BOTOX® injections and the use of dermal fillers can work wonders for the appearance. Our Little Rock plastic surgery and cosmetic skin care center is proud to offer BOTOX® cosmetic injections as an alternative to surgical treatments.
Let's take a moment to discuss BOTOX® injections and how they can be of benefit to you. Our focus will be on the results and outcomes of treatment.
About BOTOX® Injections
BOTOX® injections are a type of cosmetic injectable that can help reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe form of botulinum toxin, used to prevent muscle movements and promote a younger looking appearance.
How BOTOX® Injections Work
BOTOX® injections target portions of the face in which muscle contractions cause lines and wrinkles to form. The BOTOX® Cosmetic will stop muscle contractions from occurring, preventing agitation of the skin and allowing these lines and wrinkles to fade away.
Side Effects of BOTOX® Injections
After undergoing BOTOX® injection treatment, the following temporary side effects are common:
- Soreness in the injection site
- Redness around the injection site
- Swelling or bruising around the injection site
- Flu-like symptoms
Thankfully these side effects are temporary and resolve on their own within a day or so.
What Are BOTOX® Injection Results Like?
After undergoing BOTOX® injection treatment, patients often experience improved overall appearance. They tend to look years younger, and are often far more refreshed looking than they were before the procedure.
Thanks to BOTOX® injections, the dynamic wrinkles will not be visible and patients will have smooth and soft skin free from unsightly lines.
How Do BOTOX® Injections Compare to Facial Plastic Surgery?
The results from BOTOX® injections are comparable to the results achieved through a facelift or other kinds of facial rejuvenation surgeries. Given, the results of BOTOX® injections will wear off in a few months, but they offer great outcomes without scarring, bruising, downtime, or major complication risks.
How Long Do BOTOX® Injections Last?
BOTOX® injections typically last anywhere between three to six months. At the end of that period, the dynamic wrinkles of the face will become visible again.
Repeat BOTOX® Injection Treatments
After the effects of the BOTOX® injection treatment have worn off, it's possible to undergo additional BOTOX® injections as needed to prolong the results. This allows people to experience the effects of a facial plastic surgery procedure without having to go under the knife. People can look younger for years to come thanks to carefully planned repeat procedures.
