What is Botox®?
Botox® is one of the most popular names in injectables fillers and works by delivering muscle-relaxing toxins to areas in the face that are susceptible to wrinkles. Wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contractions in the face, which worsen over time. When Botox® is injected, it blocks nerve activity, which reduces activity in these wrinkle-causing muscles. As a result, the wrinkles become less visible and less likely to worsen. Most patients choose Botox® for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines, and crow's feet.
How is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is administered using the smallest needle on the market. Each injection is performed by Dr. Anh Vu, and is placed with the utmost precision and care. A few injections will be made into the patient's desired treatment area. The treatment is surprisingly comfortable, and most patients experience no pain whatsoever. A Botox® treatment is typically performed in about 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect After My Botox® Treatment?
Botox® works instantly, so most patients will notice results before even leaving our office. There may be some mild swelling or redness around the injection site, but this typically fades within a day or two. There is no downtime or recovery period after a Botox® treatment, so patients can resume work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment. Patients can expect results from Botox® to last between three and six months.
