    Everything You Need to Know About Botox Injections

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Many individuals today choose to undergo cosmetic surgery in order to combat the signs of aging, and while surgery is a great way to turn back the clock, some of us would prefer a less invasive approach to anti-aging. That’s why the Center For Facial & Cosmetic Surgery offers Botox injections and other cosmetic injectables. Read over this article for more information on Botox.

    Uses and Indications

    Botox injections utilize a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily block the nerve signals that allow for the contraction of certain facial muscles. For this reason, Botox is typically used to eliminate or reduce the look of lines that are created when making facial expressions, rather than those wrinkles that are always apparent. If you are in good general health with moderate to severe wrinkles between your eyebrows, forehead creases, or crows feet at the corners of your eyes—Botox injections may be right for you.

    Treatment Process

    After cleansing the areas to be treated, your surgeon will inject the Botox solution into specific muscles—however, the number of injections needed will vary based on the severity of the wrinkles and your other facial features. In some cases, your surgeon may utilize a topical anesthetic or use a Botox solution that already has an anesthetic mixed in for more comfortable treatment. The treatment itself usually takes 15 minutes to complete.

    Recovery and Results

    Most patients do not require any downtime or recovery following Botox injections. The results will typically start to become noticeable within a few days and become fully apparent after one week. In most cases, the results should last three to four months—but repeated injections may actually help postpone the development of new wrinkles.

    Find out if Botox injections are right for you by contacting the Center For Oral & Facial Surgery at (619) 312-4417. You can also visit us online for more information on dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, and our other San Diego services.
