If you are young, but beginning to explore your options for cosmetic skin correction or preventative maintenance of your skin – perhaps you should consider beginning treatment with Botox Cosmetic.
Botox Cosmetic has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for wrinkles. Botox is FDA approved to prevent the formation of new wrinkles, among many other uses. Botox is a clear liquid that is injected into the small muscles of your face. Your physician will identify the specific muscles to be targeted based on where your new wrinkles are beginning to form. It is common to receive injections on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the corners of the mouth and eyes.
Once injected, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles, which prevents them from moving and forming new wrinkles. Each treatment with Botox can be expected to last between 4-6 months. Botox is not a permanent solution for the correction of wrinkles.
It takes less than thirty minutes to receive Botox injections and there is no downtime associated with treatment. There are risks associated with treatment from any botulinum toxin, be sure to discuss these risks with Dr. Garcia prior to receiving treatment.
As with any injection you may experience slight discomfort during the treatment but this will quickly subside. You may also see small amounts of blood and swelling at the injection site, however these effects also subside quickly.
