    Botox Treatment in Prescott Arizona

    Our BOTOX procedure works by decreasing the strength of muscle contraction. Essentially, when BOTOX is injected into a muscle, the muscle weakens.

     

    So how is BOTOX used to enhance your appearance and to slow the aging process?

     

    To understand this, we first need to understand how a wrinkle is formed. Anatomically, our facial muscles exist under the facial skin. When the muscle contracts during facial expression, the skin moves and a crease is formed.

     

    Normally this is not a problem, but as we age, the skin thins and its elasticity diminishes. So with each expression, a line starts to form that gets deeper and deeper with time. This is the evolution of a wrinkle. The upper face is the best example of this process, as most of the wrinkles in this region occur as a direct result of muscle contraction.

    This preventative process has been well established in an identical twin study. One twin received BOTOX starting in her mid-thirties while the other did not. 13 years later, there was obvious difference in the presence of wrinkles between the twins, confirming the preventative value of BOTOX.

    Botox tips and what to expect

    What to Expect?

     

    Injectables, including Botox and dermal fillers, are powerful and safe non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can reverse the common signs of aging. There are many types of injectables, each with the ability to address different problem areas, from smoothing forehead wrinkles to correcting hollow cheeks.

     

    While injectable treatments are fast, relatively painless, and require very little recovery time, it is always beneficial for patients to understand how these treatments work before opting for them.

    Before botox supplements

    Before Your Treatment

     

    Many injectors will advise patients to stop taking the following medications and supplements one week prior to their procedure and to continue abstaining from them for 3-5 days after treatment:

    • Aspirin
    • Ibuprofen or related NSAIDs
    • St John’s Wort
    • Vitamin E
    • Fish Oil/Omega-3 fatty acids
    • Gingko Biloba
    • Ginseng
    Botox potential side effects

    Potential Side Effects

     

    Overall, the side effects of injectables are relatively minor (one of the reasons why injectables have become so popular).

     

    Common effects from filler include bruising, swelling, redness, or tenderness around the injection site, all of which will resolve after a few days to a week. It is recommended to allot a full week for recovery before attending any big event after filler.

     

    With neurotoxin, the patient is typically fine to attend social engagements the same day since the side effects are usually limited to 30-60 minutes of temporary swelling at the sites of injection.

    Botox Q&A

    Botox Q&A

     

    How does BOTOX work?

     

    BOTOX works by inhibiting the messaging system between the brain and specific muscles of the face. These messages tell the muscles when to contract in response to certain facial expressions like smiling or frowning. When the messages are blocked, the muscles aren't “told” to contract, which means wrinkles don't form.

     

    What kinds of wrinkles can BOTOX treat?

     

    BOTOX only works on so-called dynamic wrinkles, lines and creases that form when the facial muscles contract and pull on skin tissue. These wrinkles include crow's feet (“squint” lines by the corners of your eyes), horizontal forehead lines (rhytids) and vertical frown lines between your eyebrows (glabellar lines). BOTOX does not work to correct wrinkling that occurs as a result of skin laxity (static wrinkles).

     

    What is the BOTOX procedure like?

     

    After a careful evaluation of your skin, specific injection points will be identified, depending on where treatment is being performed. BOTOX is injected using a very fine needle, and depending on the area being treated, several injections may be needed to get the best effect. The entire procedure takes just a few minutes, and most patients experience very minor discomfort or none at all. After treatment, there may be some temporary minor swelling or redness that will quickly resolve.

    Botox Q&A (continued)

     

    When soon will I notice results?

     

    You'll begin to see results a few days after treatment with improvement continuing for several weeks. Results usually last 4-6 months.

     

    How often will I need a touch-up?

     

    In most cases, re-injections every four to six months will enable you to maintain your effects. Many people find that after several injections, lines and wrinkles become less severe, so touch-ups may not be needed quite as often.

     

    Does insurance cover BOTOX injections?

     

    No, BOTOX for wrinkle correction is considered a cosmetic procedure and it is not covered by medical insurance.
