What is Botox?

Botox is a facial treatment used to eliminate signs of aging that appears in the face, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases. It is made from a botulinum toxin, a substance that is responsible for food poisoning or botulism. However, when delivered by highly-trained professionals, Botox can be administered to individuals in a safe and effective manner. Botox Cosmetic is especially being used for the elimination of wrinkles and for restoring the youthfulness of the face.

What can be treated by Botox?

Botox Cosmetic in Michigan has grown more popular as a treatment for facial signs of aging. Because of aging, stress, and other related factors, the face can lose its firmness and create creases and lines that are unpleasing. When Botox is injected directly to the areas on the face that need treatment, it can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Botox also helps in reducing frown lines that especially appear when individuals reach his or her middle-age years. Botox has been considered as a non-invasive alternative to a facelift.

Aside from facial rejuvenation, Botox is also used to treat people with medical conditions that involve muscle function since the substance is able to paralyze the muscles and stop the spasms. It is also a proven treatment for chronic migraines, excessive sweating, oily skin, and headaches.

What can I expect during a Botox Cosmetic procedure?

Botox is administered through injections. The substance will be injected directly into the desired areas with a very thin needle. Ice may be applied before the injection to desensitize the area.

What should I do after my Botox procedure?

After having completed the treatment, you may be asked to avoid lying down for about two to four hours. Some bruising can be expected, so the patient is advised to avoid taking medications such as aspirin to keep the bruising minimal. You will be given more aftercare instructions by our qualified professionals at Procerus Skin Care to aid your recovery and enhance your overall Botox Cosmetic experience.

When can I expect to see the results of Botox?

The results of Botox usually become noticeable after three to ten days, although this could vary from patient to patient. The results usually last three to four months since it is during this time that the muscles start to return to their normal activity. It could even last sooner than other patients. If you want to keep the outcomes longer, you can avail of follow-up Botox Cosmetic sessions.
