Fine lines, frown lines, how-did-those-get-there lines. Whatever you call them, there's a solution at Platinum Sculpt. Botox smoothes wrinkles on the forehead, treats the lines in between the eyes, and improves the look of crow's feet. Or whatever you call them.
This minimally invasive, FDA-approved treatment requires zero downtime, so you can come in for a quick treatment on your lunch break. And our nurses and physician assistants are experts in conducting it correctly. They use a very fine needle to inject Botox right into the face muscles, totally reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
What to Expect
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, moderate to severe crow's feet, and forehead lines in adults. Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, this treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime.
How does Botox work?
Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore decrease its ability to contract and create unpleasant wrinkles.
How much does Botox cost?
The price depends on you and your needs. Everyone's a little different. Our experts will work with you to customize a treatment plan based on exactly what your needs are.
How long does Botox normally last?
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Several aspects can influence how long the results last. As the product wears away, muscle action returns gradually, and the previously treated lines and wrinkles may start to reappear, and you may need another treatment. Some of the variables that might lessen or prolong the effects are: your age, sun damage, condition of skin, facial structure and expressions, diet, and your previous experiences with Botox and other wrinkle relaxers.
When will I see results?
You might start to see Botox results within 72 hours with the maximum result noticeable at 14 days. Results might vary.
Is Botox safe?
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are fairly safe when conducted by an experienced injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable restorative protein when dosage, frequency of treatment, and variety of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to ensure you get the results you are seeking is to only receive injections from a highly experienced provider, such as the medical and nursing experts at Platinum Sculpt.
Who should not receive Botox?
While most people aged 18 to 65 are excellent candidates for Botox and wrinkle relaxers, you should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a skin infection or other condition in the area to be treated, are allergic to any ingredients in Botox, Dysport, or any other botulinum toxin brand, have had a facial surgery, have trouble swallowing, or have weakness in your forehead muscles. If you have any concerns as to whether or not you may be a good candidate, one of our professionals will be happy to answer any questions you may have. With any medical procedures, it is best to discuss the procedure with your physician prior to beginning treatment.
