As we age, our expression may appear worried, stressed, or even angry. Botox works by blocking the nerve signal to the muscles beneath the skin that cause dynamic wrinkles.
Botox is a quick in office treatment performed with small injections. You will see a gradual onset of results between two and fourteen days.
Areas commonly treated with botox:
Frown lines; the frown area between the eyebrows commonly called the "11's"
Vertical lip lines
Masseter muscle (jaw line contouring/may improve clenching and grinding)
Do not participate in any strenuous exercise for a minimum of 24 hours.
Do not massage or manipulate injection sites for 24 hours.
Bruising may occur and typically resolves within 14 days.
Allow 14 days for your wrinkle relaxers to fully set in before judging the final result. While results may come sooner other clients may find that it will take up to 14 days to achieve full effect.
Botox is FDA indicated to last about 3 months. However individual results may vary.
