Botox is an injection containing a particular protein (botulinum). This protein, injected cosmetically, affects the nerves and muscles of the face. By blocking the nerves and decreasing muscle activity, it smooths out wrinkles and lines on your face. Within a week of the injection, the smoother skin will have you looking younger and more energetic, with those results usually lasting between 3-4 months. It’s a far cheaper alternative to invasive plastic surgeries, but the results can be dramatic, taking years or even decades off your appearance!
The procedure itself only takes around ten minutes and is minimally invasive. One of the trained and licensed doctors at New England Laser Lipo will meet with you, discuss any questions you may have, and perform the injection itself. Afterwards, you may notice a slight redness in the area of the injection, which should resolve itself within an hour.
While Botox injections are a great choice for most people looking to improve their looks and eliminate wrinkles, there are a few people who shouldn’t have this procedure done. If you are allergic to any ingredient in Botox, have an infection where your injection would be done, or are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, contact New England Laser Lipo to discuss alternative options.
