Botox Treatment at DermaBare at LifeSpa, Laguna Niguel
What can I expect following the treatment?
Botulinum exotoxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic, is an inhibitor of neuromuscular activity. It blocks the communication between the nerve fiber and the muscle preventing contraction and temporally relaxing the muscle. Botulinum toxin is a safe, effective, and proven method for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Its safety is well established, as it has been used therapeutically for more than 20 years.
Is Botox for me?
If you desire a slight improvement in your look or a “cleaning up” of age-related wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you. It has become a superb option for the patient hesitant to undergo surgery, yet wants to erase the deep creases and furrows of the face. By relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles, you can rid yourself of the heavy tension look or remove a misrepresented, tired and angry appearance. Patients appreciate its subtle improvement and are pleased when their acquaintances are not quite sure why they look better. Following treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can expect to appear more relaxed and rested. BOTOX® Cosmetic is also commonly used to reduce the heavy vertical creases between the eyebrows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and smooth out the crow’s feet area of the eyes. Newer areas that are being treated include the age-defining wrinkles around the mouth, nose and the thick muscle bands of the neck.
When will I see the results and how long will it last?
You can generally expect to see results in 3-5 days, although it may take as long as two weeks. Most people can expect to enjoy the benefits for 3-4 months, and some people will see results lasting up to 6 months.
What is the future of Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic’s indication continues to expand. Currently BOTOX is used to reduce excessive underarm and palm sweating, and is it also being used in adjunction to surgical and laser procedures.
Relief from migraine headaches is a new and interesting indication for BOTOX® Cosmetic, as several innovative ideas continue to be developed for BOTOX® Cosmetic use. Its safety and convenience assures it is here to stay.
