What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment to temporarily reduce moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. So you will look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate-to-severe frown lines.
How does Botox work?
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows can cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX Cosmetic is a quick 10-minute treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Some patients receiving BOTOX Cosmetic report the injections as feeling similar to a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate-to-severe frown lines. BOTOX Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment, the moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines will gradually return.
What should I expect from the results?
You will begin to feel the effects 3-5 days after the treatment, with maximum results achieved at 1-2 weeks. The longevity of Botox depends on three main things: your metabolism, your muscle strength, and how active those muscles are. Some people will metabolize the product very quickly and will, therefore, need injections more often. Similarly, the stronger your muscles are, the more product you will need. Muscles we frequently use, such as the ones around the mouth and eyes, will need to be injected more often since they are more active. Typically, results can last anywhere between 2-4 months.
Will my face look “done” or “unnatural”?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done. At Inbloom Health, we pride ourselves in delivering treatments that produce a natural and beautiful result – so you will look like you, only better!
Do I need to be over 40 to use BOTOX?
It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you; it’s the severity of your lines. The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to the reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Whenever your lines start to bother you, we can help. InBloom Health offers “Baby Botox” for patients who want to use Botox as a wrinkle preventative. Many patients receive this treatment in their 20s and 30s to prevent wrinkles and maintain their youthful appearance.
