About BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, resulting in a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance. This treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery, and is effective for treating:
- Eyes: When BOTOX injections are administered around the eyes, the appearance of crow’s feet and other wrinkles are reduced or altogether eliminated.
- Brows: Facial expressions can result in wrinkling of the brow over time. Many patients are concerned that they appear constantly upset or angry because of the wrinkles between the eyes. BOTOX Cosmetic is an excellent non-surgical alternative to a brow lift procedure. By reducing deep, stubborn lines, you can appear happier and more refreshed.
- Forehead: As the aging process continues, deep horizontal lines in the forehead can become more common. By administering BOTOX, the underlying muscles become more relaxed. As a result, the lines caused by these formerly overactive muscles disappear.
- Jaw Contours: BOTOX can even smooth the jaw contour in patients with oversized masseter muscles. Therefore, patients with larger square-shaped jaws can achieve a softer oval appearance.
Because BOTOX Cosmetic injections are non-surgical and minimally invasive, there is virtually zero recovery time required.
What is Recovery Like?
Because BOTOX Cosmetic injections are non-surgical and minimally invasive, there is virtually zero recovery time required. Most patients find they can resume normal activity right away. Best of all, the treatment can be performed in our office in less than one hour.
Is BOTOX Cosmetic Affordable?
The cost of BOTOX injections can vary depending on how many areas will be treated. Cost can also differ slightly depending on the doctor you choose to perform the procedure. BOTOX is incredibly cost-effective when compared to traditional plastic surgery procedures like a face lift, and many patients find it is all they need for treating wrinkles.
How Long Do Treatments Last?
BOTOX is effective for temporarily blocking the signals between the nerves and muscles. This effect will wear off eventually, however. For this reason, most patients prefer to have treatments performed every three or four months.
You can get the most out of your BOTOX treatments by following a couple of guidelines between visits. First of all, it is important to adopt an excellent skincare regimen. The staff at San Antonio Plastic Surgery Center can help you choose products that will work well with your skin type. Secondly, you must avoid excessive sun exposure, especially on the day of your procedure, as this can exacerbate any redness, discoloration, or tenderness. Spending a normal amount of time in the sun is perfectly fine. However, it is always important to apply sufficient amounts of sunscreen to protect your skin.
