What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX is one of the most well-known, extensively studied aesthetic, anti-wrinkle treatments on the market today. This injectable is FDA-approved to treat both crow’s feet and frown lines. Patients can take comfort knowing that it has been the subject of over 400 different clinical studies. More than 10 million vials of BOTOX have been sold in the U.S. alone since 2002. Why not join the scores of patients getting beautiful, anti-aging results from simple and affordable BOTOX injections?
How Does it Work?
Facial wrinkles and folds are caused by a variety of different genetic, environmental, and internal factors. BOTOX addresses one of the most common causes of these signs of aging—muscle contractions. Every day, everyone moves their facial movements while speaking, eating, or expressing themselves, all of which require the movement of facial muscles. Over time, these repeated contractions cause the face to form wrinkles and fine lines, particularly around the eyes, mouth, brows, and forehead.
BOTOX is formulated with a substance called botulinum toxin. When injected into the facial muscles, it causes them to slow down and relax, inhibiting them from contracting fully. This allows the fine lines and folds above them to temporarily smooth and soften, giving patients a more youthful looking appearance. Because this substance only stays in the body for about four months, periodic injections of BOTOX are necessary to maintain any positive changes.
What Is The Treatment Process Like?
Each BOTOX injection session takes no longer than 30 minutes to complete and causes patients little to no downtime. While itching, bruising, swelling, muscle stiffness, or a rash may occur after treatment, these usually subside within a few days. Within the first 24 hours after treatment, most patients begin to see dramatic improvements in the appearance of their wrinkles and fine lines.
Medical Aesthetics of Virginia is proud to bring this effective injectable treatment to our facial spa in Norfolk, VA.
