Botox / Dysport
After years of squinting, frowning, laughing, frowning, worrying and smoking the skin around the eyes, forehead, and lips often develops deep expression lines and wrinkles. These wrinkles can make you appear tired, older, or just stressed. For years physicians have been using BOTOX Cosmetic as a treatment to correct these wrinkles and reduce the appearance of stress and aging. When considering Botox Cosmetic treatments in Oxford at Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Michelle Naegele has what it takes to deliver the results you are looking for. Her approach to Botox treatment is conservative with our goal being a more natural and youthful appearance.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic, is produced by Allergan, Inc. It is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. For over a decade ophthalmologists have used BOTOX Cosmetic for its original intention, the treatment of blepharospasm. Physicians have utilized BOTOX Cosmetic for years as a cosmetic treatment to correct visible signs of aging and stress.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
The movements and contractions of the facial muscles are controlled by signals they receive from the brain. BOTOX Cosmetic simply prohibits the muscle from responding to these messages. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled.
What is a BOTOX treatment like?
BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into the specific muscle with a very fine needle while it is contracting and causing the wrinkles and lines on the face. Treatment is safe, effective and takes less than 10 minutes. The pain felt is minimal like a tiny “pin prick” and no anesthetic is required. You may resume regular activities Immediately following treatment with BOTOX®Cosmetic.
How long does a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment last?
The effects of Botox Cosmetic usually last from 3 to 4 months, and fade away gradually. Following several Botox Cosmetic treatments, the results may last 4 to 8 months or longer.
How quickly will I see results with BOTOX?
Typically, the effect of BOTOX Cosmetic is visible within 3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 10 to 14 days. Once the muscle relaxes, the skin will soften and you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
