Botox® continues to be one of the most popular beauty treatments available today, due to its effectiveness and simplicity. Below, we’ve answered some of the common questions about Botox in Tampa so that you can decide if this treatment is right for you.
What Is Botox® and How Does It Work?
Botox® is a beauty treatment that is made up of a purified protein solution. The magic of this treatment is that it is able to interrupt the single to contract muscles that your nerves send to the brain. It is this repeated muscle contraction that causes fine lines and wrinkles. Because Botox® turns off this signal, your facial muscles no longer contract like the once did, which reduces the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles.
What Can Botox® Treat?
Botox® is able to rejuvenate the face in a number of different ways. This injectable can be used to treat fine lines around your eyes and mouth as well as the deeper wrinkles on your forehead. Botox® can also soften up any dimpling of the chin.
Are There Side Effects with Botox in Tampa?
No, there are no major side effects associated with this treatment. Some patients may experience some tenderness or redness at the injection site, but that will subside within 48 hours or so.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Most of our patients have their treatment done during their lunch hour or even right before picking the kids up from school. You will not need any recovery time after your treatment. We do recommend, however, that your refrain from strenuous workouts and avoid direct sunlight after your treatment.
When Will I See Results?
You will see results from your anti-wrinkle treatment right after the procedure, and these results will improve with time.
How Many Injections Will I Need?
The number of injections will depend on the areas of the face being treated and your desired results. Usually, our patients have one or two areas of the face they want to focus on. We always recommend that you have the anti-aging treatment done every 4-6 months. Regular injections will help you maintain the smooth and tight appearance of your skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people make excellent candidates for this minimally-invasive treatment. It is the perfect treatment for those of any age, because it treats wrinkles and also helps stop them from forming.
