Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein
(botulinum toxin A) that has been FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of the wrinkles known as frown lines (between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet (outside of the eyes) in both women and men. Botox® is one of the most widely studied cosmetic treatments in the world and is currently used in 78 countries. These clinical trials demonstrate the effectiveness of Botox® injections, and 97% of the nearly 12 million people in the U.S. who have received Botox® say they are pleased with their results.
How Does Botox® Work?
The repetitive movements your muscles make every time you squint or frown cause what we call crow’s feet and frown lines. Therefore, Botox® works by restricting the movements of these muscles. When you come to our Southington, Connecticut, medical spa for Botox®, we would inject the protein directly into the muscles found between your eyebrows and around your eyes. Once there, the Botox® will block the nerve impulses to those muscles, and when there is less muscle activity, there are fewer visible wrinkles.
Individual results may vary.
What to Expect After Botox® Injections
The procedure of receiving Botox® is minimally invasive, takes about ten minutes, and most of our Southington, Connecticut patients say that it merely feels like a pinch. You can return to your regular daily activities immediately upon leaving our office.
While some of our Southington, CT clients do notice an immediate change, most of them say that it takes between 24-48 hours to really notice a difference. Over the next 30 days, you will continue to see daily improvements in the smoothness of the wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead.
After a Botox® injection, you will still look like yourself, just younger—and you will not lose the ability to show expressions, contrary to popular belief. You can expect to see these results for approximately four months, at which time you can come back for your Botox® treatment.
