Are you looking for a way to turn back the clock and refresh your appearance without surgery? Acadian Ear, Nose, Throat and Facial Plastic Surgery Center may have the solution for you. Botox is a tried-and-true anti-aging treatment with a long track record of efficacy and safety. Our qualified doctors offer Botox injections for our patients to provide them with a way to erase signs of aging, quickly and comfortably.
Botox is a prescription medication that was used to treat a variety of medical conditions before it was introduced to the cosmetic scene. The active ingredient in the formulation is the botulinum toxin, which in slight amounts can have a positive effect on relaxing muscles. When it is used for cosmetic purposes on the face, it eases muscle contractions that form dynamic lines and wrinkles made when certain facial expressions are made, and can also help smooth out static lines.
Botox was first approved to improve moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows temporarily. Technically known as glabellar lines, they are more commonly referred to as frown lines or the 11s. They are caused by years of squinting, concentrating or frowning. Botox allows you to get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself with the ability to make natural facial expressions without the wrinkles.
Today, Botox is used for a broader range of cosmetic concerns, including horizontal lines across the forehead and subtle lines in the outer corners of the eyes, known as crow's feet. For people who habitually frown, squint, or purse their lips, Botox can also help to prevent the settling of dynamic lines into static wrinkles over time. Our team of experts will assess your concerns to determine whether Botox will provide you with the best possible results. If Botox is not the right option for you, we offer additional cosmetic treatments to address signs of aging and create a more youthful appearance.
Botox injections are quick, taking just about 10 minutes to strategically place a few injections in areas that will help to lessen the appearance of the wrinkles that concern you. The treatment is relatively comfortable, so patients typically do not require any anesthetic or numbing cream beforehand. There is no downtime or recovery after the Botox procedure, which means you can get natural, noticeable results even during your lunch hour. In fact, most of our patients return to their daily routines right away without any visible signs they had a cosmetic procedure performed.
You will likely begin to see the results of your Botox treatment within a few days, with significant improvement within seven days. Those results may continue to improve for up to one month, so you can schedule your Botox injection shortly before a vacation or big event to enjoy your rejuvenated appearance for that special occasion.
Visible results last three to four months before a subsequent treatment is needed to maintain your more youthful, vibrant look. We will schedule your next Botox injection about three months after your first, so you can ensure you keep up your improved appearance over the long-term.
Our doctors can help you determine whether Botox is the right anti-aging solution for you. We also offer dermal fillers for the mid and lower face and laser skin rejuvenation that produces an allover healthy glow to your skin. You can schedule these treatments in separate sessions or at the same time to further enhance your results. We will be happy to talk with you about your aesthetic goals and the best way to achieve them at your initial consultation with us.
While Botox is an effective anti-aging treatment when performed alone, it can produce even more dramatic results when combined with other procedures. Dermal fillers can be used to address additional aging symptoms that have to do with volume loss in the face, while professional skin rejuvenation procedures like chemical peels and laser treatments put the finishing touches on your complexion. All our procedures are performed by our licensed estheticians, so you can rest assured no matter which treatment plan you choose, you will receive the highest level of care and safety. Professional skincare products are also available through our office to enhance and prolong your positive results at home.
Most of these side effects can be minimized by selecting an experienced injector, like the doctors of Acadian Ear, Nose, Throat and Facial Plastic Surgery Center, who are well-versed in Botox injections and knows how to administer them to produce the best possible results with minimal risks involved. You can rest assured that when you choose Acadian for Botox or any cosmetic treatment, you will be provided the highest level of care and service, with treatments that are safe, effective and time tested.
