Botox® (Botulinum toxin) is a popular cosmetic treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Fine lines and wrinkles occur gradually and naturally from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows causing the skin to furrow and fold.
When injected into the skin, Botox® works beneath the surface by blocking nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract by reducing the underlying muscle activity. Botox® treatment gives the skin a smooth and youthful appearance in women and men.
Benefits of Botox® Treatment
Botox® is the number one injectable anti-aging treatment in the world. Botox® injections help reduce the signs of aging and are highly effective for men and women. It can help women and men who are bothered by dynamic wrinkles in looking and feeling years younger. Botox® is excellent for smoothing away worry lines and brow furrows, giving the appearance you of being well-rested, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
Dr. Kole performs Botox® injections for women and men commonly in the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and mouth to reduce
- Forehead lines – known as “worry lines”, horizontal lines produced by repeatedly lifting the eyebrows.
- Frown lines – known as “glabella lines”, the vertical lines between your eyes.
- Crow’s feet – the fine wrinkling lines radiating outwards around the sides of the eye.
- Bunny lines – known as “nose lines” appear as horizontal wrinkles across the ridge of the nose.
Other therapeutic uses of Botox® are the treatment of excessive sweating, muscle spasms, migraine headaches, and teeth grinding.
What Happens During Treatment at Kole Plastic Surgery Center?
When you come for your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Kole discuss your concerns and area of intended Botox® sites. The injections will then be administered by Dr. Kole using an ultra-fine needle, making the treatment process painless and controllable. You’ll be finished in about 15 minutes and ready to go about your day.
Botox® Procedure & Recovery
Recovery from a Botox® treatment is short because most treatments take a few minutes to complete. Treatment involves a series of tiny, localized injections into the muscle directly beneath the wrinkle line causing a mild stinging sensation for a few seconds in the treatment area.
There is no downtime, discomfort is minimal, most people can return to their everyday activities immediately. While some may experience slight swelling and bruising, these typically dissipate quickly.
Botox Recovery Tips
- Refrain from touching/manipulating the treatment area for a few hours.
- Try to remain in an upright position for about three to four hours after treatment.
- Wait patiently for results to manifest. It typically takes 2 to 3 days for results to appear.
- Avoid harsh sunlight or make up application for a few days after Botox® injections.
- Do not perform strenuous exercise or activity for a few days following treatment.
- Inform Dr. Kole immediately if any unusual side effects occur.
How Long Does the Effect of Botox® Last?
Results can be seen within a few days after your treatment depending on dosage, type of injections, the severity of wrinkles, unique facial musculature, and site of injection. Benefits of Botox® last for about three to four months after which the treatment will need to be repeated to keep the desired results.
Be sure to make an appointment with Dr. Kole for your maintenance Botox® treatments on the day of you of current Botox® appointment. With continued use, time needed between injections will increase.
Are Botox® Injections for Men?
Botox® is no longer considered to be exclusive for women. Men are embracing injectable cosmetic enhancements for natural-looking results. Botox® treatment has become mainstream and accessible for men, with no stigma attached.
For men, the most treated area is frown lines between the eyes. If these lines are deep, they can cause a person to look stressed or worried. Reducing and softening these lines can result in a more naturally youthful appearance.
