What is Botox Cosmetic Injectable?
BOTOX injectable is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases. BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, and the #1 selling product of its kind in the entire world.
How Does it Work?
BOTOX targets one of the underlying causes of wrinkles — repetitive muscle contractions. We all make thousands of facial expressions every day and while these facial movements are a normal part of the human experience, they can cause dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by movement, to form on the face. BOTOX is made from botulinum toxin, a substance that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that are the cause of dynamic wrinkles.
Botox reduces the activity of target facial muscles, which allow your wrinkles and fine lines a chance to soften and fade.
What Areas Do You Treat?
BOTOX can treat a wide variety of areas including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines
- Chin dimpling
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating, such as the armpit)
What Is A Treatment Like?
Before the treatment call 207-363-2300 and we can coordinate a complimentary consult to discuss the areas you’d like to improve. At the time of treatment you should expect to receive a small number of needle pokes (fairly painless) to areas of concern. The injection is fairly quick, usually lasting no longer than 10 minutes.
Once the treatment is complete, you experience absolutely no downtime, so you can get back to your daily routines as soon as you leave the office! The results of an injection treatment usually begin to appear 24-48 hours after treatment is complete, however it can take up to 7 full days for results to be seen. You will come back for a follow-up appointment 14 days after the treatment to re-evaluate areas. BOTOX is flushed from the system over time and therefore it is necessary to have repeat injection treatments every 3-4 months.
