Botox injections provide an easy, quick, and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Botox is one of the most popular options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation available. At Westford Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we can provide men and women in Boston with natural-looking results from their Botox treatment.
What is Botox?
Botox contains botulinum toxin type A which is a purified protein derived from bacteria. The botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator that can prevent nerves from sending signals to the muscles which can cause temporary paralysis of the muscles. Botox injections are non-surgical treatments that temporarily relax muscles which diminishes wrinkles. Botox has a local effect where it is placed and does not affect other muscles in the body.
What to Expect from Your Botox Treatment
Your Botox injections will be performed in-office at Westford Dermatology and Cosmetic Center. The skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic can be applied to make the injections process as comfortable as possible. The areas of the face where the injections will be made may be marked. The Botox will then be injected into the marked areas of the face. The process typically takes around 30 minutes to complete.
Botox Recovery and Results
There is no downtime required following Botox injections. Some patients may choose to lie down for an hour or so, but you should be able to resume your normal activities right away. There may be a small amount of swelling and redness around the areas where the injections were made but these issues should subside over the next day or so.
The full effect may take up to two weeks and it usually lasts four months. Wrinkle relaxers have been used for over ten years and it is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States.
