Botox and Botox Injections
Botox 20 Unit Special
BOTOX® Cosmetic is very often the first cosmetic procedure people try and has become the leading nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in patient satisfaction. It is an injection treatment that prevents and corrects minor wrinkles. It is a very simple process that is done on an outpatient basis at the Women’s Institute. Botox Injections are the most popular non-surgical treatment performed in the US. The injection, which uses a very tiny needle in order to pinpoint very specific areas, temporarily “freezes” the muscle so that it does not wrinkle.
Botox is actually the common brand name of Botulinum Toxin type A, an established treatment to eliminate or reduce wrinkles on the face. Botox is most commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines. Though Botox is a form of toxin, the very small amounts used for treating patients are safe and ideal for relaxing muscles that contract and form wrinkles on your face. Botox has been used safely for over ten years to treat numerous medical conditions, approved in the US for cosmetic use in 2002.
A good candidate for Botox Injections is someone who has:
- Creases on the forehead
- Lines around the eyes
- Frown lines between the eyes
- Vertical lines around the mouth
What to expect during your initial consultation:
During your appointment at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, you will be examined by a qualified registered nurse (RN) in order to determine your goals and expectations with this procedure. You will also learn about the risks and complications that are associated with Botox Injections and the results you can expect. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding all of your options with facial injectables.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks involved. Some of the rare complications that a patient may experience include headaches, nausea, forehead and eyelid drooping, or flu-like symptoms. The most common side effects include swelling, bleeding, pain, bruising, muscle weakness, numbness, and redness; however, these usually subside after a week.
How is Botox performed?
Botox injections may be performed in an office-based facility, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. The physician or RN will use a fine needle to inject Botox in the desired location(s) on the face. No anesthesia is required and the patient is typically able to return to regular daily activities immediately.
After the treatment:
Patients will see results within a few days following treatment. These results generally last four to six months, at which point you may need to return for additional Botox injections, if you would like longer-lasting results.
