What Is BOTOX?
Anytime you look at your face in a mirror, are you bothered by creases and wrinkles on your forehead and in the skin tissue around your eyes? Referred to as dynamic lines, these skin concerns occur due to repetitive expressions, including squinting, frowning, and smiling. As people become older, these wrinkles and lines ultimately become more pronounced and can make them appear fatigued. Thanks to BOTOX Cosmetic treatments, we may be able to temporarily stop the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, Crow's feet, and forehead creases. BOTOX Cosmetic is made from a clean strain of botulinum toxin type A. It works to temporarily disengage the muscles that enable those movements, letting the skin rebound over time. At Smith Medical Group, our skilled team is excited to offer BOTOX as a minimally invasive aesthetic option to help patients achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance. We invite you to reach out to our facility in Chicago, IL to further explore BOTOX treatments.
What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX?
Signs of aging and wrinkles can take away from our other attributes and can make us appear more aged than we are. BOTOX is a good choice for helping you get a younger, polished appearance. Although the outcomes are not forever, you can reap the benefits for a few months before a follow-up treatment. Patients may also get added benefits from BOTOX at Smith Medical Group, including:
- Straightforward maintenance: Patients who want to keep their results for a while can be assured that follow-up treatment sessions are brief and doable for day-to-day schedules.
- Minor pain: BOTOX treatments use a tiny needle, making the treatments seem like a small pinch of the skin.
- Rapid procedures: BOTOX procedures often take as little as 10 minutes.
- Minimal downtime or recovery: Due to its minimally invasive qualities, you can resume your day-to-day routine after appointments.
Should I Get BOTOX?
Individuals seeking a minimally invasive treatment to diminish Crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, or frown lines may be prime candidates for BOTOX services at Smith Medical Group. It can be a great aesthetic option if you are bothered by obvious glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that give you a worn-out or aging facial appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic has grown in popularity among younger adults as well. Though women and men in their 20s and 30s might not yet show the early signs of aging, BOTOX could be utilized as a preventive treatment to head off the natural aging process by temporarily reducing or slowing the development of facial wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
When you visit for your first consultation at Smith Medical Group, we will perform a cosmetic assessment to designate which areas require treatment. Since BOTOX is an efficient, outpatient procedure, your injections can usually be carried out at the same appointment. The formulation will be placed into the designated areas of your brow or upper face using a fine-gauge needle. BOTOX treatment takes approximately 5 – 10 minutes to administer, and many patients experience only mild discomfort (like a pinching or pinprick feeling). After your session, you can leave our practice and go about your daily activities.
What Should I Expect Following BOTOX Treatments?
You may notice some mild redness, bruising, and swelling in the treatment areas immediately following a treatment session, but this shouldn't persist. Our team may suggest that you refrain from rigorous physical activity and abstain from touching the treated areas of your face for until 24 hours later. Within 2 – 3 days, you will probably start to experience smoother, firmer skin. BOTOX can offer up to four months of youthful, natural-looking improvements for most women and men. Our team in Chicago, IL will suggest how frequently you need treatments as part of a customized plan to reach your desired results. Our team can provide you with the estimated price of BOTOX injections, but the cost generally varies, depending on the number of units used.
