What is Botox®?
Wrinkles, and in particular hyperdynamic lines, are the most common and usually the first indicator of an aging face. Proven to be safe when used as directed by a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Nimtz, and approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles, Botox® cosmetic is the purified form of botulin toxin type A, produced by the bacteria clostridium botulin. Botox® simply prevents certain muscle groups from overacting and creating folds in your facial skin. It has no downtime, and you can expect to see results by the fourth or fifth day after your injections.
What are the Benefits of Botox®
Botox® cosmetic is a substance that relaxes the muscles that cause hyperdynamic lines. Interference in the action of these muscles makes folds and wrinkles become much less noticeable. These skin-smoothing results last up to three to six months with Botox®. Botox® is the only FDA-approved injectable medication used to treat the furrows that are due to over activity of these facial expression muscles.
Who is a Candidate for a Botox®?
Wrinkles are not just a problem confined to older patients, as they can be due to either skin laxity with the loss of tone or over activity of the underlying muscles. There are multiple muscles in the forehead and around your eyes that function to give the upper one-third of the face character and appearance. Botox® cosmetic does not change the way your face looks at all. It simply prevents certain muscle groups from over acting and thus creating folds in the upper thirds of the face.
What is the Procedure for a Botox®?
Botox® is simple to administer and causes minimal discomfort while yielding maximal results in three to six days after injection. First, a topical anesthetic is placed on the skin to minimize any discomfort that you might experience from the injections, then several tiny injections of Botox® will be injected into the small muscles of your forehead and around your eyes. Afterwards a cold pack will be placed directly on the injection sites to help with any discomfort and redness, and you can return to work right away after your treatment!
