What You Should Know About Botox®

It seems that many people are looking for a way to turn back the hands of time and get a younger-looking appearance. In fact, most people would probably enjoy saying goodbye to some of those fine lines and wrinkles and enjoying a suppler and more radiant appearance. Well, now you can with Botox.

Botox is a great cosmetic treatment for those looking to smooth away wrinkles caused by frowning, smiling and other facial expressions. Botox injects botulinum toxin A into areas of the face to temporarily paralyze specific muscles to prevent them from contracting. This results in an instantly smoother appearance. Plus, Botox is completely safe. You’ll find that Botox may become one of the easiest anti-aging treatments you could get.

While the thought of having needles injected into the skin may be enough to turn some people away, we are happy to say that Botox is virtually painless. If you can deal with a tiny pinprick than you will not have any issues getting Botox treatment. And if you are still a bit hesitant, you can also ask us about numbing the skin prior to the injections.

Botox is a great cosmetic treatment because it only takes a few days for the results to take full effect and there is absolutely no recovery time. There’s a reason they say that men and women can get their Botox treatment during their lunch hour. After all, it only takes a couple minutes to complete, so you won’t have to spend a lot of your precious time sitting in our office.

And while Botox isn’t permanent (results usually last between four to six months), you’ll be happy to hear that you can continue to come to us for follow-up treatments if you like your results and would like to maintain them. It’s that simple!

Botox® Injections In Chicago , IL
Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines.  When you start to experience the signs of aging, Botox® is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox® blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles.  Botox® essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results from Botox® are visible within two to four days with results that can last anywhere from four to six months.

Botox® cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:

  • Botox in Chicago, IL
    Worry lines in your forehead
  • Lines between the eyebrows
  • Smile lines
  • Laugh lines from nose to mouth
  • Crow’s feet
Generally, anyone in good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox® treatments.
Most patients require re-treatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform.  Botox® treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
