Facial lines and wrinkles can be caused by frowning, smiling, squinting, high sunlight exposure and may even an inevitable effect of aging. Relieve the stress and relax your wrinkles with Botox.
Botulinum toxin type A, also known as Botox, is an injectable that blocks nerve signals to the muscles to smooth wrinkles in the face. Botox injections are commonly used on crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, furrowed brows and the neck.
Am I a good candidate?
If you have lines around your mouth, eyebrows and forehead, you may be a great candidate for Botox. You must be healthy and a non-smoker for Botox injections.
How are Botox injections performed?
For your Botox injection procedure, Dr. Basile will carefully select the injection spots based on your target areas. In less than fifteen minutes, the botulinum toxin type A will be injected with a small needle, weakening the contracted muscles that are causing your fine lines and wrinkles.
Results and Recovery
Smoothed wrinkles can be seen within a few days, but may take up to one week. Results may vary, but most patients’ injections last between three and four months. Some patients may experience some bruising, swelling, minor discomfort, temporary facial drooping, headache or nausea.
