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 appearance of crow's feet. Or whatever you call them.
This minimally invasive, FDA-approved treatment requires no downtime, so you can come in for a quick treatment on your lunch break. And our nurses and physician assistants are experts in administering it properly. They use a very fine needle to inject Botox right into the facial muscles, completely minimizing the look of wrinkles.
What to Anticipate
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the look of both moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, 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 right into the facial muscles that are responsible for unpleasant wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore diminish 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 bit different. Our professionals will work with you to customize a treatment plan based on precisely what your needs are.
How long does Botox typically last?
The results of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Several variables can influence how long the results last. As the product wears off, muscle action returns gradually, and the previously treated lines and wrinkles may start to reappear, and you might need another treatment. A few of the variables that might shorten or extend the effects are: your age, sun damage, condition of skin, facial structure and expressions, diet, and your past experiences with Botox and other wrinkle relaxers.
When will I see results?
You may begin to notice Botox results within 72 hours with the maximum effect noticeable at 14 days. Results may vary.
Is Botox safe?
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are relatively risk-free when done by an experienced injector. It has shown to be an effective and valuable restorative protein when dosage, frequency of treatment, and range of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to make sure you receive the results you are seeking is to only receive injections from a highly skilled provider, such as the medical and nursing professionals at Platinum Sculpt.
Who should not receive Botox?
While most individuals 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 regarding whether or not you might be a good candidate, one of our experts will be happy to answer any questions you may have. With any clinical procedures, it is best to discuss the procedure with your physician prior to starting treatment.
