Give Yourself the Botox Treatment

Blog | Comments Off on Give Yourself the Botox Treatment

Chances are you’ve heard of Botox before, but you might not know everything it’s used for in the medical field. Botox starts out as a toxin derived from Clostidium botulinum, but it is processed in a form safe for medical use. Botox injections are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Botox injections help to eliminate wrinkles for several months. Botox works by being injected directly into muscles. The toxin freezes the surrounding muscles so they appear tight and youthful. Botox injections do not require any recovery time, and have been used for millions of patients for over a decade.

What to Expect

We will first numb the area, either using a cream or injecting a numbing agent into the skin. Using a small needle, we will then inject the Botox into the treatment area. The number of injections depends on a variety of factors, including the injection site and desired outcome. After the procedure you will be able to return to daily activities and make sure you follow the after treatment care described by our physicians.

After Treatment

Results are typically seen in just a few short days after treatment. Depending on the area and problem being treated, Botox can last for up to 12 months before a patient needs to have another treatment. To maintain youthful appearances, it is best to get regular treatments. We will discuss this further in your visit.

Please let us know if you suffer from any illness or take any medication, such as blood thinners, as these can greatly increase bruising and bleeding. The art of Botox has been perfected here at Key Dental Group. Dr. Heinicke is certified in Botox and has performed the procedure on dozens of satisfied patients.
