Botox® treatments are simple, non-surgical injections that can provide a wide range of benefits to patients. Botox® can be used cosmetically or therapeutically.
Cosmetic Botox® provides visible improvement to many areas of the face, with results lasting anywhere from 2-4 months. The effects of Botox® are usually noticed after a few days, with the best results in 10-14 days. The procedure is quick and virtually painless, with no need for anesthetic. With generally no down time, it’s a great lunch time treatment!
Botox® used for therapeutic treatments can be administered on many parts of the body including hands, feet and underarms for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), unable to be treated by conventional methods. Injections can also be used for nerve disorders such as crossed eyes (strabismus) and uncontrollable eye blinking (blepharospasm).
Botox® works in the same way for both types of treatments, the protein produced by the clostridium botulism bacterium (Botox®), relaxes targeted muscles. By relaxing the muscles it allows the facial lines to soften, appearing smoother and younger. Muscle relaxation also allows the spasms of the nerves to settle, reducing the blinking.
