Botox Q & A
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic is one of the best-known and most widely used aesthetic products on the market today.
As you age, wrinkles inevitably develop. Wrinkles are so common that they even have names like frown lines, crow’s feet, or “elevens” between the eyebrows. These wrinkles can not only add years to your appearance but can also make you look unhappy, even annoyed.
Botox® injections make you look younger and more relaxed. Regular Botox® treatments also act as a defense against the effects of time, preventing new wrinkles from developing.
Vein Care Medical Center specializes in treating unwanted veins, but they also have considerable skill in treating unwanted wrinkles as well.
How does Botox® work?
Botox works by temporarily freezing the muscles responsible for creating your wrinkles. The active ingredient in Botox® is a botulinum toxin, which has a paralyzing effect.
Botox® Cosmetic uses a refined form of botulinum toxin, which acts on the nerves in your face. These nerves control your facial muscles. The Botox® stops signals from the nerves getting through to your muscles.
Preventing these muscles from contracting means wrinkles can’t form. That leaves you with smoother skin without changing your features. Botox® treatment means that without the need for any surgery, you can have more relaxed and youthful-looking skin.
Is Botox® treatment safe?
Providing you always receive treatment from a qualified professional like Dr. Landau, your Botox® treatment is very safe. Botox® was the first treatment of its kind to receive FDA approval and has been used on millions of people around the world.
It’s possible to experience minor side effects like discomfort in the treated area, skin irritation, or swelling after your Botox® treatment. However, these are minimal and soon disappear. Serious side effects are rare.
You don’t need to worry about looking frozen or anyone being able to tell you’ve had an aesthetic procedure, either. Your face looks natural and you won’t have any trouble making facial expressions.
