How Does BOTOX work?
While we offer a wide range of cosmetic enhancement options, BOTOX is popular mainly for its ability to erase crow’s feet, deep creases in the forehead, and frown lines. These lines are actually formed as a result of the muscles contracting in response to the often unconscious facial expressions people make in their everyday lives. While often referred to as frown lines, they can arise from hours of deep focus or even squinting our eyes.
BOTOX injections relax these muscles by blocking signals from the nerves, allowing the skin to spread out and dissolve the wrinkles and lines. Most often used to soften forehead creases, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity respond better to other cosmetic options Dr. Klement offers such as Juvederm.
The BOTOX Process
Before conducting her examination, Dr. Klement is sure to obtain a thorough medical history. Receiving BOTOX injections is quick, causes little to no pain, and full results can be expected within a week. After treatment, you are instructed not to rub the area for 12 hours or lay flat for five to keep the BOTOX from spreading into unintended areas and causing preventable side-effects. We advise patients to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment and to cease any ingestion of aspirin or other anti-inflammatory two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.
BOTOX Side Effects
Temporary bruising is the most common side-effect of BOTOX, but a small percentage of patients may experience headaches that resolve in 24 to 48 hours. While rare, some people have developed eyelid drooping typically caused by rubbing the area or laying down too soon after the procedure but this resolves within three weeks.
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or have a neurological disease should not use Botox.
How Long Does BOTOX last?
After four to six months, muscle contraction gradually returns and lines and wrinkles start to re-appear. With re-treatment, however, over time they often appear softer because the muscles have learned to relax.
