Botox is one of the most exciting and revolutionary anti-aging products available today. The purified form of neuromuscular toxin literally stops wrinkle-forming muscles in their tracks, giving you a tight, smooth facial appearance that looks years younger. Some patients have gone so far as to compare the results to those of browlift or eyelid rejuvenation. Treatment is quick and convenient, and can often be scheduled during a lunch break. Facial fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse or Belotero can improve and erase the appearance of wrinkles and lines and make you look younger and beautiful.
Botox treatment is usually performed in our office using topical numbing agent. Treatment usually lasts about 20 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of Botox needed.
Our experienced Doctors will evaluate your facial structures to determine where to place the Botox injections. First, he cleanses the area and prepares it for treatment. He uses a very fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox into the muscles that contract to form wrinkles and fine lines. The Botox product blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract, temporarily smoothing lines and wrinkles. The injections are not typically painful, though you may feel a slight prick.
Depending on the areas of your face that need rejuvenation, our doctors may inject the product between your eyebrows, along your forehead or around the outside of your eyes (into the crow’s feet).
The common areas of correction are lips, nasolabial and facial folds, as well as lines and wrinkles around the eyes. After administering the injections, doctors may provide an ice pack to soothe any discomfort or prevent swelling.
After your Botox treatment, you may experience minor redness or swelling, but these side effects will quickly subside. You will be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately, although it’s best to refrain from strenuous activity or exercise for the rest of the day. You will also need to avoid massaging or rubbing the treated area, as this could cause the Botox to spread to other areas of your face and cause complications.
Botox results typically last three to five months; after the effects of Botox wear off, you should schedule repeat treatment. If you are happy with your results, we can help you get on a schedule of regular treatments so you look fresh-faced and relaxed all the time!Visit us for more Treatments
“ I have been treated for laser hair removal by Maya Skin Doctors. My treatments have included under arms, upper lip, and bikini areas. During my initial appointment the doctor took the time to explain in full the treatment, the procedure and what to expect. I felt confident that I was in good hands when I left my consultation. After receiving treatment for under arms I decided to proceed with other treatments. It is such a convenience to not have to shave anymore. I will continue to seek treatments from Maya Skin as I find her caring and professional.”
