BOTOX® Injection Results: What Patients Should Know
By Dr. Suzanne Yee on July 14, 2017
People want to look their best, but they don't necessarily want to undergo surgery. This helps explain the popularity of cosmetic injectables. 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.
