Botox is an injectable drug that smooths and tightens your skin to eliminate wrinkles and lines. As the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States, Botox injections have helped patients everywhere achieve their desired look and even treat migraines and other conditions.
The active ingredient in Botox is found in nature called Botulinum toxin. The toxin temporarily paralyzes your muscles when it is injected into them. Your wrinkles are caused by overworking muscles, so paralyzing them makes your wrinkles and lines appear smoother.
Botox can also treat the muscles responsible for migraines, excessive sweating, bladder disorders, and more. Its most popular and well-known use, however, it is cosmetic.
Botox can improve your appearance in many ways. You may choose to get Botox injections to:
Treatment requires repetition every 3 to 5 months for most patients to maintain their youthful look.
Botox is FDA-approved and very safe when administered by an experienced medical professional. The procedure can be mildly uncomfortable and you may experience some temporary swelling, headaches, or fatigue. Because of this, it is recommended that you reserve some time for healing after your injections. You may proceed with your daily activities after the injections, but it is important for you to follow instructions for aftercare to preserve your results.
You should schedule your Botox injections at least two weeks before any special events so that you’ll have time to heal and look your best. Before your appointment, you’ll need to avoid drinking alcohol and taking anti-inflammatory medications as these can interfere with your results.
If you’re tired of seeing wrinkles in the mirror, Botox injections can give you the smooth look that you want. To learn more about Botox, call or schedule an appointment online at Radiance MedSpa DC today.
