Need Botox or Dysport? Say hello to the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure. BOTOX® is an amazing solution in a syringe that quickly and safely smooths the lines and wrinkles associated with expression. FDA approved in 2002, it continues to be the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in the U.S. Botox injections improve and soften the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles with no downtime. You’ll still maintain your ability to frown, smile, and look surprised, but without the creases and wrinkles!
How Does A Botox Treatment Work?
Botox is an injectable purified protein that stops the contraction of muscles around the injection site. A minute quantity in key muscles virtually erases wrinkles located on the face, like expression lines around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead. The Botox protein stops nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. When the muscles responsible for wrinkle formation can’t contract, the wrinkle quickly fades. Botox won’t improve static wrinkles, only those related to expression.
A very small needle is used in the treatment and the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes, after which you can return to most normal activities. Other than a chance of light bruising or slight swelling, there is no downtime. Botox has been used cosmetically for over a decade and has one of the best safety profiles in medicine, with very few side effects.
Is Underarm Sweating Limiting Your Wardrobe Choices?
Underarm sweating, and the effects it can have on lifestyle choices and general self esteem can be very difficult to deal with.
Botox is a highly effective, FDA-approved treatment for underarm sweating not adequately managed by topical agents. Botox injections help control underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the sweating stops. In a clinical study, the effect of Botox for underarm sweating lasted an average of 6 months.
How Long Will The Botox Treatment Last?
Results from your Botox treatment will become apparent within 3 to 10 days. Then, over the next 3 to 4 months the Botox will gradually lose its potency, and you’ll require more to keep the desired effect. Most Botox patients choose to maintain the treatment, having injections 3 or 4 times a year.
There is indication that the duration of treatment benefits increases over time, so you may require less frequent injections in the future. Botox is also the perfect compliment to many other cosmetic procedures. It’s very target specific and helps to diminish stubborn expression lines that may not respond to other forms of treatment.
