And our nurses and physician assistants are experts in administering it correctly. They use a very fine needle to inject Botox into the face muscles, totally minimizing the look of wrinkles.
What to Anticipate
Botox Frequently Asked Questions
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 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 no 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 minimize its ability to contract and create unsightly wrinkles.
How much does Botox cost?
The price depends on you and your needs. Everybody's a little different. Our consultants will work with you to personalize a treatment package based on precisely what your needs are.
How long does Botox normally last?
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months. Several variables can affect how long the effects 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 may lessen or prolong the results 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 might start to see Botox results within 72 hours with the maximum result visible at 14 days. Results might vary.
Is Botox safe?
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and injections are relatively safe when conducted by an experienced injector. It has proven to be a successful and valuable restorative protein when dosage, frequency of treatment, and range of treated clinical conditions are considered. The best way to make sure you get the results you are seeking is to only get injections from a highly experienced provider, such as the medical and nursing professionals 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 surgical procedure, have trouble swallowing, or have weakness in your forehead muscles. If you have any concerns as to whether you may be a good candidate, one of our professionals will be happy to answer any questions you may have. With any clinical procedures, it is best to discuss the treatment with your doctor before starting treatment.
