Does your face look as if it needs a refresh? Is something looking a bit “off” about it, but you are not sure what it is? If you look a little closer at your face in the mirror, you may notice a few fine lines around key locations of your face, such as your eyes, forehead and mouth. You may need to refresh your face with BOTOX® in Lafayette.
A BOTOX® treatment is a simple yet effective way to banish those fine lines and wrinkles from your face without the need for any lengthy surgeries or bevy of topical treatments that clog up your medicine cabinet without doing your face any good. As a minimally-invasive treatment, this is an excellent solution for busy adults with tightly packed schedules.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® has been FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction for quite some time now. It is a purified protein solution that relaxes the muscles it is injected into. While the larger muscles in your face that control your expressions still continue to work, the tiny muscles that make your skin crinkle with each facial expression stay calm.
Within four to seven days of your initial treatment, you will begin to see your great results and will feel that your face has been refreshed. You will still be able to smile, frown and make all of your other facial expressions that are unique to you. However, your skin will no longer show off fine lines as you do so, and the lines that you did have will not be allowed to turn into deeper wrinkles that are harder to treat.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
Because BOTOX® is a minimally-invasive treatment, you do not have to worry about surgery, incisions or general anesthesia. Therefore, it is a very low-risk procedure that only requires a very small needle for tiny injections throughout the treatment area. If you choose to have treatment without any topical anesthetic, you should only feel a brief pinching sensation.
This treatment can be fit into the busiest of schedules. Your appointment will require no downtime, allowing you to get right back to your other activities. You will need to plan to come back to Hubbell Dermatology & Aesthetics in Lafayette within three to four months for a follow-up appointment to continue seeing your refreshed look.
