Botox injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around the world. An innovative way of reversing the effects of aging, it uses Botulinum toxin to carefully paralyze the muscles underneath the skin. Botox can also be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines (such as crows feet) and frown lines. A treatment Dr. Schalit and his team offer here at the practice, it is FDA approved.
An injectable neuromodulator, it relaxes the nerve to muscle imbalance and stops any wrinkles from forming – whether they are on the forehead or around the eyes. Each Botox treatment will typically take between 10 to 15 minutes to perform, depending on the size of the area and amount of units required.
Once complete, you should be able to see significant results within 7 days of your treatment. These results can last up to 4 months, but this will vary from person to person.
Not only are these long-term results a reason behind its popularity, but it is also a renowned treatment as there’s no downtime associated with it; meaning that you can get back to your routine immediately afterward. You may notice mild redness and swelling around the injection site, however, this will usually disappear within 30 minutes of the treatment.
