If you’re dealing with horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, vertical frown lines, and other facial wrinkles, consider Botox® injections. Botox® in Fort Myers requires no downtime and provides patients with noticeable wrinkle-reduction results within one to two days after treatment.
What Is Botox®?
Over time, repeated facial-muscle movements like chewing and forming various facial expressions can result in the development of fine facial wrinkles. These signs of aging can drastically reduce one’s self-confidence.
Botox® is an injectable treatment that works beneath the surface of the skin to block nerve signals to the facial muscles. This temporary reduction of muscle activity allows wrinkles to fade away.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® is a very versatile product that can be used by a wide range of people. It is a great minimally invasive option for men and women who want to get rid of facial wrinkles without going under the knife.
Those who are pregnant or nursing, as well as those who have any history of neuromuscular disease, should not undergo this type of cosmetic treatment.
If you have harsh midface wrinkles like nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or parentheses lines, Botox® may not be the ideal injectable treatment option for you.
The Botox® Treatment Session
The Botox® procedure is a fairly simple one—it can be done within 10 to 15 minutes. This makes it the perfect procedure to undergo during one’s lunch break.
A topical or local anesthetic may be administered for patient comfort, though in many cases, it will not be necessary. Using a very thin needle, Botox® will be injected into the specific muscles that are causing the fine wrinkles to appear. The number of units of Botox® needed will depend on the patient’s aesthetic goals.
What to Expect After a Botox® Treatment
One of the biggest benefits of using Botox® is that there is no recovery time necessary after the injections are done. You can go back to all your normal daily activities. It’s highly recommended that you avoid massaging or excessively rubbing the treatment areas shortly after your treatment session to prevent any sort of irritation.
Most Botox® patients will report seeing visible results within 24 to 48 hours after their treatment is complete. These results will last for three to four months. Since Botox® is only a short-term solution, you will need to come in for regular maintenance treatments to preserve your results.
The Cost of Botox®
The total price of Botox® is different from patient to patient based on their specific needs and goals. The number of treatment sites addressed can affect the overall cost, as can the number of units of Botox® needed. The price of treatment can be discussed during your consultation.
