eliminates the wrinkles created by those muscles.
What can Botox Treat?
Marvel Cosmetic provides Botox to treat different types of noticeable facial wrinkles, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead furrows
Your Marvel Cosmetic specialist carefully targets a few muscles to diminish wrinkles while leaving your other facial muscles completely unaffected. This way, your results are natural-looking.
Marvel Cosmetic also provides Dysport® and other effective dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables.
Most people are suitable candidates for Botox. If you’re pregnant or have certain neurological conditions, you’re not a suitable candidate for Botox treatment.
What should I expect?
Your Marvel Cosmetic specialist answers your questions, reviews your medical history, and ensures you don’t have any medical conditions that could interfere with Botox or another neurotoxin.
Using an ultra-fine needle, your specialist carefully and gently injects a minor amount of Botox. Your specialist usually administers about 4-10 injections, depending on the treatment areas.
Following Botox treatment, you might notice some mild swelling or redness in the treatment area, but this should soon subside.
Botox doesn’t involve any downtime, so you can get right back to your day and cover any redness with makeup.
How long do the results of Botox last?
Impressively, you can expect to see results from your Botox treatment in about 24-48 hours. Your body metabolizes Botox over time, and the effect wears off, usually in about four months.
During the consultation, your Marvel Cosmetic specialist can discuss Botox in more detail and create a personalized treatment plan to assist you in achieving your cosmetic objectives.
When your Botox results fade, you can always get another Botox treatment to maintain your smoother, wrinkle-free skin and more youthful look.
