Botox® is a cosmetic injectable option for the temporary treatment of wrinkles and fine line. Botox has become increasingly popular and continues to be a preferred treatment for patients looking for a more youthful apperance.
Is Botox safe?
Yes. Botox is approved by the FDA for the relief of wrinkles and facial expression lines. Botox injections are made from a protein that temporarily freezes the muscles that create deep expression line and blocks the nerves that cause frown lines and wrinkles in the face.
What can Botox be used for?
Botox is most commonly used to treat wrinkles or deep crevices on the forehead, around the eyes, face, and around the nose. Botox helps patients release tension lines in the face for a more youthful apperance.
How long does Botox treatment take?
Your initial consultation will include one-on-one time with Dr. Willis. Dr. Willis will help you vocalize your cosmetic goals and determine the amount and location of injections necessary to achieve your results. Treatment with Botox only takes about 10 minutes to administer.
How soon will I see results from Botox?
Patients typically see their optimal results in just seven days. It is important to note that the effects of Botox are not permanent. For most people, the results will last four to six months.
Is Botox right for me?
A consultation with Dr. Willis will help to determine if Botox is the right options for addressing your cosmetic concerns. Healthy people between the ages of 18 and 65 are usually considered ideal candidates for Botox. You should not get Botox if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.
