At some point, you might find yourself looking in the mirror and wondering how you can remove the signs of aging. The aging process causes creases and wrinkles to appear in the face, and they can have a dramatic impact on your appearance.
Unfortunately, it’s virtually impossible to completely eliminate the signs of aging, but with Botox, you can dramatically improve your appearance and fight the effects of aging. Initially, many people spend money on over-the-counter treatments like creams, serums and masks that promise to eliminate your wrinkles. They purchase various types of facial creams and find out that none of them seem to work. However, a lot of people are choosing to take a proactive approach, which involves the use of Botox.
At Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss in Evansville, we can help you turn back the clock and reduce the signs of aging using Botox injections. To find out if Botox is right for you or to schedule your consultation, contact Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss today.
The Power of Botox
If you’re considering Botox injections, it’s important to understand how it works. Botox has been approved by the FDA, and it’s an injectable substance. It’s extracted from Clostridium botulinum, which is a type of bacteria.
It might seem weird that Botox is made from bacteria, but you shouldn’t let such information hold you back. The protein that is taken from the bacteria is purified and sterile, and it’s incredibly effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles on your neck and face.
If you choose to have Botox used on your face, you will receive injections into your facial muscles. The Botox temporarily paralyzes your facial muscles, which reduces strain on soft tissue and skin.
If your facial muscles aren’t constantly contracting, then wrinkles become far less visible. The end result is a younger, smoother looking appearance. In fact, Botox injections can make you look younger almost instantly.
What to Expect
During treatment, most patients experience mild swelling and discomfort. These side effects are usually experienced during and after treatment. However, these side effects rarely disrupt the daily lives of patients.
Botox treatment doesn’t require you to take time off of work, but you always have the option of doing so. As the discomfort and swelling fade, you’ll see the results day after day. The full results of the treatment can take up to seven days to be fully realized.
Sadly, the results of Botox aren’t permanent, but you can expect the results from each treatment to last about six months. After your first treatment, you can plan follow-up treatments with our office.
Every medical procedure comes with risks, and Botox is no exception. Before deciding to get Botox injections, you need to consider the risks. Some of the common risks of the procedure are prolonged swelling or redness, temporary tingling at injection sites and temporary numbness.
There is also the risk that you’ll suffer an allergic reaction to Botox. Fortunately, if you suffer any of the risks, your surgeon will be able to help you.
In virtually every case, the benefits of Botox injections greatly outweigh the minor risks. With regular Botox injections, you can fight the effects of aging, look better and feel much younger.
