Botox® Treatment Combats Wrinkles and Facial Lines
Are you looking for a solution to your aging skin? When searching for a way to improve your skin’s appearance, look no further. At Siragusa Vein and Laser, we offer Botox® injections for Nashville area patients. The procedure is one of the safest available for the reduction or softening of wrinkles. We most frequently use it to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes (Crow’s Feet). It may also be used to treat lines around the mouth and those on the neck. A few tiny injections calm the muscles and allows for a smoother, more relaxed appearance. The full effect may take between 3-6 days to appear. Because Botox® has become so competitive, it has become commonplace for some doctors to dilute their Botox® to less than full strength. Our Botox® is always FULL STRENGTH, which gives you maximum results from every treatment.
While Botox® is a well-known brand name, do you know the benefits that Botox® has to offer you? Let’s take a look at the top four benefits:
- Botox® is Non-Surgical
Many people might think that the only solution to gaining a more youthful appearance is with surgery, however, some of the best treatments are non-surgical, including Botox Cosmetic®. This is a minimally invasive, five-minute procedure that can help with frown lines as well as wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, on the neck and around the mouth. Best of all there is no downtime and you can go back to work or out with friends immediately following your injection.
- Botox® is Proven to Lift the Brow
As we age, our brow may drop or lower making it very difficult to attain a youthful, feminine arch to our eyebrows. With a small amount of Botox® in just the right spot, Dr. Siragusa is able to “lift” the brow, which makes your face look less tired, giving you a more youthful appearance.
- Botox® May Even Reduce Migraines
It has been shown that Botox® can sometimes improve a patient’s health, as they begin to exhibit fewer to no migraine headaches. While it improves your appearance, it may also be beneficial for those who suffer from chronic headaches.
- Botox® Decreases Excessive Sweating
Men and women might experience excessive sweating under their arms, which can be embarrassing—dealing with it daily. Instead of constant maintenance, Botox® can help lessen the amount of sweat produced to minimize excessive sweating and the embarrassment associated with it.
How does Botox® work?
A drop of Botox® is injected (with a tiny needle) into the muscle that creates the wrinkle. When Botox® is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle weakens. As the muscle becomes weak, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear. If a specific muscle can’t move, it can’t cause a wrinkle. Botox® treatment does not affect normal facial expressions.
Are there any side effect?
Side effects of Botox® are minimal and rare, and most commonly involve slight discomfort upon injection. This may be minimized by the use of cold packs immediately prior to the injection. Bruising at the sight of injection may occur but is not common. One percent of patients develop a slight lowering or ptosis of one eyelid and, rarely, asymmetry of facial expression. These effects are temporary and may not even be noticed by the patient. You will see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 5 months. After that, the muscle action returns. When frown lines reappear, a repeat treatment is necessary to regain the results.
Botox® has been safely and successfully used in wrinkle therapy for more then 10 years. In the amounts used for wrinkle therapy, the only possible side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection. Our offices perform more Botox® procedures than many others in Middle Tennessee. This not only enhances our expertise; it also allows us to offer very competitive rates. At Siragusa Vein and Laser Center, you will always receive maximum strength, fresh Botox®. Although individuals may have slightly varied outcomes, we will work with you to achieve your most optimal results.
