What is BOTOX?
Are you interested in seeing amazing results with BOTOX injections at Vital Aesthetics in Dallas, TX? Dr. Richard Eller and Dr. Michele Cavenee perform BOTOX injections for men and women in the DFW area to prevent or relax muscles wrinkling on the upper face. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements when injected into the facial muscle. To soften visible lines, BOTOX is carefully injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed by our physicians between the brows (glabellar region), around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead. Let's take a look at your age-related skin issues in a private consultation at Vital Aesthetics.
Are BOTOX injections right for me?
BOTOX can be injected in men and women who want to smooth the appearance of lines on their faces nonsurgically. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed. Why? Think about how often you find yourself making facial expressions. BOTOX is a great nonsurgical solution if you have obvious forehead lines or frown lines between your brows or lines around the eyes. If you experience deeper lines, an injectable filler may be a better option. Furthermore, if have severe wrinkles, you may be a better candidate for facelift surgery.
Our BOTOX Injection Technique
BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Vital Aesthetics. If this will be your first time visiting us for BOTOX, please know that we often perform cosmetic injections during the same appointment. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using your upper face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc. This will allow us to determine where the injections will be placed. Your face will be cleaned and prepared for BOTOX to be injected under the skin with a fine needle. Your injection session can be followed by a cool compress to help minimize bruising and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to help make the injections more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes.
After Your Wrinkle Relaxer Injections
After your BOTOX injection, you may return to your daily schedule, but strenuous activity should be postponed for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for at least one night and to avoid touching your face afterward for the best results. The treated sections of your face can appear red, swollen, or bruised for a few days, but you should not experience any serious or lasting side effects. In most cases, it generally takes 5 – 7 days before the final effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You can speak to Dr. Eller or Dr. Cavenee about when to schedule a follow-up appointment at Vital Aesthetics to maintain your results.
