Sometimes the best-known secrets aren’t secrets at all. When we turn the TV on and see our favorite celebrity on a talk show, we see their smooth, wrinkle-free face. Our first thought is to find out their secret to a smoother face, but their secret is hardly a secret, it’s BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is an FDA approved way to smooth your skin and get rid of those annoying wrinkles that seem to pop up as we age. And here’s the best part, BOTOX® isn’t some unaffordable solution that only super-rich celebrities can have. It’s available in both our Delafield, WI and Sarasota, FL offices. Call today for your initial consultation.
You know the name; now you can experience it for yourself. Instead of focusing on the skin’s reaction to movement as the way to get rid of wrinkles, BOTOX® focuses on the muscles which cause the movements themselves. When injected directly into the muscle, BOTOX® can temporarily restrict that muscle’s ability to work, leaving the skin smooth and wrinkle free.
BOTOX® is used to target dynamic wrinkles or the wrinkles which occur because of the way we manipulate our faces during the day. Dynamic wrinkles happen most often around our mouths and eyes because they are the most expressive parts of the face. Because of this, BOTOX® is especially suitable for treating:
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- Bunny Lines
- And more
During your initial consultation, we’ll explain the best places to use BOTOX® on the face and where it can benefit you most.
Treatment is simple, straightforward and quick. Exactly how long your appointment will take varies based on how many injections you’re receiving, and where they’re located, but most appointments are completed within about an hour’s time.
BOTOX® uses an extremely thin needle to deliver the product, and the needle isn’t placed very deep in the face. Therefore, there isn’t any need for general or local anesthesia. Most patients describe the pain as quick and manageable. If pain is a concern, there are ways to make the process easier with the use of topical numbing creams or ice.
Once your appointment is completed, there are a few important steps you can take to get the most out of your treatment. The first is to take good care of your skin by using sunscreen and moisturizers for a few days. The skin may swell and bruise around the treated areas, and there may be some residual pain. If this is the case, simple over the counter medication can be used as treatment.
Celebrity-worthy skin isn’t just something you see on TV; you can have the same smooth, wrinkle-free face as they do by using BOTOX®. Call our Delafield and Sarasota offices today for your free consultation.
