Use Botox to improve your appearance without the need for surgery
Almost everyone has heard of Botox by now. However, what is it, and what can it do? Dr. Robyn Roberts and her team of professionals at Splendid Aesthetics in Kyle, Texas, can educate you on Botox and how it can help turn back the hands of time!
What is Botox?
Botox is most commonly used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. These injections, which feature a drug made from the toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, help temporarily relax certain muscles. Botox helps alleviate those lines and wrinkles by keeping them from contracting. These lines and wrinkles sometimes referred to as “dynamic wrinkles,” are caused by contractions of the muscles. By stopping this, you can, in turn, reduce their appearance and enjoy a more youthful final look.
How long will Botox injections last?
Botox injections take approximately one week to show the final results and can last between three and 12 months. This depends on the condition being treated. They are considered relatively safe and generally do not cause any long-term effects. Botox also has FDA approval and has been used in the field of cosmetics for decades!
What can be achieved using Botox injections?
If you are experiencing any of the following, you could benefit from a Botox treatment:
- Facial wrinkles
- Severe underarm sweating
- Muscle contractures
- Lazy eye
- Chronic migraines
- Eye twitching or uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm)
- Neck spasms (cervical dystonia)
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
As you can see, Botox is used for more than just cosmetic purposes, making it a versatile injectable in many fields of medicine!
What is the recovery time needed after Botox injections?
Because Botox does not require any recovery time, you can resume your normal activities after the injection. It is recommended to wait 24 hours before exercising, however. Our team will provide aftercare instructions to help you in the days following your injections and to educate you further on the results you can expect.
