What is Botox Used For?
Botox has a wide range of uses but is most well known for its ability to reduce facial wrinkles. It has become a Must Have with Socialites, Celebrities, and the everyday woman and man wanting to Turn Back the Hands of Time. In addition to giving a more youthful appearance, Botox has more surprising medical applications. Botox can be used to relieve everything from migraines, neck spasms, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and even lazy eyes in some situations.
How Long Does Botox Take to Work?
Botox injections are a quick cosmetic procedure taking only minutes to complete procedure and do not require anesthesia. We offer a topical numbing cream to ensure a comfortable procedure experience. The full effects of the Botox treatment appear approximately three to seven days after the injections. This timeline will fluctuate from patient to patient.
How Long Does Botox Last?
While it is important to note that experiences will vary from client to client, the normal range of effectiveness for Botox is usually from 3 to 6 months for relaxing the dynamic wrinkles of the skin. (In rare situations Botox can last as short as 2 months or as long as 9 months.) The number of sessions also tends to have an impact, with regular Botox sessions a client can see a softening of harsh wrinkles in the skin even when the Botox is wearing off.
Is Botox Safe?
As with many things, Botox is safe in moderation. While Botox also known as the botulinum toxin is a life-threatening poison, however, it is safe for use in small doses – such as the amounts used in Botox cosmetic procedures. In fact, much larger doses are used in disorders such as paralysis and neck torticollis – (severe neurological and muscular disorders) with no untoward side effects. All Botox procedures performed at Dr. Burkenstock Skin Body Health in New Orleans follow strict FDA guidelines to ensure that the procedures are as safe as possible.
Some clients may experience bruising or swelling near the points of injection. To reduce the likelihood of this it is recommended that you avoid alcohol, Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other anti-inflammatory medicines one week prior to the procedure. In addition, supplements such as fish oil, vitamin E and CoQ10 should also be held one week before treatment as these products may increase bruising. Please consult your physician before stopping any prescribed medication for a procedure.
