Botox® Cosmetic is a popular cosmetic treatment performed by a Doctor at Yana Skin Care to replenish your youthful features and make you feel renewed. Botox is injected into the facial muscles to relax and improve the look of wrinkles and fine lines. . These customized injections reduce deep lines on the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines in the brow area. Treatments are also available for underarms (excessive sweating). Botox Cosmetic is the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world today with over 4 million procedures done last year alone. This is the only treatment of its kind that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
How Does Botox work?
The procedure is usually comfortable and requires no anesthesia, although some patients choose to numb the area with a cold pack prior to injecting. BOTOX is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles just under the skin and does not require anesthesia, resulting in only minor discomfort, not pain. Downtime is not expected after the procedure and bruising is uncommon. In general, you may notice results within a day or two but the full effect takes up to 2-3 weeks to show and will last 4-6 months before a repeat treatment is recommended. The reason you need to repeat treatment is that muscle action eventually returns and the wrinkles begin to reappear. As you continue with treatments you will likely notice that the return of wrinkles or lines becomes less severe over time since you are virtually training your muscles to relax.
