Botox® Overview

Botox® is the brand name of the bacterium clostridium botulinum which is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Botox® can also be used to treat other conditions, for example, hyperhidrosis, commonly known as severe sweating, chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder that causes shoulder and neck muscle spasms. 

It can also help with eye issues, such as uncontrollable blinking and eyes that point in different directions.

Botox® is injected into the muscles around the eyes and forehead, which blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles, which causes them to soften and relax, reducing any sight of wrinkles. 

While Botox® is often considered similar to dermal fillers, there is a big difference, as they use different active ingredients and are used on different parts of the face.

Benefits of Botox®

Botox® has been used for decades as a way to treat fine lines and wrinkles, but they are beneficial for the modern person who needs to get treatment quickly and get back to their lives!

Botox® is Non-Surgical

In comparison to surgical procedures, Botox® is a relatively quick injection into the relevant areas and takes a matter of minutes. Because it is a non-invasive procedure and patients don’t need any form of anesthetic, discomfort is minimal, which means the patient can get back to their routine in a really short space of time.

Botox® Can Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles

As so many of us feel self-conscious about getting older, which usually results in those unsightly fine lines and wrinkles, Botox® is an instantaneous treatment that can put our minds at ease. 

While everyone is different and may see the results quickly, Botox® usually takes between 7 and 14 days to show its full results.

Botox® is Long-Lasting

Everybody has a different reaction to Botox®; while Botox® can provide long-lasting results, the effects of Botox® can last between three to four months. 

If you want to maintain your results, you should schedule an injection every three to four months.

Am I a Candidate for Botox®?

You are a good candidate for Botox® if you have a moderate amount of fine lines of wrinkles around the key problem areas of your forehead, and around your eyes. 

Botox® is a good solution for people who have frown lines, also known as furrow lines, but it’s also a very useful treatment for people who suffer extreme hyperhidrosis and wish to undergo this treatment as a way to combat problems that make them feel self-conscious. 

It’s also a great way to prevent problems before they arise. If you see any small hints of wrinkles and fine lines, Botox® can stop these issues before they start!

Botox® is a totally safe and quick treatment that almost anybody can opt for. 

"WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!
Thank you!!!!!"
