What Is Botox?
Botox cosmetic is a procedure available to Hamilton, NJ women and men that helps reduce the appearance of frown lines. Frown lines are wrinkles that accumulate between the eyebrows and around the nose and eyes which have a tendency to make a person look older and tired. Botox was approved for use by the FDA in 2002 for both men and women.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox involves injecting a prescription medicine directly into the muscle in the brow area and forehead. This medicine helps the muscles relax, which is what reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Patients can expect to experience slight discomfort. Most people compare the discomfort that they feel during Botox to an ant or fly bite.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from Botox?
Botox is a safe procedure that does not require sedation or anesthesia. Patients will be able to leave the Hamilton Med Spa as soon as their Botox procedure has been completed.
How Long Will It Take to See The Results? How Long Will The Results Last?
The full results of Botox will be visible within one week. The results of Botox typically last about four months. However, it is important to note that individual results can vary.
Do I Need to Do Anything Special to Prepare for Treatment?
People who take anti-inflammatory medications will be asked to stop two weeks prior to their procedure. This will minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising. Patients will also be asked to avoid drinking alcohol at least one week prior to getting this procedure.
Who Should Not Get Botox?
